RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
The location of this property is absolutely stunning. The building itself is beautiful.
There is a small seating area at the door of East Wing which overlooks the parking area. Unfortunately there is not a formal seating area overlapping the stunning grounds and that would be a wonderful addition. There are a couple of picnic tables on the grass but that isn't quite the same. There is a lovely seating area but we believed it was for the Garden Apartment.
Inside the property there is quite a staircase to the landing, the landing itself is very nicely presented, but the staircase is rather austere with a very dated handrail. some softening of this area would have a big impact.
Inside the apartment it is quite wonderful. The kitchen is a good size, with dining area. it is well stocked with plates, cutlery, mugs and cooking dishes. A couple of bigger pans would be helpful, there were only four of us so the pans were fine in size but we love to cook and if there had been 8 of us we would really would have had to buy pans. There is a lovely dining table and very good solid chairs. It would be cramped in that room with 8 people though with the table pulled out to seat everyone. The fridge is small, but there is a fridge freezer in the utility room. Unfortunately that is also small. If I had been cooking for 8 people for a week that would have been a real struggle, and we love to cook even on holiday.
I loved having a dishwasher for the time, as we don't have one at home it was a treat!
The living room is very comfy and has extra touches like binoculars to see the deer! It is a shame that it doesn't have the big windows overlooking the splendid grounds though.
The bedrooms are extremely comfortable, spacious and have lovely thick, quality bedding and towels, the lovely toiletries to be used. The bathroom in the master bedroom is very dark, too dark to shave and the bathroom door does not shut which is not ideal.
The grounds are beautiful, but sadly are very restricted with 'private' signs stopping us. It left us very unsure where we could walk and where we couldn't, even with the description in the visitors folder. However the views over the garden are beautiful.
Overall it is an absolutely wonderful property in a magnificent setting. The owner is also extremely pleasant and helpful. With a few touches it would certainly get the full five stars from us.
We had six adults and the apartment was very spacious and comfortable. Great village location with amazing pastoral views from all windows. So relaxing we did not want to leave. Great quintessential English country village. Looking forward to our next visit.
30th Birthday Celebration
Rented Geltsdale from 18th to 21st June 2016 for party of 7 to celebrate daughter's 30th birthday having lived for 5 very happy years in the beautiful village of Wetheral during the 1980s.
Rental area is the East Wing of a very large and extremely attractive and impressive country house set in several acres within the heart of the village and only 10 mins from Carlisle City Centre. Property is tastefully furnished and equiped to an extremely high standard with exquisite views over the properties extensive manicured gardens and the surrounding countryside.
Guests are provided with a free Visitors Membership Pass to the nearby Crown Hotel Spa and Leisure facilities (10 min walk) which are a welcome indoor option if weather is poor. Rental owners, David and Julia Hogarth are resident in the main property and are on hand and always happy to deal with any problems or requests.
Located just off Junction 43 of the M6 and 3 or 4 minutes from the A69 Hexham/Newcastle Road, the property is ideally situated for exploring the Lake District or Nothhumbria and Hadrian's Wall.
Within a few minutes walking distance visitors can access the Village Green with a shop, Post Office, Railway Station (Carlisle/Newcastle) and local Bus sevices. and a choice of 3 pubs - all serving a high standard of food.(Fantails Restaurant is a converted Farm property providing excellent food in a great environmeant - exposed timbers, stone walls, several working fireplaces, views over Village Green, and largely lit by candles).
An excellent quality property in a beautiful, relaxing rural environment - but with easy access to all the attractions and amenities of the Lakes District, Eden Valley and Northumbria.
We had a marvelous time and will definately use Geltsdale and othe Lakes Cottages properties again in the future.
Three Generation Wedding Party
Excellent accommodation with lovely views and regular visits from the deer. Ideal set up for 3 generations to enjoy a wedding reception at Warwick Hall. Recommend Wheatsheaf Inn in the village for good food and very friendly staff.
High quality flat in a lovely location
This is a fantastic property forming the upper East Wing of a large country house. The accommodation and fittings are very hight standard and it is both warm and comfortable and fully equipped. Our kids loved the pirate themed room. There are great views with lots of wildlife including deer and peasants. There is good wifi. Access to the leisure club in the village is a great bonus for swimming in the warm pool with the kids. We found numerous walks locally and most encountered a great county pub. The Wheatsheaf is by far the cosiest and with a good local atmosphere. Do walk over the Viaduct, to the caves and to Warick on Eden. We could not fault this property.
