About Camellia Cottage

Camellia Cottage is a charming holiday home in Cumbria, sleeping eight guests in four bedrooms with a high standard of finishing and furnishing throughout. It's in the village of Nenthead, within walking distance of a fantastic cafe and the River Nent. There are fantastic footpaths from the front door, and the village is also on the famous C2C cycling route. The scenery is so spectacular that it'll inspire you to leap out of bed and start exploring - right after a hearty Cumbrian breakfast, that is! Camellia Cottage is ideal for families and friends, including those with children and dogs. It's next to Cranmore House, which sleeps six people in three bedrooms. Depending on availability, you can book the properties to accommodate extended families or separated families who want to holiday together.

Nenthead is the highest village in Cumbria with wonderful dark skies and the North Pennines Observatory just 20 minutes away. It's in the heart of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and part of the original UNESCO European Geopark. It is within walking distance of the Northumberland border and within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Lake District National Park. Climb mountains, plumb the depths of extensive caving systems, cycle through moorland and wander through woods - it's all here and waiting for you with endless miles of footpaths, cycling routes, mountain bike trails and bridleways. With all of this on your doorstep, you're certainly not going to run out of places to explore.

The highest town in England has a choice of places to eat, drink and shop, including a small supermarket and a regular fresh produce market most weekdays. Favourite local walks include Isaac's Tea Trail, a trail to Nenthead Mines, and a lovely walk from Garrigill to Alston. Slightly further but still less than 20 minutes by car are High Cup Nick and Peeping Hill, the lookout at Hartside Pass, Cow Green Reservoir, and High Force, Low Force and the Ashgill Force Waterfall. Other attractions include the Hub Heritage and Transport Museum, Epiacum Roman Fort, Yad Moss Ski Centre, and the South Tynedale Railway. You can stock up on self-catering provisions in Alston, 10 minutes away, where there is a regular market selling fresh produce most days, a small supermarket, tea rooms, and pubs.

Penrith, Keswick, and Carlisle are all under an hour from Camellia Cottage, while Kendal and Windermere are only 15 and 25 minutes further, respectively. The Eden Valley and County Durham are alternative places for a day out, especially with Barnard Castle and Bowes Museum. Hadrian's Wall, Hexham, and the Kielder Observatory tick even more boxes.

Camillia Cottage offers a genuinely warm welcome in all seasons. The location, the views and the high standard of accommodation combine to make it a memorable holiday home to which you'll yearn to return.
