About Church House Barn

Church House Barn is in the Cumbrian village of Newton Arlosh, within walking distance of the Joiner's Arms pub and the medieval church. The property dates from the 1800s and has recently been renovated to provide a high standard of accommodation with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a layout that suits couples, friends or families. The beautiful location is perfect for a holiday at any time of the year. It's part of the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within easy reach of the northern Lake District and Dumfries and Galloway. Within only a small radius, guests have access to beaches, marshland, mountains and lakes, as well as lively towns and pretty villages. What more could you want?

Newton Arlosh is best known for St John's Church. Constructed in 1303 and renovated in 1843, the church has fortified stone walls, arrow-slit windows, and a very narrow door and was a place of refuge for local farmers (and their animals) when Scottish raiders attacked the area. There's also a Tudor glass window that survived the Reformation. Most guests go to Carlisle for their grocery shopping. It's around half an hour's drive from the barn, with an excellent choice of shops and supermarkets. Some guests opt to order their shopping online - Sainsbury's, Asda, Tesco and Morrison's all deliver.

Cumbrian's embrace Alfred Wainwright's belief that "there's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing". Wainwright knew this region better than anyone, and his books are considered the definitive guides to the Lakeland fells. The landscape is beautiful in every season, whether you're climbing a mountain, walking along a coastal footpath, cycling through country lanes, fishing, playing golf, or partaking in one of the dozens of other outdoor activities readily accessible to visitors.

Days out can include sightseeing in Carlisle, where there is a castle, cathedral, and a Victorian covered market. Hadrian's Wall and Birdoswald Roman Fort are part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site around 30 miles from Church House Barn. The Solway Coast is on the doorstep and perfect for a relaxing walk, cycle or picnic. Try your luck at a day at the races, go boating on the lake at Talkin Tarn Country Park, head north to Gretna Green or south to Skiddaw and Bassenthwaite.

There is no limit to the amount of fun you can enjoy during a holiday at Church House Barn, no matter what time of the year you stay.
