About Cranmore House

Cranmore House is a charming self-catering cottage in Cumbria. The three-bedroom cottage sleeps six people, is child and pet-friendly, and has a flexible layout and luxuriously high standards that also make it a favourite with couples and friends. Staying in the highest village in Cumbria, Nenthead, affords you fantastic views, footpaths from the door, and direct access to the Coast to Coast (C2C) cycling route. Extended families and bigger groups can book Cranmore House with neighbouring Camellia Cottage to accommodate up to 14 people.

Nenthead is named for the Nent River that flows close to the cottage and the area is great for stargazing with wonderful dark skies and the North Pennines Observatory just 20 minutes away. It's set within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a UNESCO Global Geopark in recognition of the importance of its unique characteristics. Every day is different when you explore the area around Cranmore House. Walk across wild moorland, climb fells, and admire incredible waterfalls such as High Force, formed from whinstone, which was once molten lava deep underground but is now a spectacular display of geology and nature. Other local routes include Isaac's Tea Trail, the road to Carrshield, and trails around Nenthead Mine, and a favourite route from Garrigill to Alston.

Not only is Cranmore House in the heart of the North Pennines, but you're also within striking distance of the magnificent Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. That's thousands of square miles of every type of scenery you can imagine, from mountain tops to vast underground cave systems, lakes, moors, beaches and woodland. There's a fantastic lookout point at Hartside Pass and attractions within 20 minutes that include the South Tynedale Railway, Yad Moss Ski Centre, Hub Heritage and Transport Centre, Epiacum Roman Fort, and the gorgeous Cow Green Reservoir. Further afield, but still under an hour from Cranmore House, are Carlisle, Penrith and Keswick, with Kendal and Windermere being just a little further away. The Eden Valley, County Durham, Northumberland and Hadrian's Wall, are other choices for fun and memorable days out.

Cranmore House is available for holiday bookings all year round. There's no "best" time to visit. The scenery is magnificent in all seasons, and the house is always wonderfully welcoming.
