About Hoglet Cottage

Hoglet Cottage is a pretty holiday cottage in the tranquil hamlet of Flanders near the village of Dalston. The traditional Cumbrian barn has been transformed into two completely private and self-contained holiday cottages, each with one spacious bedroom, a beautifully furnished living area, and a landscaped garden with a covered hot tub and a seating area. It's an idyllic spot where you can put aside your cares and enjoy the luxury of spending time together without distraction. The area is fantastic for walking, cycling, sightseeing and eating amazing Cumbrian food. Bookings are available all year round.

Dalston is a relaxed village popular with families for its school and good links to the M6 for commuting. Amenities within a mile and a half of Hoglet Cottage include a small supermarket and a welcoming pub, The Blue Bell, which serves modern pub food using Cumbrian ingredients. Dalston is only four miles from Cumbria's county town, Carlisle, where there is a wide array of places to eat, drink and shop. Carlisle Castle is 900 years old and the site of a former Roman fort. It's a fascinating place to visit, having seen centuries of use due to its proximity to the Scottish border. The red stone fortress has withstood more sieges than anywhere else in Britain and was in almost constant use until the 1960s - a visit there is an eye-opener into a thousand years of British history. Carlisle also has a gorgeous cathedral and an excellent museum and art gallery. Hadrian's Wall and the Birdoswald Roman Fort is nearby.

You can walk for miles around here, enjoying a stunning and diverse landscape that ranges from the fells and mountains of the Lake District National Park, the more gentle trails around the Solway Coast, and the beautiful footpaths along Hadrian's Wall and the Scottish Borders. Even if you're not a regular hiker, you'll enjoy the scenic riverside walk that starts from Dalston's village square and goes along a tarmac surface next to the River Caldew. Follow in the footsteps of the famous fell walker, Alfred Wainwright, or pick up the Cumbrian Way as it passes through Dalston. Mountain bikers can explore via purpose-built trails at Grizedale Forest or the numerous trails through the Eden Valley and Lake District; whilst road cyclists also have a great choice of routes leading to spectacular views. A short drive takes you to Caldbeck, Keswick and Ullswater, for sailing, swimming and kayaking. Golf and horse riding are also available locally.

Hoglet Cottage is a beautiful place where you can be as active as you choose, exploring far and wide or going no further than the garden. Its high standard of accommodation ensures you'll feel welcome and comfortable no matter what time of the year you stay.

Hoglet Cottage is over two levels, with the living area downstairs and the ensuite bedroom on the upper floor.


  • Relax in the open-plan living room, dining area and kitchen, which has glass doors that open onto the patio and private garden. Throw the doors open to enjoy the birdsong on warm summer mornings, and light the log burner and snuggle on the sofa in cold weather, watching a film on the large Smart TV.
  • Fitted kitchen equipped with utensils, pots and pans, plates, glasses and all the other bits you need to cook and serve meals.


  • Sumptuous bedroom suite with an indulgent super-kingsize (6ft-wide) bed with hotel-quality bed linen and a stylish upholstered headboard. There's another wall-mounted Smart TV in the bedroom so you can lie in bed and binge on your favourite show.
  • Gorgeous ensuite with a shower big enough for two, a WC and a handbasin.

Outside: The paved garden is full of sweetly blooming cottage flowers that make sitting outside a delight. The hot tub is private and sheltered, with soft bathrobes provided. There is off-street parking for one car.
