Keepers Cottage

Keepers Cottage is Located near Longtown, just north of Carlisle and J44 of the M6.  Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of City Life, but close enough to ammenities if you require some milk for a hot chocolate on a night time!

The cottage has been carefully renovated to a high standard, but still maintains much character and many of its original features and can sleep up to 6 people.

Run by Richard and Pat Armstrong, who are always available to give any help or advice to guests, they live only a few minutes drive away from Keepers Cottage.

Richard and Pat have always lived locally and they run a beef and sheep farm close to Keepers Cottage. Spring is the busiest season when they tend to the newly born lambs and calves as well as preparing the fields to sow the crops which they feed to the stock throughout the winter.
Their two sons, James and Robin help out on the farm. Guests are always welcome to visit the farm during their stay at the cottage.
