Visitors to Cumbria and the Lake District choose accommodation based on certain criteria, usually as a base from which to explore the endless natural wonders for which the area is so renowned or to stay put and do as little as possible in the name of rest and relaxation. Either way the Limes Country Guest House is the ideal choice.
A spacious 19th century Victorian farmhouse, this is a place which manages to combine period features within a rural setting with a warm and welcoming family atmosphere and yet is also well placed, close to the M6 J40 and A66 perfectly primed to access some of the most popular drive, walking and cycle routes in the country.
Two premium rooms, and an adjoined double and a twin room offer versatile spaces for couples, groups and families and with all amenities on site including en suite, TV, free Wi-Fi and tea and coffee making facilities, a comfortable and enjoyable stay inbetween excursions is assured.
A full English breakfast is included alongside home made preserves and guests are welcome to use the dining room in the evenings, where a fridge and microwave can be found, to enjoy their own meals. Guests can additionally make use of the private parking on site and large garden.
Situated on the edge of the Lake District, the Limes is not only conveniently placed for trips to such notable attractions as the Ullswater cruise steamers, just 4 miles away, but also to other major stops on any tour itinerary including Hadrian's Wall, the Pennines, the Yorkshire Dales and the Scottish Borders.
The Coast to Coast cycle route passes the front door and within a short walk are the Wood Workshop, the Cumbria School of Saddlery, and the Rheged Centre, which has shops, cafés, play areas, a pottery workshop, gallery and giant 3D cinema.
