Blackberry Cottage description

Blackberry Cottage is located within a private courtyard of similar style terraced properties near the centre of the village of Abbeytown. It is a part of a former stables that has been cleverly converted into contemporary cottages. Furnished to a very good standard, this holiday cottage provides a cosy base for your explorations. A sun trap of a garden and a multi-fuel burner mean that you can make the most of the property no matter what the weather. It benefits from being 100 yards from the local shop and village pub whilst only 5 miles from Silloth and the Solway Coast, 6 miles to the market town of Wigton, and approximately 18 miles to the border city of Carlisle. Good transport links also make it a good base from which to explore the Lake District National Park, Hadrian’s Wall and the Scottish Borders. Abbeytown is ideally situated for those with an interest in birds and nature as it is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is located near several nature reserves, a Marine Conservation Zone and a World Heritage Site. The Solway Coast contains many locally, nationally and internationally important features including the second largest area of lowland raised mire or ‘bog’ in England. The RSPB opened the Solway Wetlands Centre in Autumn 2013 to make the most of this fragile but important habitat. From archaeological digs to hedge laying training, there is always something to get involved with in the area. Abbeytown itself is home to the 12th-century Holme Cultram Abbey, built by Cistercian monks from Melrose Abbey. Restoration work that has been undertaken means that this beautiful abbey is open to the public with an exhibition and tea room. For the keen golfer, Silloth Links golf course is possibly one of the best golf courses in Britain that is mostly clad in mature dune flora and ideal for presenting the great challenge of links golf.
