The property is truly lovely and very well equipped and presented. The added benefit of the appartment downstairs meant that we were able to accomodate (and have some privacy from!) our in-laws.
Carlisle, whilst small, is an amazingly convenient location. You can be easily travel to The Lakes, Scotland or the Dales.
The owners were delightful. Helpful, friendly and very accomodating (not-to-mention tolerant of the noise associated with a 20-month-old baby and two elderly, slightly deaf people). They were an absolute pleasure to deal with.
The only (very, very minor) criticism is that there seemed to be a combination of some unreliable wiring and blown bulbs in the property, so not all lights were working. A small thing, but it did prevent me from rating this property 5 stars.
