Completed in 2007, from the outside The Heronry looks like a barn in keeping with the surrounding buildings. The interior is spacious and contemporary with porcelain tiled floors throughout and stunning floor-to-ceiling windows along the rear of the building, creating a light and bright huge space. Running alongside the rear of the property and viewed from the massive windows, is Carwinley Beck which is regularly visited by its heron.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This house certainly has the wow factor and is in a lovely position. The owners are friendly and add some nice touches to make you feel welcome. Ideal for honeymooners or a romantic break. The owners have lovely dogs who are well trained not to enter the holiday home, but are happy to play if you are. We found this an excellent location to visit Hadrian’s Wall, Carlisle, the Lake District and the southern parts of Scotland (we even saw 2 weddings taking place at Gretna Green, only 10 minutes drive away). Also easy access to Newcastle and the amazing Northumberland countryside and coast. July 2012.
  2. Would recommend this place to anyone. Absolutely stunning grounds, beautiful surroundings and a friendly welcome awaits anyone who books here. All of this mixed in with the most stunning of views waking up every morning with floor to ceiling windows in both the living room and the bedroom...not to mention the bathroom. I’d been so looking forward to this week away and it didn’t disappoint in any way. The family who own the property and live on the grounds could not have been more accommodating to us and made sure we felt as if we could treat the 3 and a half acres it all sits on as our own. I can’t praise them enough. The holiday home itself is beyond words to be quite honest. It has everything you will need for a comfortable stay with some great little touches. It’s decorated impeccably and has a luxurious feel whatever room you find yourself in. The cottage is set in the most stunning of surroundings, it most certainly will not be my last visit and have already told anyone willing to listen that they have to stay here to believe just how fantastic it is. Walking routes around the area are sublime and the local pub (well 3 miles down the road) serves fantastic, reasonable food in great portions. Carlisle is within easy reach as are the Northern lakes (Keswick was absolutely stunning). I would recommend a trip down to Haughton Garden centre if you can. The farm shop is fantastic and their meat just cannot be beaten, or a trip to Gretna if your feeling like making your trip an impromptu honeymoon! Nothing but praise for everything about this holiday. The only down side was coming home. May 2012.
  3. An amazing property and lovely hosts. Will def go back. Jan 2012.
  4. If i tell you that i must go back , it should tell you what i think of the place. Dec 2011.
  5. This property was beautiful and everything you would need for complete relaxation. The standards were very high and such wonderful personal touches! Would definitely recommend. Sept 2011.
  6. Superb location, and the stunning views from the large windows are just fantastic. Aug 2011.
  7. The Heronry is a beautiful retreat, the accommodation is stunning and the location is great if you like walking and doing nothing. The only slight inconvenience for us was the lack of internet access. Would definitely recommend it to my friends though. July 2011.
  8. One entire side of the property is glass looking down into a small river, floodlit at night and the tree-line bank on the other side, also belonging to the owners. I never drew any blinds, every wall is a magnet to keep looking for herons, dippers and otters. Shocking weather, so I was unlucky. Inside, it is the ultimate in designer luxury and the owners are extremely welcoming, without being intrusive. June 2011.
  9. The Heronry was everything we expected and more! The owners are really lovely and looked after our every needs, welcomed us with champagne and home-made cup cakes, took us to various restaurants and brought us home so we could have a drink and were always ’on hand’ if we needed anything. The cottage itself was set in the most beautiful location with the most incredible full length windows from bedroom, bathroom and lounge looking onto a brook and trees with wonderful wildlife to spot! Hope yo go back again someday - drive home was long as we were so chilled out! April 2011.
  10. The Heronry is pure luxury. A great place to stay if you want to get away from it all. Relaxing and peaceful location with fantastic views and very welcoming hosts. March 2011.
  11. Absolutely fabulous! Even better than the pictures/description. Didn’t want to leave. Very friendly and helpful owners. Can’t wait to return! Feb 2011.
  12. Very clean, tidy and complete luxury set in a picturesque location with great views to the rear of the property. Located in a quite location but not very far from shops etc. Very relaxing. Owners also very friendly. Jan 2011.
  13. The Heronry was absolutely wonderful. The who accommodation was first class, very tastefully converted, and most comfortable. The owners were very kind to us on our honeymoon. We would willingly recommend this to anyone. Jan 2011.
