Nestled in the heart of the picturesque Cumbrian village of Castle Carrock, Willowdale House stands as a testament to timeless elegance and 21st-century luxury. This Georgian Country House, once the principal building of a Georgian Hall, has undergone a meticulous two-year restoration, transforming it into a contemporary dream home while preserving its rich heritage and charm.

With six ensuite bedrooms adorned with Hypnos mattresses and locally hand made amenities by Sedbergh Soap Company, Willowdale House offers a haven of comfort and style. Each room presents a unique atmosphere and breathtaking views of the Cumbrian landscape, whether it is the rugged fells of the North Pennines or the expansive vistas of Scotland.

The heart of this Georgian gem is its phenomenal kitchen and dining area. Featuring an Ilve range cooker and a sprawling four-meter marble prep table, it is a haven for culinary enthusiasts and a gathering place for friends and family. For those who prefer not to cook, the option of hiring an expert private chef is available.

The living spaces are equally impressive, catering to a variety of preferences. Whether it is a cosy evening by the crackling fire, a movie night in the TV lounge, cocktails in the Drawing Room with its towering fireplace, or a game of pool in the dark and imposing games room, Willowdale House offers spaces for every occasion.

The Orangery, an addition dating back to 1914, has been lovingly restored to house the Orangery Bar—a delightful space for relaxation, fun, and the enjoyment of a well-deserved Gin and Tonic after a day exploring the nearby fells.

Surrounded by three acres of gardens, Willowdale House invites guests to unwind outdoors. Whether playing games on the lush lawn, wandering through the meadow, or enjoying a barbecue prepared by the friendly staff from the local village pub, the estate offers a range of activities to suit every taste.

Willowdale House stands as a gateway to the North Pennines National Park, with easy access to lakes, forests, and English National Heritage sites. Yet, despite its proximity to nature, the house is just a short stroll from the award-winning local pub, offering hearty home-cooked meals and a cosy log fire—a perfect end to a day of exploration. Willowdale House is not just a holiday destination; it is a harmonious blend of history, luxury, and the beauty of the Cumbrian countryside.

  • The expansive three-acre garden may have unfenced sections. Guests with small children or pets should exercise caution to ensure their safety.
