Raughton Head,


Hall Hills has 5 award-winning 4 and 5-star self-catering cottages set around a courtyard in a genuinely tranquil, rural location. They have received a coveted Gold Award from Visit Britain and have been named Self-Catering Holiday of the Year (2009) by Cumbria Tourism.

Just to the east of the Lake District National Park, they are handy for many attractions in Cumbria and beyond, including the historic city of Carlisle, the Scottish Borders and Hadrian's Wall. Hall Hills is hence a scenic rural retreat or a great base for exploring one of the UK's most impressive holiday destinations, and one with a tremendous wealth of things to see and do.

Secluded and sophisticated, the cottages are the result of a careful conversion of a cluster of 17thC stone barns. The resulting holiday accommodation has been individually designed to the highest standards with exposed beams and solid oak floors. The cottages are named Yan, Tan, Tethera, Methera and the Folly, each with its unique character and able to accommodate up to 20 people altogether. They feature open-plan living and dining areas, and private patios with views over the Roe River and across verdant, rolling Cumbrian countryside.

Free wireless broadband is included, as are satellite TV and integrated sound systems complete with iPod connections. Guests also receive a welcome hamper offering a taste of local produce.

    “Good location for touring, very comfortable”

    The property was spotlessly clean, but very little in the way of cleaning products etc to tidy up before we left.
    The location was excellent, especially as our daughter had just moved into the area.
    Most things had been thought of in terms of services and facilities. We took our recycling to the nearby village, because the containers were full at the property.
    The price was the most we have ever paid for accomodation, but we do usually visit scotland, which is less expensive.
    The only slight complaint we have is that towards the end of our weeks stay, we returned to the cottage and couldn't park, because a new guest had just arrived. The property owner did not recognise us and was quite rude to us asking "and you are?" as if we shouldn't be there.

    I can only apologise for the situation we all experienced with excessive recycling during your stay. Our local recycling depot closed without warning to replace their facilities so our recycling containers were full. I just wish you had let us know you felt you had to dispose of your own as we would have gladly relieved you of it until we could recycle it ourselves. However we should have informed you of the problem also.

    As regards "and you are?", I did certainly not mean to be rude. As I had spoken primarily to Mrs Colman on arrival I sadly did not recognise Mr Colman in the drivers seat and I can only apologise for this.
