Your Cumberland Country Retreat

With perfectly proportioned living and dining rooms, wood burning stove, a fully equipped kitchen and four comfortable bedrooms, each with its own unique decorative theme, you will feel instantly relaxed when you walk through the front door of Salvin House.

Outside, we have a Cumbrian cottage garden, secure for dogs, set across three levels with multiple seating areas, wood-fired pizza oven, a charcoal grill, covered seating area and bee-friendly planting.  

Our professional housekeeping team will prepare everything in readiness for your arrival, including a locally sourced welcome pack (with our compliments), logs for the stove, fluffy towels and crisp cotton linen on all the beds. So you can focus on relaxing and enjoying your rural surroundings. 

We welcome one or two small or medium-sized dogs.
