Holiday Rental House
Opened in May 2014, The Old Hare & Hounds is a three bedroom holiday cottage in the quiet hamlet of Low Gelt near Brampton in Cumbria. Once part of the Hare and Hounds Inn, the cottage has been stylishly converted into a comfortable and modern holiday let for families or groups to enjoy. It features a large lounge / dining room with wood burning stove, a well supplied kitchen, free internet access and three en-suite bedrooms, one of which has been converted for easy access. Directly opposite the cottage is Low Gelt Bridge, the main entrance to Gelt Woods, one of the hidden gems of Cumbria. Gelt Woods is a delightful deciduous woodland which winds its way along the valley of the 'mad' river Gelt.

Directly opposite the cottage is Low Gelt Bridge, the main entrance to Gelt Woods, one of the hidden gems of Cumbria. Gelt Woods is a delightful deciduous woodland which winds its way along the valley of the 'mad' river Gelt. The walks through the woodlands loop through a landscape of crags and riverside paths, abundant with bird life and the occasional deer. If you are lucky you may also see a red squirrel as we are one of the few places in England where they still survive. For cyclists, route 72 - Hadrian's Cycleway, goes right past the door, leading on to the wild and fascinating Hadrian's Wall. Low Gelt gives easy access to the A69, the main east / west road from Carlisle to Newcastle, making the Old Hare & Hounds an ideal base to explore the Roman forts of Hadrian's Wall and the border country between England and Scotland. The North Pennines area of outstanding natural beauty is nearby and Keswick in the Lake District, Kielder Forest, Newcastle and South West Scotland are all no more than an hour's drive away. The Old Hare and Hounds has been completely renovated during 2013 / 2014 with all new furniture and fittings to give you that little bit of luxury you deserve on your holiday. With all three bedrooms being en-suite it is a perfect location for couples, families or groups of friends. For off-season breaks the combination of a wood burning stove with fuel provided, underfloor heating / radiators, double glazing and modern levels of insulation provide a cosy atmosphere throughout the cottage. The heating runs using an air source heat pump with all electricity being included in the booking price.More
