Carlisle Has Everything on Tap for a Great Self-Catering Holiday

Carlisle is the county town of Cumbria and offers diverse amenities and attractions.  Whatever the age of your family members, there is something for everyone in this town. The only problem will be choosing which activity to try out. Carlisle has a laser tag centre, complete with dark passages, music and fog! If paintball is more appealing, several centres in the Carlisle area operate and you can choose from different terrain and games. Perhaps you’d like to ski or snowboard? This, too, is possible. Etterby Scaur is the location for the dry ski slope and Alston Moor has a tow lift, so why not let the professionals get you ready for the slopes.


Information on Cottage Holidays in Carlisle

Bars, nightclubs and theatres offer a diverse nightlife scene and film goers are catered for too. In addition to the multi-screen cinema, Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery shows art house films. This gallery exhibits fine art, arts and crafts and natural sciences, with a calendar of family events and activities for children.

If you prefer the great outdoors and walking, climbing or cycling on a cottage holiday then the Lake District is only a short drive away. Also, if you want to try your hand at sailing or rowing, nearby Talkin Tarn offers tuition for novices and people with more experience.

The kids will love Carlisle Castle; it really does look like something out of an Arthurian legend. This medieval castle has guided tours and interactive exhibitions and it contains the Cumbria Military Museum. For another impressive medieval building, go to Carlisle Cathedral, with its fabulous stained glass windows and ceiling. Regular lunchtime recitals take place here and the cathedral is involved in the Carlisle Festival.

The sole example of a medieval house in Carlisle houses the Guildhall Museum. This timber, bricks and clay building dates back to 1407 and it was used by the various trade guilds of the town, such as tanners and weavers. Artefacts tell the story of these guilds and there is a collection of silver from the early 1700s. For more interesting town history, see The Citadel, which consists of the East Tower and the West Tower. This structure has had an important part to play in the town and the public can sometimes tour the West Tower and see the old courts and prison.

So, there is a lot to do in Carlisle, an attraction in its own right, but it also makes a good base for exploring more rural pleasures. Find a country cottage, apartment or a farmhouse for a great self-catering holiday in Carlisle.
