Otters Holt

Otter's Holt is situated on the Western edge of the village of Culgaith, some six miles East of Penrith and the M6 and just one mile North of Temple Sowerby and the A66.

A community of around 400 people enjoy the tranquil location between Cross Fell and the rugged Pennines to the East and the River Eden which it overlooks to the West.

The village itself dates back to around the 13th Century with nearby Millrigg House, a 15th Century stone Pele Tower built as protection against Scottish raiders, a reminder of the area’s turbulent past.

With good access to the important local amenities such as Schools, Shops, Doctors either within the village or very close by, this rural living style does not mean you are isolated in anyway from the every day conveniences you associate with larger towns and cities.

Culgaith, a Thriving Eden Valley Village

The first mention of the village’s Inn, the Black Swan, dates back to the 17th Century whilst All Saints Church was built later in 1758. The Midland Railway (Settle-Carlisle) was built through Culgaith between 1870-73 and this included a tunnel of 661 yards. The station was later opened 1880.

In addition to the Church, the village boasts a primary school, praised in a 2005 Ofsted inspection, a recreation ground, the Hazel Dene Garden Centre and the famous Black Swan Inn. It is conveniently located within easy reach of some of the most beautiful countryside in the North West of England. The Lake District, Pennines and Yorkshire Dales offer excellent opportunities for walking, hiking and mountain biking, whilst the adjacent River Eden provides one of the best trout and salmon rivers in England.
