We thought we'd tell you about why Otter's Holt should be your next choice of home.  People move homes for a variety of reasons. Your decision to move may be due to your job, a desire to be closer to family and friends or simply loving a certain part of the country and wanting to relocate in order to enjoy it more.

Otter’s Holt is a wonderful development in the village of Culgaith, situated in the Eden Valley and surrounded by a warm community feel. Culgaith is the largest parish village of 4 nestled together at the foot of Cross Fell. Its neighbours are Blencarn, Skirwith and the hamlet of Kirkland. The village has a school, a garden centre – which also sells newspapers and magazines – and a local pub, known to dish up a delicious Sunday roast, only a 5-minute walk away.

Should gardening be your passion – or you simply want to learn more about how to make the most of your new outdoor space - head to Hazel Dene Garden Centre in Culgaith. Here you will also find Mrs Miller’s Tearoom, a popular restaurant, open 7 days a week, offering high quality food and drink. You may have seen it listed in the 2018 Waitrose Good Food Guide – it’s on your doorstep!

A short distance from the village is Acorn Bank, a National Trust property with a manor house dating back to the 13th century, walled gardens, part-restored watermill and riverside walk to enjoy. When you visit be sure to seek out the Dalston Oak, said to be the oldest tree on the estate – and see how many people can squeeze inside.

The Eden Valley location is simply stunning, and you will be spoilt for choice with great days out and ways to explore. The Lake District stretches to the west and the North Pennines rise to the east culminating in Cross Fell, the highest peak in the Pennine Hills – 8 miles away, however you decide to ascend.

Culgaith life embraces a huge array of activities on the doorstep. The River Eden will entice you with fishing and canoeing. The stunning Pennines will reward your walking, climbing and cycling efforts with breath-taking views.
