A bit of history
Built in 1833 in a Tudor style for the then prominent Peter Dixon, head of Peter Dixon & Sons, a famous shipping and cotton milling company, Holme Eden Hall was constructed as his family seat and was designed by the renowned Newcastle upon Tyne architect John Dobson.
Following Peter Dixon’s death, the estate was put up for auction, and being concerned for its future it was purchased by Mr Liddell of Warwick Hall, the adjoining estate, who subsequently bequeathed the property to an order of Benedictine nuns, who remained at Holme Eden Abbey as it was renamed, until 1983 when the order was disbanded.
It briefly returned to private ownership, before being sold to become a nursing home in 1985. In 2003 Holme Eden Hall was re-developed by local builders Cumbrian Homes Limited.
The Village of Warwick Bridge is located in the Eden Valley, close to the Lake District National Park. The area is perfect either as a permanent base or as a holiday/weekend retreat being close to some of the most famous areas in the north of England.
The ancient city of Carlisle and the World Heritage site of Hadrian’s Wall are both close by as is the Solway Firth, Scottish Borders and the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
The regional cities of Newcastle upon Tyne, Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh are easily accessible.
Whilst the village may enjoy rural surroundings and certainly Holme Eden Hall has an air of timelessness about it, modern day facilities and services are close by and the area is well served by rail transport, with Carlisle station being on the West Coast line. The M6 - at Junction 43 - is close by.
Local sporting facilities include Carlisle, Brampton and Eden Golf courses and Carlisle Racecourse, along with numerous high class fishing rivers. The proximity to the National Parks and upland area provide the base for many outdoor pursuits and interests.
From Penrith Junction 40 travel north on the M6 to Junction 43. Take the 3rd exit onto the A69 and travel along this road until you get to Warwick Bridge (beware of speed restrictions).
