Carlisle – The Great Border City

The Fleece at Ruleholme is situated just 6 miles from the City of the Lakes, meaning our guests are able to enjoy cozy, rural comfort on the doorstep of the multi-cultural, historic Carlisle.


A once fortified, defensive settlement the famous walls of Carlisle still stand – defiant and strong, encompassing the centuries-old Carlisle Catherdal, Guildhall, Tithe Barn, Market Cross, and the impressive 12th century Carlisle Castle. Nowadays, all can be explored and enjoyed on foot while you enjoy a snack from the culinary-inspired indoor marketplace and catch-up with locals at one of the many independent coffee shops on the main high street.
