This property is full of character and original features. Plenty of space for the 5 of us and 4 en-suites a real bonus. The views are amazing both inside and from the garden. We loved watching the visiting birds and red squirrel and sheep in the lower field. Log burner used every evening. Set amongst a handful of cottages up a steep lane, you reallRead morey appreciate the rural location. Nearest shop 10 minutes in Glenridding or Keswick 20 minutes away. Bank House Farm is a truly amazing place to stay. Hide

As a whole the cottage was perfect. When we arrived the table was beautifully laid and the Christmas Trees added a special touch. We had a wonderful week and the cottage is beautiful and idyllic. We were really glad we found it. Thank you.
