Join friends and family in this cosy cottage for eight guests on the fringe of the Lake District. Hike high into the fells around Ullswater, visit the bustling market town of Keswick or journey east to the rugged beauty of the North Pennines.

Located just outside the Lake District National Park, this cottage makes an ideal base for exploring the North Lakes. You’ll be just 6 miles from Ullswater, where you’ll find stunning mountain scenery and a plethora of walks for all abilities. The market town of Penrith is 5 miles away and has a great selection of independent eateries. Alternatively, head over the road to the family-friendly pub. Sleeping eight guests across four bedrooms, the spacious cottage suits large families and groups of friends. It boasts a large farmhouse-style kitchen, as well as a separate dining room with seating for everyone. After dinner, unwind in the cosy lounge with its warming wood burner.

The stylish cottage has been thoughtfully decorated, with contemporary furniture and accessories complementing the original features. The cottage is deceptively spacious, with large rooms and a variety of seating areas, allowing everyone to spread out during the holiday. In the morning, gather around the table for four in the light and bright kitchen to plan your itinerary over breakfast and in the evenings, perch here with a glass of wine whilst dinner is being prepared. Come together for dinner parties in the beautiful dining room, where an elegant beam runs overhead and there’s a large dining table to seat all eight guests. After dinner, retire to the cosy lounge, which is also full of character, thanks to exposed beams and an ornamental fireplace. Sink into one of the plump sofas to watch TV in the glow of the wood burner or curl up in the window seat with a good book. On the ground floor, you’ll also find a handy shower room. The four tastefully decorated bedrooms are located on the first floor, along with the family bathroom with a gorgeous free-standing slipper bath. To the rear of the cottage is a charming garden with a raised patio for al fresco dining. Outside the property there is parking for two small cars (take care when entering the driveway, as the entrance is quite tight).

Really lovely property, both modern and quaint at the same time! Very clean comfortable - probably the most comfortable beds we've experienced in a holiday let! The only downside is the parking which does need to be addressed by the owners.

We have just returned from a wonderful stay here. It is beautifully decorated and has lots of thoughtful extras (dvds/Blu-ray, walking books and maps, board games, toys&night lights). Equipment wise, it was also the best stocked cottage of any we've been too! The utility/boot room was ideal as it meant we come straight in the back door and muddy boRead moreots could be taken off and muddy clothes could go straight in the wash. There is a children's park a short walk away and the pub is across the road. Hide

Just back from a lovely weekend at this property. The house was a good size with everything we needed and very clean and cozy. Perfect for the 70th birthday celebrations we had for my father. We had 4 adult and 3 children in comfort with plenty of space for us all.

The cottage has been fully refurbished to a great luxurious standard. It also maintains the original cottage atmosphere. The rooms are all extra spacious which is great for a large crowd. The home is very well insulated perfect for winter months.

We had an excellent holiday, It was very clean and well equipped. We loved the log burner but the central heating was excellent too (stayed December). Well positioned for exploring the North Lakes. Thank you - we would definitely stay again!
