Description

An open plan cottage with balcony overlooking gardens on a former farmstead. Peaceful rural retreat close to both coast and country.

Wonderful walks from the doorSurrounded by dramatic scenery

Featuring beams taken from shipwrecks on the Cumbrian Coast, this small group of holiday cottages at Birkerthwaite, a former 17th century Lakeland farmstead, lie at the end of an unmade track and are surrounded by tranquil moorland scenery and farmland. This is fantastic walking countryside and the elevated position gives views of Scafell and the Eskdale Valley, creating a unique atmosphere of tranquillity. Birkerthwaite Farmhouse (W43001) is a unique holiday property dating back to 1627 and has many original features, beamed ceilings, flagged floors and unusual oak wall cupboards built in the 1700’s. Comfortably furnished and with the benefit of an open fire and an Aga, the farmhouse is cosy and welcoming. Birkerthwaite Stable (W41477) is a single-storey converted stable with rustic charm heated by a log-burning stove. Birkerthwaite Barn (W41478) has a spacious kitchen/dining room, a galleried landing and a four poster bed. Birkerthwaite Cottage (W41479) has an upstairs open plan living area with wooden floors which opens onto a balcony overlooking gardens. Nearby attractions include Muncaster Castle and Hardknott Roman Fort, whilst the Langdale Pikes and Ambleside on the northern shores of Lake Windermere can be reached via a stunning drive over the Hard Knott and Wrynose Passes. A short drive away is Wast Water; to the west are sandy beaches. Alternatively take the steam train from Ravenglass. Shop 3 miles, pub 2.5 miles.

    Although the cottage was really lovely, clean and provided everything you needed (except a hairdryer) for your stay, it was very remote, more so than we had anticipated from the description given. If you are going for a walking holiday then it is ideal. A plus was that my morning walks with our dog were the best we have ever had regarding the stunning views and peace!! We were not, just went for a rest and to potter about so every trip we did took 40 minutes plus to get anywhere. So for us not an ideal location, but for others it would be absolutely perfect.

    Excellent stay and a really lovely property. This is incredibly remote so if you are looking for a complete shut out from every day life then this is a perfect choice. We found the lack of internet connection and general absence of phone signal to be annoying as we were unable to make plans from the house or search for local amenities/attractions or even just make a phone call without having to drive out
