Surrounded by dramatic scenerySurrounded 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.

All on ground floor: Living room with patio door, beams and slate floor/dining room/step to kitchen. Step to 1 double bedroom. Bathroom with shower attachment and toilet.

    I took my partner for his 30th birthday and what an amazing location, very rural, views from the cottage are amazing. The cottage is very snug and has everything you need. We had a prefect week away and would highly recommend this cottage.

    Loved our stay. Just the right size for the 2 of us, plus Skye the dog! Walking from the door and tucked away in a little hamlet of it's own - just what we wanted.

    Absolutely stunning location lovely cottage well equipped brilliant for people wanting too go for very scenic walks and if that is too energetic a leisurely drive in beautiful scenery is ideal, Lake Windermere and Coniston very short drive away ,would advise people too make sure they take enough supplies as supermarkets are some distance but there is a very well stocked shop in Gosforth which is about a 15 minute drive with lovely staff ,and i believe Tesco does home deliver .The cottage is located down a bumpy track but is well worth it ideal if you want peace and quiet we have already booked it again for next year highly recommend
