Description

Attractive both inside and out with modern interiors, a games room and an enclosed garden. Location ideal for wildlife watching.

Dating back to 1706, Church House sits between an adjoining cottage and a post office in the Duddon Valley, an unspoilt jewel within the Lake District National Park. Abundant wildlife includes peregrines, ravens, red squirrels and deer. There are walks and access through the owners’ land to the picturesque River Duddon with salmon and sea trout (two fishing permits provided, Environment Agency licence from PO). The Duddon Valley is a jewel in the crown of Cumbria, situated between Coniston and Eskdale, remote, unspoilt and perhaps the most idyllic corner of the Lake District. The Duddon Valley will delight walkers, mountain bikers, climbers, nature lovers and those who enjoy the peace and beauty of the countryside. The tiny villages of Ulpha and Seathwaite are two focal points of the valley. Seathwaite, situated near the end of the ancient Walna Scar road, boasts the 16th century Newfield Inn, where good home-cooked food, real ales and a warm welcome await, all day, all year. Shop 40 yards, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    Cottage was excellent. Valley is the hidden jewel of the lakes.

    Fantastic cottage. If you want peace and tranquility then Church House is the place to relax and unwind. Nothing around except a post office next door so need to go prepared but small sacrifice for location and surroundings. Would definitely recommend.

    This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. The rooms are a good size and the layout was better than was clear from the description. All the bedrooms were upstairs on the same level along with the main bathroom. The main bedroom was the biggest. We liked the quirky uneven floors, high ceiling and a sink in the corner and the view from the window was amazing. Downstairs was the kitchen (which had an eating area), a living room, a dining room and a separate utility area with a downstairs toilet. A couple of sections were low enough to require care to avoid bumping your head. The cottage was very well stocked, very clean, and there were a lot of notes with instructions for using items, cleaning items and requests to put out the bin. There were also a few helpful extras like gravy powder, coffee and herbs. Unusually we didn't meet the owners at all which I suppose some people might like, but I found I missed the personal touch. To be fair, the owner did phone part way through the week to see if everything was going okay (and seemingly to also remind us to put out the bins and leave on time...). I agree with some of the other views which commented on the remoteness of the cottage. This was both an advantage and disadvantage. It was a good 45 minutes or so to some of the most well known Lake District tourist attractions. The biggest weakness of the property for us was probably the games room. This had been one of the selling points of the cottage but the kids found it disappointing and looked like it would be very cold in the winter. It also took us a while to find it. The things we liked the most were the wood-burning stove (actually there are two), how thoughtfully stocked the place was (kitchen bits and bobs, wood for the stove, Lake District books and DVDs) and the countryside right outside the window.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner- We are sorry you found the games room disappointing. This is the first negative comment we have had in 11 years. Turn right out of the front door and go through the red barn door in the corner. The games room is in the barn, upstairs. There’s a pool table, 5-a-side and full size table tennis table. No, it doesn’t have heating it is a barn but on the positive side, there is plenty of space.

    It was the best. It was well equipped, beautiful, comfortable, and the owners were very helpful. We would come recommend it to anyone.

    Our stay at Church House was perfection. Everything was perfect. There were no negatives. The house and garden were really lovely. Our family had a blissful few days. No body wanted to leave. We just wished we could stay longer. We will definitely try to book again although it looks very full for the rest of the season. Thank you to the owners for designing such a beautiful comfy home.

    Really interesting and lovely old house. Had everything we needed. The setting is brilliant and although we were three adults I would happily take my grandchildren. This is a great part of Cumbria

    Warm, comfortable and clean. Set in a quieter area of the lakes which is perfect for our needs. Have visited this cottage 8 years on the trot now so that says it all really.

    It was a lovely cottage even though it rained for our entire stay. I imagine it is beautiful when the sun shines. Hope to be back one day. The owner was very pleasant indeed and most helpful.
