The tranquil village of Waberthwaite, spectacularly situated between the mountains and the sea, is the setting for this holiday property.

The tranquil village of Waberthwaite, spectacularly situated between the mountains and the sea, is the setting for this wonderfully sympathetic barn conversion which has created two stylish holiday cottages featuring vaulted ceilings, original beams and stonework. Surrounded by pretty gardens with a small stream running through, it makes a perfect base for exploring the western Lake District fells, country and coastal walks, and cycle paths. Just 4 miles from Muncaster Castle, gardens and owl sanctuary, and the Ravenglass to Eskdale Miniature Steam Railway, whilst Wastwater (voted Britain’s favourite view 2007) is a few miles further. The 18th century Georgian port of Whitehaven to the north has a conservation harbour and marina, the Beacon Heritage Centre plus shops and restaurants, or if relaxation is a preferred option, simply unwind on the sunny patio with a good book. Shop 20 yards, pub 100 yards.

Living/dining room/kitchen with wooden floor, granite stonework and patio doors. Utility. Double bedroom with 5ft bed, wooden floor and compact en-suite shower room with shower cubicle and toilet. First floor: Two double bedrooms. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. All rooms beamed with vaulted ceiling.

    Lovely cottage which is part original with beautiful beams and features and part rebuilt in keeping with the original cottage. The cottage is well equipped with everything you would need including modern appliances. Location is peaceful and rural and has a local shop and pub nearby. If your looking for a tranquil escape this is perfect, however, you will need to travel 20-30 mins to find a good-sized village. No takeaways will deliver here!! The lounge and open plan kitchen are a good size as is the master bedroom. The 2 upstairs bedrooms are extremely compact with limited room to walk. Whilst the ensuite shower is described as 'compact' the reality is that it is not practical for an adult. My wife is 5ft 2" and she had problems using it. No sign of the mildew noted on a previous review. All in all we had a great break in a lovely cottage.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you very much for your kind comments and we are so pleased you had a great holiday. We agree the cottage location is peaceful, rural and offers a perfect escape but with the benefit of a local village pub and shop within easy walking distance.

    Beautiful cottage in lovely setting. Living area was huge! Rooms all a good size and beds very comfy. Downstairs shower a real disappointment though - only a child could realistically use this. Not sure why it was so small when the master bedroom was so large? Although shop and pub close by, shop was shut over bank holiday weekend (I guess to be expected) and pub is a walk along a really fast road which made us uneasy. Ate in instead, which was fine with all the comforts of home. Lots to do nearby - really enjoyed the Hardknott Pass drive and Ravenglass steam railway! Did the tour of the lakes with some lovely weather to show it all off at its best.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you so much for your welcome feedback. We agree - the cottage was made as spacious as possible and converted to the highest standard. Incorporation of a small shower in the downstairs on-suite toilet meets building regulations and is intended as an ancillary shower to the main bathroom shower. We agree this area of the Lake-district with mountains and coast is an unspoilt gem.
