Description

An elegant farmhouse with lovely features including open fires, beamed ceilings, a private hot tub and extensive countryside views.

Definitely off the beaten track, this wonderful holiday home stands in the most beautiful of settings. Lying to the western side of Corney Fell, which is dominated by Black Combe, you will enjoy the most extensive views. The former Foldgate Farmhouse, nestles around a courtyard with outhouse and stables, and has been extensively refurbished. The farmhouse has lovely features - wooden and flagged floors, beams and open fires and has been warmly decorated and furnished with style and great attention to comfort. This welcoming home from home will be a haven to relax and unwind, enjoy the views from the outdoor hot tub or decked areas; or just curl up on the sofa and read a book by the fire. Alternatively, there are plenty of attractions for you to visit in the nearby locality. The small town of Bootle is just 1½ miles with shops and pubs, the lakes Wastwater, Ennerdale and Coniston are all within a 20 minute drive. The coast is 2 miles, Muncaster and Ravenglass 5 miles.

    My second visit to Foldgate, absolutely lovely cottage. Not much around but surely that's what you want if you go to a cottage in the lakes?! I couldn't use the hot tub due to being pregnant but the rest of my family definitely approved! We had a 6 year old & a 1 year old with us & they both enjoyed it too! Would stay again for sure. A lovely relaxed family weekend.

    Our overall experience was great however, we did find that the cleanliness of the cottage was very poor, which is a shame as the cottage boats a high level of character.

    Response on behalf of the owner. We are so happy to know you enjoyed your stay. Please come back soon. We checked our log and could not find any cleaning reports being filed and that is a shame as we provide the three numbers so visitors can report anything to us upon arrival and our caretaker would then see what you see and take action as needed. As you say it is a location and property that boasts a high level of character and as it is 16th Century spiders enjoy it too so sometimes people see a cobweb and think it is bad cleaning when in fact it is just a newly spun web which we can easily remove.

    Wonderful place for a relaxing family break. We had a full house but we were definitely not over crowded. We were lucky enough to have some great weather in the afternoons, which was spent either in the hot tub or out and about. The Brown Cow provided a lovely evening with a play room for the little children, pool table for the older children and a very lovely meal for all. Great views, comfortable beds, comfortable furniture (just a little dated in the living room), great kitchen amenities with everything provided for including everything needed for a barbecue. Not a lot to do locally, but plenty of suggestions in in the handbook provided you are willing to drive. Plenty of suggested walks for those without small children. We would recommend the South Lakes Zoo, definitely worth the money. We did have a slight issue with the hot tub on the first day, but the caretaker did everything possible to rectify, as well as the owner Ian. We still enjoyed the hot tub immensely and would recommend Foldgate as a great place to stay.

    Response on behalf of the owner. We are so happy to know you enjoyed your stay overall. Please come back soon. Perhaps Muncaster Castle would be a good venue for you as we went there today with our five year old grand-daughter and even babies and toddlers were enjoying the lovely grounds, very well planned playground and the birds of prey show. We are just five minutes from the beach by car. Hope to see you back soon.

    Really comfortable stay for a party of 10 adults, a lovely rural setting - heed the warnings of the low cloud on the fell we had a couple of hairy drives, all fun though I guess. Some rooms nicer than others but upkeep must be hard on a large property as this. Kitchen is lovely and where we spent a lot of our time. Beautiul walking area and great restaurant Beswicks in Broughton - hot tub very nice could do with being undercover as it was raining during our stay. Great peaceful group getaway we would definitely return.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. We are so happy you enjoyed the property and the fell which does have changeable scenes across the seasons. Good to know you enjoyed your stay. Please come back soon and see the redecorated rooms (you are right that we can only do some each year due to our high visitor numbers). We are investigating the roof for the hot tub but some people prefer looking up at the stars no matter the weather so we are trying to get consensus.

    a perfect getaway weekend for the whole family. Beautiful country side, village, pub and beach quite nearby. Everything you need is provided from fairy liquid to towels for hot tub! Very well equipped kitchen, massive table for family meals, warm and cosy AGA . Owners contactable and extremely helpful with nothing too much trouble. Family friendly, with standard cot and/or a travel cot, pet friendly, we kept the lounge with the log burner as a dog free room and the 2 dogs just used the huge kitchen and the 'snug' type lounge with the huge open fire. It is also a great base for walks. Cant praise the owners enough for going the extra mile to ensure our stay was perfect!
