Description

This holiday cottage, with beams salvaged from shipwrecks on the Cumbrian coast, lies in an idyllic rural location.

Surrounded by stunning dramatic scenery, these delightful 17th-century holiday cottages (ref LVL and LZL) lie in a walker’s and nature lover’s paradise. Take the path to Stanley Force Waterfall, discover the ‘jewels’ of the River Esk and the ancient village of Boot, or walk to Devoke Water, the largest tarn in the Lake District. Majestic Wastwater, the coast and unspoilt beaches are a short drive away. The adjoining cottages, with beams salvaged from shipwrecks on the Cumbrian coast and wood-burning stoves, lie in an idyllic rural location, forming part of a small former farmstead accessed from the fell road by a gated unmade track. Shop and pub 3 miles.

Step to entrance. Beamed open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove, French doors to gardens and step up to open-plan kitchen area. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Narrow stairs to first floor: Galleried room leading to double bedroom with four-poster bed.

    Me and my partner chose this cottage as our first ever holiday destination together. We loved it, it was great for getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. 5 days without WIFI and mobile signal was actually a relief! (Advice: If you're desperate for signal, you can pick up O2 by sitting on the bench outside!) The cottage had everything you would need, the wood burner was perfect to come back to after a long day out. The bed was comfortable and the overall cleanliness was spot-on. Also, the ring binder with advice and details of local amenities was a great touch, definitely needed when you're in such a remote location. The local people are also very helpful and forthcoming. The King George Pub was amazing, it is approximately 10 minutes down the road. We ate there twice and enjoyed it. The walk down to Stanley Force Waterfall was practically on your doorstep. Me and my partner are definitely looking to book this property again next year. We were sad to leave :(

    Our holiday in Ganny Cottage was perfect due to several things; the weather was fab, the location was perfect and the fact that we had the place to ourselves with no one in the adjacent cottage. Had the weather been not so kind and had there been another family next door it could have been very different. You are so close to the neighbours also sharing the garden and outside areas that you would need to be very compatible. We had visions of up to 6 (probably smoking) adults and/or children complete with dogs! We were a middle aged couple looking for a remote location and we certainly got it. The only downside with the property (as has been pointed out in previous reviews) is that the bed wants scrapping! It makes so much noise! and if you go in mid summer watch out for the biting insects, esp the horseflies! Otherwise its a great location for exploring the Esk valley and adjacent Duddon valley. but I hope you get great neighbours!

    Nice cosy cottage superb location all the amenities you need within the cottage or shops n pubs a drive away which you don't mind because of those views. May need a little bit of an update sofa etc but we loved our break

    Great cottage if you really want to get away from it all, very remote, if your a fell walker then this would be a great base, if your more of a leisure seeker and want to stroll around the lakes then you'd be better off with something closer to one of the main towns. The cottage itself is a great little place, well stocked kitchen and very clean

    The cottage was in a beautiful location with spectacular views and walks on the door step - unfortunately the cottage had no pay phone and there were no phones nearby therefore as there was no mobile signal it meant being totally cut off. Access to the cottage is via a gated track (3) which took some effort - there was no TV signal and poor radio signal - upon contact the owner was very good at attempting to fix this however it didn't work - the cottage is well equipped however the bed is uncomfortable and the pillows need replacing.
