From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Surrounded by stunning dramatic scenery, this delightful holiday cottage is in an ideal location for walkers and nature lovers alike.

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.

Spacious, L-shaped living/dining room with multi-fuel stove and rugs on wooden floor. Farmhouse-style kitchen with Aga and dining area. Cloakroom with toilet. First floor: Double bedroom with 5ft four-poster bed. Twin bedroom. Bunk bedroom with Velux window. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Beamed throughout.

    What makes this holiday is the location. the situation and views are absolutely stunning. The cottage itself is ok. Being on a farm it will inevitably have some dirt and dust but it did not feel very clean. The shared garden is a pain, especially if one family does not like dogs. the fenceing is not sheep proof - sheep were in the back garden - so i am not sure this is really dog friendly. the bathroom leaked into the utility room below. Ideally there would be a seperate bathroom but that is not really practical in the building. But what a location !!

    Brilliant for walking etc but be careful as it takes a while to drive anywhere and if your car is low to ground then will scrap the floor as track is very rough! Lovely cottage comfy beds and great aga for cooking. Really enjoy the break.
