This Cottage is brought to you by:


In superb locations and beautiful settings. Cottages4you gives you a fantastic range of hand-picked properties with quality you can rely on.


Sat in an elevated position alongside the Cumbrian Way with lovely views over Ullswater. The perfect location for exploring the great outdoors.

These three delightful cottages stand high on the fellside adjacent to the Cumbrian Way, with superb views across the valley to the hills around Ullswater. Converted from traditional stone barns overlooking a cobbled courtyard, they are all attractive and comfortable and make a wonderful holiday base. Experience Lakeland at its best, with every kind of outdoor activity on hand. Bank House Barns are a haven away from the stresses and strains of everyday living and ideal for anyone looking to spend some time amidst the peace and quiet of beautiful scenery. Walk straight out on to the fells from your cottage door, or go pony trekking and see the sights from a different angle (book at nearby Rookin House). Enjoy boating and sailing on Ullswater or take in the magnificent scenery on a launch trip up the lake. A region which offers something for everyone, whichever season you choose to visit – in the winter months, why not join the Lake District ski club and ski on Raise. For enjoyable days out, there are plenty of places to visit, including Aira Force waterfall, Wetheriggs Pottery Museum and Penrith Castle. Also in the area surrounding Penrith is the wonderful Rheged Discovery Centre, Lowther Leisure and Wildlife Park, Dalemain Historic House and Gardens and beautiful Hutton in the Forest. The lakes and fells to the south are easily reached or go north to the charming villages and historic sites in the Borders, a trip to fascinating Hadrian’s Wall is a must. Pub and restaurant 2½ miles.

    Needs a good clean, I think I left it cleaner than I arrived. We ate in each night given we had a youngster and a dog. I had to clean everything before using it and there was very limited equipment in the kitchen along with half a squeeze of washing up liquid. It is a shame as the property could be excellent given the location and layout. With an updated paint job, furniture and equipment, kitchen and lamps that work this could be fantastic. Owner is quirky, if not a little rude but in an unconventional way I guess he just wanted someone to talk to. But if he relaxed the idea that we are not all there to trash his property and treated us as responsible adults rather than school children it would be better. But in a funny way I liked him.

    Excellent. The weather was very kind until the day of departure when it snowed a little. Roy was very kind and helpful. Our well behaved dog was made welcome despite barking at Roy.

    Very cold even with the heating on and very basic kitchen. Parking is dreadful and the road to the cottages very badly sign posted. No mobile reseption on any network.
