Description

Guests will enjoy the rare breeds of sheep and ponies on-site and visitors can walk in the fields surrounding the farm.

In a magnificent rural setting, with fabulous views of the Skiddaw mountain range, magnificent sunsets over the Solway Firth, and the hills of Galloway across the border, these comfortable holiday properties were winners of the Keswick Tourism Association Country Establishments in 2000, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007 and the Cumbria in Bloom Tourist Board Rose Bowl for Self Catering Establishment winners in 2004, 2005 and 2006. Rose Cottage (ref LPD) is attached to the owner’s farmhouse home, Rambling Rose Cottage (ref LWG) and Rosedale Cottage (ref LYL) are adjacent and have both been converted to a high standard, and Primrose Cottage (ref LPG) has been converted from a former byre and stands in a courtyard which is bedecked with flower tubs, window boxes and hanging baskets. The cottages are beautifully furnished and equipped to VisitBritain ‘5 Star Gold’ standard. Guests will enjoy the friendly rare breeds sheep and ponies (including miniature Shetland ponies) and visitors are welcome to walk in the fields surrounding the farm (a red squirrel has been spotted in the grounds), as well as the many public footpaths nearby. This 500-acre farm is set in an AONB, with walks from the door plus superb fell walking nearby. Keswick stands on the shores of Derwent Water and is an excellent base to explore delightful Borrowdale.

Guests can enjoy the Lakes Distillery, 7 miles away has a lovely visitor attraction and serves good food daily. There is tennis, riding and golf, as well as good fishing locally and excellent bird watching from the farm, as well as the chance to spot the occasional red squirrel and deer, whilst it is a short drive to Osprey Watch at Dodd Wood Bassenthwaite.

    Primrose cottage is the perfect place for a "get away from it all" stay. Isabel and Alan are very generous hosts; when we arrived the log burner was roaring, there were warm scones in the kitchen on a table set for afternoon tea and there was a bottle of wine for our evening meal. The cottage is beautifully furnished and well supplied with toiletries and cleaning materials, we wanted for nothing during our short stay. We would happily stay at Primrose cottage again.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Primrose cottage. The cottage is extremely comfortable, homely and well maintained. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and one had the impression that there only aim was to ensure that we had a great stay at the cottage. Nice views, quiet and peaceful. A lovely place to wind-down and get away from the hubbub of city life. I would definitely recommend the cottage, you won’t be disappointed.
