Description

A restored barn with open fire situated on a working farm with views over farmland towards fells. Ideal base for touring northern Lakeland.

Perfectly situated for touring

Drive along unfenced roads surrounded by the spectacular scenery of the northern lakes, until you arrive at these cosy character holiday cottages, on a working sheep and beef farm 2.5 miles from Caldbeck. Renovated from an old barn (Swaledale Cottage (ref W1780) is the middle cottage, Ellerbeck Cottage (ref W1821) is the end cottage), they are nicely decorated and furnished and feature exposed beams, with views over farmland to the fells beyond and walking right from the door. Children can explore the workings of a real farm, they can sit on a tractor and feed the lambs (accompanied by the owner). In John Peel country, Caldbeck is a pretty and peaceful village which has, in addition to cafes, craft and antique shops, a goldsmith, clogmaker and bowling green. Situated on the edge of the National Park, it is known locally as ’Back o’ Skiddaw’, a walk over which will bring you into the bustling market town of Keswick. Keswick with its lakes, Bassenthwaite and Derwent Water are a 15-minute drive and full of interesting things to see and do. Enjoy a ride up Derwent Water on the Keswick Launch, use the many walking and cycle paths to explore the breathtaking scenery, experience Keswick Spa, the theatre by the lake and the numerous museums suitable for all the family. The traditional market town of Cockermouth, Wordsworth’s birthplace, is 14 miles and the historic city of Carlisle and the Scottish border is 16 miles. This is an excellent base for exploring the northern Lake District. Shops 2.5 miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

Ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen with beams. First floor: 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.

Open fire in living room included. NSH, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Cot. Electric cooker. Microwave. Dishwasher. Wi-fi. Shared enclosed lawned garden and furniture. Parking (2 cars).

    Lovely clean well equipped cottage. It is a little way from the nearest village but it was within easy driving distance of all the places we wanted to visit. It was very restful although we did lots of walking. Just what we needed to recharge our batteries. Would definitely book again with confidence.

    We really enjoyed our break at the cottage, it was peaceful and quiet just how we wanted it to be. The owner was very friendy, told us what we needed to know on our arrival then left us alone to enjoy our stay. The cottage was lovely and traditional, wooden beams, open fire etc and fuel for the fire was supplied which was a lovely touch too. The cottage was quite remote which was what we were looking for but it was also only a short drive out to Carlisle or Keswick if you fancied a day out. We have already talked about returning as I would love to stay again.
