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


A rurally placed cottage with spacious south facing garden room and splendid views to Scarfell Pike. Perfect location to ‘get away from it all’

In the heart of the Lake District National Park

Woodend is situated off the beaten track in an accessible but remote location high on Birker Fell. Set within a relatively quiet, unspoilt area of the Lake District National Park, 7 miles from the main coast road, local village shops and the nearest pub are 4 miles, smaller market towns are 8 miles and larger towns are 15 miles away. It is a short drive to the more populated areas of Windermere and Coniston. These three unique self-contained holiday properties (refs 26868, 26869 and 27804) are full of character and charm with fantastic views of Scafell Pike, Bow Fell and Crinkle Craggs. They are set within, though not part of, a working farm, and are therefore surrounded by farm animals. The Bothy (ref 26868) offers cosy, comfortable, detached ’upside down’ accommodation within a private enclosed garden area. The School House (ref 26869) faces due south up the fell and offers detached ’studio accommodation’ and a spacious, south-facing conservatory/garden room (with an additional multi-fuel stove) and a private enclosed garden area. The Buttery (ref 27804) adjoins the barn and is completely self-contained with its own entrance and an enclosed private garden area. Woodend Cottages are just a short walk from Devoke Water and are situated 3 miles from both the Eskdale Valley and the Duddon Valley, conveniently located for Ulpha, Eskdale, Boot, Seathwaite and Broughton-in-Furness. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 31/2 miles.

All on ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen/bedroom area with double (four poster) bed. Shower room with toilet. Conservatory/garden room.

Woodburner in conservatory (logs at cost). Washing machine. Enclosed garden with sitting-out area and furniture.

All properties: Multi-fuel burner in living room (coal included, logs at cost). Economy 7 central heating, gas, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Travel cot on request. HD satellite TV (full package). DVD. Gas cooker. Use of tumble dryer available. Fridge/freezer. Wi-fi. Natural grounds. Gas barbecue. Parking (1 car). Natural water supply from stream. No smoking.

    Just fantastic, if waiting for a whistling kettle is frustrating then sort of holiday is not for you. Sedate and calming - awsom and awinspiring and above all simply beautiful surroundings and you are surrounded by it. This is the lakes at its best. And the school house is a treat log burners that just melt you, beautiful bed and good amenities. A great garden too. A little stream from devoke water just giving a little back ground music. We'll be back loved it and highly recommended it.
