This holiday property is situated on Po House Farm, and was once owned by John Myers, cousin of William Wordsworth. There are accounts of Wordsworth visiting the property in the diaries of his sister Dorothy Wordsworth. Po House is an ideal retreat for a relaxing break and an authentic experience of rural life in Cumbria. There is a beautiful marble fireplace in the living room, range with woodburner in the dining room and feature fireplace in the main bedroom. This Georgian stone house has been restored keeping its original character, with oak beams, wooden floors and old slate floors. It also enjoys beautiful views of the Whicham Valley, Black Combe Fell and the Coniston Fells at the top of the valley. A paradise for lovers of wildlife and birds, Fell View Cottage is on a working farm, located amongst 5 acres of garden and woodland, and is surrounded by fields in the Lake District National Park. There are wonderful walks, and just 1 mile away is the Irish Sea, and a beautiful, dog friendly beach at Silecroft. The Whicham Valley is remote, unspoilt and an idyllic corner of the Lake District, ideal for walkers, mountain bikers, climbers, nature lovers and those enjoying the peace and beauty of the countryside. The Duddon Valley, Southern Lakes and fells are easily reached with Coniston Water, Ennerdale Water, Wastwater, and Lake Windermere all within half an hour’s drive. Visit Muncaster Castle, the South Lakes Wild Animal Park or enjoy a ride on La’al Ratty, a miniature steam train on the narrow gauge railway travelling through the Esk Valley to Boot.
