Description

One of two pretty courtyard cottages positioned high above Ullswater with lovely views and walks from the door.

These two 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 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.
Lowther (ref NP2801) and Eamont (ref NP2802) can be booked together to accommodate up to 8 guests.

    Great cottage, little bit away from shops and bars but I'd stay again.

    The cottage is pretty and warm, with a well equipped kitchen and very comfy living room. There is no wifi and no mobile reception, but as we knew it already it wasn't a surprise, and it made for a more healthy break! Lots of gorgeous walks not far. Penrith and Keswick are close by, convenient for a rainy day.

    Was there during the beast from the east cold weather snap, the cottage surprised us my being warm inside despite it being -7 outside. Large rooms, well fitted.There are no local shops, closest place to eat is a couple of miles away. Guess it depends what you want from your cottage, we were happy to be remote.

    A lovely remote cottage situated 2 miles north of Dockray in the Lake District. Ideal as a base to explore the Lakes and quick access to Penrith and Keswick via Troutbeck. Our only downside to this location was when it snowed and we were driving a rear wheel driven car. The road which leads to the cottage was very icy and slippery and made access and departure almost impossible because of the snow covered ground. Gritting boxes were on hand but relied upon locals to grit the road area - which didn't get done. Car advice would be to have a 4x4 or a vehicle with winter tyres.

    We have been coming to Eamont for about 20 years now and were dismayed to hear that the previous owner Roy who had made us so welcome over the years had died. His friend Adrian had taken over running the cottages while we were here and was a good host. So we plan to come again to out favourite holiday cottage.
