Surrounded by dramatic scenery

Featuring beams taken from shipwrecks on the Cumbrian Coast, this small group of holiday cottages at Birkerthwaite, a former 17th century Lakeland farmstead, lie at the end of an unmade track and are surrounded by tranquil moorland scenery and farmland. This is fantastic walking countryside and the elevated position gives views of Scafell and the Eskdale Valley, creating a unique atmosphere of tranquillity. Birkerthwaite Farmhouse (W43001) is a unique holiday property dating back to 1627 and has many original features, beamed ceilings, flagged floors and unusual oak wall cupboards built in the 1700’s. Comfortably furnished and with the benefit of an open fire and an Aga, the farmhouse is cosy and welcoming. Birkerthwaite Stable (W41477) is a single-storey converted stable with rustic charm heated by a log-burning stove. Birkerthwaite Barn (W41478) has a spacious kitchen/dining room, a galleried landing and a four poster bed. Birkerthwaite Cottage (W41479) has an upstairs open plan living area with wooden floors which opens onto a balcony overlooking gardens. Nearby attractions include Muncaster Castle and Hardknott Roman Fort, whilst the Langdale Pikes and Ambleside on the northern shores of Lake Windermere can be reached via a stunning drive over the Hard Knott and Wrynose Passes. A short drive away is Wast Water; to the west are sandy beaches. Alternatively take the steam train from Ravenglass. Shop 3 miles, pub 2.5 miles.

    Was a fantastic cottage in an amazing location. Extremely clean and well equipt. Our only downfall was that the cottage was extremely cold when we first arrived due to no central heating and it being of the backburner via the fire. Information regarding a arrival time so that the fire could of been pre lit would of been appreciated, a few hours after the fire was lit it was nice and toasty

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are extremely sorry that the woodburner was not lit for your arrival on this occasion. This is something that we always do for guests but on this day the caretaker was unable to reach the cottage because of localised flooding in the valley. Please feel assured that if you were to come again this would have been done for you. The only time it is not lit is during a hot summer. Once again we are so sorry that the property was cold on your arrival.

    Extremely cold all week despite having log burner on all day and night. Needs better heating especially after long walking day.

    Very cosy cottage, peaceful and beautiful location. Plentiful supply of fuel for the log burner, but be aware that there is no other source of heating - the fire heats the water and radiators , so you do need to keep it going in cold weather. Could do with upgrading the lighting in the living and kitchen area, and another comfier chair. If this sounds negative, it's not meant to be, just don't expect luxurious accommodation. That said, we loved it, and would definitely go again. Great walks from the door and in the immediate area.

    Amazing location, clean and well maintained. Would love to visit again if I'm up in the lake district. Like a mini home from home.
