Surrounded by dramatic scenery

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.

All on ground floor: Living room with patio door, beams and slate floor/dining room/step to kitchen. Step to 1 double bedroom. Bathroom with shower attachment and toilet.

Woodburner in living room included. Electricity and bed linen included. DVD and small library. Electric cooker. Microwave. Washing machine. Fridge/freezer. Patio and furniture. Parking (1 car). Natural water supply from spring. No smoking.

    This was our 3rd year in a row staying at the stable and we've just booked it again for next year. So that probably says it all. It's a fabulously peaceful place to stay in the most stunning scenery you're likely to find anywhere. It is very remote (which is why we love it) so you need to be organised with food etc (Tescos deliver). The walking in the area is as challenging as you want and you have a wonderfully cosey cottage with amazing views (Scafell, Pillar, Kirl Fell etc) to come back to at the end of the day. What more could you want?

    A fantastic secluded location, we loved every second and will be back. The only thing to better it would be a shower curtain to stop the flood when trying to shower without one.

    Great place to stay, can't wait to go back. The only down side of it there was a draft in the bedroom maybe coming from the top window and made it cold, even with the fire raging and the radiator not getting hot enough. Will bring an electric heater next time. Lovely location, enjoyed every minute of it

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. We are really sorry about the draught in the bedroom. We have investigated and we think that the Velux window in the roof, which is difficult to reach, had not been properly closed at some point. Hope it did not spoil your stay too much!

    We stayed here for three nights early November, views were lovely, so isolated, wildlife everywhere. If you want the shop you'll need to travel a few miles, however this is something we knew and expected, it met the need for us over the fireworks weekend. It was lovely to arrive and have a lovely warm fire lit and welcoming. I have just a few criticisms about the stable, it was not as clean as we would have liked, nothing there to clean work surfaces up etc. There was a film of tacky stuff / dust on the things in the kitchen area. The web page did state a freezer, not in the cottage, there was an ice box in the fridge, the door was broke. It would be difficult should you have brought food stuff for more days and need to use a freezer. The oven although not as clean as I would like work so well and was very efficient. The bed linen had an unpleasant odour, however clean, needs new pillows. We had brought our own so quite pleased about that. The floor is stone, quite easy to clean, had there been a mop etc to do it. The settee cushions has not been lifted and cleaned for some time and remnants of food stuff etc under them. Postitively, so warm and plenty of fuel to use, cosy and quite a retreat. I do take into concideration the location of the cottage and getting staff to keep the cottage to a cleaner standard might be difficult.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed the welcoming cosy fire, the ample supply of fuel and the views from the property. I am sorry that you found the kitchen area dusty and tacky. We have a very dedicated cleaner and caretaker and it is almost unheard of for us to have comments about cleanliness so I have asked her to go up straight away and investigate this and investigate this puzzling odour of the bedding. You are correct there is no freezer and the cottage is so tiny that there is nowhere to put one but I will make sure this is amended in the details and hope it didn’t spoil your weekend too much. Thank you again for your comments.
