This pretty terraced cottage built from locally sourced stone is one of just six properties on a working beef and sheep farm. This quiet part of the farm is dedicated to a handful of holiday cottages all in landscaped grounds and just perfect for a peaceful and memorable stay. Inside the cottage you’ll find everything you need including a well equipped kitchen with views to the rear garden and sheep in the fields beyond. On the ground floor you’ll also find an open plan living/dining room which makes a great social space for a family get together. Derwent Dale Cottage comfortably sleeps six guests in two double bedrooms and a twin room, each with plenty of storage for your belongings, making it ideal for larger families and couples. From the ground floor you can access the garden which has been newly renovated for 2018 and now features decking with patio furniture, artificial grass for a bit of year round colour, and the best bit, a relaxing hot tub so you can sooth those aches and pains after a long day of adventure. If you like the outdoors, you have direct access to Blencathra which can offer anything from a leisurely stroll to a quite challenging climb. Other Lakeland Fells in the area include Helvellyn, Skiddaw, Catbells and Latrigg, so pack your walking boots!

We had a lovely stay at this cosy cottage. We arrived in the evening and the hot tub was nice and hot ready for us to get in. The cottage is very clean, considering it allows pets there is no way you d know that there's been dog or pets in there it's spotless. Lovely views out the back. We will definitely be back.

When we arrived the hot tub was cold, we contacted the owner to be told it takes 24hrs to heat up, I feel this should off been hot for us arriving as we paid good money for our 4day stay with a hot tub and we could of gone else where cheaper without one, also there was no internet as stated as the box wasn’t working we did let the owner know about this, but he didn’t even get in touch with us regarding this matter

Lovely cottage in a lovely area. All amenities good, but the Wi-Fi isn’t very good at all. Only important if you need Wi-Fi!
