Luxury cottage on the slopes of Catbells with views of the Borrowdale Valley Set in a spectacular secluded location, Over Brandelhow is a spacious 5-star semi-detached cottage and sits on the slopes of Catbells facing south, with wonderful views over Derwentwater and down the beautiful Borrowdale Valley. Natural materials have been used wherever possible, ash and slate floors and solid oak doors. There is an abundance of birds and wildlife to watch, red squirrels and woodpeckers are regular visitors to the garden. From the cottage there is direct access onto Catbells.
A beautiful stroll down through Manesty Woods to Brandelhow brings you to the lake, from here you can take the ferry to Lodore or Keswick. The Allerdale Ramble runs across the fell behind the cottage and takes you either to Grange or Portinscale. The situation is perfect for magnificent walks either around the lake, over Catbells to Newlands or down the Borrowdale Valley towards Honister Pass.
The cottage which sleeps up to six people in 3 bedrooms offers the following accommodation: one double bedroom with direct access to the family bathroom (bath and separate shower cubicle) along with another double bedroom on the ground floor (can be made into a twin by request) Upstairs there is another twin bedroom with a fully fitted en-suite shower room. There’s also a very spacious sitting room with an electric effect wood burner opening onto a well-equipped handmade oak kitchen with Lakeland slate worktops, oven, microwave, and large fridge freezer along with a large oak table that seats 6. This is a really sociable space, solid wood floors and large sofas with French doors that open onto a large Lakeland slate terrace with table and chairs offering fantastic views down the Borrowdale Valley. The cottage is heated via warm air from a very environmentally friendly air source heat pump, this helps cut greenhouse gas emissions and keeps the air in Borrowdale as fresh as it should be!
The picturesque village of Grange is about 1 mile away and Keswick approximately 5 miles, that’s about a 15-minute drive around the lake. Boats can be launched onto the lake at Kettlewell or at the marina in Portinscale. Relax on the terrace and admire the view in tranquil settings or hike the fells, it’s all there right on the doorstep! Come and get away from it all, it’s a great spot!

Fantastic place to stay, great location although the long steep and narrow driveway not for the faint hearted in wet weather and ice. This property is well equipped with good quality furniture and appliances. Peaceful and quiet location but very easy access to the hills and lakeside. The outside seating area is wonderful after a hard day on the hills just taking in the views and watching the wildlife. We would certainly book again. Only downside, noisy heating system but you get use to it after a while.

Unrivalled location. Perfect for dogs. Superb for walks. Excellent space to live in. Then only downside is the price for school holidays (we are both teachers). Absolutely loved it.
