A warm welcome awaits you at this spacious accommodation situated in the south wing of Tallentire Hall. Attention to detail is evident from the minute you step through the door. Tallentire Hall is a Grade II listed building dating back to 1590 with an adjacent tower believed to be dating back to 1290. The accommodation has been thoughtfully repaired and modernised inside with the current owners starting the project in 2016 when they bought the Hall. For that romantic break the cottage has beautiful and sumptuous super kingsize beds with fluffy bathrobes, a single bed, and your choice of feather or microfibre pillows. There is a warm and inviting living room and a large kitchen/dining room to relax in or why not sit outside and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the garden. Gamekeeper’s Cottage can be booked along with Gardener’s Cottage which sleeps two guests and is also located in the south wing which is ideal if you are looking for a family holiday but like that little bit of privacy. Tallentire Hall is peacefully located at the end of a private driveway accessed through large stone pillars. The gardens are beautiful too and guests can enjoy the large sunken garden with its abundance of wildlife where rabbits, pheasants and occasionally deer have been seen. For exploring Gardener’s Cottage is only 3 miles from Cockermouth with its many speciality shops and art galleries and for those feeling a little energetic the fells of the northern Lake District. Beach 6½ miles. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 500 yards.
Gamekeeper’s Cottage can be booked together with Gardener’s Cottage (UK10169) to accommodate up to 7 guests.

    A beautifully finished cottage where every little extra has been thought of. If I was being picky it would be handy to have a brighter outdoor light to help when unloading the car in the dark. But that aside will definitely book again when we next visit family in Cumbria

    Can’t recommend this place highly enough. The place it’s self is stunning. The hosts can’t do enough to make you feel welcome and ensure you have everything you need for the perfect stay.

    Delightful well equipped property in outstanding location. My only reservation is the seating arrangements in the lounge. A couple of armchairs would make all the difference.

    Gamekeepers Cottage is a private wing of Tallentire Hall, and goodness me, we were all flabbergasted when we arrived, it's so spacious and beautiful, plus everything was as clean as a whistle, too. There were muffins waiting for us when we arrived from our drive all the way from Essex. As you look around, you really start to notice the consideration that has gone in to catering for your every need, and a few extra touches besides. Cockermouth is very close-by, there's a handy guide folder with various local suggestions, and brochures in the cottage on activities in the Lakes. The cottage has a lovely garden at the back, all fixtures, fittings, appliances were top notch as well. The friendly owners that live in the main part of the house are happy to leave you to your own devices, but at the same time are approachable and helpful. So if you like high ceilings, immaculate cleanliness, beautiful sofas, huge TV, WIFI, pleasant grounds, and a convenient location, this is the cottage for you. We slept 5 easily.

    A very well equiped and comfortable holiday cottage, which is in a wing of the main house. We had a fabulous holiday, only about 30 mins from coast and ideal for Carlisle and the northern lakes. Highly recommended for a holiday in Cumbria :)
