  • What a lovely place! After a 4 hour drive down it was definitely worth it. Katie had lit the fire for us for when we arrived which was lovely! The place was gorgeous and so clean too. Had such a homely feel and it felt like we were in the middle of nowhere! Perfect stay and the perfect host! Helped us with any problems we may of had and made the stay very comfortable so thank you! Would love to come back in the future.

  • This was a lovely place to stay. Relaxed, homely, cosy and quiet. The thoughtful touches from the host Helen, including having the fire lit ready for our arrival, were much appreciated . Only 25 minutes walk to the beach and 35 minutes walk to the Gosforth Hall Inn for their gorgeous pie and chips. The log burner was easy to use and kept the cabin lovely and toasty. Bathroom was also lovely and warm. It was great to wake up with the wonderful view from the big window and watch the birds have their breakfast as we ate ours. Would definitely return for another visit and explore the area a bit further.

  • This beautiful cabin is the perfect getaway for a couple looking for some time alone. Helen is a lovely host, who had lit the log fire for our arrival which warmed us up perfectly in the February weather. We can't wait to stay again soon!

  • An amazing place to stay. Very clean and welcoming. Fantastic places to visit around the area, would highly recommend this place to stay.

  • Perfect peaceful getaway!

    Lucy2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Cabin was outstanding! Perfect for weekends away, very cosy with everything you could possibly need. If you're looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway in the Lakes then look no further!

    Frazer2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Second time back and will definitely be back again.

    Marley2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing cosy homely log cabin. A very special long weekend for my partner and I as he proposed whilst having a drink wrapped up warm sat on the decking listening to the owl. Amazing views once the mist cleared. We shall be back as we have very fond memories. Thank you so much Helen for allowing Gareth and I and our 2 fur babies to stay.

    Cumbria, United Kingdom

    We look forward to welcoming you to enjoy the secluded Western Lakes' wild, coastal beauty... It's a special corner of the world-with Lewis Carroll having found inspiration for Alice's Wonderland here, ideally placed Scafell ascent route at Wasdale Head, all packaged in a 180 year old, off grid, converted coach house. Open plan yet cozy; quirky & unique - a welcoming home for relaxing and unwinding with family and friends in front of the fire with books and board games aplenty!
    Welcome to Volcano! Literary & WWII history, world renowned walks, pubs, tea rooms, miniature steam railway, and kindness of strangers: visiting the Western Lakes is like stepping back in time. Plenty of windows and 8 foot ceilings lend themselves to a feeling of openness, whilst its location in a small group of neighbours on a shared, private courtyard amongst woodland, with a multifuel stove (i.e. not the instant 'flick for heat' of central heating, but the satisfaction of a fire well built and tended!), make for a welcoming retreat in Summer or Winter. Volcano's a unique and quirky cottage; and we've put lots of detail about it throughout this listing and in the House Rules. Please have a good read through, including the 'Other Things to Note' section, to help set the magical mood, and feel free to ask any questions you may have. What our family, friends and Guests love... "No wifi, no TV, unique, tranquil, cozy sofas, board games, log burner, big bath, comfy beds, amazing shower, morning mountain views, lovely neighbours, lots of books, imaginative decor, a house with a personality, great information folder with clear instructions." We enjoy adding to our collections, and rearranging furniture to change up the look a bit. The photographs show this in action; so, the cottage will have the feel of the photos, but everything mightn't be exactly where it has been photographed as being, if something even better for the space has come along in the meantime :-) 'OFF GRID' The 'off grid-ness' relates to all the ways that matter; and all the ways that don't: it's a wonderfully workable home. Off grid refers to... * The lack of internet or wifi in the cottage, and the reduced/non existent mobile phone reception inside the house (there's a secret windowsill where you can pick it up, and which we'll gladly tell you: but, interestingly, is rarely asked for!). * There's no traditional central heating (although keeping warm is straightforward with the multifuel stove plus other heating sources in the cottage and we welcome happy guests in all seasons), no live TV, an immersion heater for hot water, range oven which uses calor gas rather than mains gas (although you'd never know it), a septic tank, an unadopted track for access - with a few hearty potholes... ...and generally just off-grid from the speed and pressures of everyday life. Mainly it's a fun, restorative way in which to reconnect to the Lakeland landscape and each other, and we get a lot of guests thanking us for not having wifi in place, but books and board games instead. It's a working home, rather than a show home: a friendly spider will inevitably have built a web in the ten minutes before your arrival, somewhere could always do with a lick of paint, and the moles sometimes pop through the lawn. It means it's wonderfully practical for muddy wellies, kids and families; with nothing too precious, where relaxing is the order of the day. KEEPING WARM & HOT WATER In addition to the big multifuel stove in the living room, we also have freestanding oil heaters in each room, plinth fan heaters in the kitchen, and a large immersion heater to take care of hot water provision in the kitchen and bathroom (although not the radiators) should you be too worn out after your Lake District explorations to make a fire on any given evening before settling into a long bath :-) REMOTENESS Volcano is remote enough that your nearest chain supermarket is half an hour's drive away, but well serviced and connected, with locally provisioned shops, pubs, restaurants and a good road system. We have neighbours on either side, who we share the front courtyard with; and are wrapped around with fields and woodland; all a short track away from the 'main' road which will link you to the rest of the Western Lakes (and beyond...!) The Airbnb Itinerary and our Welcome Pack contains lots of information on smaller local shops (less than 3 minutes drive from the cottage) as well as other tips and recommendations in the area; from beer based, to the La'al Ratty miniature railway (our personal favourite)...! LAYOUT OF COTTAGE We have three good sized double bedrooms, one of which, known as the Alice (in Wonderland) Bedroom occupies the whole of the top floor, and has four Velux windows, so is very light, bright and airy; it is accessed via a private staircase with a curtain which provides privacy, although the bedroom itself doesn't have a door. The two other double bedrooms have their own distinct characters, and are on the middle floor, along with the family bathroom and a large landing area. We have three additional single floor mattresses which help with configurations for larger groups and families, taking occupancy up to nine. These mattresses can be made up with a full set of linens, in the master Alice Bedroom, The Blue Room and/or on the large landing area. We have one family bathroom with a long, deep, free-standing dream of a bath and a lovely rain shower; complete with dimmable lighting for relaxing soaks. PARKING There is parking for up to two cars in the private, off road courtyard which we share with our two neighbours; with a short, characterful (in terms of the potholes) dirt track that approaches it. Our house is at one end of the track, our local pub is at the other. ORIGINAL FEATURES & ECCENTRICITIES Our ground floor has the original cobbles and troughs of the coach house. This means practicality in spades for wet coats and muddy wellies; but a potential trip hazard too. You easily get used to it, and it's an amazing feature, but it's worth bearing in mind. Our sofas are really great for slouching; and are made up of old flags which we have collected over the years. They have a unique, worn, character which we love; but aren't your typical sofa covering. There is a TV that connects to a DVD player for playing DVDs and music: i.e. no live TV and no wifi, for off grid bliss. We have an eclectic assortment of films and music at the cottage, or you're welcome to bring your own. LOCAL HISTORY If you're a history buff, try entering Holmrook Hall into Wikipedia for more detail about the history of the cottage's links to Lewis Carroll, and how it came by its name: (HMS) 'Volcano'. We also have lots of locally sourced history, research and books at the cottage which you are welcome to browse. LAKE DISTRICT ATTRACTIONS Please have a look at our last section of photographs for ideas for activities, and things to do with younger family members. Volcano is well situated to enjoy peace and relaxation; whilst also being well placed for a variety of day trips: be it Go-Ape adventuring; or visiting many of the Lakes which give the area its name.
    Neighbourhoods don't come much better than this if you like a lack of street lights and a pub at the end of the track... Our cottage is the middle of three, off a private courtyard, with parking for up to two cars. The courtyard in turn accesses a private dirt track, which winds down to the River Irt, and fields and footpaths galore... REMOTENESS Volcano is remote enough that your nearest chain supermarket is half an hour's drive away, but well serviced and connected, with local shops, pubs, restaurants and a good road system. The Airbnb Itinerary and our Welcome Pack contains lots of information on smaller local shops (less than 3 minutes drive from the cottage) as well as other tips and recommendations in the area; from beer based, to the La'al Ratty miniature railway...! LITERARY REFERENCES Volcano was originally part of the stables for the Hall, which was home to the Lutwidge family, aka Lewis Carroll's (of Alice in Wonderland fame) Uncle; and, as you exit the cottage straight onto tracks and fields, it's not hard to imagine where the inspiration for timekeeping hares and lazy caterpillars came from! OUR VILLAGE The village has the life essentials. In no particular order, but I know what our priorities are :-) a children's playground, our local pub, small wildflower meadow/village ecology garden, mechanic's garage, agricultural feed store, post office, and petrol station come comprehensive grocery store stocking local goods. LOCAL TOWNS Drigg, Santon Bridge, Gosforth and Seascale (all around ten minutes drive from the cottage) have another good two handfuls of pubs, a Co-op, convenience store, takeaways, and small gift shops. MUCKING ABOUT ON THE WATER Seascale has a lovely beach, with spectacular sunsets across the Irish Sea towards the Isle of Man, and Ravenglass is The Lakes' only costal village, with a beautiful estuary for 'mucking about on the water' Swallows and Amazons style, or just watching the sun set over the dunes from the pub. Coniston Water, the setting for Swallows and Amazons, is about an hour's drive away. EXPERIENCE THE 'REAL' LAKE DISTRICT The Western Lakes are a privilege to discover. Away from the well trodden tourist trails, Volcano is less than 2 miles from the beach, and less than two miles from the Lake District National Park, with a Scafell Pike route at Wasdale Head a beautiful 10 mile drive away. As the road to this route up Scafell follows the contours of Wastwater, it inevitably makes it a slower drive than the ten miles suggests, as the views are so stunning! Ambleside and Windermere are an hour and a half drive, Lancaster around two hours, and Carlisle a similar distance in the opposite direction. The Cumbrian Coast Mainland Railway is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in England, and it delivers you to within a half hour walk from our door. The Cumbrian Coastal Line, and La'al Ratty (Cumbrian for: 'Little Railway') have featured in a BBC programme entitled 'Britain's Greatest Railway Journeys', hosted by Michael Portillo. Muncaster Castle is also just a five minute drive away and its Owl Sanctuary, falconry show and incredible views (not to mention, haunted bedroom!) make it one of the Lake District's hidden tourist gems. BRITAIN'S FAVOURITE VIEW WINNER A recent winner of 'Britain's Favourite View', Wastwater is 7 miles from our small village; which manages to squeeze in a post office come agricultural feed store, a petrol station come village store, and, the all important pub - a four minute walk (& only because of the lack of street lights!) directly from our front door to theirs... COTTAGE OF HISTORIC INTEREST During the the Second World War the cottage was part of a Royal Navy land base at Holmrook Hall, and was named HMS Volcano. It was the home of the bomb and munitions training school between 1943 and 1946, with a primary purpose of teaching munitions and explosive demolition to Royal Navy personnel and to special forces including many Norwegians. It was a top secret establishment and the locals were told that the hall had been requisitioned as a recuperation hospital for those who had suffered shipwrecks; a version of events many believe to this day. We have compiled a folder of local history for Guests at the cottage, which makes for fascinating reading.
  • The biggest thank you to Caroline and Carl for having our family stay at ‘Volcano’. It’s our FIFTH stay in this amazing location and the house looks better than ever. Thank you so much for wine and popcorn, and all the thoughtful toiletries. From the firewood and coffee to the blankets it was all perfect and comfortable despite it being a stormy February. We love it there and felt at home straight away! Our children had the best holiday, we explored the lake, beach and little train. The house was comfortable and beautiful. Thank you so much. We couldn’t recommend you enough, one of our favourite places in the world xxx

  • We booked Volcano last minute for my mums birthday , trying to find accommodation for one night for a group of 9 was really difficult at short notice, but Carl and Caroline even from all the way in America really couldn’t do enough for you , they responded quick with clear and informative responses. Booking was very easy . The only thing that let this trip down was the £150 cleaning charge(which needs to be made clearer) on top of the advertised amount on the booking which you have to pay separately for after your booking has gone through . The house itself, booking for such a large group I was worried about the accommodation, but to arrive at such a remote and stunning property myself and my group of 8 really where blown away. The location is stunning, the house itself it really quirky yet very homely, equipped with everything you can imagine and stocked with the essentials . Beds where really comfortable and the most stunning bath and huggge rain shower . The biggest thing for me was how clean everywhere was . Really really recommend. We ate in and would highly recommend the Gosforth Hall Inn, the food was amazing the atomosphere was so relaxing and snug we had lunch and returned later for our dinner as the fires where lit, the company was brilliant . Highly recommended.

    Emma2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Caroline and Carl's place in a group of 6 for a birthday, they made everything so easy, and the house was spectacular. The location is great, with everything you could want or need close by, the whole experience so enjoyable, and they added really thoughtful personal touches which made the stay even better! I would recommend this place 100% and hopefully we'll get to visit again!

    Michael2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Caroline & Carl made everything super easy for us. Their place is absolutely lovely and so cozy. Great for a walking weekend even in the middle of winter. Highly recommended!

    Ben2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • great relaxing weekend

    Lisa2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • An absolute gem. Can't wait until we can stay again.

    Giles2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Volcano is a quirky, stylish and comfortable place to spend time in the Western Lakes. We loved all being together around the log burner in the evenings and the bedrooms were comfortable and warm during a chilly spell in the Lakes. Caroline and Carl were always super prompt to respond to any questions before and during our stay. Would definitely return!

    Matthew2019-10-31T00:00:00Z

    Holmrook, United Kingdom

    Picturesque end of terrace cottage in the heart of Gosforth, centrally situated for all village amenities including shop, cafe, pubs and free car park. The Wild Olive restaurant is just round the corner which I would definitely recommend. There is a large playing field to the rear of the property with a children’s play area, a football pitch , basketball court and plenty of open space.
    The cottage has been recently renovated to a high standard, with original doors and fireplace with a wood burning stove. The living area is open plan leading onto a small but well equipped kitchen. Stairs to the upstairs are very steep and quite uneven so may not be suitable for anyone with mobility problems. The upstairs space consists of the main bedroom which looks towards the fells. The second bedroom contains a small double bed. Please note a single airbed can be provided for use in the living area if you feel a small double would be unsuitable for your group..The bathroom is a bright, attractive space and has an over the bath shower. The cottage has a small garden to the front and a private, sunny garden offset to the rear of the property which has access to the playing field ideal for families with children. A BBQ is provided as well as an outdoor table and chairs.
    Gosforth is a small but charming village situated in the western Lake District. It is a 15 minute drive to Wasdale with Wastwater the deepest lake and Scawfell Pike the highest mountain with spectacular scenery. The beautiful Eskdale valley is also a short drive away with the Ravenglass and Eskdale railway, Dalegarth Falls as well as many nice walks and good pubs. Gosforth is also only 2 miles away from beach at Seascale which you can walk to along the cycle track.
  • Simply wonderful. Very thoughtful little touches and fantastic value for money. Highly recommended!

    Debbie2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Katie’s place was perfect and exactly what we were looking for. Great value for money, sparkling clean and an amazing location. Will be recommending to friends and family for future trips to the Lake District!

    George2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The photos don’t do this place any justice. Warm and cosy, perfectly practical with everything you need for a few days away. The perfect base for a few days walking in the lakes, even better that they allow well behaved pets too. Sparkling clean and very homely, didn’t want to leave!

    Laura2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice little apartment near the centre of the village. Very clean. Great communication with the host.

    Jan-Bjorn2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Helen’s family cottage is a cosy and spacious little gem. It was a perfect base for going out and exploring the local sites. Our 2 year old loved it; the park out back was thoroughly enjoyed every morning and evening. It was unfortunate our dog couldn’t also enjoy the large playing field as no dogs allowed but the garden was big enough for her to have a good run around with a ball. We had some good food at the Kellbank and Gosforth Hall Inn. The Ravenglass steam railway was good fun and we also had a day out at Muncaster Castle, finished up with a visit to Wasdale Lake. The cottage has lots of lovely little touches, with paintings in all the rooms, fresh flowers when we arrived and a torch which was used and appreciated! We dare not touch the record player with a mischief maker in tow but it was a cool touch. We had a memorable family holiday and would highly recommend Helen’s cottage.

    Sian2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely cottage in a great little village around 30 minutes drive to Scafell Pike.

    Donna2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy Cottage lives up to its name and certainly was cosy. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t what it should be for August but the house was clean tidy and had what we needed for our stay. It was better than I had expected it to be and was a firm favourite with my 5 year old daughter as the park is right out the back. Whilst there is no actual parking with the property you could easily park in the car parks or sometimes find a space a little further down the road. The cottage is in a great location in easy walking distance of pubs and a restaurant for food as well as for travelling around this area. You are only 25mins from Wasdale if you are climbing Scafell from that point so ideal. The people in the village were very friendly and helpful. We loved our short stay here and wouldn’t hesitate to come back again.

    Sarah2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little cottage in the Lake District which all amenities you need. Very clean and great communication from the host. Highly recommend

    Gosforth, near Whitehaven, United Kingdom

    Comfortable bedroom with double bed in cosy family cottage. We are in the Western Lake District. The cottage is a short drive from Wasdale & Ennerdale which provides excellent fell walking opportunities, we're a good base for Scafell Pike. We are 1/4 mile from the village with its shops, pubs & restaurants. The cottage is next door to the Red Admiral Pub, 3 miles from Seascale train station and the beach. Paul & Lucy offer a warm friendly welcome, we provide free wi-fi and breakfast.
    Most days you can see Scafell Pike from the bedroom window and our friendly runner ducks in the garden. The room is fresh and clean, recently decorated and with a new radiator. The bathroom next door has a wonderful rain shower which our guests have really appreciated , especially after a day walking or cycling on the fells.
    Gosforth is our village. It has a vibrant public hall with regular events - see website for details. The pubs provide good pub grub and we especially like the Wild olive for Italian food. We have a folder in the guest room with more details on restaurants/pubs/shops/churches/health centres etc
  • I had a wonderful stay with Paul and Lucy. The room is lovely and spotlessly clean with one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in! Tea and coffee and lots of little touches like hairdryer etc are provided in the room. Paul made a fresh loaf of bread for breakfast even though I was heading off at 6am! Paul and Lucy are fantastic hosts, really friendly and knowledgeable and generous. I hope to stay with them again. Location is beautiful and the room is great value. Highly recommended!

    Alison2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely cottage next to a public house. Pleasant bedroom and good bathroom. Easy to find.

    Colin2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • First time visiting the Lake District couldn't have been more perfect. Communication was on point as was my stay. Breakfast was lovely and provided the energy to hike to the summit of Scafell Pike, Paul printed out the weather report so I could keep track. Cosy cottage, great food, reviving shower and comfy bed after a long hike. Ideal location to visit the Western and Southern Lakes. Will definitely be vising again.

    Adam2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • It is set perfectly for the surrounding location to explore walking or cycling, the property is very warm & spacious with everything you may need.it is a haven to enjoy peace & tranquility. The village is a stones through with all the amenities you will need! Definitely worth a visit.

    Gosforth, England, United Kingdom

    Well Cottage is a lovely modernised 17th century stone cottage on the outskirts of Gosforth village in the Lake District National Park. The cottage offers accommodation for 5 people, with an enclosed garden. One of its two upstairs bedrooms is ensuite and the other has an attached toilet and washbasin. The downstairs bedroom is a single room with a bathroom nearby. It has a kitchen with dining area and the sitting room looks over the small walled garden with shrubs, flowers and a quince tree.
    Well cottage is just 300m from the centre of Gosforth Village which boasts a comprehensive general store, a pizzeria and two pubs. Banking and Post Office facilities, a pharmacy and a health centre are also available in Seascale. We lie just at the edge of the Western Fells, 15mins drive from the inspiring scenery of Wastwater, but in the other direction 19mins from the sandy beach of Seascale with views across to the Isle of Man. The four main western valleys of Ennerdale, Wasdale, Eskdale and the Duddon Valley are all within at most a half hour drive each with contrasting scenery and rarely visited by tourists to the Lake District.
  • Barbara and Dick were lovely, very responsive and helpful. Would definitely recommend, perfect place for exploring the West Lakes and for Scafell Pike.

    James2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place to explore the western Lake District

    Caroline2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is great, really well appointed and a perfect location to explore Wasdale and the Western Lakes. Even though I was here for work, I would definitely come back for a break in the Lakes. A wonderful, cosy place that offers plenty of space to relax.

  • We had a lovely stay in Well Cottage whilst visiting the lakes and climbing Scafell. Its in a good location within easy driving of Wasdale and Eskdale. The cottage was clean and comfortable with well stocked kitchen including good cooker and dishwasher. Parking was easy as just to side of cottage. Garden was lovely to sit in. Barbara was a very friendly host who gave us good tips for meals and was a pleasure to chat to.

    Zane2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful week in Gosforth at Well Cottage. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. The garden was full of butterflies on a sunny afternoon, offering a quiet haven. Gosforth is a great base for heading to the hills in Eskdale and Wasdale, but also has the option of a short drive to the beach at Seascale. It also avoids the crowds of other Lake District locations. Buttermere is only an hour away. The village shop is well stocked and the Wild Olive pizzas are amazing. We also ate well at the Gosforth Hall Inn. Many thanks to Barbara for being a great host.

    The Lakeland village of Gosforth lies between the great hills of the western Lakes: Scafell, Great Gable and the sea. Potters Barn has accommodation for six. It has parking for two cars on site and has a small patio garden/barbecue area. It occupies two floors, the upper being a spacious living/dining area while the lower floor comprises kitchen, bathroom, toilet and three bedrooms one being en suite. The village with a well stocked store, pubs and a wood-fired pizzeria is close by.
    Potters Barn built in the 18th Century has cobbled walls and is the first and second floors above Gosforth Pottery. It was modernised about 20 years ago and has recently been refurbished.
    Potters Barn is just 300m from the centre of Gosforth Village which boasts a comprehensive general store, a pizzeria and two pubs. Banking and Post Office facilities, a pharmacy and a health centre are also available in Seascale, which is 10 minutes drive. We lie just at the edge of the Western Fells, 15mins drive from the inspiring scenery of Wastwater, but in the other direction 10mins from the sandy beach of Seascale with views across to the Isle of Man. Scafell, Great Gable and the four main western valleys of Ennerdale, Wasdale, Eskdale and the Duddon Valley are all within a half hour drive each with contrasting scenery and rarely visited by tourists to the Lake District.
  • Fantastic stay, thank you very much!

  • Natasha's place is a nice and cosy cottage to stay in if you are visiting the Lake District. Other than slightly slow wifi (which was probably due to the weather), my friends and I had a great experience staying at Roses Cottage. Would definitely choose to stay here again!

    Chloe2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

  • Amazing, cute, clean and comfortable cottage in an idyllic location. Scarfell Pike, Wastwater and Seascale beach are all close by. It was a home away from home, where everything had been thought of. Natasha was a great host, fast communication (especially regarding safety due to storm Ciara!), and tips on things to do and places to see. Highly recommend! We will be back for a longer period next time.

    Melissa2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

  • Amazing stay! Really good walks nearby, beautiful surroundings, perfect size room for two adults and two dogs. Next village (Gosforth) has a good little shop to get bits and bobs and The Bridge Inn pub (five min walk) had really good meals! Will defiantly be coming back here :)

    Iain2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • A very good location for walking fells round Wastwater and thankfully excellent drying facilities provided too! (best we've come across). The weather was poor so laundry room with heated drying rails was a wonderful provision for muddy boots and drenched walking clothes! (We purchased drying rail for ourselves after our visit!) Maria's husband was very friendly and helpful coming to see if there was anything we needed. Although the Stable is below their living quarters it is very private with little noise. Highly recommend Wasdale Head Inn for roaring fire and excellent food, just what is needed after a good fell walk!

    Marcia2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • The Stable is a studio on the ground floor of a large farmhouse. It has a bedroom/living area, a kitchen and a bathroom with a power shower. Maria provides tea and coffee, with some milk in small cartons. The bed is comfortable and I slept very well during my visit. The Stable has everything you need for self catering, but the Bridge Inn is a four minute walk down the road and does some excellent food. Freeview and WIFI are provided, and work nicely.

    Andrew2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Maria is a welcoming, friendly host who looked after us really well and The Stable is a lovely place to stay. Even though it's a studio it feels spacious enough and it was spotlessly clean, well-appointed and very comfortable for the two of us. The shower is amazing! The location is great for the pub down the road (Jennings Cumberland Ale and good food) and for numerous high and low level walks. Be aware that there is another apartment just next door (as mentioned in listing) and the family home overhead so there can be other people around. We had a great short stay and look forward to returning - there are plenty of hills in Wasdale left for us to climb!

    Andy2020-01-04T00:00:00Z

    Ain House Bothy - New for 2020
    The Bothy is a single storey detached stone building with a private lawn area. It has uninterrupted views southwards to Muncaster Fell. The Bothy is a refurbished building blending the old world charm of open beams and slate floors with modern accents like partial underfloor heating and a modern kitchen. There is a log burner in the living room. The bedroom has beautiful views over the adjacent fields - (you may find cattle at your window!) and beyond to Muncaster and Birker Fells. Ain House has an on-site wood and easy access to Irton Fell to the north with paths onto Illgill Head where there are tremendous views into Wasdale and towards the Scafell. There is a small slate patio and adjacent parking.
    Ain House and cottages are set back about 300m from Bowerhouse Bank off their own drive. The buildings sit against the backdrop of Irton Fell and are surrounded by beautiful countryside. There are no other properties visible from the property - it’s remote enough to feel ‘away from it’ but only half a mile or so from two local pubs. Formerly farm buildings and at one time used as a sawmill and timber workshop, the main house has been extended and refurbished by the owners. The outbuildings have all been renovated - The Stables, Cartshed and Bothy having been lovingly converted and a pre-existing cottage also having been fully gutted and redeveloped. The owners are constantly improving the premises and projects particularly to improve the external areas are ongoing but will not detrimentally impact on your stay.

Maria was a superb host and went over and above to make us feel welcomed. Such a perfect weekend break and just 10 minutes drive from Scarfell and a beautiful pub just 300 yards away that served amazing food. Thank you for an amazing stay.

    Georgina2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Undercroft. The accommodation was clean, cosy and very well equipped. The location was also fab, very close to Wastwater Lake & Scafell Pike, with a lovely local pub down the road. It was also dog friendly, with plenty of enclosed grounds for the pooch for his evening and morning walks. We were especially blown away by the hospitality provided by the owners, Maria & Ian. We were greeted with a friendly smile and plenty of local tips on where to visit, they even lent us their GPS for our trip up Scafell. We had a great chat with them both on our first evening, it was truly a pleasure to meet them. We would recommend this accomdation to anyone and will be sure to stay again in the future. Much love.

    Jessica2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • This was a repeat visit for us - can’t get a better recommendation than that! Perfect size for the two of us taking a weekend break between Christmas and New Year for some winter walking. Location is perfect for all the southwest fells - handy access to Wasdale and Eskdale in particular. Santon Bridge Inn food and beer both recommended after a long day’s walking.

Upstairs is the lovely double bedroom with fabulous views from the window and fitted wardrobes. Outside there is a patio area with a table and sun loungers and guests can use our lovely garden with ample seating to admire the Wasdale Valley fells. The cottage is part of The Old School and adjoins the owners property. (URL HIDDEN)
    Betty's cottage is located between Holmrook and Santon Bridge close to the River Irt. There are lots of paths across the fields around the cottage leading as far as the coast at Ravenglass, Muncaster Fell and Wasdale. At the end of the lane is St Paul's church where you will find a 9th century Celtic cross in the graveyard and amazing views of Wasdale valley. Wasdale is about 20 minutes by car and is the most mountainous of the Lake District valleys. Wastwater is the deepest lake in England, Scafell Pike is the highest mountain in England and the view from here was voted "BRITAINS FAVOURITE" all close to Betty's cottage. Hiking and walking here is a truly memorable experience. When you stand at the head of the valley you will be surrounded by the massive peaks of Great Gable, Scafell, Lingmell etc there are no finer mountains to walk. The miniature railway 'The L'all Ratty is located at Ravenglass and runs to the beautiful Eskdale Valley. Also near Ravenglass is the amazing Muncaster Castle.
  • Lesley and John are great hosts and go over and above what is expected to make you feel welcome. There were some lovely touches such as fresh flowers, chocolate brownie and some treats for our dog when we arrived. The cottage / apartment is very close to the beautiful scenery of Was Water and the Eskdale Valley. It is only a short drive to the Bower House Inn where we had a very nice meal and would recommend a visit. Ideal if you have a dog as Betty's Cottage is situated well back off the road down a quiet lane, so lots of space for them to run around.

  • We had such a perfect experience at Betty's Cottage. We arrived after a very long drive to a cosy, warm little cottage and Lesley had kindly provided some delicious cake, 2 shots (not sure what but they were amazing, schnapps?!) And some treats for our pup Phoebe. Not to mention some home made bread and eggs. The cottage is clean, very homely with everything you'd need. It felt like coming back to a home away from home after being out walking all day. The location is ideal and there are so many beautiful walks nearby as well as dog friendly pubs. Lesley has some great recommendations. Thank you Lesley and John for being such wonderful hosts, we would love to return for another stay. I highly recommend booking here. Love from Amber, Nate and Phoebe xxx

    Amber2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a brilliant base if your wanting to explore the NW Lakes. Stunning views of the nearby Fells. A brisk walk to the local pub, which is great. Amazing hosts. Lesley, Jon and Bruce make you feel realy welcome from the second you arrive. Great communication with quick replies. Cant praise Betty's Cottage enough. Definately be back.

    Steve2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lesley is a wonderful host and Betty's is a great cottage for a break. So many thoughtful touches to our stay - we especially enjoyed the home-made bread!

    Andrew2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Warm and cosy. Kitchen well appointed. Great welcoming touches to make our stay perfect.

    Sarah2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Betty's Cottage couldn't be in a more idyllic part of the Lake District. The beautiful Wast Water Lake is about 20 minutes away, as is the UK's highest peak, Scafell Pike (although that will take you at least three hours to ascend!). Betty's Cottage is situated in the middle of the countryside with sweeping views of the mountains and valley. We woke every morning to the simple sound of wondrous silence, punctuated by the mooing of cows and not much else. We even spotted bunnies hopping across the field one morning. The cottage itself has everything you could wish for for a wonderfully comfortable stay. We cooked dinner every night in its cosy kitchen, which has all the amenities you will need, caught up on some reading and Netflix in the evenings in the lounge, which has a wonderful view over the valley too, and slept like the dead in the lovely upstairs bedroom. Lesley is a very gracious and generous host who treated us to local eggs, some beautiful locally-grown tomatoes and the most scrumptious home-baked cake and bread. We couldn't have been happier and returned to London feeling utterly refreshed. We hope to be back to see you soon, Lesley, John, Lucy, Louis and Bruce! Thank you so much! P.S. Be sure to pop into Woodlands restaurant/cafe for their yummy breakfasts and the best scones around. Also, be sure to have lunch or dinner at the superb Bower House Inn -- their local brew is great too. There's a lovely old church, Irton Church, with a ninth-century Celtic cross up the road that's worth a visit too.

    Adrienne2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Nice quiet location with fully equipped kitchen and private lounge. Great location for walking Scafell peak《car still needed) Friendly and free bread and eggs thrown in- great couple of days

    Room 3 is a double room. We also have listings for Room 1 with two single beds, Room 2 with a double bed, and a listing for all three. We are near to Drigg Beach, and under 10 minutes walk to Drigg Railway Station on the West Cumbrian Coastal line. Nearby are Ravenglass for La'al Ratty Train, Wasdale, Wastwater, Scafell Pike, and Eskdale. There are local food shops and a mix of pubs and restaurants. Although we don't provide any meals you are welcome to bring food and cook in the shared kitchen.
    Coastal West Cumbria offers space to walk, stand still, look, see and breath, a breath of fresh air. Cumbrian space, light, contrast; a place to recharge your batteries, unwind, walk, pass the time of day....and our home is pretty much like that too.
    Drigg is a mile from the beach and about 12 miles to the head of either Eksdale, or Wasdale for Scafell Pike, Great Gable etc.. We have David Powell-Thompson, qualified mountain leader and guide lives a few hundred yards away. Also, carolclimb; Carol Emmons and Richard Sagar, for climbing and all manner of outdoor pursuits, based in Wasdale. We are on the route of the Seascale to Whitby C2C Cycle route over Hardknott Pass, the starting point is 3 miles north by road or the next stop north on the local train line. Open water swimming is permitted in many of the lakes and tarns nearby, safety first, and a wetsuit is strongly advisable in winter! Driving is often on narrow roads with passing places, and the Hardknott Pass, not for the faint hearted, is the steepest road in England. The ruins of Hardknott Roman Fort are part way up. For more leisurely travel La'al Ratty Railway narrow guage railway travels from Ravenglass to Dalegarth for Boot in Eskdale. Muncaster Castle and Grounds, three miles down the road, are on the informal side of Stately Homes, they host several fairs and events during the year and the Rhododendrons and Azaleas are quite stunning in the late Spring. This is the quiet side of the Lakes and we are about an hours drive from Windermere for scenic boat travel and all things Beatrix Potter. Holmrook Garage in Holmrook is handy for fuel and general produce, not 24 hours. The local shops in Seascale provide most basic requirements for a weekend away, but not exotic fare such as found in city stores.
  • We had a really lovely time staying with Sally and Roger. Everything was super clean and comfortable and welcoming. It was a treat to be so close to the sea and mountains!

    Anna2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Really comfortable bed, and two lovely dogs! A great place to stay and very convenient for Wast Water.

    Liam2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    Melanie2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • My friend and I had a rather challenging day on our bikes so it was a breath of fresh air to see a friendly face after it all. Sally has a lovely home where we were able to clean and dry our boots, cook some supper and have a lovely hot shower before a very comfortable sleep!

    Harry2019-10-24T00:00:00Z

    The Farmhouse has been at the entrance to the Santon Bridge hollow since the days of the old packhorse trains that used to ply their way between Whitehaven and Kendal over Styhead Pass. This fascinating old building provides spacious accommodation for up to eight people (sometimes more), with breathtaking views of Wasdale. Short lets are available at last minute so just phone. The house is good for couples, families (with kids), and we do take pets at a small cost.
    With four large double en-suite bedrooms, two wood burning stoves, a classic ‘living’ farm kitchen, separate ‘character’ dining room and a comfortable, light living room, this is a truly special place to base yourself in the Western Lake District. Essentially, the house is a warm, homely and relaxing space, set in the most beautiful of locations, the building is over 150 years old and has the patina to show it, it is not a boutique hotel! Please note we do not provide towels so please bring them, overseas guests however will be supplied. The picture you see on the website shows the farmhouse which is on the left side of the photo. To the right is a converted barn which is a separate property, the farm has been converted into several separate buildings now and is a very pleasant location at the foot of the Wasdale valley.
    The River Irt is nearby. This is Wasdale and it has Britain's favourite view! A pub is 300 metres away. The farm buildings are isolated from other properties in the neighbourhood, but it is a 'complex' in that there are other people living on the site and there are five separate dwellings which have been converted from other agricultural buildings. So please be aware you will be in close proximity to other holidaymakers but possibly won't see much of them. The neighbourhood is quite sparsely populated and relies on agriculture and tourism as the main trades and employment. If ypu are planning to bring pets please make sure that they are kept on a lead especially around livestock. Don't allow them to chase sheep (mainly Herdwicks) which roam freely on the fells. The pubs in the area are great and serve good food, in large portions, and the local beers, some brewed on the premises, are fantastic.
  • Fantastic

    Sean2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • A comfortable, roomy, well equipped house in beautiful countryside.

    Hannah2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great weekend away here. The house was nice and roomy, with ensuite on every room and set in beautiful countryside. What a lovely view to wake up to in the morning.

    Suzanne2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • A large welcoming home perfect for large family with all bedrooms having en-suite. The house is quite remote and therefore a lot of travelling to see some attractions, but perfect if you want some great walks and good pub food locally.

    Cheryl2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful place for a holiday. It was perfect for us as two families of four, plenty of space. Tony was super-helpful at all times, and although the location is relatively remote, there are lots of excellent pubs within easy reach, several small shops within about 10 minutes drive, and we had a Tesco delivery arrive as planned on our first day.

    Nick2019-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • If you're looking for a homely place to accommodate a larger group comfortably, in a beautiful corner of the Lake District near good walks (and a pub!) then this is the place. We really enjoyed our short stay and would love to come back. Tony and Rachael are very easy to communicate with and I would definitely recommend staying at their place.

    Olly And Abby2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy and comfortable, nice and quiet but within easy reach of everything you would want from the Lakes.

    Paul2019-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the farmhouse as a group of 8 for the weekend to walk up the peaks of the Lake District. The place was lovely and accommodated us all comfortably. The rooms are spread over 4 floors and were well-equipped. The property is surrounded by others on the same plot. The neighbours are very friendly and accommodating. The local pub, The Bridge Inn is just a 2 minute walk away. It is cosy, has a great menu, and offers many real ales. Various roads meet at Santon Bridge so you do not need a great detour to get around. Plus, it is less than a 30 minute drive from Wasdale Head - for those inclined to climb the peaks like us. On our final night the power went out in the home which required an electrician to fix, and could not be restored before we left after breakfast the next day. I informed Tony, our host and he went out of his way to help organise an emergency call-out and kept us informed. Tony generously compensated our meal at the local pub that evening and there were plenty of torches for light. There was even wood for the living room stove to keep us warm. The neighbours went out of there way to help us. They brought is hot water and cooked our breakfast sausages for us! We did find that the water pressure was not sufficient to run multiple showers in the different en suites simultaneously, but this was not a great issue and we just went one at a time. I would recommend bringing groceries to supplement your entire stay to save travelling a bit of a distance if you want top up at a bigger supermarket. Even with the unfortunate power outage, we had a great time and look forward to booking again in the future to climb Scafell Pike (when the weather is a little better!) Thank you again, Tony.

    Victorian period house, homely family place, primitive in parts, please bear with us whilst we renovate. English Lake District National Park is all around you, if you like outdoor life + hiking this is the place for you. Views of Scafell and the Screes, 2 real ale pubs just downhill. Cook + dine facilities nine persons. One + half miles walk to Wastwater, but you need your own car to reach Fern Bank +to access other amenities in the National Park. Ask queries any time via email/mobile phone.
    Fern Bank is self catering. Kitchen pots and cutlery are provided for 9 persons. Bed linens and bathroom towels are provided. Local Farm shop for basics and fresh teas and coffees is open Easter to start of October, also has a children's play area. If you require pub food on arrival, please book a table at either The Strands Inn, or the Screes Inn a week or so before your stay. Both pubs are two minutes walk downhill from Fern Bank.
    Nearby places of interest for hikers are England's highest mountain, Scafell and deepest lake, Wastwater, Britain's most beautiful view - Wasdale Head. Outside the valley we love to visit Muncaster Castle and the nearby ancient fishing port at Ravenglass. Further afield are Cockermouth, which is Wordsworth's birthplace and Keswick near to the serene Derwentwater and Borrowdale valley. Information for all local activities will be found at Fern Bank in the hallway.
  • This is an excellent house in an excellent location. There's quick access to Scafell Pike and the surrounding fells in this part of the Lake District. With two pubs on the doorstep, serving food and providing a wealth of ales, Fern Bank is a great choice for people. If you don't want to eat out the kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, utencils, etc so you can cook your own food and enjoy the comfort of the house. The dining room is great and you can relax in either of the living rooms next to a lovely warm fire - the firewood is provided! Hilary is an excellent host. She is off site but available via messaging to answer any questions and provide information that you may need. You are able to check in and out independently and enjoy your personal time in this wonderful abode. Top marks!

    Jon2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • A house which is full of character in a beautiful location. The rooms are equipped with an interesting range of period furniture and it feels like stepping back in time. The house also has stunning views over the village across to the Fells. Very helpful host too. Would recommend.

    Rob2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • 8 of us stayed at this property and loved it, the house is slightly dated but period features don’t distract from its potential. It’s location was spot on for a winter walk over Scarfell Pike and the multiple fires were a real treat on our return. Every utility the could imagine a home from home. Internet in the middle of nowhere was a saviour as I’m fully digital and tied to tech! Locally there are two local pubs, owned by the same person I think, we ate in the Strands and drank in the Screes. Lovely food and cracking entertainment in the Screes. Our host Hilary,although not local was great with top tips and her communication was faultless.

    Dave2019-11-10T00:00:00Z

    Vivien2019-09-07T00:00:00Z

    Paul2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property was clean and had absolutely everything we needed to make our stay easy. With five children there was plenty of space for them to enjoy themselves. We had a walk along to the lake which was just beautiful and popped into the two pubs at the bottom of the hill. The farm shop came in handy for milk and bread and we really took advantage of the space outside the property to have a BBQ and play some games with the children. Hilary has been in contact and provided extensive directions and instructions for the house. We would love to go and use the house again sometime in the future. Thanks for a really memorable stay Hilary!!

    Panos2019-08-04T00:00:00Z

    The Kellbank is an old coaching inn situated in the charming village of Gosforth Cumbria. We offer a choice of excellent rooms and breakfast can be purchased separately, quality food and fare which can be served in our bar or restaurant. Great real ales and a log fire. The Kellbank is perfect for work, rest and play, close to the beautiful valleys of Wasdale and Eskdale yet convenient for those working at Sellafield without the traffic problems of the north.
    The rooms have Sky movies and all sports channels. The super fast wifi is free to use and we also offer free phone calls from within the rooms. Massive kids play area outside free to use as well as plenty of car parking. We offer packed lunches for the guests heading out for the day - just ask a member of staff
    Lovely quaint village in the heart of the western Lake District with all amenities just a short walk away. The world famous Viking/Norse Fishing cross is at St Marys church

    Parkgate Farm Holidays is a peaceful farmstead site with a few sheep and friendly donkeys at the foot of the Eskdale and Wasdale valleys in Cumbria's Western Lakeland. You've got easy access to the fells directly from the property, and there are also several good west-coast beaches within ten minutes' drive. There's a heritage steam railway line that runs near the farm, and there are several popular visitor attractions within easy reach such as Muncaster Castle, Beacon Museum and The Rum Story.

  • Beautiful location, clean, excellent communication. Brilliant!

    Kathryn2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely place. Lovely bungalow, great views (even on a rainy January weekend!) and super hosts. We had a great weekend, and very much would recommend.

    Janet2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Ideal location for where we were working. Clean, comfortable and very warm. No Wi-Fi (we knew that) mobile phone signal on 3 and 02 is mostly non existent in that part of Cumbria! That being said, I would definitely stay again if in the area

    Craig2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location for climbing Scafell and perfect base to relax after a long day in the mountains. Took me by surprise how big the cottage is and the surrounding area is beautiful. Would 100% stay here again coming to the lakes.

    William2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay, very clean and well equipped. The surrounding countryside is good for walks and our baby loved the donkeys. We will stay here again if in the area.

    Kathryn2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location, really clean and great value If your climbing scafell pike, this is a great find

    Alec2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • This was a perfect base for us for our walking trip up Scafell Pike. The place was spacious with a good sized kitchen and 3 very comfortable beds. The views were gorgeous, especially at dawn and dusk. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to explore the wonderful lakes and coastline nearby.

    The two bedroomed cottage is built in traditional style and set within the grounds of the magnificent Irton Hall. The cottage enjoys the full benefits of this peaceful parkland setting itself located in a quiet, yet particularly beautiful area of West Cumbria. Ormondroyd Cottage is a semi-detached cottage to the side of the main hall with its own entrance hall and French doors from the living room to a small balcony overlooking open countryside.
    Located in a former stately home that King Henry VI visited, Ormonroyd Cottage is the perfect place for a Lakeland getaway. With stunning views over the woods and mountains, you can enjoy watching the birds from the comfort of your living room.
    Lovely scenery with England’s deepest lake “Wastwater” only 15 minutes down the road.
  • Fantastic place, great views and amazing food in the restaurant and bar, highly recommended.

    Deborah2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely and quiet place with an east-facing kitchen - so beautiful sunshine at breakfast (if the sun is out, that is). I'd use again.

    Brigitte2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • A clean cottage, great estate, really friendly staff. Highly recommended. Just avoid going over Hardnott Pass, unless you enjoy risking your lives. 🤕 I would advise taking main roads.

    Kenneth2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning location

    Aidan2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is a restful cottage. It is part a the irton hall bed and breakfast and this place is wonderful. Quite hard to come there through the mountain but when you are there, it’s so nice and restful. The cottage itself was very clean with everything we need. The restaurant in the bed and breakfast was excellent, we enjoyed this place and we’ll think to come back another time.

    Kevin2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Sparkling clean and super spacious. Parking is plentiful though the location was a bit confusing to find. Overall a great value!

    Cheryl2019-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great location for Scafell, food and beers in the main hall are very good, plenty of parking. Watch out for the Peacock!

    Richard2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay and in a splendid location. Gem of a find and would highly recommend.

    1692 Wasdale offers luxury boutique accommodation set in its own grounds. Here you can be sure of genuine, warm and flexible customer service at all times. We have spectacular views of the Wasdale valley along the Screes to Scafell Pike and also across the sea to the Isle of Man. 1692 Wasdale is an exciting blend of ancient buildings and contemporary interiors with high beamed ceilings and exposed stonework alongside underfloor heating, 5 delightful bedrooms with contemporary ensuite bathrooms
    This is our largest room and has been named after the glorious fells of the lake district and in particular Scafell Pike which is the highest mountain in England and can be seen from 1692 Wasdale. This ground floor room has underfloor heated flagstones, Herdwick sheepskin bedside rugs and bi-fold doors to its own west facing patio. The luxury bathroom is situated on a glass fronted mezzanine floor above the bed and reached by your own private internal staircase with a wall hung toilet, a huge walk-in shower with monsoon head, 2 basins and a freestanding Silver coloured bath. With complementary toiletries from The Bath House in Sedburgh and large soft Egyptian cotton towels this is a very special room. There is a luxury 6ft superking size bed, 4K flatscreen smart TV, desk with light and access to sockets, wardrobe and drawers. The seating area is a good place to relax and enjoy a drink from the beverage tray with fresh milk and home made biscuits or, alternatively, help yourself to something a little stronger from our Honesty Bar in the dining room. An Iron & ironing board can be available in this room. Dogs are not allowed in this Room.
    1692 Wasdale enjoys a peaceful, elevated position above the Wasdale Valley & far reaching views. With direct access to the bridleway network, there are good runs/walks from our doorstep. In this rather rugged part of the National Park each season brings its own delights. A short drive will give you access to the lake, fells and taller peaks. The coast with its expanse of sand and dunes is only 5 miles away. Gosforth village is 1 mile away and there are several pubs/restaurants in the area The  Wasdale valley is home to England’s deepest lake - Wastwater, its highest mountain - Scafell Pike and the smallest Church. From Wasdale you can also, walk Scafell, Great Gable, Kirk Fell, Pillar, Red Pike, Yewbarrow, Haycock, and Illgill Head all of which offer their own challenges and rewards.  In the  adjacent valleys of Eskdale and Ennerdale you will find Hard Knott, Crinkle Crags, Harter Fell, Scoat Fell, Starling Dodd, High Crag, High Stile and another Red Pike! However public transport is not extensive and although there are busses locally and a train station just 5 miles away, you will be able to explore much more if you have a bike or car as transport.
  • A modern and stylish space, this luxury BnB is perfect to get away from the busy areas around the Lakes. It is in the countryside, about 10 minutes drive from Wast Water and some stunning walking routes. Would highly recommend staying as the host are very accommodating and go the extra mile to make your stay as comfortable as possible! Will definitely be coming back to stay here!

    Sophia2019-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely stunning place! The room was beautiful and very stylish! Faith and Steve were fantastic hosts, very friendly and very accommodating!

    A 2020 barn conversion finished to a very high standard with every consideration given to the guests. The Stables is a unique and comfortable house offering 'upside down' layout with the ground floor offering 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (1 en suite) hallway and stairs to the open plan living which has a fully fitted designer kitchen and breakfast bar, dining table and chairs. There is also lots of comfy seating and access to the patio area with hot tub.
    The Stables offers quality fixtures and fittings blended with the old world charm of open beams and wooden floors. The bathrooms and hall have underfloor heating. The open plan living room has a log burner, Juliet balcony with views to the fells and french doors to a rear patio with 6 person hot tub. The property is accessed via a courtyard and parking area which is shared with 2 other cottages all arranged to ensure privacy is assured. Ain House has an on-site wood and easy access to Irton Fell to the north with paths onto Illgill Head where there are tremendous views into Wasdale and towards the Scafell range. The property is orientated to the south maximising sun and the wonderful views of Muncaster Fell, Birker Fell and the coast. The Stables benefits from its own private hot tub and terraces to the front and rear. This is a real home from home. The breakfast bar is perfect for a snack or drink, there is a dining area and comfortable settees for you to relax in front of the wood burner and plan a relaxing or more active stay - whichever you prefer.
    Ain House and cottages are set back about 300m from Bowerhouse Bank off their own drive. The buildings sit against the backdrop of Irton Fell and are surrounded by beautiful countryside. There are no other properties visible from the property - it’s remote enough to feel ‘away from it’ but only half a mile or so from two local pubs. Formerly farm buildings and at one time used as a sawmill and timber workshop, the main house has been extended and refurbished by the owners. The outbuildings have all been renovated - the Stables and another rebuilding (The Cartshed) having been lovingly converted and a pre-existing cottage also having been fully gutted and redeveloped. The owners are constantly improving the premises and projects particularly to improve the external areas are ongoing but will not detrimentally impact on your stay. Whilst offered to rent individually it is feasible to group book 2 or 3 properties which can sleep 14 in total. Occasionally a further one bedroom (2 person) cottage may be available by separate negotiation.

    A 2020 barn conversion finished to a high standard with every consideration given to the guests. The Cartshed is a unique cottage with the open plan ground floor leading to a luxurious bathroom and stairs to the two first floor bedrooms and patio / hot tub area. The kitchen is a notable feature, designed to accommodate the culinary aspirations of the self caterers. The ground floor living area and bathroom has underfloor heating for cosy winter days and the log burner completes the picture.
    The Cartshed offers quality fixtures and fittings blended with the old world charm of open beams and wooden floors. The ground floor has underfloor heating and comprises an open plan living room and kitchen. 2 first floor bedrooms are accessed via a semi open staircase and landing also connecting to the rear door to the terrace and hot tub area. The property is accessed via a courtyard and parking area which is shared with 2 other cottages all arranged to ensure privacy is assured. Ain House has an on-site wood and easy access to Irton Fell to the north with paths onto Illgill Head where there are tremendous views into Wasdale and towards the Scafell range. The Cartshed is a barn conversion - it retains some features of it’s former use - particularly in the bathroom where an old bread oven has been retained along with a stone basin. It’s a quirky property. Outside are the footings of an engine that used to run a driveshaft which ran through the property into the main barn and was used to run a saw bench and even generated electricity in the days prior to a mains supply to the property. The drive shaft opening is now a bedroom window and the mortice machine used around the turn of the 19th / 20th century was found on site and we have plans to display it nearby. The Cartshed forms part of the Ain House complex of buildings. Whilst offered to rent individually it is feasible to group book with the 2 other on site properties (Ain House Cottage and Ain House Stables) which can sleep 14 in total. Occasionally a further one bedroom (2 person) cottage may be available by separate negotiation.
