Chestnut Cottage is a historic cottage with spectacular views. Comfortably furnished with a log stove, big sofas, oak beams, soft beds and a very well-equipped kitchen. Our two bathrooms have views up Skiddaw Little Man while all the bedrooms and living spaces look over Borrowdale, Newlands and Coledale. The views from the patios are even better.
Chestnut accommodates two families comfortably with a bedroom for four children (or a couple) between the two double bedrooms.

The space
The cottage is 300 years old with a sympathetic modern extension. Furnished with outdoor enthusiasts in mind, you'll find plenty of drying space along with books and maps to help you plan your exploration of this beautiful area and a large wood burning stove with plenty of logs to keep you going.

Guest access
You'll have access to the whole house, other than three cupboards that we keep our supplies in.

Other things to note
The house will accommodate 8 people (adults and children) but we prefer to keep to a maximum of 6 adults. If you expect to use more than 2 beds in the middle bedroom please let us know so we can make them all up.

Location

Millbeck, England, United Kingdom

Millbeck is the perfect location in the north Lakes, basking in its southfacing position on the side of Skiddaw with a panoramic view over Borrowdale and Newlands and a variety of walks from the door. Millbeck is a quiet village just outside Keswick, within reach of excellent shops and restaurants but also secluded and quiet.

I am a maths teacher with too many hobbies: walking, climbing, sailing, cooking, gardening, beer-making, guitar playing. I'm married to Christine and we have two teenage children. We bought a beautiful cottage in the Lake District a few years ago and we intend to live there in a few years' time. For now we escape to the lakes as often as we can and when we're not there we rent our cottage out to other people who love the Lakes, and we've been delighted to find that people have looked after it as if it is their own. We've walked up most of the fells in the lakes, but we still have a few more to go before we've collected the full set.
