The Cottage is a beautiful newly refurbished barn situated in the Lakeland Fells. With views of Weatherlamb and Coniston Old Man, The Cottage is the perfect place to relax, take in the views and get away from it all. Located within the small holding of Crooked Birch, Herdwick sheep, pet goats and a few free-range chickens roam around the adjacent fields. With the Cumbrian Way and footpaths located near to the property, enthusiastic walkers can explore the stunning countryside.

The space
The Cottage is a newly converted stable fitted out with brand new high quality furniture and furnishings . Light floods into the front room from two large picture windows which have uninterrupted views of the National Park and mountains.
Off the open plan living area is the comfortable bedroom, newly furnished with a pewter-effect King size bed, oak painted furniture, a pretty feature window and skylight. The ensuite bathroom boasts a large walk-in shower with grip rails and a skylight window. A shower seat is available if required.

The Cottage has its own dedicated outside space with two seating areas; a front patio and the Cottage Garden (a private and enclosed dog-secure space). There is also a separate laundry room and cycle store. The whole house is on one level and easily accessible.

One well-behaved dog is allowed and, due to extra cleaning and laundry costs, there is an extra charge of £7 per night. This charge will be requested once you have booked. We have dog bowls, a dog bed and medium dog crate if required. The Cottage Garden is a secure area for your dog.
