  • "The cottage is very quaint, clean and well decorated throughout."

    The bathroom and kitchen feel very new and are fitted out to a high standard. We loved our stay at Fellside Cottage. An amazing view from the front. The location is perfect for visiting so many areas, it is half way between Keswick and cockermouth. We would definitely recommend and will be back again soon. Thanks to Jane for all her help.

  • "First Class cottage for 2 people with absolutely everything you could need."

    It was cosy and very comfortable. Just what you need for a relaxing break. Jane is an excellent host and the welcome pack was a nice surprise. There is so much to do in this area of The Lakes. Highly recommend Buttermere, Whinlatter forest and the Bassenthwaite railway restaurant. Definitely hope to return.

  • "This is a lovely cosy cottage which has been recently refurbished to a very high standard."

    It is perfect for a couple. The area is ideal for walking the fells and accessing Keswick and Cockermouth. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend it.

  • "Very cosy cottage and well equipped."

    Jane and Andrew the owners were very welcoming. Only a few minutes from the A66 so Cockermouth and Keswick within easy reach. Bassenthwaite Lake only a few minutes away and would recommend a visit to the railway station and the Pheasant Inn. Buttermere was only a short drive and was our favourite. Plenty of walking on your doorstep too. Highly recommended and we hope to return soon.

    Ling Fell is easily accessible from a footpath behind the cottage. Close enough to major road to make other areas easy to get to. Owners Jane and Andrew were friendly and very helpful.

  • "We had a fabulous stay at Fell Cottage."

    It was spotless and provided everything for our needs, especially comfortable lounge furniture and bed, not always found in a 2 person cottage! The tranquility and location met our requirements as we preferred the less crowded lakes. Many thanks to Jane and Andrew for a warm welcome and helpful knowledge. The view from the cottage was spectacular.

  • "We've just returned from a much needed week away at Fellside Cottage."

    We wanted a cosy cottage with a log burner, a bath to soak in and walking routes off the doorstep. A perfect week escaping the rat race to completely slow down to enjoy fresh air and spectacular scenery, even in November! A beautiful cottage in a quiet village with everything we needed. Jane, the owner had left a welcome basket of goodies and a jug of milk in the fridge. Cockermouth and Keswick close by with some lovely shops for rainy days. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be returning. Superb!

    And well placed for exploring the north western Lake District. Jane, the owner and neighbour, was friendly and helpful. The cottage has a number of steepish steps so isn't ideal for people with mobility problems.

    In a lovely quiet location, between the two towns of Cockermouth and Keswick surrounded by beautiful views. Kitchen has everything you need, and new bathroom with a great big bath! The owners are lovely and will help with anything. If you’re tall watch your head, low doorway to kitchen and small door to the bathroom.

The property

Keswick 9.4 miles.

Fellside Cottage is a charming, semi-detached cottage settled in Wythop Mill, Embleton in the Lake District National Park between Keswick and Cockermouth, Cumbria.

Ideal for romantic holidays in the Lake District, this cottage provides off-road parking, beautiful country views, and a woodburning stove to set the scene on your next relaxing getaway.

The ground floor has a well-equipped kitchen where you can prepare hearty suppers after the day's adventures, with seating for two in the dining room or out on your front patio with bistro-style seating overlooking the hills.

Back inside, the sitting room has sumptuous seating to sink into and watch TV, whilst the woodburning stove gently warms the room.

As night falls, head upstairs to the welcoming double bedroom, complete with bedside lamps, contemporary storage, TV and country views, along with a bathroom to freshen up in the walk-in shower or relax in the double ended bath.

There is a direct access on foot from the cottage to the delightful Sale Fell and Ling Fell from where you can admire the views over Bassenthwaite Lake and towards Skiddaw, the fourth highest mountain in England after the Sca Fells and Helvellyn.

The property is also on the Coast to Coast Cycle route.

A short journey west brings you to the market town of Cockermouth where Veeva coffee shop, Aspava Restaurant, The Bitter End pub, and Shills of Cockermouth are just some of the superb eateries on offer, alongside convenience stores and supermarkets.

There's plenty to see in the town, including Castlegate House Gallery showcasing local artists and tours of the National Trust's Wordsworth House and Garden.

Travel east and you are soon in the market town of Keswick, where Derwent Pencil Museum, walks to Castlerigg Stone Circle, and the Theatre By The Lake all await, whilst Derwentwater offers a range of walks, boat cruises, and watersports.

For outdoor adventures, head to Bassenthwaite Lake National Nature Reserve for fishing or Derwentwater Marina for sailing, kayaking, canoeing and paddleboarding, while the surroundings include scenic walks at Mirehouse & Gardens and Dodd Wood.

For a unique setting, dine on a train at Bassenthwaite Lake Station or watch whisky being made at The Lake District Distillery, followed by a pamper at the Armathwaite Hall Spa, a trip to the Lake District Wildlife Park or a round of golf at Cockermouth Golf Club, all within 4 miles of the cottage.

Further afield more challenging hikes await with Skiddaw, Scafell Pike, and Helvellyn all reachable by car, although if you prefer to leave the car behind and not bother with the hassle of parking, there is a bus stop 0.7 miles from the cottage which will let you explore the Lake District by bus.

Fellside Cottage is a superb base for an unforgettable holiday in the Lake District.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
