  • "Great location."

    Very welcoming. Comfortable facilities Cakes on arrival and fresh eggs each morning, delicious. I booked through booking.com which seemed to hamper communication by e mail between myself and Sykes, however phone conversations were always polite and any issues raised were dealt with quickly. I would love to visit again xx

    We had a relaxing six days in a very comfortable cottage with a beautiful outlook.The owners of the cottage made us feel very welcome and provided some delicious cakes at the start of our stay. Plus, we had new laid eggs for breakfast ! An unexpected and kind touch. The general comfort and cleanliness of everything - lovely bed linens and fluffy white towels made us feel very at home and would definitely like to visit Pembroke cottage again.

  • "Beautiful cottage on a delightful working farm."

    The living space was upstairs, offering fantastic views across the Lake district. The cottage was well decorated and well appointed too, although a little chilly at night with the storage heaters. However, lots of bedding was supplied which just made it all the more cosy. Would really recommend this clean let - ample parking and easy to find too. Owners seemed very friendly, all in all, a fantastic week was had cycling and hiking in the local area.

The property

Bassenthwaite 2 miles.

This is a lovely semi-detached cottage on a working livestock farm close to the village of Bassenthwaite in the Lake District.

This charming cottage is perfect for a small family or friends wishing to explore this beautiful part of the country.

The cottage is accessed through the farm yard and once through the front door there is a small hall.

From the hall there are four steps leading down to the lower ground floor where you will find two comfortable bedrooms, one double and one twin (this bed can be zip/link to one super king-size double on request).

Back up to the hallway where there is the family bathroom and then a further seven steps up to the open plan living area with lovely views.

The kitchen is well-equipped and has a dining area where you can eat super meals prepared in the kitchen and then relax in the sitting area, enjoying a refreshing drink whilst planning your activities for the days ahead.

Outside the cottage there is a shared garden where you can sit and enjoy the tranquillity of the beautiful rural location.

Being surrounded by mesmerising countryside, there are plenty of paths and bridleways to explore, and red squirrels can often be seen from the cottage.

The cottage is also close to Mire House, Dodd Wood and Bassenthwaite Lake with plenty of walking and mountain biking available.

A short drive away is the town of Keswick where there is a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, and Hope Park, situated on the shores of Derwentwater, has a lovely pitch-and-putt course.

There are many trips up the lake and you can also explore the Cumbrian coastline, Hadrian’s Wall and Carlisle.

About the location


Keswick 8 miles; Cockermouth 9 miles.

An attractive village in the Northern Lakes, Bassenthwaite lies just a short distance to the north east of Bassenthwaite Lake, and retains its traditional rural feel, with a stream flowing gently on the outskirts, whitewashed Lakeland cottages, a pleasant vllage green and a real ale inn full of character! Bassenthwaite Lake itself, while boasting gentler scenery than others in the region, is still one of the most picturesque places in England. Places of interest nearby include Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the Lake with small open-air theatre (reputedly frequented by poets such as Tennyson and Wordsworth), LAke District Wildlife Park, and Dodd Wood. Most of the attractions of the Lake District are within easy reach and the quieter Northern Fells are almost on the doorstep. The nearby towns of Cockermouth and Keswick, both have weekly markets and offer a good range of amenities. The scenery of the Yorkshire Dales is within touring distance, as is the city of Carlisle and Hadrians Wall country.
