  • "The cottage had everything we needed and was a perfect base for exploring the western lakes."

    Hi Philip We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and although very bias I totally agree it is a great location to explore the Western Lakes Property Owner

  • "As a whole we found our stay to be enjoyable and comfortable."

    However, for us, there were just a couple of niggling points that I would like to bring to your attention. Firstly, the shower head in the downstairs bathroom is fairly corroded with a constant leak from the shower hose joint. Nothing too serious obviously, but it somewhat spoiled the overall feel of what is a nice bathroom. On the up side, the water pressure for the shower is excellent so it was most enjoyable. Secondly, we were slightly disappointed with the communal area. The way it was portrayed in the advert led us to believe that it would be a place to sit just outside the front of the house. With two children, we didn’t really want to be separated from them whilst we were sitting in the grassed area. Again, nothing serious, but we felt that the wording of the advert could have been a little more accurate. All in all, we found our stay to be comfortable and enjoyable with enough facilities in the house to cater for our needs. The cat was very sweet and an added bonus!

    Hi Philip Thank you for your feedback. Since your visit we have changed the shower head in the bathroom in the cottage. We will also take a look at the property details to see if we can ensure that the communal area information is better explained. Many thanks again. Property Owner

  • "We are originally from the area and can strongly recommend this cottage."

    Superb location off the beaten track, but still close to the beautiful western lakes. Clean, comfortable and so quiet. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful throughout. Thank you for such a relaxing and enjoyable few days

  • "Great location for peace and solitude and off the tourist radar with easy access to the less visited Western lakes."

    Lovely cottage too. A very tiny thing: it would have been good to have had dish washer capsules on hand. Otherwise great place.

  • "We enjoy cooking meals as a way to save money and tailor meals to our needs, and that's one reason we choose to stay in a self-catering cottage."

    With that in mind, here are a few items that would be helpful to have in the kitchen in Tithe Cottage: ice cube trays to make ice for drinks (i.e. gin and tonic); a hand whisk for beating eggs; lids for the skillets (to keep splatters to a minimum.) Additionally, one of the skillets needs replacing, as the non-stick coating is peeling off. A new spatula (turner) would also be helpful, as the one currently there is very worn and quite small. These are simply suggestions that would enhance the kitchen for your guests. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in your lovely cottage!

  • "A lovely cottage ."

    .. very peaceful but with good connections to the northern lakes and Cumbria coast. Ideal for a multi generational holiday. Well equipped with good facilities. Only downside was poor WiFi but to be expected so far off the beaten track. We would stay again.

  • "It should be made clearer that the garden is not directly accessible from the house and is in fact some distance away."

    As the weather was not great this didn't really affect us but would have been very disappointing on sunny days

  • "The cottage was lovely."

    Felt very relaxed and comfortable. Lovely quiet area but handy for walks and for Cockermouth. Sykes as an agency left a lot to be desired. Very unhelpful when covid struck. I would consider booking the cottage again but not through this agency.

  • "Lovely cottage in very rural location."

    Easy access to the North Western lake district. Warm and cosy with good self catering facilities. I would say that some parts of the cottage are in need of update, the sofas are worn and the beds are not comfortable, the double bed especially was like sleeping on a plank of wood. Apart from that it was an enjoyable week.

  • "A surprisingly spacious, characterful and comfortable cottage, in an unspoilt corner of the lakes."

    Very convenient for fabulous walking destinations. Rolf and Anghie were very friendly hosts, and we were greeted with a very thoughtful welcome pack, with fresh daffodils!

The property

Located in the Lake District National Park, in the hamlet of Brandlingill, Tithe Cottage is a generously proportioned 3 bedroomed cottage.

Situated in a courtyard setting, Tithe Cottage (and The Byre which sits adjacent to it) is fully equipped, spacious and provides everything you need for a holiday break.

There is a shared outdoor communal garden space which is easily accessible from the cottage, located close to the stable area.It is set in an orchard area and offers a tranquil space to appreciate the rural peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside.

Please note that the garden area is not directly attached to the holiday cottage. Tithe Cottage is part of a barn conversion offering a cosy but delightful space with all the usual modern amenities you would expect to find in a self-catering cottage. The downstairs area gives guests a separate lounge with a kitchen cum dining area suitable to seat 6.

There is the added facility of a shower and toilet downstairs.

Upstairs, the 3 bedrooms (1 double and 2 twin) are airy and light along with a main family bathroom. The cottage offers a great base to explore the Western Lakes with easy access to Cockermouth and Keswick for all your local amenities, cafes and shopping.

Bassenthwaite Lake, Buttermere, Loweswater , Derwent Water, Ennerdale and Whinlatter Forest are but a short distance away with the beach towns of St Bees and Silloth, a little further afield.

With local wildlife of red squirrels, badgers, deer and birds to appreciate combined with little light pollution offering the star gazer some great night skies, there is plenty on offer! So, if you are after a bit of relaxation and want to simply enjoy the beautiful mountain and lakeland scenery or if you are preferring something more adventurous – bagging some of those Wainwrights or cycling the mountain passes or the freedom of open water swimming, paddle boarding/sailing/canoeing then Tithe Cottage offers a wonderful base to do it all.

About the location


Bassenthwaite Lake 7 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

The small country market town of Cockermouth is situated in the quiet north-western part of the Lake District, a largely undiscovered and unspoilt area, yet only 13 miles from Keswick. The town is famous as the birthplace of both William Wordsworth and Fletcher Christian (of Mutiny on the Bounty fame) and Wordsworth’s Georgian family home, on the main street, is now a popular visitor attraction, owned by the National Trust. Cockermouth offers a good variety of shops, pubs and places to eat, but (of course) the main attraction of the area is the beautiful scenery and excellent walking in the northern lakes – Bassenthwaite Lake, Ennerdale Water and Derwent Water.
