  • "Spotless place."

    Great place to stay, clean and comfortable with most amenities. Nice and quiet with little or no noise from the owners next door to the property. Owners were there if needed but were not at all intrusive. We will be returning next year The welcome pack was a nice touch (cake, milk, eggs & jam). Thanks Ricky & Fiona.

  • "I travel a lot and very often find that the photos of the property no way match with the reality."

    Bramblewood Cottage is actually better than the photographs! It is such a beautiful space - a wonderfully spacious kitchen, a comfortable sitting room with TV that has every channel you could wish, and a good bed. The shower is powerful. I was really delighted with the cottage and thoroughly enjoyed my stay there.

  • "We had a lovely time here."

    The cottage was spotless and very comfortable - the owners have thought of everything you could need and they're very welcoming and friendly and on hand if you need anything. The welcome gifts - eggs, milk, cake, tea/coffee were a lovely touch We loved the fact that it was in a quiet area but there's lots of places to visit nearby. This part of the lakes is quieter than the main areas but very picturesque with lots to do. We enjoyed Maryport, Keswick, Silloth, Carlisle and Whitehaven. We'll definitely return as there's so much more that we want to see and do. The friendly sheep and hens made our stay! Thank you. Jeanette and Ian

    The location is perfect to lay back and recharge the batteries, Ric & Fi are the perfect hosts and make you feel like one of the family. You can explore anywhere in the lakes within an hours travel and then return to be entertained by the free ranging an friendly chickens. Simply the best, cleanest and well kitted out holiday let that we have stayed at.

  • "Bramblewood Cottage is a perfect place for a peaceful, relaxing holiday."

    It is an extremely comfortable cottage. It is well equipped and immaculately clean. Parking right next to the door, an amazing kitchen with a dishwasher and a washing machine and a lovely little garden with wonderful views, where you can sit and watch the chickens with a cuppa! The hosts are very friendly and the welcome pack of jam, milk, eggs and cake was very much appreciated. It is a little off the beaten track and not in the main touristy areas, which suited us down to the ground but Windermere, Ambleside etc are all easily accessible in less than an hour. A perfect place to stay and definitely recommended.

    It's so peaceful, spacious, clean and comfortable.The towels are supersoft and there are plenty of books and games for quiet nights in. All around there are fields and flower filled lanes with plenty of quiet walks. We were surrounded by birdsong and the clucking of the hens that scratched in the yard.The welcome cakes and home made preserves were delicious and typical of the kindness shown by Fiona and Rick.

This idyllic location is quiet and unspoilt, with stunning views of the surrounding fields and trees.

The cottage is set in an old orchard with stunning blossom and an abundance of apples, plums, cherries and pears. In the late winter and spring, a carpet of snowdrops and spring flowers light up the grass surrounding the cottage. Free range chickens wander past the cottage and free range eggs are left as a welcome gift when the hens are laying.

At certain points of the year, Lambs and calves can be seen in the surrounding fields. A wealth of wildlife can be enjoyed including a range of gardens birds, local moorhens, rabbits, hares, hedgehogs and if you’re very lucky, a red squirrel!.

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.
