  • "The cottage was excellent, had everything (and more) needed for our short break in the Lakes and great central location for exploring."

    My only recommendation to improve above a 10 out of 10 would be black out blinds/curtains in the bedrooms, we had very early starts with the children waking as soon as the light came up at approx 4am/5am

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay. I am looking into black out window coverings. This sort of feedback is very helpful. Property Owner

  • "Very nice cottage, remote location but nice walks from your doorstep, not too far from Keswick if you wish to pop in for a morning or afternoon."

    All the facilities at the cottage are more than you need. The mattress in the travel cot is really firm so you may wish to take a mattress for your little one or a padded sheet.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback and hope you will come back to Mosedale soon. Property Owner

  • "Lovely, clean and comfortable cottage in tranquil and remote location, 30 mins from the Central Lakes."

    Walking, rivers and a Tarn on your doorstep and a pub 30 mins walk away with a good menu.

    Many thanks for your feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "We had a great half term holiday with friends in the cottage next door."

    Perfect location for exploring the lakes. Great walks direct from the location and an easy walk to the local pub. We’d love to go back again. Highly recommended.

  • "A lovely cottage in a beautiful location."

    We loved the walk up to Bowscale Tarn, and also climbed up to Carrock Fell straight from the cottage three times, following different routes each time. We found the mattress on the bed in the master bedroom not very comfortable, but the zip and link bed in the second bedroom was luckily much better. The cottage was quite cold when we arrived and no logs were provided, so I’d recommend to take a small supply of logs and kindling for the first evening. Once the storage heaters were warm by the second day it was very warm and we didn’t need to light the fire at all. The shower was lovely and the kitchen very well equipped. It was lovely to sit on the patio in the evening sunshine.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. The owner would like to apologise about the bed in the master bedroom. This was due to a loose bolt which has now been fixed, a topper has also been added for comfort. We are pleased you had a nice stay and we hope to welcome you back again soon! Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed a fabulous week in this lovely cottage."

    Mosedale is a lovely, quiet unspoilt corner of the lakes with an abundance of varied walking from the door. The car parking area is spacious and both front and rear garden are dog secure. We particularly enjoyed the Herdwick sheep being herded past the cottage each morning- a delight! We will return!

    Tonnes of hot water once we found the switch to turn it on! Couldn't fault anything and had a wonderful time exploring, hiking and swimming. Honister slate mine activities great for 13 year old! Can't wait to return.

    Fell walking and tarn swimming from the door. Segway riding and Llama Trekking adding to the excitement. Loved the sheep!

    The tarn and Carroch edge (really steep descent!) were good walks from here. We couldn't swim in the river because of the storm but next time! Thank you!

    It’s spacious, the kitchen is well equipped and the main bedroom is just stunning. I think it would be a good idea to provide fire making materials for the first night.

  • "This cottage is gorgeous- views of the fells from every window, really comfortable beds, all the essentials you need in the kitchen, really helpful maps and suggested walks."

    ...plenty that go right from the front door (Bowscale tarn- a must for wild swimming especially if the weather is hot- nice water temperature end of July for us), swimming pool in the river caldew, brrrrr!, Carrock fell etc etc) but travelling to other close bits e.g. Helvellyn, Ullswater, Keswick, Derwent water really easy too. Cannot recommend more strongly!

Situated in a quiet remote corner of the Lake District National Park is this exceptional farmhouse cottage, offering an idyllic base for a rural family getaway. One Town End welcomes guests into a peaceful retreat, surrounded by scenes of imposing hills and luscious countryside, starting with a lovely enclosed front patio where you can take in the quiet settings either way a morning coffee or evening tipple.

Kick back and relax for an evening inside, enjoying the unique interior filled with character through oak beams and exposed stone walls in the snug sitting room, a lovely spot to curl up with a good book in front of the woodburning stove, or delight in a family film night. Resting behind is an amply-equipped kitchen/diner, filled with a range of self-catering essentials, as well as a sociable dining table where meals can be enjoyed together.

Continuing to impress is the ground-floor cloakroom, benefiting from a basin, WC and a washing machine.

Retreat to the first floor to unpack in one of the beautiful bedrooms, comprising a king-size, another king-size with zip/link features, and a further twin, all with ample storage and access to the shared bathroom for a luxurious bubble bath or brisk shower.

A favourite walk from the doorstep is to Bowscale Tarn, immortalised by William Wordsworth.

There is an excellent farm shop at Cocklakes and also nearby is a pub (the Mill Inn) in Mungrisdale.More extensive local amenities await at Hesket Newmarket, a welcoming village which boasts a fantastic village shop where you can stock up on food, and a traditional Cumbrian pub with a great choice of ales and pub grub, alternatively, the nearby village of Threlkeld has an even wider range of amenities to keep you busy and well fed throughout your stay.

Explore the exciting market town of Keswick, home to the Derwent Pencil Museum, Theatre by the Lake, Keswick Museum, and Puzzling Place optical illusion experience, whilst the calming Derwentwater lake rests close by, where you can hop on a romantic boat cruise along sparkling waters or try your luck at watersports.

Discover popular Lake District attractions in the area such as the award-winning Aquarium of the Lakes, Penrith town centre, Hadrian's Wall, Ullswater lake and the Eden Valley, or put on your walking boots and delight in one of the challenging walking trails at Castlerigg Stone Circle, Keswick Railway Path, and the Cumbrian Way.

Why not visit the Cumbrian capital city of Carlisle for a fun-filled day of history at the ancient castle and selection of museums, alternatively, find even more adventurous fun at the Yorkshire Dales National Park further afield.
