    Cosy, well equipped cottage in a very quiet location. The cottage is situated in a small hamlet of just a few beautiful cottages, some dating from the 17th century. We were blessed with good weather for most of the week and it was lovely to hear a cuckoo calling for long periods everyday. This cottage adjoins John Peels cottage and a photograph c1955 in Barn Roost shows it to be a barn/outbuilding then, so it is a very effective conversion.

    Cosy, well equipped cottage in a very quiet location. The cottage is situated in a small hamlet of just a few beautiful cottages, some dating from the 17th century. We were blessed with good weather for most of the week and it was lovely to hear a cuckoo calling for long periods everyday. This cottage adjoins John Peels cottage and a photograph c1955 in Barn Roost shows it to be a barn/outbuilding then, so it is a very effective conversion. There are low roof beams and windows in the upstairs rooms and the small cottage garden at the rear is secure for dogs and children. For provisions we shopped at a small COOP in Keswick and Sainsbury’s in Cockermouth, both only approximately 10 miles away. ( If you don’t have cash for the car parks then the machines accept card payments).

About the location

IREBY

Bassenthwaite 5 miles; Keswick 12 miles.

Ireby nestles in the peaceful fells of the northern Lake District, in the beautiful area to the north of Keswick known as 'Back of Skiddaw'. Once a thriving market town, with the market cross believed to date back to 1200, Ireby is now a truly unspoilt, peaceful fell village. The peaks of Great Calva and Knott look down on the village and the nearby Aughertree Fell was the site of a Bronze Age farm and the remains of a pre-Roman road are still in evidence, a unique and most complete settlement from the Iron Age period. Nearby 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), Trotters Farm, 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.
