Otter Tarn Holiday Cottages

Backbarrow 1.5 miles. Perfectly situated in the stunning Lake District National Park, this exclusive group of properties is set in a small, prestigious development set in idyllic countryside on the owner's working livestock farm, near the villages of Backbarrow, Newby Bridge and Cartmel. With woodland views, these luxury cottages have been furnished and equipped with every comfort in mind. Each has been finished to the highest standard with beautiful, hand-crafted fittings throughout and original art work, all with a woodburning stove, underfloor heating and en-suite accommodation to provide a superb base for couples wishing to escape or for families or friends who simply want to spend time together in beautiful surroundings. Each has a private hot tub which has been cleverly set in a dry stone wall, extensive open decking which runs all around each cottage and shared lawns. Just a short walk away is a private lake where guests can wander and admire the scenery, fly fish and possibly catch a glimpse of the otter. Haverthwaite Steam Railway is 6 minutes' drive away, where you can catch the steam train to Lakeside, then catch the Windermere Steamers to Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside. Also younger visitors will love the Aquarium of the Lakes at Lakeside. The pretty, priory village of Cartmel is three miles away and has a fantastic collection of inns, award-winning restaurants and shops, Cartmel Priory and children's playground, and the last weekend of May is the start of the racing season. These very special cottages offer fabulous accommodation all year round and will leave guests wishing they could stay forever.

The property

A magnificent detached cottage with private hot tub at the base of a small natural rock face, extensive open decking and shared lawns, Billy Boo offers a wide variety of attractive amenities.

Featuring a photo of a belted Galloway cow to represent how the property stands closest to Otter Tarn’s where you can watch tractors drive past in the winter months to feed the cows, this property holds a lot of character and charm.

Inside, the contemporary accommodation includes a spacious open plan living area with large windows overlooking the decking area and shared grounds beyond.

Inside the property is an open plan living area with a designer kitchen and a sitting area with a woodburning stove and underfloor heating.

Outside you can find a wonderful decking at the front which offers a fabulous sun- spot for barbecues, alfresco dining, or even sun soaking!

Set at the highest point of the park, Billy Boo presents magnificent views of the park lawns and the maturing rockery ahead, and in the winter months you can even spot Lake Albeit from some of the bedrooms.

This contemporary and stylish cottage is a perfect place to escape to at any time of the year.

About the location

BACKBARROW

Newby Bridge 1 mile; Bowness-on-Windermere 10 miles.

The small village of Backbarrow sits by the banks of the River Leven and the southern tip of Lake Windermere. The famous Haverthwaite Steam Railway runs close by the village between Haverthwaite and Lakeside. Enjoy magnificent views across Windermere and the surrounding fells, or visit the Aquarium of the Lakes, where the naturally themed habitats bring the history of the Lakes vividly to life. Bowness-on-Windermere provides a lovely day out, and the picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Set amidst the charm of the Lake District, close to the fringe of Windermere, this attractive village makes an inspiring choice from which to forage further into a magical heartland of silver lakes, lofty towering peaks and lonely gorse clad moors.
