  • "Fabulous well equipped big cottage, well located on the coast with easy access to the village, beach and the mountains."

    Loved the place enabling us to really get away and relax. This well equipped cottage reminded us of trips to see family on the farm, with a fine mix of traditional and modern features. Setting the fire each day to get the hot water going took us back, and intrigued the children but with access to plenty of TV and the internet they were happy and loved the place. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to stay in such a fabulous location.

  • "Amazing farm house on the out skirts of the lakes with views of Scarfell Pike from the garden."

    Perfect base for exploring the western lakes. Can’t wait to book again. Steve and Pam have the perfect holiday home.

  • "VERY misleading info."

    The garden is enclosed but you have to go out the back door, take about 6 steps to a garden gate to the enclosed garden. REALLY inconvenient when you have two dogs. No welcome file with instructions for appliances etc, had to try and figure it all out ourselves which was a bloody nuisance. The living room furniture had been swapped over and the room with the tv had too much in, hardly room for our dogs beds. Not clear that you have to light the flipping wood burning stove every day to get the central heating to work. Who wants to be faffed with that on holiday? Summerhouse., Out the front door, through the gate, over the drive and into another enclosed garden. VERY MISLEADING. Downstairs shower room had NO HEATING! What? Bloody freezing in there, didn't even use it for the loo. Otherwise very nice property but the description needs amending and they need a welcome file with info in.

    It is a beautiful old roomy cottage in a lovely quiet location. We really enjoyed our time there and would definitely go back in the future.

  • "Thank you for a fantastic stay."

    We loved the location as long as we didn't look south! Easy access to the hills. Enclosed garden for the dog. Lovely touches for both us humans and our dog with treats for all of us. Once we had the hang of the multi fuel wood burner that fed the radiators we were toasty. Brilliant stay. We would stay again.

  • "Absolutely beautiful cottage."

    Jan was a wonderful woman and extremely helpful. Very clean and very nice decor, loved the snug so relaxing. Great enclosure for the dogs at the back of the property. Very quiet lane. No through traffic. Beautiful scenery. There is a lake. Horse stables attached but we heard nothing from them. The bath is a great size width depth and length perfect for relaxing in. Plenty of coal and wood for the burners to keep the cottage warm, All in all a wonderful 1st experience of holidaying in a cottage. Will highly recommend and we will definitely be back again. Our 2 dogs absolutely loved it, being only an hour away from lake Windermere and 10-15 minutes drive from a few beaches. Had some happy pooches that where shattered for a few days when we got home. Thank you for a lovely stay and the lovely welcome pack wine went down a treat and the dogs loved there doggy treats.

    2 pubs just down road but one closed down a while ago. Couldn't try the other one as it was on a 10 day isolation due to staff getting covid. Owners of cottage are very nice people, and on arrival left us a nice welcome pack of eggs, biscuits, sweets and wine. In all lovely place to stay.

    Unfortunately the property is up for sale which reflected on the general up keep of the house with TVs having problems & many light bulbs being out with no spares, knowledge about the heating system & waste bins (recycling) would have helped.

  • "The property was listed as being in Egremont however it was several miles from Egremont and difficult to find."

    That was the only negative. Gorgeous farm house that became home almost immediately. Plenty of space and homely kitchen that we rarely moved from. Unobtrusive owner yet there where personal touches like flowers, farm eggs, scrumptious biscuits etc. The farm house was intended as purely a base to enjoy the lakes yet we were all really sad to leave. Would definately stay there again.

The property

Egrermont 3.5 miles.

Nestled down a quiet countryside lane offering tranquillity and a true countryside setting, Petersburgh Farm a wonderful abode for a group of six looking to explore both the coast and countryside of this desirable area of Cumbria.

A 17th century farmhouse displaying many of its traditional features, this classic style cottage offers easy access to the Lake District National Park, alongside many other delights of Cumbria being within close reach.

Begin unwinding in the open-plan living space, with the roaring woodburning stove providing a homely aura to the room as you settle down in your surroundings, encompassed by unique decor.

Surrounding the living area, you can find various stations where you can prepare a lovingly-made meal, with plenty of room for assistance alongside the help of the good range of utensils in the room.

At the end of the day gather around the dining table where you can enjoy your delicious meal amongst the company of your loved ones.

Another relaxing spot can be found in the form of the sitting room, also with a warming woodburning stove, this space provides a great area to cosy up in front of the television with a rewarding beverage in hand, or if you're wishing for a quiet spot to yourself, seek comfort in the snug, with its electric fire offering a sense of comfort as you relax with a good book in hand.

At the end of a fun-filled day, you can find three bedrooms on the first floor in the form of a king-size and two doubles, all adhering to the traditional feel of the property and offering a snug spot to rest your head.

Outside you can find marvellous views to soak in as you slurp on your morning coffee, accompanied by a stable and summerhouse to sit in, as well as a fishing lake with trout for a truly tranquil experience, as well as walking and cycling routes.

The local area makes a great spot for walking, however, further afield you can find excitement in the market town of Egremont, offering all the amenities you could need for a self-catered stay alongside an arts centre and imposing castle to explore, it makes a marvellous day out.

Head to St Bees, offering the only Heritage coastline in Cumbria, it makes a great place for exploring when you’re not diving into adventure in the nearby National Park itself.

With access to Whitehaven and Windermere too, Petersburgh Farm is a wonderful abode to spend your holidays with your loved ones.

About the location


St Bees 2.7 miles; Whitehaven 5.8 miles

The market town of Egremont is settled in the Borough of Copeland, on the westtern edges of the Lake District. This bustling town lies at the foot of Dent Fall, with its make-up much the same as it was around the 13th century. The main street opens out into the market place, with the ruins of the Norman castle at the southern end, just above the river Ehen. There are several churches, a couple of supermarkets, arts centre, shops and eateries. Ennerdale Water, nestled in Cleater is the westernmost lake in the National Park and is perhaps the most peaceful of all the lakes. With no public roads running along its National Trust owned shoreline, it is the set well off the beaten track and is the least visited of all the lakes. The seaside village of St. Bees, now the start of Wainwright’s famous “Coast to Coast” Walk, features a Norman priory and Elizabethan public school, as well as a nine-hole golf course and a host of traditional pubs. St. Bees Head is the only Heritage coastline in Cumbria and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, named after the village it sits next to. Abundant walks are available along the clifftops, as well as strolls across its sandy beach. Whitehaven is further up this beautiful coastline, an elegant Georgian port, nestled between the glistening sea and Lakeland Fells. Discover its wonderful parks and gardens and the Beacon Heritage Centre, where you can learn of the town's vast history. Muncaster Castle is 12 miles away, as is the Eskdale and Ravenglass miniature railway, and just over 15 miles away is Wasdale Head, the start of the climb to the summit of Scaffel Pike, the highest mountain in England. An ideal location for touring the western coast of the Lake District.
