  • "Very cosy and comfortable cottage in fabulous location with wonderful views and walks on the doorstep."

    Being on a working farm with the owner next door was a bonus for us - and the eggs, butter, milk, tea etc provided by the owner for our arrival were most generous and very useful! Very much looking forward to staying at Fellside again.

  • "We had a fantastic time!"

    Linda was very thoughtful with the little touches that made this cosy cottage instantly welcoming and very homely. It was well equipped, in an absolutely beautiful, remote location and it met our needs completely. Although we were not able to open the door to let our dog out by himself we just slipped on his lead and were out on open fells within less than 10 seconds.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Fellside cottage."

    We had a warm greeting on arrival from Linda the owner. The location for us was superb, we like to be far from anyone else. The cottage was warm cosy and had all we needed, very clean, and comfortable beds. We would certainly return to Fellside again.

  • "I was expecting a garden but was fairly disappointed with having an old dog ."

    I knew it was on a working farm but didn't expect to walk straight into a farm yard where greeted by barking dogs each time day or night. I cannot fault the house for cleanliness and warmth ..if anything too warm. The only living space was claustraphobicially tiny that was only just big enough for 2 although still got in each other's way, an equally tiny but well equipped kitchen and an oven that didnt seem to heat up very well taking considerably longer to cook Christmas dinner than I really wanted. The lack of a mop for the high traffic areas meant I had to get on hands and knees to clean the floors. The internet was a very weak signal which came from farmhouse next door and most of the time didn't work and I anticipated there would be no phone signal and was relying on wireless to keep in touch with my family over the festive period but mostly wasn't able...had to drive to top of lane to call out. The owner was very nice and friendly. I know she lived in the ajoining property and could ask for anything but I went away to be away and not pester or be pestered.

    The online advert states there is a garden/patio in the bullet points at the beginning of the advert. The advert then later confirms that there is a Patio Courtyard, not a Garden. The Christmas tree took a bit of extra space but there is plenty of space in the bedrooms. The kitchen is not large but has everything needed normally, however we can see that for Christmas cooking it may be rather cosy! Unfortunately due to the rural location of the cottage it is true that the internet strength and mobile phone signal is quite poor, however we feel the stunning scenery more than makes up for this.

  • "Made full use of, and very much appreciated, the secure bicycle store."

    Would have also been good to know that there was an actual freezer [in the understairs cupboard] in addition to the freezer box in the fridge, as we could have organised our catering slightly differently. Very comfy bed and plenty of space with just 2 of us.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage in a tranquil setting."

    But close enough to the lakes to enjoy days visiting places of interest

The property

Fellside Cottage is a delightful traditional cottage on a working farm in the heart of the Cumbrian countryside, with wide-ranging views over the breathtaking and unspoiled Woodlands Fell.

Ideally located for a couple or family of walkers and cyclists who want to explore the beauties of the spellbinding Lake District, or those wanting the peace and seclusion If you're looking for the peace and seclusion of a country holiday, then this comfortable and very pretty character cottage is ideally located for a couple or family of walkers and cyclists who want to explore the beauties of the spellbinding Lake District. As you enter through the door of Fellside Cottage, you're immediately struck by the cosy cottage ambience of this charming property.

Attached to the original 18th-century farmhouse, the cottage preserves plenty of character features including original beams.

The living area has a feature wooden fireplace with electric wood burner and lovely comfortable seating for 4.

The open plan layout leads to the kitchen and dining area where there's plenty of cottage charm plus every modern convenience.

There's also a downstairs bathroom with bathtub, shower over, wash basin and WC and a utility room housing the washer and tumble dryer.

Upstairs there are two cosy bedrooms, 1 double with a washbasin and beautiful views over the Fells, and one twin bedroom. One of the real features of Fellside Cottage is its fabulous countryside location and what better way to enjoy it than from your own courtyard, with bench seating and colourful flower tubs and views out over the farm to the fells beyond.

There's also off road parking for 2 cars. Fellside Cottage really encourages you to get away from it all, either walking or riding your bike for which secure storage is provided.

For a real challenge, the main Ulverston to Carlisle footpath is just half a mile away and the farm and surrounding countryside are crisscrossed by paths and trails where your only company will be the local flora and fauna. If you feel the need to venture further afield, Fellside Cottage is located on the fells between Coniston Water and the Duddon Estuary.

Windermere is easily accessible and you can spend the day hopping on and off the iconic steamers, allowing you to explore car-free.

And don't miss a trip on the newly restored Victorian Steam Yacht Gondola around Coniston Water where Arthur Ransome set his classic Swallows and Amazons books.

Visit the Lakeland Motor Museum to find out more about the Campbells and their iconic water speed records.

And with some of the best fine dining in Britain, spend your evenings relaxing in a friendly gastropub or restaurant enjoying local specialities like Cumberland sausage! If your idea of heaven is walking and cycling the fells of Britain's favourite country park, then Fellside Cottage is the ideal location for your Lake District holiday at any time of year.
