  • "Waterside was absolutely perfect for us, with brilliant walks from the house, or just a short drive."

    The house just about had everything we needed, and more, made good use of the garage for the bikes too, although we did more walking than cycling, we did manage a brilliant ride up to wasdale head for a cup of tea. Just to watch the tide coming in and out, and all the wading birds was awesome. An added bonus was the Xmas fare in the village hall, coffee and cake was really nice, as was the locals, who made us really welcome

  • "What a marvellous stay at Waterside!"

    The owners have thought of everything and made the accommodation very comfortable and welcoming. The views across the estuary from the panoramic windows downstairs and the bay windows in the master bedroom are amazing: it was very therapeutic to watch the tide moving in and out. Sarah and John's excellent communication and provision of little touches (such as everything needed to start the holiday straight away) were much appreciated. We will be back for another stay sometime in 2024! Thank you!

    Dear David, your lovely feedback is very much appreciated - thank you. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and that you are planning to return and look forward to welcoming you again. All the best, Sarah and John Property Owner

  • "One of the best holiday accommodation we have ever had."

    Exactly as described, beautiful property, fully equipped with everything you might need and amazing views. Owners replied quickly to any queries. Downstairs bedroom perfect for our teenagers that might want to stay up a bit later and open plan lounge/kitchen meant we were all together as a family while cooking and eating. Ravenglass is gorgeous with plenty of walks. We enjoyed a trip on the ratty and used the train to visit St Bees, Seascale for fish and chips, and Whitehaven and had a drive in to Keswick so great location. We would absolutely stay at this property again if we were to return to the area.

    Dear Melanie - wow, thank you so much for your lovely feedback which is very much appreciated and has put a spring in our step. So glad you enjoyed your holiday and we would be delighted to welcome you all back in the future. Best wishes Sarah and John Property Owner

    Our weather during the week was a little unpredictable but with the ever changing views out of the windows we really didn't mind staying indoors sometimes, it was a bit chilly a couple of nights which gave us a great excuse to light the fire,a novelty for us! Ravenglass itself is a lovely little village and we enjoyed eating and drinking in each of the inns/pubs.We also sampled the excellent ice-cream. All in all we had a lovely time and would recommend a stay in Waterside to anyone thinking about heading that way.

    We were particularly impressed with the master suite, amazing. "Waterside" is a peaceful, relaxing and very comfy house to stay in. The views from the picture windows are amazing. All rooms are light and bright and look out onto the estuary where the beautiful panoramic scene is constantly changing.

    There is also a good restaurant opposite the cottage and the Bryer Cafe is excellent. Ravenglass is a jewel of a town/village in Cumbria with walks straight from the door. The views from the windows are memorable, especially first and last light. The cottage has good heating complimented by a fabulous logburner for those cosy nights in. I have only awarded Waterside cottage four stars as there is room for improvement eg:- I would change the latch on the door of the master bedroom as it's very noisy, this easily wakes up a light sleeper. I would change the toilets as I didn't like how they flushed, the toilet bowl fills up with water displaying it's contents before emptying. If a safety fence was fitted to the roof of the downstairs bedroom it would make an excellent sun terrace. Minor points I know but as the cottage commands a premium price I feel it just falls short of five stars. ****Having said all that, we would not hesitate in booking it again.**** We have been visiting the Lakes twice a year for more than twenty years and have only returned to one property (Seaside cottage at Coulderton), so Waterside cottage is on a short list of just two cottages that we would book again. Thank you Sarah and John for providing such a delightful holiday cottage in a superb location, it was clean, quiet and very comfortable. Mike & Marion

The property

Holmrook 3.1 miles.

Nestled in picturesque Ravenglass, the only coastal village within the Lake District National Park, with panoramic views over the estuary at the confluence of 3 rivers, Waterside provides a comfortable and stylish retreat from which to explore the beautiful local coast and countryside or simply savour the views from within and soak up every sunset.

A former boat house and sail loft on the site of a Roman quay and warehouse, Waterside offers a unique opportunity to enjoy a holiday with family or friends literally at the water’s edge.

Upon arrival, park in your allocated parking space, round the corner and climb up a couple of steps to reach your front door and make your way into your new home from home to be charmed by the thoughtfully laid-out open-plan, cosy living space, traditionally decorated with exposed beams and a rustic woodburning stove.

Perch at the breakfast bar with a glass of wine as the designated chef makes use of the fantastic range of amenities provided in the kitchen to prepare a hearty meal before gathering together to recount the day’s adventures at the dining table as you indulge.

Settle down for the evening in a sumptuous spot on the sofa, flicking on the Smart TV with a Sky TV Q box to watch your favourite movie as the room is gently warmed with the glow of the woodburning stove.

Escape the excitement and head upstairs to pour in the bubbles and soak your muscles in the family bathroom, or opt for a quick rinse by making use of the en-suite shower room. When sleep calls, retire to one of the three well-presented bedrooms to rest your head, with the choice between a king-size, a small double and a twin, providing flexible sleeping arrangements for a variety of party makeups. In the morning, enjoy a leisurely wake-up maybe enjoying a coffee taking in the estuary views across to Drigg Dunes Nature Reserve from your bed or step outside to take a seat at the patio table.

Stroll from your front door to discover the remains of the Ravenglass Roman Bath House, established in 130 AD, from which the Hadrian’s Wall cycle track starts.

Catch a hawk flying display at Muncaster Castle, or wander along the banks of the estuary and finish with a Ravenglass ice cream taking in the varied sights and sounds of marine bird life on the waterfront green.

For those seeking adventure, embark upon one of the many mountain bike, road bike or walking routes departing from your front door.

Alternatively, if water is your thing with 3 rivers meeting in the estuary there is wide scope for paddle boarders, canoeists or kayakers.

About the location

RAVENGLASS

  • Eskdale 4 miles
  • Wasdale Head 6 miles

Ravenglass is a small village on the west coast of Cumbria, which made its living from fishing, and in the 18th Century the harbour was also used for smuggling tobacco and other contraband from the Isle of Man. A popular attraction of western Lakeland, the famous Ravenglass to Eskdale Railway, a narrow gauge steam railway known as "L’al Ratty" runs daily from the station through some of the finest and most scenic country in Britain. Just minutes from Ravenglass and easily accessible by a new cycle track is Muncaster Castle, with magnificent gardens and views up to Scafell Pike, and home of the World Owl Trust. This great location boasts a skyline dominated by towering peaks including Scafell - England's highest peak, whilst the nearby stunning valleys of Eskdale, Wasdale and Dunnerdale provide breathtaking scenery to be enjoyed throughout the year. With beautiful Wastwater - the deepest lake in the country, and St Olaf's - one of the smallest churches in England amongst the many landmarks in this beautiful area, this stunning location will have visitors returning time and time again.

Note: On the very rare occasion of extreme and unpredictable weather there may be a need for extra safety measures to be taken at the cottage, - essential use of the electric window shutters (internally operated) during high tides and storms will be explained by the owner prior to arrival.

Note: As Waterside was a former boathouse dating back to the 18th Century it does not have standard door heights, please be mindful going between rooms and in particular the doorway to the main bedroom upstairs.
