  • "This was a comfortable and well equipped cottage and the hot tub was a blessing after a day of walking, with beautiful views of the Fell."

    The location was stunning although the road to get there was interesting. Be aware when taking your dog that there is not enclosed area so be aware that there are sheep wondering free by the property. The garden area was not as the photo so a little surprised.

  • "Absolutely stunning location and cottage."

    The cottage is fully equiped with everything you could possibly need. The hot tub is an added bonus which we took full advantage of in the evenings, it is beautiful seeing all the animals roaming too. I would highly recommend this property it is quite central to most locations, we tried the local pub that is recommended in the welcome book and couldn’t agree more, had a lovely meal in the three shires.

    Thank you, glad you had a nice stay Property Owner

  • "The cottage is in a quiet position next to the farm on a well maintained road near footpaths."

    It is comfortable, charming and pretty with every modern facility including new bathroom, kitchen and efficient heating. Good wifi and Freeview TV. Spacious bedroom with lots of hanging and drawer space. Although the welcome folder had all the basic info with emergency phone numbers etc it was very untidy and should be refreshed. The walking maps were unreadable. 4 adults may find the cottage a bit of a squeeze - the second bedroom has a very low sloping ceiling and the layout of the main room, although spacious, does not leave much room for the dining table. It is perfect for couples and families with children.

    We arrived to a warm, clean, and welcoming cottage with a fire ready to be lit. The cottage was great, it had loads of amenities, and we very much enjoyed the hot tub. The local area is full of walks right from the doorstep and you're only a short distance from Coniston where there are shops and pubs. Would definitely recommend, we had a fantastic time, thank you!

    It’s been our first holiday away from the coast with our sons aged 11 and 14 and it didn’t disappoint. The cottage is so comfortable and very well equipped and the hot tub was very welcome particularly for our youngest son who loved it after a day exploring the beautiful area and amazing caves that all start right from the doorstep. Wi-Fi is temperamental and we had no phone signal but that isn’t always a bad thing when on holiday!

    You can easily park your car on arrival and not have to use it until you leave! There are so many stunning walks and cycle routes in all directions from the cottage doorstep. The hot tub is the game changer for us, it’s so nice to be able to ease the aches after a long hike on the fells. Ordering an online shopping delivery (we use sainsbury) to arrive when we first get there is a bonus. We’ve loved our annual week here and booked for 2024. Our only request for changes…. Maybe update the televisions as current formats are not really user friendly.

  • "The location of the property is amazing and the cottage itself is beautiful , spotlessly clean and with excellent facilities."

    The garage pictured is now used for storage so parking for a second car might be an issue. Also worth knowing, the hot tub is at the rear of the property and there is no rear door so you have to go around the front which is on a footpath so in the interests of modesty and warmth a robe would be a good idea. There was no welcome pack ( the folder said due to covid ? ) not even salt and pepper so make sure to take essentials .

    Thank you for the review, sorry the salt and black pepper grinders were empty we have re- filled and put back in the kitchen cupboard. We leave a starter pack for the multi fuel stove, cleaning products , cloth tea-towel etc and a welcome folder. We find most guests prefer to park in front of the cottage with any extra cars at the side of the cottage but will review if guests prefer the garage its just a little awkward to reverse into.

  • "This was a perfect cottage for our needs."

    Brilliant walks and views around the area. The hot tub was a total luxury after a long day out. All the communication and facilities worked perfectly. There is a great pub in Little Langdale which is about 45 mins walk away and the Landlady was very friendly and attentive. Great for dogs, our Cockapoo loved it and the farms dog ‘Mouse’ was very sociable. The whole cottage was well laid out, presentable and very comfortable. Brilliant place and right at the foot of Weatherlam which is easily accessed via the road and car park. We had views all the way to the coast from the summit. There is a superb walk to Blae Tarn via fell foot farm from the cottage which you can then take to Great Langdale, the Sticklebarn National Trust pub (Tea and Cake). Go along the Cumbria way towards Elterwater and back through the woods to Little Langdale then across the River Brathay to Tilberthwaite. 11 odd miles and stunning scenery.

    The hot tub (not shown on photos on the listing) was excellent, clean and in good working order. The only downside of the cottage is that the WiFi is very temperamental (often not working at all) which meant we had trouble planning things to do and we had to cancel some work-related meetings (what a shame!). As an additional word of warning for anyone considering bringing work with them, there is no 4G nor phone signal in the cottage itself either. Everything else with the cottage was great: with comfy beds, and plenty of crockery, cutlery and utensils for cooking.

    Thank you for the review, yes WI FI is slow in the valley, Stephen Property Owner

    You stated the cottage was dog friendly but your information manual requested the dog to sleep downstairs for r own comfort. To separate Bertie at night from us would have coursed a very disturbed night. We brought r own covers for the bed and sofas. We could tell you had redecorated and undertook replacing the bathroom suite, which l thought was to modern for the lovely little cottage ( but this is a very minor thing plus very personal to individuals taste) The main bedroom suite was alovely colour , one problem unable to use the dressing tables mirror because my hair dryers lead did not reach and the mirror was screwed down. The colour throughout the cottage was cream, it may have been a nice idea to have selected a more suitable colour for the main bedroom. None of the above hindered r amazing holiday. Loved the log burner and hot tub. The sofas were ideal to snuggle down at night after a long day hiking.

    Thank you for the feedback , We are pleased you enjoyed your stay , yes the decor is neutral and the bathroom is new as shown on the photos. Property Owner

    Such a warm, cosy property and much bigger than it looks too. Fantastic location - isolated enough to get away from everything but close enough to civilisation if you want it! Amazing views and scenery, constantly changing in the different weather conditions. So many paths to discover right on the doorstep. We stayed over Xmas and arrived to find a tree up and decorated, which was so lovely and welcoming. An absolute treat to have access to a hot tub in the middle of the fells! A great way to start and/or end the day; we were in there most mornings before walking, and on return; stargazing at night, feeling smug in the rain, and at times icy sleet! We will 100% be back. We actually miss it already. Thank you so much

    The cottage is great, and the views from the hot tub (not pictured online) are absolutely stunning. It was the perfect way to unwind after a long day out. The location of the cottage is amazing, with loads of things to see and do near by, and great walks from the doorstep. I must admit I noticed a slightly odd taste to the water and so bought bottled water. My partner initially drank the tap water and felt a bit unwell afterwards. I don't believe it's a mains supply, so perhaps should be advertised as 'not for drinking'. My only other criticism is that there wasn't enough toilet roll, soap, or kitchen roll, to last a week, so we had to buy our own. This was not the end of the world, but I've never had to do that before in a holiday cottage, and it does seem a bit of a shame when you've paid so much money to stay. In any event, neither issue really affected our stay, and we would definitely go back.

    Normally I never like to go back to the same place however there is absolutely nothing out there (Inc other websites) that comes close to matching Tilberthwaite Cottage. It’s a culmination of the cottage, it’s remote and beautiful location and the amount of stunning walks/hikes on offer from the doorstep. Recommend a visit to Yew Tree Farm round the corner which sells renowned meat produce reared on the farm (Heritage Meats), I’ve never tasted steak as good as that! We also used an app called footpath route planner which helped us to discover walks we never knew existed. Starting and finishing every day in the hot tub with its resident sheep and awesome backdrop is so memorable.

    The bedrooms and bathroom work well. The facilities are generally good. Despite repeated requests to fix it, the wifi did not work all week. It is only a signal booster from the farmhouse anyway and not a proper wifi network so the listing should be amended to reflect that. Because it is a farm, there are a lot of flies. It would have been useful to have a fly swat. The farmer could be a bit noisy very early or late when returning from the pub. He was our main contact about the cottage but seemed too busy or uninterested to sort the only concern we raised.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback for your stay. I can confirm that the WiFi providers are fixing it but as the property is in a rural location, the WiFi connection will not be as strong as in the city. Property Owner

The property

This Rural location is set in the foothills of beautiful Lakeland mountains, near the National Trust's Tarn Hows and in peaceful countryside, Tilberthwaite Farm Cottage is the prime location for exploring the lake district.

This cosy getaway welcomes a family holiday or a lovely break for a group of friends looking to explore all the area has to offer.

Head straight into the sitting room and get toasty by the fire on a cold winter's night, later moving across to the dining area for a hearty meal cooked up in the kitchen.

Climb the stairs, and from the window on the landing you can see right across luscious green farmland over to Wetherlam, the most northerly of the Coniston Fells.

You have a master bedroom occupying a king-size double bed and lovely glimpses over the farmyard and the valley, the perfect scene to wake up to each morning when you draw open the curtains.

Next, the twin room is ideal for those travelling with kids and the family bathroom offers a deep-soaking bathtub with a shower over.

To the rear of the property there is a seating area perfect to sit with a drink watching the traditional rare breed Hardwick sheep on the lake district fells while you ooze in the natural ambiance all around you.

Make the most of the glorious scenery and explore the area on foot or by bike, there are some fabulous routes to take right on the doorstep such as the famous Hodge Close and Cathedral Quarry where you can stop off for a drink at the Three Shires Pub in Little Langdale.

Tarn Hows is a lovely circular walk to be taken at whatever pace you fancy, with ever-changing views season-to-season and spots for picnicking with your family and friends.

Coniston is a charming village close by with traditional pubs and a few handy shops, dominated by The Old Man of Coniston, which rises dramatically behind stone-built houses.

It beckons walkers and climbers, as well as those looking to get out on Coniston Water, one of the most beautiful areas of the Lake District.

You are in a wonderful location for touring the ancient Grizedale Forest, Lake Windermere and the delightful town of Ambleside, a superb getaway not to be missed!

For watersports enthusiasts, the quiet lake is ideal for dinghy sailing and canoeing, whilst the less active can enjoy a leisure cruise on the beautiful steam yacht 'Gondola’, or visit Brantwood, the former home of John Ruskin. Nearby attractions include the award-winning village of Hawkshead, home of the Beatrix Potter Gallery, Tarn Hows, one of the most visited beauty spots in the country and Esthwaite Water, famous for its fishing. A first class holiday location at any time of the year.
