  • "We had a wonderful & relaxing stay at River Bank Cottage."

    Location was perfect for us. Remotely located yet 5 mins away from the main roads allowing us to explore all the parts of The Lake District that we wanted to visit. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean, comfortable & had everything in it that we needed. Little goats in the field right next to us were an added bonus

  • "Great location with lots of prime Lake District locations less than 30 minute drive away."

  • "A very beautiful place to stay at a picturesque spot between the valleys and Lune river."

    The property is well maintained and is easy to approach off the motorway. Spacious property with underfloor heating. Nice sit outs with view of the valley and the river. Great walks around the cottage down the river. Small play area for kids as well. There is noise from the motorways and train track but there is hustling sound of the river as well, so it did not bother us much and very much enjoyed the natural surroundings here. Kevin is a kind host and is easily approachable at al times. Wifi is slow, I understand Kevin is working on it as it has a difficult terrain for the cables to be laid. We thoroughly enjoyed the property for our needs.

  • "The location of Riverbank cottage is simply stunning, yes there’s a little road noise but the beauty of the place far outweighs this and the owner was extremely helpful with local knowledge and allowed us to walk for miles around their farmland."

    I highly recommend this cottage but if I had to find a negative I would say you need to take more cutlery and crockery if you are cooking for a family of four as there is only one item per person so found myself washing up for desert etc but a tiny suggestion in what was otherwise perfect.

  • "The cottage was brilliant, particularly for someone with restricted mobility."

    Cannot fault it at all. The views were splendid and even though the motorway and railway line are close by they really did not distract or disturb. Kevin was on hand to answer any questions. One slight modification or suggestion would be to put a shelf in the wet room for storage of soap bags etc.

  • "Loved this cottage - the photos didn't do it justice."

    it was a lot more spacious inside with magnificent views. We were greeted on arrival by Kevin (just happened to be there when we arrived) Very friendly host, explained about the cottage and area - told us to go wherever we wanted with our dog on his land and pointed out some walks. Recommended the two pubs in the village which didn't disappoint. During the tail end of storm Dennis - the cottage was warm and cosy throughout. Had all the crockery/ utensils you could need during your stay. My son even managed to get out to play football and basket ball in the game area outside - he was very pleased with that. My daughter was more impressed with the wet room area and under floor heating throughout the cottage. The cottage was exceptionally clean. Have already been asked for the details of it from my posts on Facebook . Would definitely recommend again.

  • "Had a long weekend her with a toddler and a dog and it was absolutely fantastic!"

    The cottage had great views of the river, and the goats and their kids were right outside our window. My daughter also loved being so close to the horses and sheep on the farm. The cottage was really cosy and large too. If you need it, the property has wifi and you'll have full phone signal. It's in the perfect location and is easy to get to. There's also easy access to walks and the river. We'll be coming back here!

  • "We enjoyed our time at the cottage, the goats were really fun, but there was no wi-fi, so until the wi-fi is fixed, please make sure people know it is not available, we wouldn't have booked if we didn't think there was going to be no wi-fi."


    Thank you for your feedback. Since your feedback, we have now installed brand new BT WiFi which is working without any problems! We hope to see you again at the cottage in the future! Property Owner

  • "River Bank is a delightful cottage situated on the banks of the river Lune."

    The owners, Kevin and Andrew, are very easy going and welcoming - eager to ensure the holiday is enjoyed to the full. There is a good comfortable atmosphere around the four cottages - ideal for a stress-free break. River Bank cottage has all the amenities, especially for disabled, and has a balcony overlooking the river. The area is very beautiful, quiet and relatively unknown as everyone heads for the Lakes. Although the M6 is close by it does not seem to disturb the setting. River Bank cottage is highly recommended.

    The owners are caring and welcoming and like to drop by and see everything is ok. The Goats are entertaining and we were in time for the lambs being born which was great to see. The setting is nice and peaceful. A most enjoyable and relaxing week.

Brockholes Farm Cottages

Tebay 2 miles. Situated on a rural lane along the banks of the River Lune, which cascades down the valley, and surrounded by the stunning Howgill Fells, are these five Cumbrian holiday cottages, two miles from Tebay and conveniently close to the M6. Set on a family-run livestock farm, these Tebay cottages sit amongst spectacular surroundings, whether you stay close to home and observe the daily activities of the farm, with its resident hens and sheep, or explore this beautiful valley, with its dramatic, ever-changing scenery. Each of these Cumbrian cottages have been lovingly created from old farm buildings and are furnished and decorated to an excellent standard, retaining character and charm. Both come with private outdoor seating areas, along with shared use of a children’s play area, plus the opportunity for walks across the farmland and even fishing on the river. These exceptional cottages are surrounded by an area rich in wildlife and natural beauty, and located close to the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District National Parks, they’re superbly placed for exploring the rolling Dales and the quaint Yorkshire villages of Hawes and Dent, whilst the beautiful Ullswater, the second longest lake in the Lake District, can be found within 40 minutes’ drive. Nestling on the shores of Ullswater are the pretty villages of Pooley Bridge and Glenridding, surrounded by a skyline dominated by Helvellyn, England's third highest mountain. The Ullswater Steamer also cruises down the lake, stopping off at popular points along the way, so if you fancy a more gentle day, then pack a picnic and watch as the inspiring landscape passes you by. Booked together or separately, this group of cottages near Tebay are ideal for your next Cumbrian cottage getaway.

About the location


Kendal 13 miles; Penrith 17 miles; Windermere 19 miles.

The charming old village of Tebay sits near the eastern fringe of the Lake District National Park. The village itself winds its way along the edge of the main thoroughfare and the traditionally whitewashed Cross Keys Inn has been there for 500 years or more. The inn is reputedly haunted by the ghost of the Tebay Witch, Mary Baynes. Along with its better-known neighbours of Kendal, Sedbergh and Appleby-in-Westmorland, the area is surrounded by lovely rolling countryside and beautiful scenery. Nearby Orton has a local pub serving good food, a Post Office/shop, tea rooms and the famous handmade chocolate shop. A lovely village green surrounded by 17th and 18th century cottages adds to its charm and there is a farmers' market in the village square on the second Saturday of every month. Take a short drive and discover the unspoilt lake of Haweswater, or take advantage of the excellent road links to the Lake District, the Eden Valley and the Yorkshire Dales.
