  • "We live in Cornwall and have been visiting the Lake District for many years (now in our mid 60's we calculate around 25 trips) and Wythebank is by far the best appointed cottage that we have stayed in."

    All our needs were catered for, right down to a doorstep supply of seasoned wood for the log burners. The property if warm and cosy, the three bedrooms are large with very comfortable bedding, the kitchen diner is very well appointed and equipped and the tiled flooring ideal for wet wellies and dogs. The garden is fenced and gated (secure enough to contain our two very inquisitive Labradors) which is a real benefit for those late night/early morning toilet trips......... David and Carol have really gone the extra mile to make this cottage into a perfect base for their guests - fabulous....... Garth

    Thank you very much for that glowing feedback. It means a lot. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage in a stunning location."

    Comfy and cosy with everything we needed for our stay. Perfect location for walking from the cottage every day and a pub in easy walking distance so no need to use the car once there. Lovely peaceful setting with an abundance of wildlife you can enjoy from the cottage. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a holiday here - this was our second stay at Wythebank and we look forward to staying again.

    Thank you very much for your kind comments. We are delighted that you had a great time. Glad the wildlife performed for you! Property Owner

  • "Wythebank was very comfortable, clean, and in a beautiful location."

    The internet even though warned it had a weak signal worked pretty well in the rooms with good proximity to the hub! It’s truly a lovely cottage making a great base overall. Loved the piano too… 2 things though: it would be good to have a Welcome Pack provided with basic items on arrival as the nearest shop is quite a drive - we were fine as we brought lots of provisions! And the other thing is the road (Hodge Close) which runs for about 2 miles up to Wythebank, it’s pretty scary, especially if a car is coming in the opposite direction not near a passing place! That said, Wythebank is well-worth negotiating this road too, because once you get there the charming cottage makes for a lovely break! Good for our dogs too with an enclosed garden and spoilt for choice with plentiful walks through the most breathtaking scenery in all directions on your doorstep - 4.5 Stars and 5-Stars if a Welcome Pack was provided! Thank you to the owners as we hope to be back soon…

    Thank you for your kind comments, we are pleased that you had an enjoyable stay. We take all comments on board. We do provide essential items that are easy to forget, like tea, coffee and sugar, salt and pepper, soap and shower gel. We trust that these were there when you arrived. Please let us know if they were not so that we can address that. We’re glad that the drive up the road, and the reversing, was worth it. We think it is quite a unique place. We hope to welcome you back sometime in the future. Property Owner

    We love the location, that the cottage is warm, cosy and spacious and that there are two bathrooms with great showers and loads of hot water. We also loved the utility room where we could put all our dog food and hang up all our walking gear. The only negative is that some of the kitchen equipment could do with replacing

  • "A lovely cottage in an incredibly tranquil setting, with walks on the doorstep."

    Spotlessly presented. A few small issues - For very understandable reasons the internet isn't the quickest, so if like me, you work whilst on holiday, this might be a little bit of an issue. The downstairs bathroom is a bit of a squeeze between the sink and the shower cabinet. All the kitchen knives in the knife block were blunt and need to be replaced. That said these are very minor issues and I would definitely stay here again.

The property

A heavenly cottage in a totally secluded setting.

Full of character, this traditional Lakeland property offers 21st luxury in the beautiful Tilberthwaite Valley.

Situated between Langdale and Coniston, some of the finest Lake District pubs and restaurants are on the doorstep, making Wythebank perfect for a family celebration or extra special holiday. The cottage is located at the end of a single tracked, tarmacked country lane, totally secluded and with ample private parking.

Inside are two welcoming sitting rooms, the first a cosy snug and the second a larger space with superb views.

Both have wood burning stoves and plenty of room to sit and relax.

There is even a piano for the musically minded.

The kitchen is magnificent and equipped with everything the cooks could wish for; a bright and airy dining area is ideal for shared meal and chatting over coffee or a glass of wine.

The handy utility room and shower room complete the tour of the ground floor. Three fabulous bedrooms, with vaulted ceilings are on the first floor.

A double, a king size and one super king size which can be made up as a twin on request.

The generous bathroom comes with P-shaped bath with shower over.

Outside there are breath-taking views in every direction, a lovely garden and plenty of place to sit and contemplate the glorious of the surrounding.

The icing on the cake is that up to two pets are welcome to come along and enjoy the seclusion and country walks.

Wythebank is an exceptional property for a very lucky group or family.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Grasmere 4.4 miles; Windermere 4.7 miles; Keswick 16.7 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
