    “We had a great holiday, the owners were welcoming and very helpful - even after our stay, when we realised we had left an item there.”

    Isobel kindly posted this for us! Great space for the children to explore and for the dogs to exercise.

The property

This welcoming cottage forms part of a wing of an 18th century farmhouse, located on a working livestock farm on the outskirts of Gosforth, just 1.5 miles from Wasdale, Britain's 'favourite view' and 3 miles from beautiful Eskdale in the Lake District.

This comfortable cottage features an open plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and sitting area, while the bedrooms can either be super king-size doubles or twins providing flexibility for guests.

Outside there is a patio area with a hot tub, and the adjacent large paddock is a great place for children to play games, plus there are nature walks throughout the owner's farmland for guests to enjoy.

This cottage enjoys a wonderful setting, in this quiet, beautiful area of West Cumbria.

The high level walking and climbing available from the doorstep is unrivalled, with Scafell amongst the many walks to suit all skill levels.

The area also offers fantastic bike trails, local pubs serving good traditional real ales and food, Muncaster Castle, an 18-hole golf course and a miniature railway.

This cottage is a great base for a memorable holiday at whatever time you visit.
