Description

Peacefully located and surrounded by stunning scenery with spectacular views, these delightful cottages have been carefully converted from the barns of a former farm steading. In an AONB, the holiday properties are two in a little group of four, located between Torpenhow and Ireby on the northern fringe of the Lake District. Attractively furnished, well presented and equipped to E.T.C. 5 Star standard, the living accommodation is on the first floor to take advantage of the outstanding views, including stunning sunsets over the Solway. There are pleasant walks and cycle routes from the door along lanes filled with wild flowers and wildlife. Keswick (on the shore of Derwentwater) and Cockermouth (birthplace of William Wordsworth) offer shops, restaurants, galleries and tourist attractions, the former with a leisure pool and the latter with a swimming-pool. Romantic, quiet and peaceful, yet an ideal base for the Lakes, Solway coast, Scottish borders and Hadrian’s Wall. Sailing on nearby Lake Bassenthwaite. Armathwaite Hall Hotel, a 10-minute drive, offers a swimming pool, gym, sauna, Jacuzzi and steam room. Maes Gallery and tea rooms serving food daily is within 2 miles. Ireby is within a mile with a warm, cosy pub with log fire, and serving food daily. Shops 5 miles.

About the local area

Bassenthwaite Lake and village of the same name is situated just north west of Keswick in the Northern Lakes. The magnificent Skiddaw (931m) can be seen rising to the east and Grisedale Pike (790m) to the south west.

Paths leading from Bassenthwaite village connect to circular walks in the area and holidaymakers are able to go fishing and sailing on the lake. From May to September look out for the wild Bassenthwaite Lake Ospreys raising their young chicks or watch the video link from Whinlatter Forest Visitor's Centre. Try a visit to the historic 17th century manor house, Mirehouse, which is close by on the eastern shore of the lake and has some lovely garden walks (Open April - October) or travel a few miles west to market town of Cockermouth or just a little further to Maryport on the coast.

This area offers the ideal base for exploring nearby Keswick; a charming Northern Lakes market town of great character and is well placed for touring the untouched northern and western lakes.
