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.
