Please note There are 3 steps in the garden. \n If you’re looking for a quiet country retreat look no further than this cosy cottage in the village of Bigrigg just a short drive from Cumbria’s western coast. This lovely end-terrace within a handful of traditional quarryman’s cottages offers a great escape to the countryside. From the living area and bedroom windows you can enjoy uninterrupted open views across to the peaks of some of the most famous Lake District fells. It certainly gives you a fantastic start to your day when you wake up and look across the Lake District National Park and see the iconic peak of Scafell Pike in the distance and the outlying fells of Ennerdale Loweswater and Wasdale including Dent Fell. The amazing changing colours of the landscape through the season’s means you’ll never get bored of the great views from this rural retreat.\nThe cottage is furnished to a good standard and features an open plan living space on the ground floor as well as a bathroom with a large shower cubicle and utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer. The open plan design of the ground floor makes it a great social space and includes a Nespresso coffee machine to warm you up after a busy day of exploring. Upstairs you will find a comfortable kingsize bedroom with open views and a snug. This is a great place to relax after a long day in the fresh air and is equipped with a traditional Sony record player. The owner’s have provided a great collection of vinyl records for you to enjoy during your stay. The rear garden and patio offers a lovely outdoor space for soaking up the afternoon sun.\nThe village of Bigrigg offers a shop and pub under a mile away and you are also just 2½ miles from the popular towns of St Bees and Egremont. St Bees is a coastal Cumbrian town with a long stretch of sandy beach great for exercising your four-legged friends. It is also the most westerly part of Cumbria and is the starting point for the famous Alfred Wainwright Coast to Coast walk. Egremont on the other hand is a small market town offering a great selection of local shopping and dining experiences overlooked by the remains of a Norman castle dating back to the 1100’s. Beach 2¼ miles. Shop and pub ¾miles and restaurant 2¼ miles. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/144/840/1448440.jpg UKC2966

    Great weekend exploring. The property offers everything you need without overdelivering. The shower was excellent though, just what you need after a day exploring.

    Loved it. Ideal as a jump off point to tour the Western Lakes. Quiet, comfortable and well equipped.

    Everything we needed for a walking holiday base. Thoughtfully equipped cottage which was very comfortable.

    Bankend is in a fantastic location with beautiful views of the hills. The cottage has been tastefully updated and is very peaceful, ideal for unwinding.The owners have provided a super collection of vinyl and cds and there is a snug on the first floor to chill and listen to music. Very comfortable bed, however the stairs to the first floor are quite steep and tricky to negotiate during the night as the toilet is downstairs.Owners very helpful when contacted about the WiFi, which currently is via a dongle however I believe that broadband may be coming in the future. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend Bankend

    My husband and I had an amazing time at Bankend. The location is peaceful and picturesque and you quickly find yourself relaxing and recharging your batteries. The cottage itself was extremely well equipped with Everything you could possibly need. We have been all over the country staying in various locations and this cottage was by far the best for comfort. The log fire was a real treat on the cold evenings.



    out of 10

    Excellent location with wonderful views. Off the beaten track but still close to local amenities. Log burner beyond belief, no failures. Kitchen well equipped. If I had 1 gripe it was that the bathroom is downstairs, ideal during the day but not so good for during the night when a brim full bladder wakes you up. But careful toileting easily overcomes this. Clients should be warned about the extremely steep stairs to the 1st floor.

    Truly was a country cottage complete with log burner. Very cosy with everything we needed. Loved it.??
