    Beautiful, exceptionally well-equipped cottage. Its location is perfect - near enough to visit all the top attractions of the Lake District but far enough away from the crowds. Judith, the owner, is friendly and helpful without being at all intrusive.

    Lovely location and great access to the rest of the Lakes while still being off the beaten track. The accommodation was really nice with good facilities and the owner was really helpful and welcoming for any of our needs.

    Great location for enjoying the northern lakes and fells. Walks from the door, including Blencathra itself. Good range of facilities available and if you need anything just ask the owners. The best equipped kitchen we have ever had with a holiday rental. The Mill Inn (Murgrisdale) is worth a visit, but you may need to ring ahead to book a table during the summer - we arrived at 6.30pm and got the last table for that mid-week evening. Games room is a bonus - particularly if it is wet. Easy to find, and park. Pubs within walking distance (assuming you like a long walk!), but shops are further afield.

    A lovely very well equipped cottage in a beautiful location Extremely comfortable and very dog friendly, even a small wooded area where they can be off lead without worrying about sheep. Judith and Mike are lovely hosts, keen to ensure we had a happy stay. We hope to return and will be recommending the cottage to family and friends.

    Lovely to be back at Blencathra & The Garth for the second New Year running. Warm welcome from the owners on site and homemade scones & jam much appreciated on arrival. Excellent house and quiet location with superb views. Thanks again, we'll be back!

    This is a very attractive cottage, suitable for a small family. It is well equipped with most things that you will need for your holiday. It is in remote, but with excellent scenery. The owners were helpful and very friendly

    Wow! I can honestly say this is the best place we have stayed in ever! We received a gorgeous welcome pack of scones & jam with fresh flowers dotted around our cottage and even our dog got his own bed, bowl. towels & biscuit upon our arrival. We stayed at "Blencathra" - a two-bedroomed Grade II listed barn/cottage that feels like home with gorgeous furniture, furnishings and everything we needed was available. The cottage has that "5 star" touch and even has the extra toilet under the stairs as well as a small family bathroom. The upside down style of this place gave us views of Blencathra and the fells in the open lounge/kitchen that took our breath away and it was a joy to start up the fire very low every now and then just to feel that extra cosy with a couple of lamps on - although it did get hot and I had to open all the windows and turn the fire off! We were able to walk around the farm and explore and visit the animals: sheep, 2 donkeys, several alpaca and the owners' 4 dogs and one particular day we had the privilege of watching one of the working dogs "Moss" round up all the sheep to place in the next field. Our 10 yr old son Jack was desperate to play in the games room and found a new good friend who was staying next door at "The Garth". Every day we did something different and this cottage is the perfect base for you to visit every part of the county whether it be walking, sailing, canoeing, rock-climbing, visiting places of history and going to all the National Trust venues. Keswick is about 8 miles away which is a lovely town to visit and do all your weekly shopping but since I was glad to get away somewhere totally rural, we sorted out our food shopping early on Saturday morning in this town and spent the rest of our week slowing down and unwinding to the point that on our last day we were genuinely sorry to leave. Many thanks to Judith and Mike who both went out of their way to ensure our holiday was special and left a lot of very good memories. Would I recommend this beautiful place to everyone? I would recommend this cottage to all those who respect our countryside, our hard-working farmers, the local community and Judith & Mike - they all deserve it....
