The barn has an upside down layout with a large open plan living area on the first floor. Lovely views of the local fells and Blencathra surround the barn and the owner’s sheep and lambs graze in the meadows around the cottages along with alpacas and donkeys.

Stretch your legs along the edge of Derwentwater or through the Borrowdale Valley and pick up the Keswick Launch to cruise back again. Towards the south Ullswater and Thirlmere are a short drive away and both offer spectacular scenery challenging walks and plentiful activities. Shop pub and restaurant 2 miles. \n\n\nBlencathra can be booked together with The Garth CC112156 to accommodate up to 12 guests.\n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/124/840/1241587.jpg CC112155

Great place to stay, would happily go back. Location is brilliant, 15 mins into Keswick, 20/25 mins from Ambleside. As a photographer I was 15 mins from Derwent water, 15 mins from Ullswater, 15 mins from Thrilwater etc.. Couldn’t have been better. Cottage was really cosy, really nice decor showing the old building while still being modern. It has everything you need for self-catering, all you need to bring is food. Towels, hairdryer, dishwasher (plus tablets) salt, pepper, every cooking tool needed, bin bags and loads more. Judith and Mike were great hosts, they will go out of their way to help you, all you need to do is ask. They did with me in order to get some red squirrel photos. (you will see red squirrels while here) Very dog friendly, they have a new wood which is fenced in to take the dog out to the toilet, this saves the back gardens from getting messy and is encouraged to use. The garden is lovely but you do have to go outside the front door to get to it. Games room is great, ping pong, pool/snooker and fussball. Even provide board games, cards etc… You can also walk around the farm to see the animals, you will meet the 3 dogs pretty quickly as they roam around, the donkeys will come and say hi and love an eye rub. Tips: Wifi is good enough to stream from Netflix, so bring a laptop/phone cable to hook into the tv (hdmi). Bring a torch for those late night dog toilet trips as it’s very dark outside. (although there is a little one in the drawer if you want to use that)

Nice cottage in a fantastic location in the lake district located between the supermarkets of Penrith and the lovely cafes and restaurants in the quaint town of Keswick. Only 10 mins from the motorway junction but the property feels very isolated (a good thing). The lakes of Ullswater and Derwent water are 15 mins drive and offer fantastic walks in the mountains. The cottage itself is well stocked and clean. The living area is upstairs and the bedrooms/bathroom downstairs. With a small private garden with fabulous views too. The cottage has a lot of character with wooden beams and part exposed brickwork. Some of the furniture and the bathroom are a little dated but not a major issue. Nice powerful shower. The kitchen is new, well equipped and crockery very clean. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Home made jam and scones on arrival. Very dog friendly with a medium sized bed, towels and bowls supplied. Plus a dedicated dog woodland for them to run around. It's small but still a great feature. Would recommend for a small family looking to escape in the lakes.
