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. Local walks from the doorstep are plentiful. Cyclists will enjoy the quiet country lanes and golfers will find Keswick Golf Course one and a half miles away. The popular bustling market town of Keswick with an abundance of interesting shops, eateries and a good leisure centre is seven and a half miles away. 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.

    Blencathra can be booked together with The Garth (CC112156) to accommodate up to 12 guests.

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.

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!
