Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    The Garth can be booked together with Blencathra (CC112155) to accommodate up to 12 guests.

    Great location for our family holiday - the Garth was spacious and spotlessly clean with everything we needed. Judith and Mike made us feel so welcome and were very helpful. Our toddler grandson loved the animals. We couldn't do much about the weather but even in the rain, with the constantly changing skies over the fells, the Cumbrian scenery was as captivating as ever!

    This was our 2nd stay at the Garth and won't be our last, it will always be our first choice when staying in the Lake District, it has everything that you need and more it is just perfect in every way and to top it off the Mill inn is just up the road ?. Judith has thought of everything possible and the scones and jam are gorgeous especially after a long journey. Cannot wait to return soon and we will visit at Christmas very soon ??

    Xmas 2018 and I wanted somewhere special as my son and family were joining us from Australia. Well I certainly found it in The Garth. This cottage is set in beautiful countryside with easy access to lots of attractions. The cottage is spacious yet cosy and very well equipped with excellent quality in everything. Bedrooms are lovely as are the bathrooms. The large dining table was great for the 6 of us. The games room was a great addition and the welcome pack on arrival was very welcome. Great hosts , friendly and helpful, donkeys and alpacas were fun. I would definitely recommend this cottage for families, our toddler was catered for too.

    Lovely cottage, fully equipped with everything you can think of. Even though the cottage looks nice from the pictures on the website, frankly they do not do it it justice - the cottage is much nicer when seen in person. Was made to feel welcome & even had homemade scones and jam left for us. The Garth is a gorgeous cottage & I would recommend it to anyone. We will hopefully be going back!
