An enchanting country retreat
Our 16th century holiday cottages in a unique setting provide a stunning base for exploring the gorgeous Lake District and West Cumbrian beaches. With Gardener’s Cottage and The Hayloft having 4-star gold and Gamekeeper’s Cottage having 5-star gold ratings from Visit England, our luxury holiday cottages have everything you could need for a relaxing stay. On the fringes of the Lake District National Park, 14 miles from Keswick, 5 miles from the West Cumbrian beaches, and just 3 miles from the market town of Cockermouth, we are perfectly located for your home away from home.
We look forward to welcoming you to our little piece of paradise.
