An idyllic location that will help you unwind and relax and enjoy the countryside on offer, a true Oasis of peace and tranquillity. Mungrisdale is a small hamlet with a fine local pub by a meandering stream which serves excellent bar meals.

We are delighted to offer this superb, self-catering development of 7 properties that sit in a truly idyllic, elevated location with panoramic 360 degree views to nearby Saddleback and the Mungrisdale Valley. The cottages are located in a courtyard development next to the owners home who have used their extensive self-catering experience to cater for your every need and pride themselves on the standard of accommodation that they provide. The cottages are approached by a 1 mile track over the moorland amid 380 acres of classic Lakeland scenery.

Attractive, comfortable accommodation in a great location for Keswick and the northern Lakes. The grounds were very well laid out, giving us an amazing view of the whole valley, and we could walk from the front door.

Excellent service, settled in quickly, lots of places to store things, well equipped kitchen.
Home was attractive but sturdy, beds very comfy, peaceful
Ideally situated for our plans, visit keswick, climbing hills round Blencathra, but off the beaten track-lovely!
Bedrooms really nice, and when my legs ached so much, a loo downstairs would have been great!
Boiler/drying room excellent.
Only gripes: dishwasher kept switching itself off early and a grab rail on the bath is needed, thankfully i didint overdo the walking too much!
