Converted from the old stables this cottage is one of 3 and can be rented together to sleep 12 people. The cottage has views over the fells and is conveniently located to explore the Northern Lake District.
Located almost mid-way between Penrith and Keswick, a mile off the A66 with easy access both to Keswick and Ullswater both 15 minutes away. 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. During warmer weather the stream is often filled with ch...ildren paddling whilst the parents enjoy a lazy afternoon with a picnic whilst soaking up the scenery.
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.
The former outbuildings of the farmhouse have been skilfully converted by local craftsmen, retaining a wealth of features whilst combining the comforts of modern day living to provide one cottage sleeping 7, one sleeping 5, three 2 bedroom ground floor adjoining cottages, a 2 bedroom luxuriously appointed ground floor apartment and a first floor 1 bedroom apartment.
The properties are all set within 2.5 acres of well tended gardens with many private seating areas, allowing you to relax and take advantage of the stunning 360% views.

We picked this cottage because of it's position in relation to the Northern fells. Everything that we needed was in the cottage. Sadly we were let down by the weather a little but other than that it catered for our every need. The proprietors were very helpful, as and when needed but mostly just left us to get on with our stay. All in all we had a very good week.
Excellent accommodation in beautiful surroundings

Cottage was in a lovely location, well equipped and very comfortable. Would have given this 5 stars except that we arrived on an exceptionally snowy weekend and access to the cottage by car was difficult.
Absolutely loved where it was, and the accomodation was spaces &
