Property Description

Ideal touring base

Set amongst the natural splendour of the North Lakeland National Park, this house and adjoining holiday cottage are tastefully furnished, providing a cosy and relaxed environment. A haven for nature lovers or for those wishing to get away from it all, as well as a wonderful base for touring, walking, cycling and enjoying the many outdoor activities this region has to offer. Ullswater is only 5 minutes away, where you can take the Lake Steamer to Howtown and walk back along the lakeside or sail to Pooley Bridge. Keswick, Ambleside and Grasmere offer shops and galleries and the breathtaking Honister, Hard Knott and Kirkstone passes are a must. Bank House is a traditional former farm house, overlooking the hamlet of Matterdale End, and enjoying panoramic views of the Ullswater fells from the house and terraced garden. The holiday cottage shares an enclosed sitting-out area with access to the field, which is suitable for dog walks. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The pictures did not do this cottage justice, it was a beautiful retreat! We were also pleasantly surprised to find all 4 bedrooms with en suites, which was not in the advert. We went with another family and felt the accommodations were very spacious. The AGA was such a treat! We cooked in for dinner every night! The only thing I would suggest to the owners is to provide hand towels for each bathroom and basic staples (sugar, oil...) in the kitchen would be appreciated. The shops are not near, so stock up when you are in a bigger town. Feb 2012.
  2. The property is in a peaceful quite location, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Spacious kitchen with full AGA, wood burning stoves made the rooms warm cosy and inviting. The bedrooms all had on suite showers and toilets. Oct 2010.
  3. An excellent house to say in, we were two families of four adults and four under 7s, the space is great! April 2010.
  4. Spacious comfortable accommodation. Good situation fro walkers. Dog friendly. Sept 2009.
  5. Warm and comfortable. Oct 2009.
  6. A beautiful house with stunning views, couldn’t have been nicer!! The only point to raise is that the house could use info on rubbish collection as we had no idea what to do with it!! Sept 2009.
  7. Spacious comfortable accommodation. Good situation for walkers. Dog friendly. Sept 2009.
  8. We really enjoyed our holiday and Bank House Farm was cosy and just right for what we wanted. More info on the rubbish collection would of been good. That said though we loved it and would go again. Please thank Roy (He lives next door and answered all our questions). June 2009.
