Property Description

Surrounded by dramatic scenerySurrounded by dramatic scenery

Featuring beams taken from shipwrecks on the Cumbrian Coast, this small group of holiday cottages at Birkerthwaite, a former 17th century Lakeland farmstead, lie at the end of an unmade track and are surrounded by tranquil moorland scenery and farmland. This is fantastic walking countryside and the elevated position gives views of Scafell and the Eskdale Valley, creating a unique atmosphere of tranquillity. Birkerthwaite Farmhouse (W43001) is a unique holiday property dating back to 1627 and has many original features, beamed ceilings, flagged floors and unusual oak wall cupboards built in the 1700’s. Comfortably furnished and with the benefit of an open fire and an Aga, the farmhouse is cosy and welcoming. Birkerthwaite Stable (W41477) is a single-storey converted stable with rustic charm heated by a log-burning stove. Birkerthwaite Barn (W41478) has a spacious kitchen/dining room, a galleried landing and a four poster bed. Birkerthwaite Cottage (W41479) has an upstairs open plan living area with wooden floors which opens onto a balcony overlooking gardens. Nearby attractions include Muncaster Castle and Hardknott Roman Fort, whilst the Langdale Pikes and Ambleside on the northern shores of Lake Windermere can be reached via a stunning drive over the Hard Knott and Wrynose Passes. A short drive away is Wast Water; to the west are sandy beaches. Alternatively take the steam train from Ravenglass. Shop 3 miles, pub 2.5 miles.

All on ground floor: Living room with patio door, beams and slate floor/dining room/step to kitchen. Step to 1 double bedroom. Bathroom with shower attachment and toilet.

Woodburner in living room included. Electricity and bed linen included. DVD and small library. Electric cooker. Microwave. Washing machine. Patio and furniture. Parking (1 car). Natural water supply from spring. Friday to Friday.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Amazing location to get away from it all. Great walks straight from your front door. Great local pubs. Overall a lovely warm cottage suitable for a couple with a dog or two! Oct 2012.
  2. A wonderful location with great views. The weather was mixed so it was restrictive, however the sky at night was well worth seeing. A nice cottage with an excellent multi fuel burner. I think that it would be a good idea to include towels, which would not incur too great a cost. Try Hardknott Pass for a thrilling drive also Grange over sands well worth a visit. Sept 2012.
  3. Lovely place for completely getting away from it all. Feb 2012.
  4. Beautiful cottage with real rustic charm and a great sense of remoteness. Feb 2012.
  5. An excellent secluded location, beautiful views. Sept 2011.
  6. Having been in a few holiday cottages over the years, this was by far the most comfortable and cosy so far. If it wasn’t for the fact that we try to go to a different part of the country each year, we would definitely go back to The Stable again. April 2011.
  7. As expected and fantastic for walkers. Jan 2011.
  8. The cottage was very remote and peaceful. The standards of cleanliness and equipment was excellent. Sept 2010.
  9. Pretty, functional and clean. May 2010.
  10. Lovely location, nice and peaceful. Walks available from the door (literally - the footpath runs through the farmyard). View from the patio is great. Woodburner was nice - once you got it going! Feb 2010.
  11. It was cosy and secluded with beautiful landscapes, perfect. Dec 2009.
  12. We liked to return to a cosy cottage warmed by the woodburner after a day’s walking. The cottage is remote enough to provide tranquility with plenty of wildlife on the doorstep - with 3 pubs, a shop and the Ratty Railway just a 2-mile walk down a beautiful waterfall path. Best of both worlds. Nov 2009.
  13. The wood burner was cosy, a basic place to stay, but thats what we wanted! Nov 2009.
  14. Fantastic views. Superb location. Oct 2009.
  15. The remoteness and fabulous location. Aug 2009.
  16. Clean tidy cottage in a stunning location good for getting away from it all. Warm and cosy when heating on. Bath could do with upgrade. Aug 2009.
  17. The most relaxing holiday i’ve had. The cottage was perfect, with its slate floors and log burner. When we arrived it was clean, tidy and welcoming. Everything was just as it was described. Loved the fact it was off the road. Made it much more authentic. Can’t wait to come back. July 2009.
  18. The cottage is quite remote but full of character. The views are stunning. July 2009.
  19. The cottage was lovely, with breath taking views. It had everything you needed for a (get away from it all) relaxing holiday. We had the log fire going a few evenings when it was a bit chilly which made it even more cosy. Loved every minute and didn’t want to leave. We will be coming back. July 2009.
  20. The accommodation was perfect for 2 people + dog. It was well equipped and provided us with a great base for a walking holiday. The scenery was breathtaking - even in the rain. Would definitely look to book again. Aug 2008.
