Property Description

Set amongst the natural splendour of the North Lakeland National Park, this house and adjoining holiday cottages 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 cottages share 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. Great little cottage - get the woodburner working and it get’s so cosy and warm. Brilliant location, especially for walks with the dog straight from the cottage. Just wish you could fix the weather! Sept 2011.
  2. Cottage is wonderfully placed for walks. April 2011.
  3. Compact but felt like a country cottage. Authentic log burner added to the ambiance. Lovely and quiet location. Nov 2010.
  4. The cottage is set in beautifull surroundings, we were there last year but stayed in Kirksty brow, this year we stayed in Brandle how, we loved the log fire and after a days walking to come back and have a jacuzzi bath was excellent. July 2010.
  5. The accommodation is very cosy and an excellent ’away-from-it-all’ location. We particularly like the field for exercising the dog. This was a return visit so we knew what to expect. Feb 2010.
  6. Lovely cosy and homely accommodation, perfect for couples and brilliant for the dog. Feb 2010.
  7. Cosy and good location. Dec 2009.
  8. Very dog friendly and more than adequate facilities to meet all our needs. Half the stuff we took with us we didn’t need as they had already provided household essentials. We will definitely be going back. Nov 2009.
  9. It was comfortable and homely. June 2009.
  10. Fantastic location and well appointed accommodation. Feb 2009.
  11. A lovely cosy cottage, completely dog-friendly, which is close to all the main northern lakes. Unfortunately the local pub in Dockray does NOT allow dogs on the premises. Jan 2009.
  12. A nice quiet and peacful place to unwind. May 2009.
  13. The cottage is situated at the top of a hill with stunning views of the local area. It is furnished to a high standard, with a very welcoming atmosphere and a high level of cleanliness. I would definitely visit again and would recommend this cottage to any of my family or friends. Jan 2009.
  14. Lots of walking possibilities; beautiful scenery; Keswick and Penrith within 15 minutes by car. July 2009.
  15. Enjoyed it so much going back in November!! Aug 2008.
  16. Excellent accommodation for walking and accommodating a dog. Very comfortable, warm and cosy. Ideal for a complete ’get away from it all’ holiday. Certainly be returning. March 2008.
