Property Description

These three delightful cottages stand high on the fellside adjacent to the Cumbrian Way, with superb views across the valley to the hills around Ullswater. Converted from traditional stone barns overlooking a cobbled courtyard, they are all attractive and comfortable and make a wonderful holiday base. Experience Lakeland at its best, with every kind of outdoor activity on hand. Bank House Barns are a haven away from the stresses and strains of everyday living and ideal for anyone looking to spend some time amidst the peace and quiet of beautiful scenery. Walk straight out on to the fells from your cottage door, or go pony trekking and see the sights from a different angle (book at nearby Rookin House). Enjoy boating and sailing on Ullswater or take in the magnificent scenery on a launch trip up the lake. A region which offers something for everyone, whichever season you choose to visit – in the winter months, why not join the Lake District ski club and ski on Raise. For enjoyable days out, there are plenty of places to visit, including Aira Force waterfall, Wetheriggs Pottery Museum and Penrith Castle. Also in the area surrounding Penrith is the wonderful Rheged Discovery Centre, Lowther Leisure and Wildlife Park, Dalemain Historic House and Gardens and beautiful Hutton in the Forest. The lakes and fells to the south are easily reached or go north to the charming villages and historic sites in the Borders, a trip to fascinating Hadrian’s Wall is a must. Pub and restaurant 2½ miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Beautiful cottage and location. Two of my friends took me there on a girly week end away, the weather was beautiful, the cottage so incredibly cute with beautiful views and the landlord a star and went above and beyond making us feel at home! I would most definitely go back and would recommend. Very close to the lake. 5 * May 2012.
  2. The property was in good condition, you had everything you needed. Landlord was lovely too. March 2012.
  3. A lovely clean, family friendly cottage. Feb 2012.
  4. Very comfortable and warm. Pleasingly furnished. Peaceful location. Good views. Possibly not helpful for us to fill rest of this in as we were using property as an annexe to our own down the road. It would make a lovely spot for someone to spend holidays though not cheap. Much better appointed than our basic cottage!. April 2011.
  5. Excellent position for splendid walks on the fells and ridge routes Spectacular scenery in this part of the lakes. We were very fortunate to have only one day of rain when we had a very enjoyable day in Keswick. The rest of the week was glorious sunshine and blue skies with superb views in every direction. It was always great to come home to a lovely warm cottage and have hot water whenever we needed it for a bath or shower. March 2011.
  6. Very quiet situation very near top of hill with no passing traffic. Good views. We had everything we needed: it was very well equipped, especially with kitchen utensils. Owner on hand if necessary. Own parking place. Sept 2010.
  7. Off the beaten track - ideal for relaxing. May 2010.
  8. The property is one of three. These, plus the owner’s dwelling are located together in a converted farm building. Therefore, consideration has to be taken for others staying at the properties to keep noise and disturbance acceptable. Whilst we were there, other tenants were considerate, and is was a relaxing stay. The location is excellent for walking, as it is located in the Ullswater fells. No need to drive but just walk out the door and up the farm path onto the hills. Accommodation has plenty of room. Would go back there in future. April 2010.
  9. Spacious, well-kept, homely, and in an excellent location. Wonderfully remote, no passing cars - perfect for some quality time away. April 2010.
  10. Excellent location for exploring the area. Great views.Cottage was clean and comfortable. Apr 2010.
  11. The property was warm and cosy on arrival and the owner was there to meet and greet. It had everything we needed and was suitable for our needs. Oct 2009.
  12. Very clean, everything easy to find. Just good, hassle free weekend. Nov 2009.
  13. The owner is very pleasant and very helpful. The house is warm, has nice views, quiet, very comfortable and well laid out. Sept 2009.
  14. Very quiet, good views and access to lake. Sept 2009.
  15. Warm, comfortable, un-cluttered and yet every possible item required was there. July 2009.
  16. Fabulous location - very quiet, yet close to lots of walking opportunities, and well located for Keswick, Glenridding and Penrith. Feb 2009.
  17. Generally v. good and beds were comfortable. Very peaceful. The owner was good company and helpful when required. July 2009.
  18. Very clean, spacious and well equipped. Very hospitable host, who was friendly but not intrusive. June 2009.
  19. Friendly owner, good base for exploring the hills, though access road a bit steep and tight if you have a large car. Location is superb and quiet with views on to the hills (Great Mel fell).. Location - the wine on arrival was a nice touch and much appreciated. Aug 2009.
  20. The best self catering accommodation we have found in the last 30 years. July 2008.
