Property Description

In a magnificent rural setting, with fabulous views of the Skiddaw mountain range, magnificent sunsets over the Solway Firth, and the hills of Galloway across the border, these comfortable holiday properties were winners of the Keswick Tourism Association Country Establishments in 2000, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007 and the Cumbria in Bloom Tourist Board Rose Bowl for Self Catering Establishment winners in 2004, 2005 and 2006. Rose Cottage (ref LPD) is attached to the owner’s farmhouse home, Rosemary Cottage (ref LTG) adjoins another property, Rambling Rose Cottage (ref LWG) and Rosedale Cottage (ref LYL) are adjacent and have both been converted to a high standard, and Primrose Cottage (ref LPG) has been converted from a former byre and stands in a courtyard which is bedecked with flower tubs, window boxes and hanging baskets. The cottages are beautifully furnished and equipped to VisitBritain ‘5 Star Gold’ standard, except Rosemary Cottage which is equipped to a VisitBritain ‘4 Star Gold’ standard. Guests will enjoy the friendly rare breeds sheep and ponies (including miniature shetland ponies) and visitors are welcome to walk in the fields surrounding the farm (a red squirrel has been spotted in the grounds), as well as the many public footpaths nearby. This 500-acre farm is set in an AONB, with walks from the door plus superb fell walking nearby. Keswick stands on the shores of Derwent Water and is an excellent base to explore delightful Borrowdale. In the town itself are many interesting shops, inns and restaurants, as well as a leisure pool. Cockermouth also has a swimming pool. Just 6 miles away Bassenthwaite Lake offers a variety of watersports. Enjoy Derwent Water, Crummock Water and Buttermere, surrounded by Lakeland’s dramatic scenery. Guests can enjoy a local distillery, found 7 miles away. There is tennis, riding and golf, as well as good fishing locally and excellent bird watching from the farm, as well as the chance to spot the occasional red squirrel and deer, whilst it is a short drive to Osprey Watch at Dodd Wood, Bassenthwaite. Shop 4 miles. There is a good choice of pubs and restaurants locally (including vegetarian). The pretty village of Caldbeck is 4 miles, with a restaurant, tea rooms and shops. Uldale is 2 miles with a pub serving good food.

  3. All the cottages at Daleside Farm, Nr Keswick are second to none. A holiday at this location is a must. May 2011.

  7. Well maintained and equipped. Aug 2010.
  8. Beautiful property. July 2010.
  9. The owners lived in a house adjoining the cottage. They were incredibly helpful and welcoming - wood burning stove going on arrival (at 9.00 at night!) plus warm home made scones and a bottle of wine. When we asked for anything (ice tray for freezer) it was with us within minutes and they were interested but not intrusive throughout the week as to what we had been doing that day etc. Exceptionally nice people. April 2010.
  10. We really enjoyed the central location for accessing the lake district, and the friendlines of the owners who not only ensured we had a wonderful stay in their cottage but also provided an endless supply of logs for the wood burning stove. Dec 2009.
  11. A very english cottage. Oct 2009.
  12. Primrose cottage was cosy and comfortable. The standard of accommodation was outstanding and the owners were very welcoming. Oct 2009.
  13. Some lovely touches on arrival, i.e bottle of milk, sweets, fresh home made scones and a very welcoming and friendly host. Our children especially enjoyed their involvement in the farm made possible by the farmer. July 2009.
  14. The prettiest cottage you could possibly have with delightful owners. Couldn’t fault it in any way. Feb 2009.
  15. One of the best self-catering cottages we’ve had - both in the UK and France. Very nice accommodation, genial and helpful hosts, marvelous location. April 2008.
  16. So many welcoming touches - wine, chocolates and warm scones on arrival - all added to this already excellent accommodation. Owners very helpful and cottage comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated and maintained. July 2007.
  17. On arrival (a wet, cold, dull mid December evening), the owners had a lit a fire for us and laid the breakfast table even including a plate of fresh scones. The views are breathtaking and the children (2 1/2 and nearly 5) loved the teddy bears everywhere in Primrose Cottage and the outdoors animals. The owners are lovely and brought us apple to feed the pot-bellied pigs. Dec 2006.
