In the heart of the Lake District National Park


Woodend is situated off the beaten track in an accessible but remote location high on Birker Fell. Set within a relatively quiet, unspoilt area of the Lake District National Park, 7 miles from the main coast road, local village shops and the nearest pub are 4 miles, smaller market towns are 8 miles and larger towns are 15 miles away. It is a short drive to the more populated areas of Windermere and Coniston. These three unique self-contained holiday properties (refs 26868, 26869 and 27804) are full of character and charm with fantastic views of Scafell Pike, Bow Fell and Crinkle Craggs. They are set within, though not part of, a working farm, and are therefore surrounded by farm animals. The Bothy (ref 26868) offers cosy, comfortable, detached ’upside down’ accommodation within a private enclosed garden area. The School House (ref 26869) faces due south up the fell and offers detached ’studio accommodation’ and a spacious, south-facing conservatory/garden room (with an additional multi-fuel stove) and a private enclosed garden area. The Buttery (ref 27804) forms a wing of the main farmhouse, but is self-contained with its own entrance and an enclosed private garden area. Woodend Cottages are just a short walk from Devoke Water and are situated 3 miles from both the Eskdale Valley and the Duddon Valley, conveniently located for Ulpha, Eskdale, Boot, Seathwaite and Broughton-in-Furness. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 31/2 miles.

Ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen with beams and slate floor. Lower ground floor: 1 double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with slipper bath, shower attachment and toilet.

Use of washing machine available. Patio. Enclosed patio garden with sitting-out area and furniture. Fire basket.

All properties: Multi-fuel burner in living room (coal included, logs at cost). Economy 7 central heating, gas, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Travel cot on request. HD satellite TV (full package). DVD. Gas cooker. Use of tumble dryer available. Fridge/freezer. Wi-fi. Natural grounds. Parking (1 car). Natural water supply from stream. Pets free of charge.
