We fell in love with this cottage. Yes it has a steep drive but there is parking just up the road if you don’t have a 4x4.
The cottage had such a homely feel and the views are amazing. Beach and co-op 10 mins away and pub within walking distance, you couldn’t ask for more.

Would be even nicer in summer when you can sit out in the garden. We are missing the place already and can’t wait to go back.

My first visit to the Lake District and I was absolutely blown away. I was so glad that I chose Birk How. It is such a wonderful house in an amazing location, even without a car (My boyfriend trapped in Scottish lockdown and I do not drive). Breathtaking views and great walks from the doorstep. Extremely grateful for welcome tea, coffee, bread, eggs etc as didn't have shopping delivered until next day. There is a small local shop close by.
The house itself was well equipped with everything you could need. Plenty of logs and coal for extra warmth on a chilly evening. The double bed was very comfy. I must have spent hours sat there with a mug of tea enjoying the view and watching the light change. I noticed something new every day.
The nearest pubs were closed due to the Covid situation but The Bower House Inn did a great take out Sunday roast.
I wasn't completely alone as my daughter and granddaughter were just along in Rose Cottage. I did 'borrow' my granddaughter some nights when I was scared on my own. Yes, it's very dark out there, but great to actually see the stars.
Must say I thoroughly enjoyed the house to myself. Would love to return and explore more. Really couldn't have asked for a better base. Loved everything about the house, the garden and the area. Exceeded expectations.
Don't forget your wellies and/or good walking boots.

We love the area, the beds in the twin rooms we very uncomfortable However the double bed was very good.

Driveway is tricky but is commented on in many reviews.

We would happy stay there again.
