Julia's first construction job!


Sally’s dad is busy doing some work on one of his Lake District cottages ready for next year and on Friday Julia and Rob took the opportunity to give him a hand putting up plaster boards.

Julia working at our Lake District cottages

Orchard Barn offers group accommodation for up to 12 people and is situated in the pretty little village of Applethwaite, about a mile outside Keswick.  The alterations aren’t going to add any extra capacity but they will mean that the bedrooms will be larger and there will also be an extra en suite bathroom.

This is the view from the new bedroom in the Barn, offering a stunning panorama of Grisedale Pike, Grassmoor and the Borrowdale Fells - Last week brought the first snow and the Lake District was transformed into a winter wonderland.  There was enough snow to go sledging but not enough to cause any inconvenience …..perfect!

The Lake District is magical in the Winter and our Lake District Cottages are the perfect way to come and enjoy it.  We still have a few cottages available for the New Year and there are lots of great bargains to be had in January and February.  What could be better than getting home from a day in the snow and settling down in front of the fire at one of our stunnning cottages.
