If a cosy bolthole with ample parking for up to four people in a tranquil Cumbrian village with a river running through and a pub within 10 minutes walk sounds good, then Borrowdale Cottage will be the perfect spot for you. This two bedroom terraced house is set in Bridgefoot, a peaceful village nestled between the Lake District National Park and the picturesque Solway Coast.
The cottage welcomes up to two dogs and is a great value spot for a couple or family of four to make the most of this lovely area. The beautiful, tranquil, Western Lakes are within easy reach with Loweswater, Crummock and Ennerdale all less than half an hour away. Around these wonderfully picturesque lakes you’ll find some of the most glorious walking in the area not to mention even more excellent pubs. The Solway coast is also just a 20 minute drive away - this part of the county has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with its abundant bird life, quiet seaside towns and stunning sunsets, and is most definitely worth a visit.
Borrowdale Cottage is only 10 minutes from Cockermouth which was the birthplace of Wordsworth. This is a delightful Georgian town with a friendly atmosphere, lots of independent shops and lovely restaurants. Why not explore Wordsworth’s childhood home or take a tour round Jennings Brewery and try some of their beers during your visit? The area surrounding the cottage has a great network of paths, quiet roads and cycleways to explore. So whether you’re feeling like exploring the natural beauty and the vibrant history of Cumbria or just savouring the tranquillity and local charm of a village like Bridgefoot, Borrowdale Cottage is a great place to start.
