Property code: SZ557

With magnificent views of majestic fells, this holiday home welcomes you back from adventures and provides you with somewhere homely to relax. Continue your day outside on the patio or sit inside by the French doors.

With views accross the meadows and woodland towards Bassenthwaite Lake and Whinlatter beyond, this holiday cottage is one of four cottages in the converted barn at Parkergate. The property is south-west-facing with French windows leading to a patio – a fabulous spot to watch the sun go down after a hard day out on the fells.

The sitting room is on the ground floor and has a TV and DVD, and french windows leading out to the patio which has fantastic views towards Bassenthwaite Lake and the fells beyond. Dining is in the sitting room and the kitchen area is just beyond this. It is fully equipped with cooker with ceramic hob and electric oven, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave, dishwasher and plenty of storage space. A shower room is also downstairs and then upstairs there are three bedrooms – one single, one double and one twin. There is a second bathroom up here with bath and shower over. There is a separate dryer room (with clothes airer, iron and ironing board) which is shared with the other cottages at Parkergate.

There is walking from the front door both to the higher fells, in Dodd wood (where the osprey’s nest can be seen from the viewing platforms during nesting season and red squirrels abound) and down to Bassenthwaite Lake. The lovely St Bega's church nestles on the lakeshore, said to be the inspiration for Alfred Tennyson's Morte d'Arthur after his visit there in 1835. Bassenthwaite village is a thirty minute walk (1.5 miles) over the fields and is home to a pub, which serves good meals and ales if you fancy a break from self catering!

This cottage is comfortable, incredibly clean and in a really beautiful position. The views are incredible and there is easy access to many walks straight from the door.

Stayed recently in 5 bedroomed house in Scotland at about same price range and there were hairdryers in every bedroom together with above items. Also difficult to walk round bed in double room to access toilet on a night without banging legs. Double mattress quite hard compared with others.

Had a lovely week in the Whinlatter cottage. Good cleanliness and all equipment worked. Excellent views from the patio outside seating area; west facing so good sunsets. Couple of miles to nearest pub; Sun inn at Bassenthwaite village. Reserve table to be sure as gets very busy; food and beer very good. Good walks from Mirehouse and cottage; see guRead moreides in communal area where there is a boot room for drying and a shared freezer. We reported a couple of minor issues which were sorted that day. Hide
