Traditional Lakeland cottage, with stone feature walls, beams and lots of quirky features, the perfect hideaway for a couple discovering the Lakes.

Immerse yourselves in the beauty of the northern Lakes when you stay at this delightful character cottage in Uldale, 10 miles from Cockermouth. Sleeping two guests, and also welcoming one canine companion, the delightful, one-bedroom abode makes a simply idyllic romantic retreat for a couple. Dating back to the 1600s and once part of a yeoman’s house, the gorgeous stone holiday home has been creatively refurbished to offer comfortable accommodation with an abundance of original charm. From here, make excursions to Lake Bassenthwaite, 4 miles away, and Derwentwater, 11 miles away. Return to soak up the sunshine and the Lakeland scenery from the privacy of the pretty cottage garden.

Wander through the porch and into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which is toasty in the winter thanks to the oil-fired Aga. Settle in here to take in the fabulous views; you’ll have a Smart TV with Sky Q so you can watch films together too. Prepare romantic meals in the kitchen area, where you’ll have a dishwasher, plus a washing machine and a tumble dryer. Venture up the cottage-style staircase when it is time to take yourselves off to bed. Choose from a king-size bedroom, with an en-suite shower room, or on the mezzanine floor above, an additional single bed and reading area. Gaze out towards the mountains from the garden on sunny days and have a cocktail out here as the sun goes down. There is parking for two cars at the cottage.

While away a few hours in Cockermouth, browsing in the shops, visiting Wordsworth House and Gardens, and exploring the castle. Have a day out in Keswick, 11 miles away, where you can take a launch out on Derwentwater, have a go at paddleboarding or canoeing, and book tickets to a show at the Theatre on the Lake.

Lovely cottage in a quiet rural farming village a short drive from Keswick. Location is great because it is out of the tourist hustle and bustle but all the attractions of the Lake District are in easy reach. A bus goes through the village if you don't have a car. Comfortable well-appointed, and homely accommodation with everything you could want. Read moreReally helpful hosts who were very responsive to our queries and who kept us updated about things. Ideal for a couple, nice outside space; lovely! Hide

We had a lovely stay in your beautifully cosy cottage. We loved the warmth of the Aga especially as we arrived rather late at night. It was very peaceful and we were able to relax straight away. It was very well equipped and everything was easy to use. Altogether a blissful few days.

Lovely little cottage on the northern edge of the Lake District. Perfect if you want to explore Bassenthwaite and the nothern fells. The cottage is perfect for a couple and a dog. The owner is very friendly and helpful, and the cottage had some great leaflets with walks, including a great booklet for walks with dogs in the area.
