  • Situated in a pretty Lakeland village, with pubs and shops just around the corner

Property code: 85807

This completely refurbished and well-presented house offers the perfect base for families to discover the Cumbria coast and Lakes, with an enclosed garden for your four-legged friends.

Retreat to the western fringes of the beautiful Lakes when you stay at this well-designed holiday home in the village of Gosforth. Located approximately 5.5 miles from the coast at Ravenglass, the four-bedroom house sleeps six guests and up to four dogs. Plan trips out to picturesque Eskdale, 5.5 miles away, or to scenic Wastwater, 4.5 miles away. Walk on the beach at Ravenglass, see the ruins of the Roman bathhouse, then return to relax out in the garden at your Gosforth cottage.

Enter via the hall and wander through to the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Put the kettle on for a cup of tea, unpack the provisions you have bought and consider whipping up a tasty meal for your party. You have a useful washing machine, plus a dishwasher so no one has to wash up after dinner. Make your way over to the comfortable seating to unwind in front of the Smart TV, play games with your family or friends, or read your book. Climb the stairs at the end of each exciting day to soak in a bubble bath in the family bathroom then lay your head in either the super-king-size bedroom, the twin, the double or the small double. Spend sunny evenings out in the garden, sizzling supper on the BBQ and sitting out round the firepit until the stars come out. Parking for this cottage is on the road, subject to availability.

Keen walkers might like to attempt the 8-mile loop of Wastwater, which takes in some magical views. Eager climbers can drive 8 miles and then attempt to reach the top of Scafell Pike, the second-highest mountain in England. Stanley Ghyll Waterfall and Great Worm Cragg, both about 10 miles away, are other beauty spots hikers will enjoy.

  • 4 bedrooms – 1 super king-size, 1 double, 1 small double and twin room
  • Property can sleep up to 7 guests, though seating, and dining for 7, is spread throughout the open plan downstairs
  • 1 Bathroom with shower over bath and WC and 1 ground floor WC
  • Kitchen with electric hob and oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave

Really well thought out property and very well equipped. Clearly and great owner and brilliant cleaner. Comfortable beds, nice towels, lots of space. Brilliant storage. Great garden. Location is perfect for walkers but a little remote for families. Village is cute. Lion and lamb pub was great. Really enjoyed our stay.

We (including our 3 dogs) absolutely loved our stay at Orlando. Very comfortable, clean and well equipped cottage. The rear garden is brilliant for dogs and to sit out in. Great location for getting about to local areas. Short distance to the coast. A couple of minutes walk to local grocery bakery and pubs which serve great food. We would certainlyRead more live to stay at Orlando again. Thank you for allowing our dogs to holiday in the cottage. Hide

Nice cottage with safe enclosed garden for dogs. However, watch the road outside the front door which can get surprisingly busy at times. Close to some great pubs which are all dog friendly.

An ideally located cottage, in a brilliant village setting, close to the sea, and offering a chance to explore some of the less trodden areas of the Lake District. Great for dog owners with ceramic floors throughout downstairs - easy to keep clean! Lovely comfy bedrooms, a very warm cottage for our late winter break.

The cottage was beautiful, decorated to a high standard and spotlessly clean. It was very well equipped and the welcome basket on our arrival was another lovely touch. It was situated in an ideal place with pubs and a shop a five minute walk away. The Lake District was an easy driving distance away with lots of lovely walks to go on.

Lovely cottage in a lovely village, ideally situated for the coast and Western lakes. Small local shop for basic food/drinks and 3 nice pubs within short walk, the Kellbank just 100mtrs away, really nice food and drink. Plenty of room upstairs, 4 generous bedrooms but lounge seating would be tight if more than 4 or 5 adults. Very dog friendly.

Orlando is an excellent property based in the lovely village of Gosforth which has great places to eat, excellent bakery and a decently stocked convenience store.
