Occupying a serene spot on the northern fringe of the Lake District, this spacious farmhouse offers warm and relaxing accommodation for larger families and groups seeking a traditional retreat.

Situated on the edge of the National Park, this cottage offers the best of both worlds. It benefits from a quiet and tranquil location combined with easy access to one of the most spectacular and unspoilt areas of the Lake District. It is located in the peaceful hamlet of Mosser close to the lively Georgian market town of Cockermouth and a few miles from picturesque Loweswater.

The cosy Lakeland farmhouse full of original features. It has been carefully renovated to a high standard to offer comfortable accommodation for 12 people. It is the ideal property for a relaxed break with family and friends. The owners have furnished it with thoughtful touches including two wood burners, flatscreen TVs in the bedrooms and a pool table. There are five en-suite bedrooms all with wall mounted TVs and a further double and a twin bedroom sharing a luxury bathroom.

Mosser is a small hamlet on the fell side near Loweswater. It is ideally situated for enjoying walks from the door on Fellbarrow, to Loweswater and to Lorton. In the wider area Buttermere and Crummock are close by and Keswick is within a 30-minute drive.

The entrance to the cottage is through a traditional Lake District porchway leading to a comfortable sitting area, fitted with leather sofas, two wood burners and a snooker table. The cottage is kept in the original farmhouse style with modern fittings and solutions. The front patio is conveniently accessible through the sitting room right by the snooker table.

The sitting room leads to the kitchen and the dining room. The kitchen itself is equipped with an electric oven, a dishwasher and a farmhouse-style table sitting six. Please note that the range cooker shown in the photos is currently not in use. The sitting room is equipped with matching tables which can be moved together to provide dining space for 12.

Nice cottage, nice area but needs lots of improvements especially the road and the amenities need updating especially if a family of 12 stay. All in all it done us 8 for the 3 nights would struggle staying longer.

Fantastic accommodation. All equipment, utensils were available. Good for large parties though dinning room table too small for 10-12 people.

Good traditional sturdy Lake Distrct Farmhouse with spacious and predominantly comfortable accommodation. The Pool room Is a big asset. The remaining smaller oven is not large enough to efficiently self cater for a gathering of 12 people The location is fairly remote but directions are good and you can get supplies from Cockermouth only 15 mins by Read morecar. We are informed in advance about the long unmetalled access drive but pot holes need filling. Equipment could be improved. Hide

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too.
