Property code: SZ092

This property enjoys a remote location yet is within easy reach of Keswick and Ullswater. Walkers will be treated to a wealth of routes, from exhilarating mountain hikes to gentle waterside strolls.

This charming cottage for four forms part of a barn conversion, enjoying an enviable position in a peaceful village surrounded by stunning mountain scenery. The ground-floor accommodation is open plan, providing a spacious living/kitchen/dining area. Up on the first floor are the two bedrooms, both doubles, one with an en-suite bathroom and the other with an en-suite shower room. Outside is a shared parking area and a private patio with wooden benches and fantastic views towards Bowscale Fell.

Mosedale is ideally located for making the most of the fantastic walking opportunities in this part of the Northern Lakes. Tackle mighty Blencathra, one of the Lake District's most iconic fells. The well prepared can take on Sharp Edge but there are other routes to the top if you'd prefer to avoid the scramble. Whichever way up you choose to go, the views from the summit will be well worth the effort. Explore the fells of the Skiddaw Range or head up local hill Carrock Fell. The neighbouring village of Mungrisdale has a popular pub, perfect for enjoying a refreshing drink after a day out on the fells.

Spend a day exploring the bustling market town of Keswick. Indulge in some retail therapy, take in a show at the renowned Theatre by the Lake, or sign up for an activity with one of the local adventure companies. Try raft building, canoeing or ghyll scrambling, whilst the brave can take on the Via Ferrata at Honister Slate Mine. Why not head to beautiful Ullswater, less than a 25-minute drive away? It's the perfect location for enjoying a day at, in or on the water! Enjoy a peaceful lakeside stroll, wild swim or take a cruise around the lake on one of the popular steamers.

The open-plan ground floor of this property provides spacious and sociable living accommodation full of charming character features, from wooden beams to beautiful, exposed stonework. The kitchen area is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge-freezer, handy microwave and useful dishwasher. There's a lovely dining area here too, and down a few steps is the sunken living area, a cosy space just perfect for relaxing after a day out exploring. There's a Sky TV and DVD player for entertainment or simply sit and enjoy the stunning views from the full-height French windows, once the original barn doors.

Upstairs on the first floor are the two charming double bedrooms. Both rooms are spacious and have vaulted ceilings with feature wooden beams as a reminder of the building's history. The first double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with WC, washbasin and shower over the bath, and the second double room has its own en-suite shower room with WC, washbasin and shower cubicle.

The cottage has a wonderful private patio, accessed through the French doors from the living area. With wooden benches and stunning views towards Bowscale Fell, it's the perfect spot to enjoy a peaceful morning coffee or an evening aperitif. Catch up with a good book out here or unwind by watching the great variety of birds that also like to pay the garden a visit. Outside there's a parking area that's shared with the other cottages on site.

We had a lovely stay at the cottage. This barn conversion (next to the owner's house) is situated in a stunning location and surrounded by hills with views of lambs frollicking in the fields in front of the cottage.

The view from the lounge is mesmerising - could have gazed at it all day! Great location for walks from house - see Bowscale Tarn walk in Wainwrights book. Really warm and cosy and loved the open plan kitchen/ sitting room/ snug. Beautiful gardens - we spotted red squirrels there!

We loved our stay at Bowscale View, so many walks you can do from the doorstep. A wonderful view from the seated area in front of the property. The cottage was comfortable and was well equipped with everything we needed. A perfect place to return to after a long walk, we hope to visit again soon.

Beautiful location, good value with comfortable bedrooms and lounge. Owners friendly and helpful. Laundry room is a useful extra. Smaller children will need to take care with interior stonework.

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. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
