Escape to the heart of the Eden Valley to enjoy wonderful rural walks in the Lake District or Pennines before returning to the garden for a BBQ overlooking tranquil pastures and woodland.

This delightful barn conversion is located in the picturesque Eden Valley. The property has been tastefully and sympathetically converted whilst retaining original features. The peaceful countryside location is in the heart of the Eden Valley yet only a short distance from Penrith, Ullswater and the Lake District. The well-equipped cottage is surrounded by a large shared garden and also benefits from its own private garden and patio with BBQ. From this elevated position between Kirkoswald and Renwick you can enjoy uninterrupted views across tranquil pastures and woodlands towards the hills of the Lake District and Pennines.

The complex was originally built as a working farm during the middle of the 17th century. All the buildings here are constructed using the local red Lazonby Sandstone, both for the walls and the traditional sandstone tiled roofs. This cottage is an ideal base for walking and cycling (only a mile from the Coast to Coast route) or for exploring the Eden Valley, Lakes, Pennines and Hadrian’s Wall.

Formerly the dairy, this is a spacious detached cottage arranged all on ground floor level. Inside is a comfortable lounge with a Smart TV and wood burner. There is a fully-fitted kitchen with electric oven, gas hob, integrated dishwasher, fridge with freezer compartment and microwave as well as a dining table and chairs for four people. A washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer are located in a shared utility/laundry room.

The cottage has two bedrooms: a king-size bedroom and a twin bedroom (these beds can be made into a super-king with prior arrangement), both of which have en-suite bathrooms with a shower and WC. To reduce single-use plastic usage, we no longer provide complimentary toiletries in the bathrooms. Instead, we provide The Bath House hand wash and hand cream that we can refill.

To the front of the property there is a patio area with seating and a BBQ. This is enclosed by farm fencing, gates and a dry stone wall. To one side and the back of the property there is a private enclosed garden that has various seating options to help you follow the sun! In addition, there is also access to a large shared garden that has various seating options and stunning views of the Renwick fells. There is also designated parking right by the cottage.

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.
