Does the idea of an indulgent, historical gem of a cottage, nestled along its own lane, on the edge of woodland at the foot of three magnificent valleys appeal to you? Well if so Cubben House could be everything you're looking for. Situated at the edge of the Eskdale, Miterdale and Wasdale valleys this glorious cottage is the perfect place for a family or group of friends to escape the bustle of 21st century life and truly relax. Sleeping six people in three beautifully appointed bedrooms and offering simply staggering views of the surrounding countryside it's a welcoming and magical world of low beams, undulating floorboards nooks and crannies that will cast a spell over its visitors.

Eskdale is a tranquil and much loved western Lake District valley which offers glorious cycling opportunites and walking for all abilities. Not only this but it boasts five excellent pubs, a beer festival, ancient Roman history and, last but not least, the wonderful La'al Ratty; a narrow gauge steam railway gently pottering up to the mighty fells from the coastal village of Ravenglass. The valley has a character all of its own and has a world of interest to explore from paddling in the crystal clear river Esk to finding hidden Japanese gardens and taking in the views from a 2000 year old Roman Fort. The majestic Wasdale Valley in the western Lake District is justifiably famous for many reasons. It is the proud home to England's deepest lake, highest mountain, smallest church and even the competition for the World's Biggest Liar! The view from the foot of the lake was also voted Britain's Favourite View. Despite this fame it remains a wonderfully tranquil, unspoiled and timeless place with an atmosphere all of its own. Why not walk straight from Cubben House over Irton Pike to the peaks of the Screes, the mighty wall of crag and loose rocks which runs the length of the lake?

Alternatively guests might just be happy to close the gate behind them and just enjoy Cubben's own extensive grounds. With gardens to all sides capturing every drop of sunlight the day has to offer you could enjoy a sunny morning cuppa looking at Birker and Muncaster Fell or perhaps a sunset evening meal or glass of wine while looking over rolling fields to Irton Pike. You might well lose the younger members of the party to the "Cubben Arms" a large summer house with 'pub' games and even its own bar! On the other hand find a comfy spot and sit looking deep into the woodland at the rear of the house where deer, red squirrels and a multitude of birds visit the house. However you choose to spend your visit this elegant, magical and welcoming place is sure to be somewhere you'll want to visit time and time again.
