Foxglove Nook is one of our NEW COTTAGES!
Foxglove Nook offers welcoming accommodation for up to 4 people. The accommodation is all laid out on the ground floor and has been designed to be suitable for wheelchairs. Inside you'll find a great open plan living-dining-kitchen area, 2 spacious bedrooms and a large wet room-style bathroom. The cottage also has parking for 1-2 cars and a little patio area off the master bedroom.
Located close to the hamlet of Calder Bridge on a working farm, from its elevated position Foxglove Nook offers amazing views over fields towards the Irish Sea and the historic site of Sellafield in the distance. At The Beacon Museum in the coastal town of Whitehaven you can learn more about the site's pioneering role in energy production. Whilst in Whitehaven, why not enjoy a stroll along the harbour before treating yourselves to some fish and chips, a must during a trip to the seaside!
With the beautiful valleys of Eskdale and Wasdale within easy reach, there's plenty of choice for longer days out. Visit magnificent Wastwater, the deepest of all the lakes, or head to St Begas church in Eskdale where you can learn all about the history of the local area. Enjoy a ride on the picturesque Eskdale and Ravenglass steam railway, visit the historic (and reputedly haunted) Muncaster Castle or enjoy a day at nearby Drigg beach. Take a scenic drive to remote Ennerdale Water, the most westerly of the lakes, and enjoy a peaceful picnic in beautiful surroundings.
