Gate Cottage is a traditional Lake District home off the beaten track and so perfectly located for a walking holiday in the northern Lake District. The property offers comfortable accommodation for four people and one dog in two bedrooms, making it ideal for friends or a couple who want to pop on their walking boots and explore this lovely area on foot.
The cottage is located in Mungrisdale amidst beautiful mountain scenery. There are several fantastic walks straight from the door that are suitable for walkers of all abilities. Choose from a gentle stroll up the picturesque Glenderamackin Valley, a hike over Blencathra and Souther Fell or, an interesting ridge walk to the top of Bannerdale Crags.
Mungrisdale retains a peaceful air of seclusion and lends itself to a restful escape - it's truly a little corner of heaven! For those wishing to venture further afield then Ullswater, Helvellyn, Derwentwater, Skiddaw and Borrowdale are all within a 30-minute drive.
You'll find an excellent pub within a 5-minute walk of Gate Cottage, a village hall and a charming 17th century church. Mungrisdale is midway between Penrith and Keswick and both towns have plenty of good places to eat as well as a variety of shops. Keswick also has a cinema and a theatre.
