Jenkinson Place is a traditional 17th Century Cumbrian Longhouse occupying a stunning elevated position overlooking Loweswater and the surrounding Lakeland Fells. It is secluded, cosy and magical and provides the perfect retreat for families or groups.
Renovated in 2013 to an exceptionally high specification, this is a luxurious and substantial property, sleeping ten people in five bedrooms, two of which are en-suite.
Situated in one of the most scenic areas of the Western Lake District, guests will have easy access to the best of what the area has to offer – walking, cycling, boating and sight-seeing. And for those rainy or lazy days there is abundant living space, with a large plasma digital television and fast broadband.
The front room is comfortably cavernous - with a substantial dining table that will seat 10 - as well as three sofas in front of a double-doored wood-burning stove. This is in addition to a kitchen/diner with a range and full facilities - including a ‘breakfast’ seating area with views over the lake. The property offers exposed beams, uneven walls as well as a large inglenook.
Jenkinson Place is a tranquil retreat with breathtaking views and the idylic location is surrounded by open fields and is situated at the end of a private lane with the famous walk, The Old Corpse Road, running nearby. The area is a red squirrel stronghold and enjoys inky black skies and clear starry nights. The local pub is The Kirkstile Inn with a longstanding reputation for an excellent atmosphere - matched by the food and beer. The Kirkstile also boasts a beautiful view from the beer garden.
Despite the secluded location, Cockermouth (7miles) and the main tourist centre of Keswick (12 miles) are both easily accessed by road.
Loweswater and the twin lakes of Crummock and Buttermere are all close at hand and within comfortable walking and cycling distance.
You can rent Jenkinson Place with its neighbouring house The Cottage at Jenkinson Place sleeping 4, allowing you to accommodate groups of 10-14 people.
