Parkergate Loft holiday cottage, a converted hay loft providing self catering accommodation for 4 people, is situated in the lovely grounds of Parkergate,located in an enviable position with magnificant outlook. Lying at the foot of Ullock Pike and nestling under the grandeur of Skiddaw and overlooking meadows and woodland towards Bassenthwaite Lake. The property is south facing and therefore a wonderful spot to enjoy the lovely sunsets over the fells, perhaps with a glass of wine on the balcony. There is walking from the front door both to the higher fells, in Dodds wood (where the Osprey's nest can be seen from the viewing platforms during nesting season and red squirrels abound) and down to Bassenthwaite Lake. The lovely St Bega's church nestles on the Lake shore, said to be the inspiration for Alfred Tennyson's Morte d'Arthur after his visit there in 1835. Bassenthwaite village is a thirty minute walk (1.5 miles) over the fields and is home to The Sun Inn which serves good meals and ales. Parkergate Loft is best suited to a couple or single person with children as the layout maybe a little restrictive for two couples.
