Wilkinsyke is a traditional farm cottage tucked away in the beautiful village of Buttermere. This tranquil area is surrounded by dramatic fells, farms and woodlands and is home to three lakes - Buttermere, Crummock Water and Loweswater. The village itself has two good pubs, a small chapel and two cafes - one of which serves homemade Buttermere ice cream!
You can experience superb walks from your own front door, from challenging mountain hikes to gentle lakeshore strolls - the choices are endless and the views are breathtaking. Cyclists will also enjoy the many routes from the village including the Honister, Whinlatter and Newlands Passes. Scale Force, the highest waterfall in the Lake District, is just a short walk from Buttermere, hidden away in a deep tree-lined gorge on the way from Crummock Water to Red Pike.
Sleeping 2 guests in 1 bedroom, Wilkinsyke is the perfect cottage for walkers and tourists looking to discover the Western Lake District. There is a well presented sitting room to relax in, a well equipped kitchen, a double bedroom and an upstairs reading room.
The popular market town of Cockermouth is within a 25 minute drive offering boutique shops, pubs and cafes. Keswick town is 30 minutes away and you'll find outdoor shops aplenty as well as pubs, restaurants, cafes, attractions and a cinema and theatre.
