Surrounded by dramatic scenery

Featuring beams taken from shipwrecks on the Cumbrian Coast, this small group of holiday cottages at Birkerthwaite, a former 17th century Lakeland farmstead, lie at the end of an unmade track and are surrounded by tranquil moorland scenery and farmland. This is fantastic walking countryside and the elevated position gives views of Scafell and the Eskdale Valley, creating a unique atmosphere of tranquillity.

Birkerthwaite Stable (W41477) is a single-storey converted stable with rustic charm heated by a log-burning stove. Birkerthwaite Barn (W41478) has a spiral staircase leading from a spacious kitchen/dining room to a galleried landing and a four poster bed. Birkerthwaite Cottage (W41479) has an upstairs open plan living area with polished wooden floors which opens onto a balcony overlooking pretty gardens.

Nearby attractions include Muncaster Castle and Hardknott Roman Fort, whilst the Langdale Pikes and Ambleside on the northern shores of Lake Windermere can be reached via a stunning drive over the Hard Knott and Wrynose Passes. A short drive away is Wast Water; to the west are lovely sandy beaches. Alternatively take the steam train from Ravenglass.
