In the heart of the Lake District National Park

Woodend is situated 'off the beaten track' in an accessible but remote location high on Birker Fell just a short walk from Devoke Water and set within a relatively quiet and unspoilt area of the Lake District National Park. A short drive from the more populated areas of Coniston and Windermere, these two unique self-contained detached holiday properties (refs 26868 and 26869) have fantastic views towards Scafell Pike and are full of character and charm and set within, though not part of, a working farm so are surrounded by various farm animals. The Bothy (ref 26868) offers cosy and comfortable 'upside down' accommodation within an enclosed garden area. The School House (ref 26869) faces due south up the fell and offers character studio accommodation, with a private south-facing garden area which surrounds both sides but is not totally enclosed. Situated 3 miles from both the Eskdale Valley and the Duddon Valley and conveniently located for Ulpha, Eskdale, Boot, Seathwaite and Broughton-in-Furness. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 3.5 miles.
