    “Very Good”

    Very good - apart from
    cottage had upstairs with banisters - which a small dog could slip through
    Nearby fields had sheep so there was not really anywhere to give the dog a good run/walk off the lead, but the dog did enjoy running around the paved area and the paths nearby.
    Location - only 5-10 minutes outside Cockermouth - but Cockermouth has limited entertainment facilities
    Several light bulbs were not working - but this did not cause a real problem
    many recycling bins - but instructions are not all clear. For example, do egg shells go in food waste or food packaging or ...? The UK as a whole has an issue in that different councils have different rules and also different levels of imposing the rules.


    Reply from Southwaite Green Farm at 6 Mar 2017

    We check the light bulbs every time the cottage is cleaned but notice that the long life energy efficient bulbs do not seem to last as long as advertised. When they go they tend to go at the same time. We will always replace if people ask. We love Cockermouth especially as it is still a real Cumbrian gem and not a tourist honeypot but it is obviously a matter of taste! Keswick is 20 minutes away. Someone should standardise the recycling rules around the UK we agree. There are instructions in the cottage about the recycling facilities.

    Details

    Southwaite Green is a development of 4 properties that were developed in 2007 by the owner, who lives on site, to an extremely high standard. Local craftsmen, local timber and stone from the site have retained the traditional character including recycling original beams from the barn. The cottages have used green design and technologies with ground and air source heat pumps to power the under-floor heating beneath the slate and oak floors. Solar panels generate both electricity and hot water. Great attention to detail has been paid to ensure that these are eco-friendly properties, including organic bedding and towels, hand-made furniture from sustainable sources, and 10 acres of organically maintained grounds. The owner has gone to great trouble to ensure the properties have a low carbon foot-print and to ensure your holiday is an enjoyable and memorable experience.

    The development briefly comprises two, 2-bedroom/2 shower en suite cottages, Skiddaw and Esther’s Barn. Buttermere is a ground floor 2-bedroom cottage which is specially adapted for disabled use with mobility 1 and 2 rating and Beckside is a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom house. The properties have been given the much acclaimed Gold Award from the Green Tourism Scheme as well as 5 stars from VisitEngland.
    Situated in the Vale of Lorton, with Cockermouth and Lorton both 2 miles away, Keswick is 9 miles to the east, and within a short drive are the less frequented western lakes - Crummock, Loweswater, Buttermere and Ennerdale. There are ample walking and cycling opportunities from the door and a wealth of independent shops and restaurants can be found in both Cockermouth and Keswick.

    The properties sit on Paddle Beck with young woodland, wildflower meadows, pond and arboretum in the grounds. It is a great place for wildlife including deer, foxes, red squirrels, brown hare, badgers and many bird species including the occasional kingfisher.
