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.

    “Best accommodation I have ever stayed in!”

    Self-catering, so no service, but friendly owner. Excellent quiet location in attractive countryside near the mountains and lakes, but only two miles from shops and other facilirties at Cockermouth, a delightful little town that is not overrun with holiday-makers. Beautifully maintained gardens, patios, and very private cottages. Not cheap, but well worth the money! (and lovely weather thrown in free!) And very environmentally friendly as well.
    We were a large family group, ranging from 6 to 85, staying in two of the four cottages, and we all enjoyed our stay a lot!
    I would rate these cottages at 6 stars if I was allowed to!
