Personally maintained by the Cumbrian owners living in the same hamlet, these 19thC farm buildings have been converted into high standard character cottages, beautifully appointed with full gas central heating with thermostatically controlled radiators. There are also living gas flame fires in the lounges, in all making them very cosy for all the year round.

Enjoy the ambience of these very comfortable cottages where there are books of local and other interests to read. We are ideally situated for the lakes and coast and all the restaurants, bars etc in nearby Whitehaven, with its 250 listed buildings and yachting marina and lovely old harbour. There are walks to suit all abilities from nice gentle strolls to strenuous hard walks on the fells. We are within 0.25 mile of the C2C, Coast to Coast, Whitehaven to Sunderland and the Reivers cycle route, Whitehaven to Tynemouth.

It is possible to take boat trips from Whitehaven to see the sea wild life.

Ideal for bird watching, including a large variety of seabirds. RSPB reserve 4 miles away.

Rosehill Theatre is 0.5 mile away. Golf course, swimming pool, sports centre within 2 miles. Various attractions, some of which are free.

Discounts for fortnights.
