A couple of miles from the northern tip of Windermere, this bright and unique holiday cottage makes a soothing retreat for a family exploring the Lake District. Surrounded by stunning views, this idyllic getaway offers light and stylish accommodation for six guests. This spacious and relaxing property overlooks the majestic Great Langdale Valley and is within easy reach of some quaint Lakeland villages. With Scafell Pike, Ullswater and Thirlmere to the north, and Coniston Water and Esthwaite Water to the south, the cottage is a wonderful base for walkers, climbers and cyclists.

The refreshing and inviting lounge/diner provides an ideal living space, featuring a welcoming wood burner, exposed ceiling beams, deep bay windows and tiled flooring as well as a traditional dining area perfect for sharing a family meal. The cottage also offers a stylish kitchen and a fresh, light-filled conservatory. Three comfortable and tastefully decorated bedrooms can be found on the first floor, all with beautiful rural views. Doors open from the conservatory onto a raised deck with plenty of outdoor furniture, perfect for al fresco dining or a glass of wine as you take in the picturesque views. Extensive grounds mean there’s plenty of space for children to play.

The property can be found in Skelwith Bridge, a small cluster of traditional cottages set around a stone bridge over the River Brathay, close to the Skelwith Force waterfall. To the east is the charming town of Ambleside (2.5 miles), with the thriving village of Coniston to the south-west (5.5 miles). Destinations for local walks include Loughrigg Fell (1.5 miles) and Grasmere (3 miles). Windermere is a great location for water sports, ferry trips and spectacular lakeside walks. Also nearby there’s the Beatrix Potter Gallery in Hawkshead, Claife Heights and The Old Man of Coniston (all within 11 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

On arrival we had a major problem with the lack of cleanliness of the house, which we as a family corrected! After that we were able to enjoy, Carr Cottage, which is a really beautiful, warm, comfortable and cosy cottage, with spectacular views, somewhere I would definitely want to revisit!

We love this house and its position and we come back year after year. Its perfect but its now looking tired. The main bathroom shower was broken so the whole family had to use the ensuite for two weeks. The house smelled of dog when we arrived and we had to clean the windows to remove dog smudges & also the dog dirt. There is apparently a right of Read moreway through the private garden for the neighbours and their guests walked straight through the garden at 12.30 in the morning much to our shock. Hide

Lovely cottage in great location. The facilities were good just needs bit more attention to garden and for dog owners to not allow their dogs on sofas/ more in depth cleaning between rentals. Some great walks available from the cottage which include some nice cafes and pubs on route.

Excellent location for many of the attractions of the Lakes. Quiet and secluded, but less than 10 mins from very well stocked store. Lovely views from the front of house and master bedroom, we saw deer and a red squirrel in the garden.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
