This elegant garden apartment, surrounded by spectacular mountainous scenery, sleeps four guests, making it perfect for a couples’ retreat or small family getaway. The beautiful property is just 1.5 miles from the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake, where you’ll find calm waterside walks, secluded shingle beaches and a state-of-the-art distillery and bistro.

The ground-floor apartment has elegance and style in abundance. Enter via the conservatory – a fabulous spot to curl up with a book overlooking the garden – and into the spacious lounge/diner. This gorgeous area really makes the most of the period features, with striking exposed beams adorning the ceiling. In the corner, a wood burner crackles, and soft lighting creates a peaceful ambience; pour yourself a glass of wine and sink into the plush sofas or relax in the window seat. At the end of the day, retreat to one of the two gorgeous bedrooms, one of which is accessed via three steps down. Outside, explore the extensive shared grounds, comprising lawns, terraces, an unfenced pond and a small stream.

The property sits in the shadow of Skiddaw, one of England’s highest mountains. If you’re feeling adventurous, pull on your walking boots and climb the 931 metres to the summit. The views from the top are some of the best in all the north-western lakes and on a clear day, you can see the Isle of Man and the hills of Galloway. Beautiful Bassenthwaite Lake is one of the area’s quieter bodies of water and also one of the shallowest, making it perfect for wild swimming. Pack a picnic and find your own little beach – which you’ll likely have all to yourself – and spend an unforgettable day splashing in and out of the water and soaking up the serenity of this spectacular beauty spot.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Wonderful location and fantastically equipped holiday rental. Views from property grounds are the best in the lake district. Ideal location for MTB, hiking and fishing all without using the car.

Everyone mentions the fantastic views, and quite right too, as sitting on the benches in various parts of the well maintained garden is a highlight of the property.

A nice quite, spacious and well fitted-out property in a very pleasant location. While the view from the communal garden is amazing, as the property is round the side of the main building, the view from inside (and natural light) are a little limited.

We had a lovely stay and this place is ideally located for the Carl Side route up Skiddaw and easy access to lots of other lakes and highlights. The cottage is well appointed, in particular the kitchen and there was everything we needed. Comfy beds and lots of places to sit and relax after a busy day exploring. The one thing that was not clear to uRead mores was that we had misunderstood that this was an annex to one main house inhabited by a family but actually it is one of many cottages and apartments.

This was our second time at Garth Cottage and we stayed for 2 weeks this time with our 6 month baby and the grandparents. Its such a wonderful place in terms of location and style and we felt very comfortable there. There are a couple of little things that need a bit of maintenance. Well be back again in the future.

Garth Cottage is in a spectacular place and is a beautiful property. We loved our visit and would go back in a heartbeat. The grounds of the house are wonderful. It's like having a self-catering flat at a superb country house hotel. We had a wood fire in the lovely stove every night and enjoyed snuggling into the big sofas in front of it.

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.
