    About this property

    Lovely location with large south facing gardens and adjoining woodland, an open fire and excellent facilities makes this an ideal holiday choice.
    S84833 was built at the turn of the 20th Century as one of a pair of cottages for Overwater Hall. This three bedroomed semi detached cottage has so much to offer as a delightful holiday retreat. With stunning views towards Skiddaw from most rooms, large south facing cottage garden and adjoining woodland. S84833 is perfect for adults and children alike, with space to relax and play.

    Situated three miles north east of Bassenthwaite lake, the area is perfect for walking, cycling and relaxing. The Reiver cycleway passes the cottage. Two bridleways lead alongside to Binsey Fell, Skiddaw and the Cumbrian Way. Overwater tarn is just a two minute walk. Within half an hours walk from S84833 there is the Sun Inn in Bassenthwaite village and the Snooty Fox and Mae’s Tearoom and Gallery in Uldale serving good food. Overwater Hall Hotel with its first class restaurant (serving coffee, light lunches, teas and dinners) is a two minute walk.

    With an abundance of bird life, the occasional red squirrel and deer, S84833 enjoys a truly tranquil location.

    Nearby there is sailing on Bassenthwaite Lake, Lake District Wildlife Park, Mirehouse Historic House Gardens and Osprey viewpoint. The Castle Inn Hotel and Armathwaite Hall Hotel are within three miles and between them offer spa treatments, spa days and outdoor pursuit activities, such as clay pigeon shooting and quad biking. Nearby Whinlatter Forest offers several trails and the Go Ape experience.

    "This was the third year running we've stayed at the cottage. The twin room downstairs is perfect for my mum who struggles with stairs. It's so peaceful, with only one neighbour. Red squirrels, woodpeckers and numerous other birds visit the garden daily. It's a very homely cottage. The woods at the side are perfect for the kids to name dens and go bug hunting. There are plenty of walks from the cottage and places to visit within a short drive."

    "Very nice holiday at S84833. Great view and nice house. Would recommend.No mobile phone signal and v limited WiFi but not an issue for us (they supply a phone in the house and you do get signal 5 mins away). Great location for walking and easy drive to other parts of the lakes."

    "The Cottage and the views were excellent and we loved our stay there. The only reason we cannot return is my mother has difficulty in walking and found it hard negotiating around the property but apart from this we like to thank you for a lovely stay."

    "wonderful location & property, great wildlife. Real shame that this property has moved to a Friday changeover as for people of working age this eats into 2 weeks of holiday time also state of the M6 makes Friday traveling in both directions a real nightmare. Will have to think very hard about returning if it remains on Friday changeover."
