    About this property

    A single storey converted stable with woodburner and period features located at the end of a farm track alongside three other charming cottages.
    Surrounded by dramatic scenery. Surrounded by dramatic scenery. Featuring beams taken from shipwrecks on the Cumbrian Coast, this small group of holiday cottages at Birkerthwaite, a former 17th century Lakeland farmstead, lie at the end of an unmade track and are surrounded by tranquil moorland scenery and farmland. This is fantastic walking countryside and the elevated position gives views of Scafell and the Eskdale Valley, creating a unique atmosphere of tranquillity. Birkerthwaite Farmhouse (W43001) is a unique holiday property dating back to 1627 and has many original features, beamed ceilings, flagged floors and unusual oak wall cupboards built in the 1700’s. Comfortably furnished and with the benefit of an open fire and an Aga, the farmhouse is cosy and welcoming. Birkerthwaite Stable (W41477) is a single-storey converted stable with rustic charm heated by a log-burning stove. Birkerthwaite Barn (W41478) has a spacious kitchen/dining room, a galleried landing and a four poster bed. Birkerthwaite Cottage (W41479) has an upstairs open plan living area with wooden floors which opens onto a balcony overlooking gardens. Nearby attractions include Muncaster Castle and Hardknott Roman Fort, whilst the Langdale Pikes and Ambleside on the northern shores of Lake Windermere can be reached via a stunning drive over the Hard Knott and Wrynose Passes. A short drive away is Wast Water; to the west are sandy beaches. Alternatively take the steam train from Ravenglass. Shop 3 miles, pub 2.5 miles.

    "We loved it."
    Karen ‐ 21 Aug 2018
    "Great place to stay for walkers, with excellent pubs within easy drive. Would definitely stay here again."

    "This was our 3rd year in a row staying at the stable and we've just booked it again for next year. So that probably says it all. It's a fabulously peaceful place to stay in the most stunning scenery you're likely to find anywhere. It is very remote (which is why we love it) so you need to be organised with food etc (Tescos deliver). The walking in the area is as challenging as you want and you have a wonderfully cosey cottage with amazing views (Scafell, Pillar, Kirl Fell etc) to come back to at the end of the day. What more could you want?"

    "A fantastic secluded location, we loved every second and will be back. The only thing to better it would be a shower curtain to stop the flood when trying to shower without one."
    Kathryn ‐ 22 Apr 2018
    "Location was brilliant for what we wanted to do on this holiday which was walking. We felt the interior of the cottage was very dated and tied and could do with a refurbishment it also could have been cleaner."

    "Had another lovely stay, fire was lit on arrival and the cottage was cosy and warm, weather was great (mostly) but I was disappointed by the unclean floors especially in the lounge and kitchen area - they had not been washed. Couldn't get the DVD player to work on the one day when the weather was not too pleasant! But overall a lovely peaceful place to stay."

    "Great place to stay, can't wait to go back. The only down side of it there was a draft in the bedroom maybe coming from the top window and made it cold, even with the fire raging and the radiator not getting hot enough. Will bring an electric heater next time. Lovely location, enjoyed every minute of it"

    "Lovely cosy cottage, loved the isolation, and the roaring fire. Beautiful scenery. Walked for miles. Will visit again x"
    XRIS ‐ 4 Jan 2018
    "Really enjoyed the remote location, fire was burning nicely on arrival, was a little tricky to keep warm thereafter. Could have done with some instructions to use the cooker, but managed to work it out. The location is very quiet and the walks amazing. Would go again, but in car that can handle the very remote roads."
