    About this property

    A spacious converted farm building featuring galleried landing and four poster bed. Lovely rural retreat for two with views of tranquil moorland.
    Surrounded by dramatic scenery. Four poster bed. 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.

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.

    "A lovely cottage, nice and remote but a short drive or walk into Eskdale or Boot.Could only get BBC perhaps a sky box and new garden furniture. Would definitely return."

    "Another lovely week at Birkerthwaite. So nice to have no internet or mobile network and just chill. Everything we needed was there. Great, peaceful location."
    Andrea ‐ 24 Mar 2018
    "The only reason I gave a 9 for “comfort and equipment” is because I think beds can always be better, however everything was great. Exactly as described. In fact we found the place to be bigger than we though, which was wonderful. The location is remote and a perfect spot to set out from for walks. Directions to eat there were easy to follow even though we arrived after dark. Thanks! We had a lovely time and would recommend this cottage to future ramblers seeking a bit of solitude away from the workaday work anytime."
