  • We guarantee you the best price

    Our cottages are professionally managed by our partners and payments are taken by them, but rest assured, by booking via Snaptrip you'll pay the lowest possible price for your trip.

    We never charge you more than you would pay booking directly on the partner's site and if you become a Snaptrip member you can save even more. If you find a property priced lower anywhere else on the internet (we’d be amazed if you do), simply email us at marketing@snaptrip.com and we'll refund you the difference.

Stunning views over Lake Windermere towards Great Langdale can be seen on the single track approach, with wonderful local walks direct from the doorstep. Bellman Houses have been owned for three successive generations by the same family, and their sympathetic extensive restoration over the years, using traditional methods and materials reflect the local custom and heritage evident today. The Main House (ref 30863) sleeps 6/7, and is a 16th-century, Grade II listed former farmhouse that retains many original features with timber walls, flagstone floors, beamed ceilings, original fireplaces and the original oak panelling between the bedrooms. The Cottage (ref 30864) sleeps 3 and has stunning, rural views from almost every room. Fell View Cottage with its cosy wood burner and super kingsize four poster bed is ideal for a romantic breakaway. On the site can be found a wonderful example of a spinning gallery in the traditional ’Bank Barn’, one of only a handful of surviving examples in the UK. Beach 12 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles. The Main House (ref 30863) and The Cottage (ref 30864) have an interconnecting door and can be booked together to accommodate up to 11 guests.

    "Excellent all round Many thanksIan"

    "The contact personne is really nice and helpful. The house is a wonderful old lady and the view from the garden is splendid. The location is perfect and ideal to walk through the lakes footpaths.Unfortunately, the bed are not comfortable enough to make nights repair days walks !!!Equipment is enough. Sadly, the fridge is way too small to have 5 or 6 people. So a few improvements could transform this house in heaven on earth."

    "Fantastic Cottage [well more a house] interesting building, well furnished and equipped. Amazing views from the property and such a great place to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the Lake District and yet be right on top of the amenities. Highly recommend"
