Skiddaw Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This charming terraced Grade II listed Bassenthwaite cottage enjoys views down the valley to Bassenthwaite Lake with the backdrop of Skiddaw and Ullock Pike, perfect for catching the sunset. The cottage sleeps four people and has a double and a twin room, a family bathroom and downstairs, an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Outside is ample off road parking and shared grounds including a play area and game room. Skiddaw is within easy reach of lakes, villages, climbing, walking and more.

Situated just a short distance to the north east of Bassenthwaite Lake is the attractive village of Bassenthwaite itself. This charming settlement retains its traditional, rural feel and boasts a stream which winds through the outskirts of the village in addition to whitewashed Lakeland cottages, a well-maintained green and a real ale inn, full of character. Bassenthwaite Lake offers rolling hillside scenery and remains one of the most picturesque places in England. Points of interest nearby include Mirehouse - a grand home and gardens on the shores of the Lake - Trotters Farm, and Dodd Wood. Most of the attractions of the wider region are within easy driving distance whilst the quieter Northern Fells are almost on the doorstep. The towns of Cockermouth and Keswick and close by and both host weekly markets and a good range of other amenities.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

It is in a great location for walking several Wainwrights. The cottage has plenty of character and is in a very peaceful location.

The cottage 'Skiddaw' oozes the charm and cosiness that one could hope for as a getaway destination for Christmas. Walking in, one could really leave any chaos behind and settle in for a calming and restful stay. The cottage however does provide an excellent location to explore the heart of the Lake District and should you feel up for it, walks for all abilities.

The location is excellent for the Northern Lakes and has stunning views from the property. The overall site is well maintained plus has a large stock of DVDs and videos, and a games room to keep one entertained for when the weather is not so good.

The silence and the fact that there was a hallway to hang wet clothes and dry off muddy boots.

The cottage was of a high standard throughout and was far enough removed, yet still within easy access of Keswick and the northern Lakes. We would recommend the cottages (actually, we've already done so) and would be happy to return.
