Surprise View description

Holiday home
Surprise View is a welcoming terraced cottage on a working farm a mile from Ravenglass. There is a ground floor super king-size double bedroom, which can be offered as a twin on request, with a sofabed and an en-suite shower room. Upstairs is an open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburner. Outside there is use of shared mature gardens, and off road parking for two cars. With the National Park, narrow gauge railway and Muncaster Castle all within easy reach, Surprise View makes an ideal base for a couple, friends and walkers alike.

The village of Ravenglass is on the edge of the Lake District National Park, and is a coastal village, once a regular smuggling base. From Ravenglass it is easy to enjoy the National Park, the Ravenglass to Eskdale Railway, Muncaster Castle and the beauty of the surrounding lakes and mountains.

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 was peaceful, well maintained and within easy driving distance to all of the Lake District.
Miss Winter

We loved how tucked away the location was, yet at the same time it is only a moments drive to some pretty spectacular lakes and historic landmarks. It suited our hiking plans and the dog to a tee. It was quiet, cosy and relaxing and the hosts were very considerate.

The cottage was a lovely place to return to after a day of work. The downstairs bedroom was very quiet and I slept very soundly.

Quiet and remote, a perfect getaway.
Mr Eldon
March 2015
A completely relaxing holiday amid a working farm environment, although this wasn't reflected in the amount of noise and disturbance evident. It was a peaceful and very tranquil setting. The owner was extremely sociable and helpful. As usual a very nice holiday, may return.
Mr Atkinson

Loved the sights and sounds of being on a working farm - the cows, bull, sheep, and the farmer hard at work all hours of the day! Loved the view from the cottage and loved exploring the western lake/coast area. Loved returning to a comfy bed and good shower.
Mrs Rynham

The owners were very good, providing homely touches to the cottage. Lovely views and very quiet, just what we asked for.

The cottage was very comfortable and 'cosy'. The location was great and the views were beautiful. A peaceful and relaxing location.
Mrs Hill
June 2014
The view and location was perfect. The wood burner was a lovely addition to a clean, well furnished, comfy cottage. The owner was friendly and chatty.
Mrs Bonnefina

Very quiet and peaceful, just what we needed.
Mr Budden

The location of the cottage provided good access to Eskdale and surrounds. We liked the views afforded by having the living room upstairs.

Comfortable accommodation enhanced by the proximity of Ravenglass and the coast.
