The property

Located in the Lake District National Park, in the hamlet of Brandlingill, The Byre is a pet friendly, generously proportioned 3 bedroomed cottage. Situated in a courtyard setting, The Byre (and Tithe Cottage which sits adjacent to it) is fully equipped, spacious and provideseverything you need for a holiday break. There is a shared outdoor communal garden space which is easily accessible from the cottage, located close to the stable area. It is set in an orchard area and offers a tranquil space to appreciate the rural peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside. Please note that the garden area is not directly attached to the holiday cottage. The Byre is part of a barn conversion offering a cosy but delightful space with all the usual modern amenities you would expect to find in a self-catering cottage. One pet (possibly two depending on breed) is accepted at this property. The downstairs area gives guests a separate lounge with a kitchen cum dining area suitable to seat 6. There is the added facility of a shower and toilet downstairs. Upstairs, the 3 bedrooms (1 double and 2 twin) are airy and light along with a main family bathroom. The cottage offers a great base to explore the Western Lakes with easy access to Cockermouth and Keswick for all your local amenities, cafes and shopping. Bassenthwaite Lake, Buttermere, Loweswater , Derwent Water, Ennerdale and Whinlatter Forest are but a short distance away with the beach towns of St Bees and Silloth, a little further afield. With local wildlife of red squirrels, badgers, deer and birds to appreciate combined with little light pollution offering the star gazer some great night skies, there is plenty on offer! So, if you are after a bit of relaxation and want to simply enjoy the beautiful mountain and lakeland scenery or if you are preferring something more adventurous – bagging some of those Wainwrights or cycling the mountain passes or the freedom of open water swimming, paddle-boarding/ sailing/canoeing then The Byre offers a wonderful base to do it all. The Byre can be booked along with Tithe Cottage (property reference 972481) next door to sleep a total of 12 people.

About the location


Bassenthwaite Lake 7 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

The small country market town of Cockermouth is situated in the quiet north-western part of the Lake District, a largely undiscovered and unspoilt area, yet only 13 miles from Keswick. The town is famous as the birthplace of both William Wordsworth and Fletcher Christian (of Mutiny on the Bounty fame) and Wordsworth’s Georgian family home, on the main street, is now a popular visitor attraction, owned by the National Trust. Cockermouth offers a good variety of shops, pubs and places to eat, but (of course) the main attraction of the area is the beautiful scenery and excellent walking in the northern lakes – Bassenthwaite Lake, Ennerdale Water and Derwent Water.
