    “Very Friendly welcome with Cake, milk and eggs from the owners own hens.”

    Cottage was very spacious, well equipped, very peaceful. A good location for exploring the North Lakes but also not too far to travel to the South Lakes.

The property

Bassenthwaite 10.5 miles. Nestled in the tiny picturesque village of Crookdake, only a few miles from the fells and lakes, is this superb cottage, Bramblewood Cottage. An ideal base to explore the Western Lake District and all the beautiful Cumbrian Fells have to offer. The lovely towns of Keswick and Cockermouth are only a short drive away. Set over two floors and sleeping up to two guests, Bramblewood Cottage is a spacious, yet cosy cottage. It benefits from an enclosed garden with countryside views and easy access to the Solway Coast. This cottage is set in the owner’s 2 acre garden, surrounded by trees and fields. This idyllic location is quiet and unspoilt, with stunning views of the surrounding fields and trees. The cottage is set in an old orchard with stunning blossom and an abundance of apples, plums, cherries and pears. In the late winter and spring, a carpet of snowdrops and spring flowers light up the grass surrounding the cottage. Free range chickens wander past the cottage and free range eggs are left as a welcome gift when the hens are laying. At certain points of the year, Lambs and calves can be seen in the surrounding fields. A wealth of wildlife can be enjoyed including a range of gardens birds, local moorhens, rabbits, hares, hedgehogs and if you’re very lucky, a red squirrel!. Parking next to the property is available for two cars. The kitchen/ diner is light and spacious, with ample cupboard space. There is an excellent double Range-master gas cooker to use, which alongside the smoothie maker, slow cooker and well-equipped dishes and utensils make this a foodie’s dream! Completing the ground floor is a handy cloakroom and small laundry room with washing machine, airer and iron/ironing board. Climb the stairs to the first floor, where you will find a generous sitting room, equipped with comfy chairs and sofas and a large TV. The mini library gives you a generous selection of books which guests can take home in exchange for a book they have loved to read! Games and jigsaw puzzles can also be enjoyed. The king size bed has an excellent sprung mattress with inbuilt memory foam topper. Curtains have black out linings, helping aid a good night’s sleep. This secluded location will get you into the fresh air, away from traffic and light pollution into the beautiful quiet countryside.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Keswick 8 miles; Cockermouth 9 miles.

An attractive village in the Northern Lakes, Bassenthwaite lies just a short distance to the north east of Bassenthwaite Lake, and retains its traditional rural feel, with a stream flowing gently on the outskirts, whitewashed Lakeland cottages, a pleasant vllage green and a real ale inn full of character! Bassenthwaite Lake itself, while boasting gentler scenery than others in the region, is still one of the most picturesque places in England. Places of interest nearby include Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the Lake with small open-air theatre (reputedly frequented by poets such as Tennyson and Wordsworth), Lake District Wildlife Park, and Dodd Wood. Most of the attractions of the Lake District are within easy reach and the quieter Northern Fells are almost on the doorstep. The nearby towns of Cockermouth and Keswick, both have weekly markets and offer a good range of amenities. The scenery of the Yorkshire Dales is within touring distance, as is the city of Carlisle and Hadrians Wall country.
