Glen Cottage ia a luxury ground floor barn conversion with beams, fell views and cosy wood burning stove to cuddle up to and is sure to appeal to couples looking for a holiday cottage in one of the most sought after locations in the Lake District.

Greenbank Farm is no longer a working farm and now comprises three holiday cottages, recently converted and extended to provide spacious, contemporary style accommodation of the highest standard. Winning the Visit Britain 4 star Gold award, 4 star Gold Beckwood sleeps up to 8 and Glen Cottage sleeps 2. The owner has used her wealth of experience of the self catering market to provide everything you could wish for in a holiday cottage. Together with superb views to Blencathra to the north, Great Mell Fell to the south and within 5 miles of Ullswater, this makes these cottages highly sought after by the discerning Lake District enthusiast.

The cottages sit within 14 acres of grounds adjacent to Rookin House Farm Activity Centre, where an enjoyable afternoon can be spent pony trekking, or for those feeling more energetic cycling opportunities lead from your door to Ullswater 5 miles south.

With easy access both to the M6 and the A66, Penrith is 10 minutes, Keswick 15 minutes or a 30 minute scenic route alongside the lake and over Kirkstone Pass will bring you to Ambleside. All making this an ideal location to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding countryside or to explore the northern lakes.
