    “A well presented and well equipped cottage in a location that was very convenient for the NE Lakes and coast - we had lovely weather all week, which helped as we explored the coast above Maryport, plus Ullswater, Buttermere and Derwent Water, as well as a trip on the Ravenglass-Eskdale railway.”

    The osprey chicks had just hatched, too ! The mobile phone signal was fine, so made up for the lack of specific wi-fi because we could hot-spot our laptops and we weren't around enough to worry about the sitting area being separated from the property. But be warned if you have mobility issues and need to use the bathroom at night that there are three steps down and three narrow steps up between the bedrooms and the bathroom - there is a grab rail to assist.

The property

Dash Cottage is a delightful and cosy Cumbrian cottage situated within the Lake District National Park.

It is perfectly placed to enjoy the fantastic scenery of the western and northern Lake District and coast. Dash Cottage is a 19th century terraced holiday cottage situated in the charming rural village of Embleton, which is situated between the popular bustling Lakeland town of Keswick and the Georgian market town of Cockermouth, the birth place of William Wordsworth.

The surrounding scenery is stunning, you can enjoy the fresh air of the Lake District whilst walking, hiking, cycling, playing golf, exploring or simply relaxing.

The less frequented vale of Lorton, Buttermere, Crummock Water, Ennerdale and Loweswater are all within a short drive, Dash Cottage certainly is a wonderful base from which to explore the northern and western Lakes. A warm welcome awaits you at this lovely Lakeland cottage, a charming retreat from which to explore the whole of the Lake District.

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.
