  • “Superb location for walking and getting in to Keswick, which we did by bike.”

    The accommodation was spacious and very pleasantly decorated.

    The accommodation was spacious and very pleasantly decorated. There is a residential adventure centre behind the property which happened to have students aged around 10/11 staying. They were perfectly well behaved but noisy! We understand this is not a frequent occurrence but something to be aware of. The garden at the back is shared and open. Perhaps owing to Covid restrictions there was very little in the way of local information in the cottage which is something we appreciate.

The property

Nestling in the Newlands Valley this beautifully furnished and romantic Cumbrian cottage, with a roll top bath in the bedroom, is the perfect retreat from which to explore the Lakes and take in the breathtaking scenery the area has to offer. Clairgarth enjoys a delightful rural setting at the foot of Catbells with superb views over the Newlands Valley to Causey Pike.

The cottage sits in a row of 5 on the outskirts of Stair in the Newlands Valley, close to Keswick, renowned for its association with Beatrix Potter.

The winding country lanes offer walking and cycling opportunities and, for the more energetic, the nearby Fells of Catbells, High Crags and Swinside beckon.

Water pursuits at nearby Derwentwater, with equipment available to hire in Portinscale, one mile north, make this an ideal location for those who enjoy an active lifestyle.
