Seathwaite Cottages

In the quiet and picturesque rural village of Seathwaite, within the remote and idyllic Duddon Valley, rest this charming pair of traditional stone-built cottages. Each cottage boasts Lake District character with exposed beams and large woodburning stoves yet guests will find beautiful and contemporary country touches which ensure that their stay will be as stylish as it will be relaxing. Seathwaite cottages make the perfect base for a countryside escape and provide a delightful space for families, couples and even their four-legged friends to relax in comfort. Together they offer accommodation for eight guests and one child, with four bedrooms and four bathrooms between the two cottages, ideal for large families or groups of friends. Each of the lovely properties benefit from an enclosed garden/courtyard, where you can sit, unwind and appreciate the magnificent panoramic views of the fells which surround you as well as listening to the sound of the River Duddon running by. Seathwaite cottages are a great base for exploring the delights of Cumbria; walking leaflets in the cottages detail at least nine walks from the door of varying lengths in addition to others within the Duddon Valley, including Harter Fell, Seathwaite Tarn, Caw Fell and Dow Crag. A little further afield in neighbouring valleys lie the delights of the Langdale Pikes, Scafell and Old Man of Coniston. The cottages also lie on the Lakes and Dales cycle route, and cycle storage is provided for two bicycles in each cottage The local country pub of The Newfield Inn, which also sells essential groceries, is under a mile away and serves traditional home cooked food and local ales from 9am to 9pm, including breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea. Approximately six miles away is the unspoilt village of Broughton-in-Furness, home to a cobbled square surrounded by Georgian coloured houses and provides all the essentials with a deli, butchers, grocers, bakery, post office, a petrol station and cafe as well as three further traditional Lakeland pubs.
