    “Riverside cottage and Duddon valley did not disappoint in anyway.”

    There is a peacefulness and tranquillity every where you walk & coming back to Riverside cottage was a perfect ending to our days- beautiful & tastefully furnished giving a warm & comfortable place to enjoy even more tranquility. The attention to detail in all communication could not be faulted, even with the owners calling us to check all was ok as the previous review mentioned a problem with the shower. We applaud your transformation of the cottage and in providing such a beautiful holiday ...

    There is a peacefulness and tranquillity every where you walk & coming back to Riverside cottage was a perfect ending to our days- beautiful & tastefully furnished giving a warm & comfortable place to enjoy even more tranquility. The attention to detail in all communication could not be faulted, even with the owners calling us to check all was ok as the previous review mentioned a problem with the shower. We applaud your transformation of the cottage and in providing such a beautiful holiday home. The folders with all the walks were incredibly helpful- we would recommend them as well as the local pub the New Inn which we frequented regularly with the dog!! Thank you

The property

Riverside is a charming white-washed cottage that boasts wonderful mountain vistas of the Lake District National Park, and footpaths right from your door.

Riverside Cottage is a lovely and peaceful Lakeland cottage ideal for couples, friends, and families alike.

Park your car in the secluded area within the cart shed and take in the beautiful views of Cawfell and Stickle Pike in front of you.

Step inside through the stone-built porch to find rustic, exposed beams, an original flagstone slate floor, and a toasty woodburning stove.

The open-plan living area is bright and airy, with spectacular views of Caw Fell from both the sofas and the broad window seat.

When it's time to unwind, there's cushioned seating for five guests, a Smart TV, DVD player, superfast WiFi, and a large library of over 200 books, 100 DVDs, and games for all ages.

The pleasant dining room, adjacent to the lounge, has a cast iron fireplace and seating for six people, as well as more of those stunning views of Caw Fell to appreciate as you dine.

Riverside's open-plan kitchen has been completely remodelled to a high quality and features contemporary conveniences such as an electric range, oven, dishwasher, microwave, and a huge fridge/freezer.

More seating is well positioned beside the French doors that lead out to the rear yard, offering uninterrupted views of the river and fells beyond; a lovely location to watch the world go by.

On sunny days and evenings, you may sit on the chairs in the private garden and savour the breathtaking views of the fells that encircle you, as well as the sounds of the charming river Duddon.

Back inside, the understairs cupboard hosts a washing machine and handy storage for up to two bicycles.

On the first floor, there is an amazing bathroom with a magnificent roll-top bath, ideal for a luxurious soak amidst the bubbles, and further fell views to relish while you lie in the bath.

Alternatively, you may use the excellent shower room, which has a walk-in shower and a second WC.

In the evening, you can decide between a king-size bedroom and a twin bedroom with magnificent 3' single beds (which can be a super-king-size bed on request).

There is also a pull out bed in the twin room that is ideal for a youngster, allowing the cottage to sleep up to four adults and one child.

Each bedroom is tastefully decorated with timber furnishings and cast iron fireplaces, preserving the property's unique character.

Each bedroom has lovely views of Caw Fell from the beds, which may be appreciated while having a warm cup of morning tea/coffee or as you lounge on the exquisitely built wooden window seats. For a stay in the Lakes to remember, choose Riverside Cottage.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref 1077656, together sleeping up to eight adults and a child.

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, Riverside Cottage (ref: 1077673) and Duddon View (ref: 1077656). Bookable together or individually, 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.
