    “Fiona, John and Taymar made our holiday complete.”

    A great experience we will never forget. An unspoilt area of the Lakes that we prefer. Jack our collie had a great time to. We will return.

The property

A cosy first floor barn conversion, situated on a thriving farm in the Newlands Valley, five miles from the hamlet of Keswick.

Commanding stunning vistas across the valley, this premier cottage benefits from being situated in an awe-inspiring location with lots of surrounding fells, making it a superb base for ramblers or those simply wanting a taste of this beautiful area.

As soon as you enter this Lakeland cottage you will notice the high quality renovations, packed with character and style while still retaining many of the barns traditional features through the original window reveals and old beams.

The snug sitting room area welcomes your return after a tiring day of exploring, complete with an alluring woodburner and set of leather sofas.

The contemporary kitchen is fitted with integrated appliances and feature windows, offering you a well-equipped setup that benefits from stunning fell views.

The two bedrooms in the Hayloft are positioned at either end of the open plan living area and both contain super king-size beds with en-suite facilities, enhancing the quality of your stay.

Stepping out of the cottage you are faced with Lake District at your doorstep, offering miles of unspoilt countryside that can even be explored alongside your dog!

The village of Braithwaite can be reached in a short 2 mile journey, by car or foot - if you’re feeling adventurous - and offers traditional old pubs and village shops for everyday essentials.

Further afield rests the unspoilt hamlet of Keswick with its attractions such as Pencil Museum and its connections with Beatrix Potter.

Book this serene hideaway for your next escape to the Lake District.

About the location


Keswick 5 miles.

Newlands is a classic unspoilt hamlet in the farming Newlands Valley, and an historic route over the pass (hause) into Buttermere. Farms are scattered throughout the valley with Stair and Little Town being the main settlements. The Newlands Valley is an excellent base for a walking holiday, with a huge variety of walking routes, including low level valley walks, ridge walks and fell walks. The area is also well known for its links with Beatrix Potter; “The Tale of Mrs Tiggywinkle'' uses the Newlands Valley as its backdrop and Catbells, Skelgill and Little Town can all be recognised from her sketches. Nearby, the small village of Braithwaite retains much of its traditional appeal, with the Coledale Beck running through the village with its whitewashed cottages, two shops and two real ale inns. Nearby, Bassenthwaite Lake is one of the most picturesque places in England. Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the lake with an open-air theatre is well worth a visit, along with Trotters Farm and Dodd Wood. Derwentwater, and Keswick with its wide range of attractions, are also within easy reach.
