About the property

A one-bedroom cottage, centrally heated, rural setting in Western Lake District

Garden Cottage is a converted 18th centuary barn adjoining the owner's garden. Very comfortable and roomy, tastefully furnished and with excellent modern facilities, it is situated in the quiet hamlet of Pardshaw Hall just outside the Lake District National Park. The colourful garden and open fields opposite are seen through the front windows, and a few metres along the single-track road is the entrance to Pardshaw Crag, a delightful limestone hill where stunning views are awarded of the Western Lake District mountains and across the Solway Firth to the Scottish hills. Nestling at the foot of the Crag is the historic Quaker Meeting House and School Room where the world famous physicist John Dalton taught before going on to achieve his great discoveries.

Visitors to Garden cottage during cooler times of the year will have cosy central heating supplied by the very energy efficient air-source heat-pump, There is reliable WiFi with a speed of around 14Mbs, and lots of books, DVDs etc. available in the lounge.

Cyclists can store their bikes securely and there are many quiet lanes, bridleways and fell-paths close by that give wonderful biking and walking, summer and winter. The Whinlatter Forest is a short drive away with good biking and walking trails. Loweswater, the nearest lake and one of the quietest in the Lake District is about a 10 minute drive away as is the designated "Gem" town of Cockermouth with it's famous Wordsworth house. For adventurous hill-walkers, Melbreak, Haystacks, Grassmoor and the Buttermere mountains are easily accessible, as are the valleys of Ennerdale and Wasdale. Keswick and Borrowdale are about a 25 minute drive away.

Beautiful little cottage in a very quite location.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very spacious with all the amenities you would want. It was exceptionally clean and there were lovely personal touches ie fresh flowers and chocolates. Colin was unable to be there when we arrived, however he was constantly in touch and his directions were spot on. I would strongly recommend this accommodation if you are looking for peace and quite whilst being right on the edge of the Lakes District and just a few minutes drive from Cockermouth which was a lovely town.

A comfortable and pleasant cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Garden Cottage is a lovely place for a relaxing holiday. It is very clean and comfortable and well equipped with everything you might need. Colin and Leslie are friendly and welcoming. Although the photos show the outside steps, be aware that there are a further 4 steps inside. All in all, a very pleasant holiday stay. We enjoyed our two weeks here and would highly recommend it.

Great base for getting round the lakes

  • 5 of 5

A very peaceful location with little to no noise other than nature (of which the lambs definitely liked to make themselves known!)

Colin was welcoming and happy to chat about my daily hikes/travels. The property had absolutely everything I needed and the description was accurate.

Overall this was a completely hassle free stay.

I would definitely be happy to stay here again, and likely will!
