We have a family house seated at the foot of Catbells in the heart of the Borrowdale Valley and offer a comfortable room with a view across the valley toward Walla Crag. Quiet village location and beautiful walks straight from the door step.
An interesting, comfortable and well equiped home in a quiet location. Beautiful view across the valley and situated to catch the early morning sun.
Bedroom, shared bathroom, kitchen - for breakfast, tea and coffee etc. Each morning we provide breakfast of cereals, eggs, bacon, toast and preserves in the family kitchen. Guests can prepare this themselves or relax whilst it is prepared for them. Breakfast time is negotiable and we make every effort to flex to guests requirements.
Interaction with Guests
As this is it family home it is inevitable that guests will see us around and we are happy to chat and discuss interesting places to walk or visit. However, we are mindful that guests usually want to enjoy time alone together and so we try to respect this during the day and evening.
Lovely village with friendly neighbours, beautiful views, both fell and flat walks straight from the door, access to the lake within half a mile.
There is a bus service from Grange bridge to Keswick (the nearest town) four miles away. The bus is hourly in both directions during the summer months and less frequently in the winter.
Other Things to Note
We have two friendly dogs, one of whom can be excited on the first meeting (but quickly settles), and one cat who is also friendly but largely follows her own agenda.
We don't have a great many rules; we are a non-smoking house, we remove our shoes in the house (and so guests might want to bring thick socks or slippers), and we are mindful of the comfort of others, which includes being careful to be quiet if returning late in the evening.
Evy is an excellent host and it was lovely to meet her and share her home for a few days. We had a very comfortable, warm and enjoyable stay. The room was just what we needed to explore the lakes and it would be nice to return one day. Highly recommended.
Evy was a terrific host. Nothing was too much trouble and her house was gorgeous. Room had fantastic views and the bed was lovely and comfy - we had a great nights' sleep
Excellent trip. Everything was perfect, fantastic host, lovely room and great breakfast in the morning. Made to feel very welcome. Will hopefully be back at some point!
Evy is a wonderful host who made my stay very comfortable. Excellent A1 star breakfast and conversation, in a beautiful setting conveniently close to town but far enough away to be rural. I can definately recommend Evy to any would bd airbnb'ers.
Evy is friendly and welcoming. Her home is warm and quiet and the breakfast was fantastic. I'd love to come and stay again if she'll allow it.
Perfect! Views were amazing, location is stunning, and a great night's sleep in a very comfy bed. Breakfast was delicious as well - felt very welcomed by Evy who was friendly and relaxed and made us feel at home.
What a wonderful weekend! Evy (and her pets) were most welcoming! My girlfriend and I arrived late and while Evy was out for her birthday meal, yet she still made it very easy for us to get into the house and to get settled. The beautiful house, with its breathtaking views of Borrowdale, was the perfect base for our excursions into the surrounding fells and dales. The comfortable bed, hearty breakfast and nice fluffy towels were the perfect little touches which helped make our weekend thoroughly enjoyable, even after the harsh conditions atop the snowcapped Grisdale Pike.
Thank you, Evy. 10/10 would recommend.
