About this listing
In the village of Eamont Bridge overlooking the River Eamont, our well equipped Cottage gives easy access to the Lake District and the Eden Valley. This historic area has Neolithic monuments, Roman forts medieval castles and fabulous scenery.
The Cottage was a stable, converted in 1989 to make a comfortable dwelling suitable for four people.Everyone who has stayed with us has said how lovely the cottage is. We overlook the River Eamont and the River Lowther flows down the other end of the village. Six miles away is Lake Ullswater, with its spectacular views. Wordsworth loved this area and so do I. Come and see it for yourself.
Guests have access to the walled garden with pond and mature trees, off road parking space (down a very narrow lane), clothes line and outdoor table and chairs.
Interaction with Guests
We like to meet our guests if possible and show them round the cottage. Because our house is adjacent to the Cottage, guests can come at any time if there is a problem. We have had guests from all over the world and they have all been delightful and delighted.
What is there not to love about the Lake District and the Eden Valley? The scenery is beautiful. The nearest lake is Ullswater and ferries run from one end to the other, stopping off at various destinations. For the keen walker, the area is ideal, with lakeside fells to explore and country tracks to follow. The surrounding countryside is steeped in history, from Neolithic Henges and stone circles to the Romans and Hadrian's Wall, Medieval castles and the Jacobite rebellion of 1749
The cottage is ideally situated within easy reach of a main line railway station. It is close to the M6 motorway, with good road links north, south, east and west. The nearest airport is Newcastle, then Glasgow with Manchester about 100 miles away.
