About the Bassenthwaite area...


The Bassenthwaite area is the ideal location if you are looking to escape the busier central Lake District but still enjoy the immense beauty of the Lake District. The towns of Keswick and Cockermouth are each less than 15 minutes drive plus you can reach the central Lakes in a little over 30 minutes.

This barn conversion cottage has been newly renovated, fitted and decorated to the highest standard. The cottage is located alongside the A595 and sleeps six people in two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom.

Whitehead Cottage benefits a number of unique features including the comfortable open plan living area on the first floor; with the lounge, dining area and fully integrated kitchen.  The views from the living area windows overlook the beautiful Cumbrian Countryside towards the Solway Coast and Criffel.

Another unique feature is the large master double bedroom, with huge super king sized double bed and double doors again affording views of the countryside.

Outside the cottage is a patio area with outdoor furniture; allowing you to take the advantage of the countryside.
