The space
Dunkeld Cottage is a chocolate box style cottage within easy reach of the Lake District and is nestled at the foot of the Pennines! The cottage features stunning beams and original period features throughout, with everything thought of to make your stay a comfortable, relaxing one! The cottage dates back to 1820 and yet has been extremely well maintained and looked after - with all the mod cons! The kitchen/breakfast room is particularly lovely and has pretty views over the garden and is very spacious. All of the appliances you could need are here - including integral dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and of course a hob and double oven. There is a spacious and cosy lounge/dining room which features a truly amazing fireplace, beamed ceilings throughout, comfy sofas, TV with numerous digital channels, WiFi, and a desk with leaflets on the local area and further seating. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, again, boasting glorious beams throughout and are very charming. The master bedroom features a kingsize bed. The second bedroom has twin beds which you are welcome to push together if required. There is also a bathroom with a bath - ideal for a bubbly soaking after a long Lake District walk! The garden is fully enclosed and private and there is plenty of room for you to bring your bikes - and probably anything else like a canoe etc.. - just ask us! We love the fact that Ullswater is around a 15 minute scenic drive from the cottage and it is our favourite day out - there's so much to do there from walking the Ullswater Way, taking a Steamer boat out or getting involved in water sports. The villages of Pooley Bridge, Patterdale and Glenridding all provide plenty of sustenance as well, after a long day's activity! Equally, the Pennines are the backdrop of the cottage, and if you want to head away from the crowds that can sometimes gather in the summer, then a delightful stroll around Pennine country may be just what you need! Another great day out is just a short hop to the village of Dufton where you can climb the famous High Cup Nick and also explore the many stunning walks from the village - and finish up in the pub afterwards! Likewise, Keswick is only a relatively short, scenic drive away - we recommend a boat trip, a hike up the famous Cat Bells, followed by a pub lunch or dinner in the fantastic town centre. There's so much to do - you'll need to keep coming back to do more! :)

Where you’ll be

Kirkby Thore, England, United Kingdom

Kirkby Thore is situated just a short drive from the Lake District - and most notably, glorious Ullswater - it's simply our favourite day out! You can walk a stretch of the Ullswater Way, with boat trips and tea-shops aplenty along the route! In our actual village, and within a short walk of the cottage, you will find a Michelin-listed bistro which serves fabulous food and alcohol, all at reasonable prices, given the quality. But if you fancy a stroll, a half an hours walk along the River Eden or along a country lane, takes you to Temple Sowerby, which is a traditional English pub. Another local walk takes you to the very pretty village of Long Marton which also has a quintessential English pub. Likewise, another half an hour to three quarters glorious walk along the River will let you arrive at Bolton, where another modern and stylish pub awaits you! We highly recommend you also visit the nearby village of Dufton and head up Dufton Pike if you have the legs for it - the views are simply superb. A stay at Dunkeld Cottage will enable you to enjoy delights both locally and also great as a base for exploring all the lakes - we love visiting Keswick and Grasmere, and a walk to Easedale Tarn is a gorgeous walk, ideal for all the family and is simply stunning. Guests who book with us are provided with ample guidance for days out, and we also regularly blog about the stuff we get up to when we visit - hopefully giving plenty of ideas!
