This house was built for a local iron ore mine in the 1890s. It looks out towards Ennerdale valley, in the Lake District Park, and a short path to the C2C cycleway. The location is quiet, with passing traffic for the farm only.
The large single room accommodates twin beds for two guests. There is a second bedroom with a double bed and downstairs a small separate sitting room, with a TV.
It is a 10 minute walk to the centre of the village and frequent buses to Whitehaven, on the coast.

Other things to note
Guest bedrooms are on the first floor, where the shared bathroom is located. There is a cloakroom on the ground floor.
In the kitchen there is access to a kettle, grill, fridge, freezer and microwave for heating food, or for preparation of simple meals, sandwiches and a basic breakfast.
I do a lot of home cooking and may be able to provide an evening meal or a cereal/toast breakfast for an additional charge, if arranged well enough in advance. I do use nuts in my cooking. The village has a convenience store open until 8pm or 4pm on Sunday, until 8pm other days.
During the summer months you may like to spend time in the garden.
Mobile phone signals vary according to the providers and can be non-existent.

Where you’ll be

Cumbria, England, United Kingdom

Frizington is one of many villages in the west of Cumbria that thrived in the late 1800s and 1900s due to the rich mineral sources. Winder Gate is half a mile from the main village and was built as workers houses for Margaret Mine.
From here it is a few miles into the National Park, but the roundabout road route takes 15-20 minutes, heading to the nearest valley, Ennerdale, and Ennerdale Lake, seven miles to walk around.
South is Wasdale, where you can see the view voted the best in the country, looking up Wast Water, the deepest lake, towards the highest mountain in England and the smallest church.
Nearby Eskdale has a steep windy route to the other side of the Lakes past a Roman hill fort. In Eskdale the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway runs small narrow-guage trains from the coast into the hills.
In the other direction are the more visited Loweswater, Crummock and Buttermere valleys, on the way towards Keswick, a bustling market town.
