Sleeps 2, 1 bedroom. Price From £495 Per Week
An idyllic small cottage for two tucked away along a quiet country lane; no crowds, few cars, just wonderful high fells, a beautiful river and ancient woodlands to explore in a lovely quiet valley of old Westmorland. ‘Bluebell’ is a delightful place; it has just been completely renovated to a very high standard and is luxuriously comfortable. The cottage is furnished in country style with Liberty and Laura Ashley fabrics, antique pine furniture, an old elm staircase and little curios in the nooks and crannies. Everything is included in the price; central heating, a large basket of logs in winter, electricity and all linen, including sumptuous towels and bathrobes. The lounge has a real log fire, beamed ceiling, windows overlooking the garden, comfortable two-seater sofa and armchair, occasional tables and lamps, flat screen television, dining table and bookcase with books and games. The shower room has a power shower and Victorian style polished brass fittings. The pretty, country style bedroom has a beamed ceiling, blissfully comfortable 5′ bed, windows overlooking the garden and antique pine furniture. The newly-fitted kitchen is a pleasure to use and is well equipped with Bosch dishwasher, Bosch electric fan oven, electric induction hob, microwave oven, larder fridge, freezer, electric toaster, etc., pretty china and a good selection of cutlery and cookware. Utility area with washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer.

Bluebell has its own private garden surrounding the cottage with a natural waterfall and interesting country garden plants. There are seats to sit in the sun and seats to sit in the shade – all with lovely views – and garden furniture for outdoor meals on the terrace overlooking the waterfall. The mountain scenery surrounding the cottage is breath taking and as you would expect in such an unspoilt area, there is a marvellous variety of wildlife; pied flycatchers and redstarts nest in the garden, there are badger setts in the nearby woods and the occasional sighting of roe and red deer.
There is off-road, private car parking space adjacent to the cottage.
One of the greatest delights of staying at Bluebell Cottage is being able to lace up your walking boots, pack a light lunch and stroll along the glorious River Lune; surrounded by high fells, ancient woodland, wild flowers and rushing waterfalls, you will forget time as you watch the clear green water tumbling along, stopping to skim pebbles across the still pools and catching the flash of turquoise on the kingfisherʼs wing. In all weathers this is a lovely walk; lazy and soporific in the summer; exhilarating and brisk in the winter, gentle if you stay by the river, challenging if you make a day of it and walk up into the high fells.
The scenery around the Cottage is beautiful; high fells, woodland, meadows and rushing river. Wild flowers flourish and wildlife abounds; deer, otters, peregrines and many other rare birds. A handwritten guidebook, especially for guests, describes walks straight from the door and equally beautiful ones nearby with a short drive.
Sedbergh is the nearest big village and is now a ʻbook townʼ so has lots of places to browse around and one or two antique shops. Dent is a very pretty village with cobbled streets and interesting art galleries. And Kirkby Lonsdale is just lovely; touristy but unspoilt, this beautiful, tiny market town has lots of interesting shops, great places for lunch, cafe bars with pretty gardens, really good restaurants, a very attractive ancient church and glorious river-side walks.
Then, there are all the activities of the Lake District to discover; lake sailing on Ullswater, rowing on Grasmere, easy climbing up Cat Bells by Derwentwater, adventures in Grisedale Forest, visiting Beatrice Potter’s House, Wordsworth’s Grasmere, coffee at Miller Howe (wonderful!), lunch at The Mason’s Arms at Strawberry Bank (after an easy walk up Gummer’s Howe overlooking Windermere) and also suggestions for some of the best walks in the Lake District, often with a country pub along the way; or a boat trip across Ullswater to Howtown with a wonderful walk back along the lake edge to Glenridding.
Also in the guidebook: quaint, pretty villages, the best of the country pubs and some ‘off the beaten track’ suggestions too. And always returning to the wonderful tranquillity surrounding Bluebell Cottage.

Cumbria is the most north westerly county of England, and was created by the merging of the old counties of Cumberland and Westmoreland, along with parts of Lancashire and Yorkshire. Cumbria is, perhaps, best known for being the home of the Lake District National Park. So far as birdwatching is concerned, Cumbria is offers a superb variety of birds.
The landscape owes its character to glaciation, with the Lake District displaying a radiating system of valleys and ridges, lakes and rivers. Much of Cumbria is high ground of over 400metres, with the area around Carlisle and the Eden valley at lower elevation, attracting in particular birds of prey.
The county has an extensive coastline, with the south Cumbrian coast being the northern containment of Morecambe Bay, an area of international importance for migrating and wintering waders. The northern coast is the south shore of the Solway Firth, again an important area for wintering wildfowl. The west coast boasts a small range of sandstone cliffs at St. Bees, which provide nesting sites for auks, kittiwakes and fulmars.
