Situated on a Lakeland Hill Farm in a tranquil location at the foot of Skiddaw, near picturesque Bassenthwaite village, Peter House Cottages are owner maintained, quality, self catering barn conversions. The cottages sleep 5 and 4 people respectively and are rated 4 Star with the National Tourist Board.
These beamed properties are warm and comfortable, tastefully furnished, equipped to a high standard and have fantastic Lake District views from most windows. The properties are fed with Lakeland spring water which is lovely to bath and wash in and even better to drink!
The cottages are located on a quiet country road with Skiddaw literally on your doorstep. They are an ideal base for fell walking straight from the front door or taking the car to explore the Northern Lakes (see our walks page). There is also an abundance of wild birds around the farm.
There are nearby local amenities as the cottages are close to the Lakeland village of Bassenthwaite and the market town of Keswick on Derwentwater. The local village has a pub whilst Keswick consists of various shops, galleries, a cinema, many restaurants and much more. See our Links page for more details.
Peter House Cottages are owned by Valerie and Thomas Trafford who work on the farm and are generally on hand to suggest one of the many great things the area has to offer!
