Picturesque outside, plush within, Wythburn Cottage is a spacious retreat in Cumbria’s stunning Eden Valley
- Sleeps: 6
Immaculate decor & luxury facilities in this grade II Lakeland gem
Past the castle, down a winding garden path you reach the rose-gold sandstone haven of Wythburn. Sunlight floods into the kitchen from wide arched windows. The vaulted ceiling gives it a spacious grandeur perfect for celebrations and festivities. It’s open plan and equipped for a masterchef, so you can catch up with loved ones as you uncork the wine or rustle up a feast from your complimentary hamper of local delicacies. If the Cumbrian mists descend, curl up by the cast iron stove in the galleried lounge, with ornate wrought screens opening down onto the open plan dining room.
With grace and beauty inside and out, a stay at Wythburn promises memories to cherish.
Ancient orchards and leisurely breakfasts
Your secluded terrace, framed with dry stone walls and overlooking the ancient orchard, is a suntrap for leisurely breakfasts and convivial barbecues. Let children and dogs run off steam safely on your private lawn beyond. Have leaf-and-stick boat races along the bubbling rill. Soak up the sun on long days scented with lavender. With Blencowe castle at your elbow and the Lakeland fells stretching into the distance, your imagination runs free and your spirits soar.
Four posters and castle views
After long, full days out in the Pennines and Lakes, steam and soothe aching limbs from a choice of en-suite bath or rainfall shower. Open your bedroom door to the garden and watch the sun set over the castle tower. Lean on your wrought iron Juliet balcony in the old hayloft to sip a glass. Loll on a leather Chesterfield with a favorite book, or stretch out on your four-poster. Then sink down under feather duvets wrapped in Egyptian cotton and drift into sweet dreams.
If you can bear to leave...
Fill your lungs with clear Cumbrian air – there are miles of running, hiking and biking routes from your doorstep. Potter around nearby Greystoke village: visit its legendary castle; take tea in the walled garden of the Cycle Café or sample a local brew in The Boot and Shoe. Aira Force and Ullswater Lake are minutes’ drive away for rambles, steamboat jaunts and water sports. Fish for brown trout, go raspberry picking or wander the Estates’ plantation to choose a Christmas tree, and have it felled to order. If the limitless supply of natural wonders begin to pall, recharge your adrenalin with quad biking, clay pigeon shooting or a paintballing spree. Add elegance to the mix with an evening at Keswick’s Theatre by the Lake or a Michelin-starred dinner at Sharrow Bay.
