It's an absolute delight to include this property. If you ever read Swallows & Amazons (Arthur Ransome) then you'll not be able to resist this fabulous chance to have your own private jetty and you are allowed to borrow the owners kayak and rowing boat (if you don't have your own) too!
Owners note :
The property is not enclosed and leads to Coniston Water - so children and pets must be supervised at all times.
Guests are welcome to borrow the kayak or rowing boat and can of course bring their own launch.
Further photographs and information about this Lake access to Coniston Water self catering accommodation can be found here.
Wow, just wow.....this property almost doesn't need any words, but we'd hate you to miss that in 2020 Gatesgarth was awarded the coveted 'Best Residential Build' at the Northern Design Awards. The build is thermally efficient and incorporates so many local features from Artisans and Builders right down having Herdwick sheep wool in the dining chairs - yes look at those chairs again around the dining table. They are actually made by compositing Herdwick sheep wood and combining this with a resin, I was fascinated and if you are too, you can read more here. Readers of Cumbria Life will recall their 6 page feature of Gatesgarth in May 2020.
The minimalistic kitchen was designed and hand built by local artisans The Rusland Movement and attention to detail is everywhere from the lighting and Quooker tap, to the wine cooler!
Gatesgarth has been designed to be wheelchair user friendly, with access from the car parking space to the front door and to the ground floor open plan kitchen/ dining area. Two of the bedrooms are located on the ground floor, one of which has a wheelchair accessible wet/shower room.
The floor to ceiling windows in the living areas, which are on the first floor, are perfect to soak up the breath-taking views and a decked balcony perfect for star gazing!
The lounge and some of the bedrooms are on the first floor, which has no easy wheelchair access.
Wheelchair access to the ground floor, includes two bedrooms and a user friendly wet room.
Please note : This property is not to be booked for the purpose of Stag / Hen or similar parties - thank you

Lots of thought has gone into the refurbishment of this traditional terraced cottage, which has an open fire and is dog-friendly with fabulous views from the enclosed rear garden.
We think it would be perfect for two couples or a family with teens (do ask for the room to be made a twin) - purely due to the fact that both bedrooms have such fabulous en-suites!
Do check out more photographs of the lovely en-suite bathrooms and also to check availability and see more photographs of Holly Cottage here.

Tilberthwaite is one of those Lakeland joys, where you just feel far enough away from everything to really relax but with amenities not too far away if you really need them. Previous guests have loved soaking up the atmosphere here and as one reviewer mentioned there could be sheep practically on your doorstep so if you are taking you dog with you please keep that to mind!
Previous guests have loved the walks from the door and of course the amazing scenery too!
Due to location one reviewer has mentioned that phone signal was very weak/non-existent for their provider, if this is important to you.
There are lots more photos for you to see (we don't currently have one of the Hot Tub, but previous guest have said this is a good size and on private decking); you can check availability and read guest reviews just here.
