A perfect hideaway in a tranquil little-known part of the Lake District National Park - yet within easy reach of all major Lakeland visitor attractions.

The cottage is perfect for that get-away-from-it-all holiday. It's a cosy base from which you can walk for miles along ancient tracks and footpaths, take a leisurely drive through quiet lanes or just do nothing - relaxing in the 3/4 acres of garden or perhaps taking a picnic down to the summer house overlooking the pond.

Forest Field cottage is a luxurious, (4 star rated) cottage with level access adjacent to our Victorian schoolmaster's house. Completely private and self contained, it has been specially designed for two people. It is well equipped with high quality furnishings and decor throughout and kept in immaculate condition.

Please visit our website for more information about the cottage.

The Cumbria/Lake District

Those of us in the know are not in the least bit surprised that the Lake District has just been voted Best UK Holiday Destination. Whether you are after an activity holiday or a place to relax and recharge your batteries, this is the place to come. The sheer variety of fabulous scenery never ceases to amaze us: from spectacular mountains, to green ice-cut valleys and blue shimmering lakes.

Human activity over millennia has added to the charm of the region, with picture perfect villages and small market towns which blend into the landscape.

But that’s not all! At the edge of all this lies a unique coastal landscape typified by quiet beaches, salt marshes – a haven for wild life - and working towns, such as Barrow with its abbey, ship building museum and internationally famous wildlife park.

Yes! There really is something for everyone whatever the weather. And no – it’s not always raining. Facing into the westerly winds we do get our share, so come prepared – it is though, what makes this place really special.

Colton - Lake District

Set in the rolling hills and quiet, unspoilt countryside in the south of the Lake District National Park, the cottage makes an ideal venue from which to explore what the Lake District has to offer.

You can walk for miles along ancient tracks and footpaths, take a leisurely drive through quiet lanes, hire bicycles or a boat or go horse riding. Or you may prefer to relax and do very little.

Well known Lakeland visitor attractions are not far away with the Grizedale Forest, Hawkshead, Lake Coniston and Lake Windermere all within a quarter of an hour away by car. The cottage is ideally located for exploring places so familiar to Beatrix Potter and featured in the recent film Miss Potter.

The pretty market town of Ulverston on the Furness peninsular is only 6 miles away and well worth a visit – particularly to see one of its many festivals. The Northern Lakes with Keswick as their centre are an hour away.

Further afield, the Yorkshire Dales are within easy reach. See our web site for links detailing what’s on.

There are many good quality local venues for eating out - including our 'local'- just a mile across fields - for those wanting to walk.

We provide full details of these and other attractions in the information pack in the cottage: everything to make for that memorable holiday.
