Jazzberry Cottage is a brand new quality cottage conversion occupying an enviable location in the heart of the Southern Lake District. Either immerse yourself in the many varied attractions within 10 mins of the property or lose yourself in the surrounding stunningly beautiful countryside and woodlands of the Rusland Valley and Furness Fells.

A perfect rural holiday retreat with comfortable and modern luxury throughout. It is more reminiscent of a contemporary hotel than what you would expect from a traditional Lakeland cottage, with the 'cheeky cottage chic' styling proving a winning combination. Jazzberry boasts all modern luxuries such as waterfall shower, full central heating, Italian Sofas, SKY TV etc whilst maintaining the intimate feel of a classic Lakeland cottage with a traditional fireplace, wood burning stove and original doors.

Boasting two comfortable, contemporary furnished bedrooms sleeping four people (master king and a twin) and a stunning large family bathroom, Jazzberry is perfect for a family holiday or just a chance to chill in company of friends.

The spacious fully fitted kitchen offers everything you require should you decide to self-cater and make the most of the dining table.

Jazzberry enjoys direct access from A590 to the front and has lowland fells to the rear. We are certain that the plethora of local attractions will keep the whole party busy but for a change of scenery and all important relaxation, a day at the nearby refurbished Whitewater Leisure Centre or Swan Hotel can be enjoyed for a daily rate.

Whether you would like to simply enjoy the complete peace of Backbarrow, taking cycle rides or walks out from your door (whether for a leisurely stroll among the fells, hills and tarns or just a quick trip to one of the four friendly pubs/hotels within walking distance), or for use as a base for exploring the beautiful landscape of the Lake District National Park, the location could hardly be better.

Further details indoors

Originally a Victorian 'dolly blue works' workers cottage, the accommodation is arranged over three levels overlooking the delightful Leven Valley.

The upper accommodation

Large Double = The super comfy King size bed doesn't dominate this large sun-filled bedroom with its light and airy decor and deep carpets. There is plenty of hanging and storage space in the double wardrobe.

Twin = A cosy room with two luxury three foot oak topped beds and plenty of drawer space provided in the coordinating furniture. The view out towards the River Leven is a delight to wake up to.

Entrance Level

Jazzberry is fully equipped with everything you need to make your holiday, weekend or short break exceed everyone's expectations

The main entrance is at street level and directly into the fully fitted and equipped kitchen, with a electric cooker and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/drier and all the pans, knives and cooking implements you could wish for. This is a social space with integrated Sky HD TV and sitting space - perfect for that pre-dinner glass of wine and all important debrief of the day - while someone else cooks of course!

The stunning bathroom with its freestanding roll top bath and double size waterfall shower is also on this level. This serene and tranquil space is bang on trend blending the modern with the traditional. The soft colour scheme and spa atmosphere makes this room the perfect place to pamper, unwind and de-stress.

The property's open staircase with funky feature wall and opulent chandeliers is at the back of the house linking the three levels of this home.

Lower Level

The main room is a huge yet cosy open-plan living and dining space. The traditional cottage feel is present as soon as you light the magnificent log burner which is surrounded by the oversized Lakeland stone fireplace.

Enjoy dinner on the beautiful table, then sink and curl up into the deep comfy Italian sofas. What could be better than a delicious dinner, then curling up with your favourite tipple by the fire. The large flat screen TV offers a range of SKY digital channels or choose to chill out with a DVD, this is great space for socialising, reading or just relaxing. WIFI available too.

The lounge leads out to the decked yard area, which is ideal for the mandatory 'G&T' or why not wonder up to the park for a sundowner overlooking the Leven Valley

NB- A 'zed bed' will be provided for the fifth guest - for use in the lounge or master bedroom.

Further details outdoors

The cottage has a small decked yard area, however this leads out onto the A590 and the front door leads directly onto the road. The fact that the roads are a danger to children and that the cottage is split over three levels with an open staircase means we would not recommend the property to families with young children. They must be road aware. Again anyone bringing dogs must ensure they are on a lead before leaving the property.

Further details

A 'ZED BED' will be provided for the fifth person. This can be used in the lounge or master bedroom and comes with bedding

WIFI is being installed for 2014

The Lake District

Stunning mountains, open fells and the clear fresh water lakes – the Lake District landscape always inspires, with several literary greats, including William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter having had their creative juices stirred by the impressive scenery.

The Lake District is home to some of England’s best known and most beautiful scenery. While the central area, around Windermere and Ambleside, attract most of the visitors, those in the know head to less frequented spots, such as the Lake District’s south-western peninsula. Here the mountains meet the coast to give dramatic and unique vistas.

With a vast range of tourist attractions, historical sites and leisure activities (many within 10 minutes drive of Jazzberry), this part of the Lakes has so much to offer we are sure you will want to return again and again.

For the serious walker the mountains of Skiddaw, Scafell and Helvellyn provide enjoyable challenges, whilst at lower levels there are hundreds of routes wandering among the lakes and stone-walled fields. You can even choose a lake to suit your mood: if bustling lakeside towns and exhilarating watersports take your fancy, then try Windermere or Coniston Water, where you can cruise the lake on a steam-powered boat soaking up the scenery in Victorian style or master a new skill such as kayaking, sailing or even raft building.

If it’s peace and tranquillity you seek then the secluded lakes of Buttermere and Wastwater are not to be missed. Yet Cumbria offers much more than the lakes alone. Explore the National Nature Reserve on Walney Island, the golden sand dunes of Roan Head or visit the hidden, picturesque Duddon Valley, with its heather clad moors peppered with birch trees.

Newby Bridge

The South Lakes and South East Cumbria have the best of both worlds – quiet, beautiful open countryside yet within easy reach of the Lake District’s ‘Hot Spots’.

Family days out include the South Lakes Animal Park at nearby Dalton, where you can see Amur and Sumatran Tigers, Muncaster Castle with its owl sanctuary and adventure playground, either the Eskdale miniature railway or Haverthwaite Steam Trains, The Lakes Aquarium, boat trips on Windermere or Coniston Water, Furness Abbey, The Beatrix Potter Gallery, the award winning gardens of Holker Hall or Grizedale Forest with it's sculpture trails, way marked mountain bike tracks and high wire rope course provided by Go Ape - the list of attractions within the area is endless.

Leisure activities close by include lake swimming at Fell Foot, golfing, fishing, adrenalin sports, canoeing and horse riding. During the summer many local villages put on annual agricultural shows. These are well worth a visit to get a real feel for local life from Cumberland wrestling and ferret races to stick making competitions and well groomed Herdwick sheep.

Or just potter around and soak up the atmosphere of the ancient and picturesque local villages. For example Cartmel is only 10 minutes drive, with its winding streets, pretty cottages, whitewashed houses and medieval buildings leading to the village square. It is also home to Britain’s smallest National Hunt racecourse (meetings over late May and August bank holidays).

Several walks can be made straight from Jazzberry’s front door, with the diversity of paths and tracks threading the fells and woodlands creating hundreds of opportunities for individual exploration, in a way that he well worn mountain routes can no longer satisfy. In exploring this fascinating area, you will not only be following in the footsteps of Victorian holidaymakers in taking the steam trains and steam boats, but their industry too - with former gunpowder factories at Haverthwaite and the still working museum of the Stott Park Bobbin Mill at Finsthwaite.

We also suggest some of our own favourite walks from the door such as the circular walk taking in the open fells behind Newby Bridge, through the delightful wooded Rusland Valley, back down to sea level and the marshy floors of Haverthwaite before returning through delightful woodland lanes - oh did I mention the four pubs that could be visited on this 9 mile route?

This this part of the Lakes really does has so much to offer we are sure you will be returning again and again. The local attractions close to Jazzberry are:

Walking distance = Lakeland Motor Museam; Lakeland and Haverthwaite Railway that links you to the Lakeland Steam Cruises up and down Windermere; The Lakes Aquarium; Bigland Hall Estate offering Adrenalin sports, shooting, fishing and riding.

Short Drive = Holker Hall; Sizergh Castle; South Lakes Wildlife Park; Blackwell arts and crafts house; World of Beatrix Potter;

"Very lovely location with fabulous service!"

Affectionate welcome pack on arrival, lovely arranged fresh flowers in almost every room, fully equipped location with nearly nothing to miss during our stay of 1 week. We (family of four persons and a dog) were very positively impressed, because everything was at least as it was described on TripAdvisor, partially even better. Lots of information about the region, good explanations regarding use of the house's equipment etc. There were no problems during our stay, Emma provided support and care starting from our request until our leave which we were very happy about! Very sincere greetings from us to you again, Emma: it's not everywhere such a good service and good condition in other holiday homes as it was with yours!!! And the road nearby: who cares? Never mind! That's nothing in your responsibility. We slept well nevertheless. Furthermore we met many friendly and kind people living there in Backbarrow, which surprised us once more. Finally we can say, that we definitely recommend this location Jazzberry Cottage with a very good and pure conscience. Looking forward to another holiday in the future! Best regards from Kassel, Germany :-))

"Cosy Cottage with a Homely Feel"

Its hard to find a stay where you can actually kick back and relax, but once you've walked one of the many routes near buy, this is it. Feels very home like and comfortable. Id recommend to anybody looking for a bargain stay at this price, so close to Lake Windermere. We will definitely be back again, missing the shower already. Thank you

"A beautifully appointed home away from home"

My wife, daughter and I stayed at Jazzberry Cottage recently and found it to be a gorgeous little paradise to return home to after a day looking around the famous Lakes District. The location at first looks to be busy and noisy....but once the doors are closed it is very peaceful. The location is perfect for exploring the lakes...being at the Southern tip of Lake Windermere. Jazzberry is comfortable, warm and very well set up with extra little things that make a difference when travelling. We enjoyed our stay very much, and it is a luxurious cottage which feels very homely. Emma was a wonderful host, and she made all the difference when organising our arrival time etc.. We would definitely recommend Jazzberry Cottage.

"Luxury romantic cottage delight"

The cottage is first class, It's worth getting muddy on a long walk just to be able to justify using the bathroom again. Very warm and cosy place with high quality furnishings throughout. The correspondence and service from the owners is swift and very helpful. It's in a good location with relatively good access to main roads and the many beauty spots that the South Lakes has to offer. This was our second time at the cottage and am sure it'll be three before too long. A great place to be.

"Excellent cottage"

Stunning cottage in quiet area but close enough to shops. You will need to travel by car as I haven't really seen any buses. The three levels might be a problem for someone with mobility problems. My mom who is 80 went with us but she is still very active and managed well.
