The Byre is a detached cottage set in the beautiful Newlands Valley between the villages of Braithwaite and Buttermere in the heart of the Northern Fells of the Lake District. About 3 miles from Keswick it is convenient for facilities and yet you can start fabulous walks onto the fells from the front door.

It is spacious, generously furnished and fitted, and offers luxury accommodation for two people. Come home to a log burner in the colder months or a cold drink on the terrace overlooking the wildlife garden in the summer ...

Most visitors are walkers and enjoy the location for it's ease of access to Catbells and Causey Pike ; however also nearby is the specialist Mountain Bike cycling centre of Whinlatter Forest and also the Derwent Water marina in Portinscale where sailing and canoe hire is available. Activities such as Ghyll scrambling and Climbing for all ages can be arranged through the Newlands Activity Centre down the road...

If The Byre is booked when you want to visit look at 'StoneyGill A' : same fabulous location , high spec 1 bedroom apartment that I have recently added to TripAdvisor.

"A spacious property in a stunning location."

This cottage has superb space for a two person holiday. Living room has huge patio doors all along one wall looking straight out to Cat Bells, views from the kitchen and bedroom of Skiddaw. The kitchen is well equipped with lots of work surface. The whole place is bright and airy and built and decorated to a high standard. The friendly owner is on site for any queries.
The only downside is the narrow road up from the village, although there are many passing places. A perfect setting for a walking holiday in the northern lakes.

"Excellent in many ways"

The cottage is probably the best we have stayed in. It has loads of space, is well furnished & very clean. There are great views & walks direct from the cottage with lots of wildlife literally on the doorstep. Many thanks to David for making us welcome & providing local advice when we asked for it.

"Excellent for Winter getaway"

We reached the cottage after a 8 hour drive from Swindon just as snow started to fall in Keswick. We were pleasantly surprised to find the cottage was warm and there was milk, tea and a loaf of fruit … More

"Absolutely incredible"

We stayed here for three nights at the end of February, however now we wish it had been for longer! The palace is just so amazing. The weather wasn't great, it rained most of the time but the property is in such a great location it meant we could get out when we could, and be in comfort when we got in, and have plenty to do and enjoy whilst being inside, we almost didn't want to leave the building!!!the pictures do not do the place justice, and the owner is very willing to help if you need anything which is nice to know. There isn't a bad thing to say about this place. We will definitely be coming back, we had a lovely time, thank you!

"Super cottage in a fantastic location"

The Byre is a delightful cottage in an excellent location just outside of Keswick. The walking from the door is superb and the views are amazing. The cottage is in immaculate condition and well equipped. We would highly recommend a visit.

"Wonderful Cottage - much needed holiday!!"

We stayed in the Byre for 4 days in January and couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our holiday.
We arrived to a warm welcome, with tea and cake laid out for us. The cottage was very spacious, clean and beautifully presented, with everything you could possibly need for a short break. Despite sub zero temperatures every night, we were kept snug and warm with the log burning fire. The views of the fells from the living room windows are breath taking, as the pictures show!
Very highly recommended - the perfect place to stay when visiting the beautiful lake district. It was our first time in the Byre, and we were reluctant to leave, but we'll hopefully be back soon!

"Fantastic accommodation with spectacular views!"

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay over Christmas in such wonderful accommodation. Though it is very spacious it was still very cosy especially once a roaring log fire has been lit in the wood burner. The… More

"The Byre is a spacious and welcoming retreat with spectacular views and all the amenities one could hope for!"

If you have a vision of the perfect remote location to relax and enjoy gorgeous landscapes, this is your place. We arrived at dark so did not gain the full picture until arising the next morning. It was breath taking as we sipped our tea. It is really hard to describe the perfection of this "cottage" ( I put this in quotes, as it is far more than a cottage). The location though remote, is quite convenient to Keswick and points beyond.

If you love to cook, the kitchen was delightful and we produced some pretty great creations. As our kitchen creations were simmering, we sipped great wine by the wood stove that was quite inviting.

The Byre will always be our choice when visiting Cumbria!!!
