The Byre, Newlands Valley nr Keswick
from £58 /night help
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
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.

"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!!!

"LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!"
Unbelievable property, huge with fantastic views towards Catbells. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we loved the peace and quiet amongst stunning scenery but with all the facilities of Keswick nearby. The photos don't do the Byre justice! We will definitely return and would recommend.

"Fantastic location and a property with the Wow factor"
This is a one bedroomed property and when my partner and I arrived we were expecting one bedroom sized proportions. Imagine our surprise when we went in and found that the property was like the Tardis. Every room was larger than we expected with good quality fixtures and fittings. The complimentary cake and tea/coffee with milk is a nice touch if you have travelled a long way and not been able to get to the shops before arriving. The kitchen has everything you are likely to need and plenty of it. The property is tastefully furnished, you get a sofa each! and the view over to Catbells through the full length windows is fantastic. You also get to see a vast number of different birds feeding off the bird table, take binoculars and a book to identify them. We had a great, relaxing and refreshing stay not least in part due to the quality of the accommodation and I am sure that we will be back. It was our first time but a sure sign that a property is doing things right is to check the visitors book, there were couples who had been six or seven times. The TV reception didn't work to well in the kitchen and we didn't try the one in the bedroom but I know you don't go to the Lakes to watch telly. The info book could probably do with updating as some of the appliances had been replaced and the photos of this property definitely do not do it justice. These are minor quibbles really and we would certainly recommend this property if you want to get away from it all for a relaxing break in the country.

"High quality accommodation in a stunning location"
This spacious cottage is well equipped and had everything we needed for an enjoyable and relaxing week. Amazing views and great walks on the doorstep. We hope to return again soon.

This is an amazing property, perfect for a couple. From the minute we walked in it didn't fail to meet our expectations. It is well fitted out with quality appliances and very very comfortable. The bed gave us the best sleep we have had anywhere, it is huge and the room is lovely and dark, perfect for sleeping. The location is perfect for walkers and the extensive garden is a great habitat for a wide range of wildlife. Keswick is a short drive away (or a good walk!) and here you can get everything you might need. The owner maintains the property to a high standard and everything is spotlessly clean.
