Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Wetherlam is an ideal get away for a couple or a couple with 2 children. There is a separate bunk room, but we would only recommend it for children.
Cooked Birch is situated off the beaten track near the southern tip of Coniston Water. Despite being in a quiet and secluded area, there is easy access to the main A5092 between Broughton in Furness, Coniston and Ulveston.
Crooked Birch offers two Self Catering cottages. Both are perfect for couples. Wetherlam has its own log burning stove, and also has a Bunk Room to cater for two children. Langdale is accessed via steps and has a beautiful bathroom to relax in. Both properties are furnished to 3 star standard, and even above if we do say so ourselves!

Crooked Birch is a great base for walks. Just outside our main gate begins the path over Great Burney. This hill is featured in Wainrights 'Outlying Fells' and is arguably one of the most underrated walks in the Lake District. Its panorama is one of the best that you will find, with the summit viewing the Old Man of Coniston, Dow Crag, Scaffel and Morcambe Bay.
Other walks over Subberthwaite Knott, the Cumbria Way, and Beacon Fell are a short distance from our doorstep.

Crooked Birch is situated in the 'triangle' between the A593 (Broughton to Torver), A5084 (Torver to Lowick) and the A5092/595 (Greenodd to Broughton). We are near the southern tip of Coniston Water, and the source of the river Crake. The fell we are surrounded by is quiet and peaceful but yet there is easy access to all the Lake District has to offer.
Ulverston, festival town, is the nearest centre for shops and night life at about 8 miles.
