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!

Wetherlam

A delightful, stone-built detached cottage situated on the owners' farm in the quiet hamlet of Subberthwaite, just five miles from Broughton-in-Furness and nine miles from Coniston Water. This secluded cottage has been individually styled to provide a first-class romantic retreat. It boasts a lovely open plan living area with woodburning stove, and a cosy sitting area with a glazed stable door providing spectacular views down the valley towards the Coniston Old Man. A well-equipped kitchen and dining area, a lovely main bedroom and a shower room provide comfortable holiday accommodation in a wonderful area. This Lake District cottage is ideal for a couple to get away from it all and enjoy Lakeland living at its very best. This Lake District cottage is a perfect base to explore this wild and remote area. A public footpath runs straight past this Lake District cottage and allows easy access to beautiful fells and moorland. A traditional 14th century pub is two miles away and a number of activities can be enjoyed in the area including; horse riding, boating, sailing, fishing, swimming, walking, climbing, pony-trekking and mountain biking.

Walking

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.
