Description

A fine barn conversion with fantastic gardens, Croft House is light and airy, getting the best of the sunshine.

The main focal point is the magnificent sitting room with its tall ceilings, chandaliers and comfy sofas. This is a great party room for groups or extended families. This room also has a dining area with a large table comfortably seating twelve people. The gardens are fantastic and there is a secret garden over the little stream which children (and adults) love to explore.

Lamplugh is a great starting point for exploring the Lake District. Loweswater is your nearest lake, three miles away, and has lovely lakeside walks with an award winning pub at the end! Ennerdale lake is four miles in the opposite direction and has been described as the Lake District's loneliest valley - here there are still more sheep than people, and you can climb up some of the Lake District's highest mountains.

Other outdoor activities nearby include pony trekking,

Location description from owner

The England region

The Lake District is a great place to come on holiday. There is beauty in all the seasons, from frosty weather in Winter where you will occasionally see sheep huddled under a blanket of snow, to the long balmy evenings in the Summer. My favourite time of year is September and October where the Autumn colours are magnificent.

The daffodils in March/April and bluebells in May are just beautiful, and very restful.

Cockermouth

Scafell is England's highest mountain and a half hour drive takes you to the bottom, ready for the big climb up. The thing about the Lake District is that all the mountains here are manageable in a (sometimes long) day. If you don't fancy big climbs, then there are lovely walks through woods and alongside the lakes.

For a bit of adventure there is plenty to suit every level of experience - rock climbing, canoeing, abseiling, mountain biking, pony trekking and Go Ape at Whinlatter. All these experiences within half an hour of Croft House.

There are some superb stately homes, many of which are still lived in. Muncaster Castle is my favourite but there are plenty of others to choose from.

And if you have kids there is an indoor play area at Cockermouth (if it's raining). I like Trotters Exotic Animal Farm at Bassenthwaite. The outdoor play area at Whinlatter is amazing, and free (although you need to pay for parking). There is an aquarium at Maryport which is worth a visit (again, good if it's raining).

Other activities include rowing on the lake at Derwentwater (Keswick), go karting at Maryport or Rowrah, museums at Whitehaven and Keswick (I particularly like the Puzzling Place in Keswick, my kids like the Pencil Museum in Keswick and the Beacon at Whitehaven).

We go to the Kirkstile Inn at Loweswater for food. Cockermouth also has some very good restaurants - the Quince and Medlar is a veggie restaurant with a good reputation. The Bitter End is a good pub with good food.

Cockermouth is a lovely town with independent shops and a Sainsbury's. If antiques are your thing, you can spend a happy couple of hours browsing in Cockermouth. There is a small cinema here too, but if you want a multi-screen cinema, go to Dunmail Park in Workington. Workington also has high street shopping.
