Description from owner

Description

Southwaite Green is in an area of peace and tranquillity in the Lorton Vale, almost mid-way between Cockermouth and Lorton both 2 miles away, Keswick is 9 miles to the east. Within a short drive are the less frequented western lakes Crummock, Loweswater, Buttermere and Ennerdale, winner of Britain's Best View. There are ample walking and cycling opportunities from the door and a wealth of shops and restaurants can be found in both Cockermouth and Keswick.

The properties sit on Paddle Beck giving a peaceful ambience together with 10 acres of grounds including young woodland, wildlife meadow, pond and arboretum. Consequently there is an abundance of wildlife including deer, foxes, red squirrels, badgers and the occasional kingfisher that visits the beck.

Southwaite Green consists of four cottages that were developed in 2007 by the owner, who lives on site, to an extremely high standard. The cottages have an abundance of local timber used by local craftsmen to retain the traditional character and wherever possible used the original timbers from the barn. They have been painstakingly converted using “green design and technologies” with ground and air source heat pumps to power the under floor heating beneath the slate and oak floors. A design feature has been the use of solar panels and the positioning of the windows to generate maximum solar heating to produce the heating and hot water. Great attention to detail has been paid to ensure that these are eco-friendly properties, including organic bedding and towels, handmade furniture from sustainable sources and even to the extent of using eco-friendly paints. The owners have gone to great trouble to ensure the properties have a low 'carbon foot-print' and to ensure your holiday is an enjoyable experience.

The development briefly comprises two, two bedroom/two shower ensuite cottages, Skiddaw and Esther's Barn. In these cottages there are twin beds in one of the bedrooms that can be put together to make a super king size. Buttermere is a ground floor two bedroom cottage which is specially adapted for disabled use with mobility one and two rating and Beckside is a three bedroom, three bathroom house (twin/super king size in the downstairs bedroom). The properties have been given the much acclaimed Gold Award from the Green Tourism Scheme.

“Beautiful cottage and scenery, so peaceful and relaxing”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2015

We had a wonderful stay at Southwaite Green. Skiddaw cottage had everything we could possibly need and is finished to an impeccably high standard. The upstairs open plan living area is very spacious with beautiful views. The large ensuite bedrooms have lovely comfy beds and we slept extremely well. Felt so relaxed and peaceful being there, it's a special place in a special setting. Can highly highly recommend.
