The space

Manesty is a beautiful three bedroom attached farmhouse cottage in Borrowdale, in the heart of the Lake District.

The cottage dates back to mediaeval times and has retained a wealth of original features, from a great slate table in the hallway to exposed beams and meat hooks in the kitchen and the original thumb-latch doors. We've furnished it in a country cottage style, with antiques and pretty bedspreads. The cottage now has a fully reburbished kitchen, complete with wood burning stove and underfloor heating. It is perfect for a family or a group of friends of up to 7.

***Please note, except for last minute bookings, Manesty is let on a weekly basis (Saturday-Saturday) between Easter and October. But do message us for a special offer or last minute deal - we always have great discounts between September and March.***

THE COTTAGE
There are 3 bedrooms: 2 double rooms and 1 family room with a double and a single bed. There is a bathroom/wc on the first floor and a shower room/wc on the ground floor.

There is a cosy traditional sitting room at the front of the cottage looking out over the Borrowdale valley.

The big country kitchen has a comfy sitting area so you can enjoy the fire in comfort, and a farmhouse table for sociable dinners. There's a dishwasher and all the cooking equipment you'll need. The washing machine and tumble drier is in separate utility room.

Outside an old garden gate leads to a gravelled area with seating, lawn and panoramic views of Borrowdale. There's parking for one car by the cottage and more off road parking nearby.

Beautiful area with a dozen hikes right from the front door. Not far from Keswick and neighboring village restaurants. Excellent wifi. Quiet too. Kids loved watching the surrounding animals too. Recommended.

My husband, parents and I all had a lovely stay at the Manesty Cottages. It was a perfect place for walks in the countryside, and accessible by car and bus from Keswick. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were well taken care of by Alan & Cheryl. Our favorite walk was probably up…
