A farmhouse kitchen with butler sink, range cooker, and original cobbles from the cottage's history as the Coach House, housing the horse bays. Review: "Everything you need in the kitchen to cook hearty meals whilst friends sit at the farmhouse table and have a few glasses of wine."The original Coach House (Volcano is the one with the external staircase)... Review: "I had been to the Lakes many times but never this far West and it is really very quiet and all the more beautiful for it."

Volcano is a 180 year old converted coach house: open plan, yet cozy; quirky & unique - a welcoming home from home where you can relax and unwind.

Ideally placed for Scafell ascent route at Wasdale Head, C2C and with Lewis Carroll having found inspiration for Alice's Wonderland here - it's a special corner of the world.

We loved Volcano, there were many thoughtful touches by the hosts. Beds very comfortable & rooms spacious. There was everything we could possibly need. Lots of DVD’s, books, board games to keep everyone busy! Would highly recommend Volcano. Thank you to the hosts!

A great Lakeland retreat ‘off the grid’. Beautifully presented and interestingly quirky, this is a lovely little base in the western lakes not far from the coast. I’ll be back for a longer stay!

Absolutely stunning property in a really quiet part of the Lakes. Just round the corner from the best Lake in the Lake District; Wastwater. The home is stunning with some really lovely touches. It accommodated 9 of us comfortably. Caroline and Carl are brilliant hosts.
