About Neil

We bought this property in June 2014 as we felt there simply was no better spot to have a holiday home in the Lake District. Spacious, versatile, private, great views, full of charm and character, loads of good walks from the doorstep and a great pub a short distance away. The village is nestled in a picturesque setting at the foot of Blencathra and has amenities including children's play facilities. This is our own holiday home and has had a full refurbishment making it a comfortable, clean and relaxing environment whatever the weather!
