About the property

Gorgeous cottage with 2 bedrooms, for 4 guests, 2 miles to Keswick

The Sett is in a beautiful converted barn located at Brackenrigg country estate, (with lots of wildlife, including red squirrels) located just outside Keswick in the very heart of the Lake District National Park, stunning views to Helvellyn and the Dodd range of fells, in the beautiful Naddle valley - just 2 miles south of Keswick, and a 10min drive from Grasmere; with 5 acres of gardens, meadow and woodland to enjoy, we think you'll find our cottage an ideal spot to base your holiday.

The Sett has 2 bedrooms; one double, one twin with an additional z-bed suitable for a child. There is a well appointed family bathroom with shower over the bath. Large open plan living/dining/kitchen area with views out to Helvellyn and through the huge barn style floor to ceiling windows to the fellside behind. Bird and red squirrel feeders close to the cottage give you the best chance to view our wildlife visitors!

The lovely gardens & grounds at Brackenrigg include the ball-game paddock and woodland, home to red squirrels, badgers, buzzards & owls; you can hike straight from the door, or use as the perfect base from which to explore the Lake District.

About Judy

Brackenrigg is a wonderful spot; views from the front of the cottages of the Helvellyn range of fells - a stunning uninterupted vista from far left to far right. Being just 2 miles from Keswick, we have all the amenities on the door step - but live in a beautiful rural landscape. Walking from the door is a great pleasure, valleys, or stiffer climbs to suit the mood, and being located in the very heart of the park - most areas of the Lake District are within an easy drive.

We love the gardens, woodland; and wildlife here - badgers, red squirrels, deer, owls, song birds and birds of prey, pheasants.

We are delighted to welcome you to this beautiful pla

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've had a great week, weather has been brilliant. James's first time up Cat Bells made all the more exciting as there was a gyroplane flying around the top with the pilot waving to us! A fun packed holiday, we dont want to go home! Thank you for such a wonderful stay in a lovely cottage!
