About the Owner

I live here with my two children, having moved to Cumbria in 2001 to live a rural life in the beautiful Lake District National Park.

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 3 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.

I am delighted to welcome you to this beautiful place
