About Heather Rhodes

We bought the cottage in August 2014 and have fully renovated and refurbished it to create this lovely holiday home. We live only a few miles away but still love to stay at the cottage ourselves, we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. Now the cottage is finished we can spend our weekends walking in the fells or canoeing on Coniston Water again.

Heather Rhodes purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Heather Rhodes chose Kirkby Ireleth

This is the real Cumbria, becks and rivers winding down to the estuary and out to the open sea, Fells with open access and views of the stunning mountains behind.

On the edge of the national park, it is away from the busy tourist hot spots of the Lake District, yet just a short drive from them. This makes it an ideal base to explore the Cumbrian coastline and the south lakes. The west coast of Cumbria has been described as the ‘un spoiled’ area of the lake district and there are many walks with beautiful views right from the cottage. This area has been a favourite of ours for many years.

there are several road cycle and off road cycle routes in the area. There is always something to do no matter what the weather, day Spa packages available at locations only 15 mins drive from the cottage, ask the owner for details.

We had such a wonderful time with our family. The cottage was delightful, as was our chance meeting with Heather. All we could have asked for and more. Very clean. Very well kept, and a great location from which to explore the Lakes District. Highly recommend this cottage!!

Cosy cottage for a perfect break away

  • 5 of 5

This was a proper cottage done out to a very good standard & immaculately clean. Even a bottle of wine & fudge to welcome us on arrival! We felt at home here and it was great to return to after a good days walking. There is a good pub just across the road. Good walks in the surrounding area and handy for the rest of the Lakes. Would definitely return.

Good value for money, cottage for 4

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage, very clean with v well equipped kitchen. Friendly pub just a stone's throw away that also served a good meal for a reasonable price. We found lots to do around Lake Windermere, Lake Coniston but also ideal to just enjoy a peaceful time if that's what you want. Lovely owners who very kindly left us cake and a nice bottle of red for our arrival. We experienced no problems during our stay but we were made to feel it would be no trouble to contact the owners if that were to be the case. Highly recommended. Julie Butcher and family.

A delightful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Obviously recently renovated and to a high standard, this was a lovely place to stay while we were in the Lakes. A nice touch was the owner leaving fresh milk, a bottle of wine and a cake for us. We would happily stay here again.

Travel:

We recommend the use of a car to get the most from your holiday.

A bus service runs from the village and connects to nearby villages and towns.

Grizebeck is a small village, the petrol station has a post office, taxi service and shop, it sells basic provisions including logs and sticks for the fire.

The Greyhound Inn in the village serves a selection of real ales, wines and good food.

More shops, cafes and restaurants can be found in the neighbouring village of Broughton-in-Furness, 3 miles away.

The nearest supermarket is Booths in Ulverston 7 miles away

There is a good fish and chip shop in Greenodd 5 miles

Cumbria coastal way passes by the village.

The Cumbia way passes within 2 miles of the cottage.

There are many footpaths on the surrounding fells with stunning views of the mountains and coastline.

The Cumbrian mountains are a short drive away, a selection of Wainwright books are in the cottage.

If you are new to mountain walking and would like guidance, we can source a qualified mountain leader to guide you or you and your family safely on the mountains (daily fee payable to the guide)

This is an ideal area for both road cycling and off road cycling.

The west coast of Cumbria has some of the country’s best motor biking roads. We can point you in the right direction or come and explore for yourself.

River and lake sports including fishing, canoeing and sailing are nearby, Coniston water and Windermere are the closest lakes.

The tourist attractions of the south Lakes are all within a short driving distance (most within a 15 minute drive) the list is too long to mention, a selection of leaflets is in the cottage.

Our favourite places are:

Dalton wild life Zoo park

Lakeside-Haverthwaite steam train

The Lakes Aquarium

Ravenglass-Eskdale small gauge railway

Muncaster castle and Gardens

Honister slate mine and via ferrata

Holker Hall and gardens

Coniston Steam Yacht Gondola
