Grading: 4 star
The two cottages are set around a small courtyard. The lounge and dining area are on the first floor with superb views over the fells. They are centrally heated for all year round use. A short walk from Midtown Cottages is the shop and the village hostelry "The Wheatsheaf" and a ten minute drive from the Kirkstile Inn.
A close inspection of your map will show the variety of walking from your cottage door.
A drive down the Vale of Lorton leads to Loweswater,
Crummock and Buttermere, three of the most perfect lakes amidst soaring
mountains. Cockermouth, Wordsworth's birthplace is 4 miles away. The
market town of Keswick
is just 8 miles away, reached by driving over the Whinlatter Pass.
