Enjoying an elevated position above the traditional Lakeland village of Backbarrow, they are close to the Cartmel Peninsula, the Leven Estuary, and the southern edge of Lake Windermere at Newby Bridge. Many of the Lake District’s favourite towns are also a short drive away.

Our luxury cottages are part of a private estate, and have been developed with beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces for you to enjoy. The estate is a rural idyll with a tarn/lake, and the six luxury cottages each have their own hot tub for your exclusive use. This is an unrivalled luxury retreat.

Why choose a luxury break in the Lakes?

More than 15.8 million visitors head to the Lake District every year, drawn by its romantic landscape. And with 2,362 square km of lakes, waters, meres, fells, valleys and mountains to explore, there’s plenty of space for everyone!

Last year, the Lakes became a World Heritage Site. We can’t think of a better reason to come and explore our area. And if you enjoy a touch of luxury, our cottages are ideal – in fact, you can take in the beauty of the landscape without even leaving your bed thanks to our enviable location and the views outside our windows.

The Lake District is one of the UK’s most stunning and ancient landscapes and I am thrilled it has been granted World Heritage Site status. It is a unique part of the world, that combines a vibrant farming community with thousands of archaeological sites and structures that give us an amazing glimpse into our past.

Reviews of our Lake District luxury cottages

Hazel Cottage is, by far, the best cottage we have stayed in and I would recommend it as the ideal holiday home. The furnishings and design are contemporary and the views are spectacular. You must book this cottage!

The pictures do not do the cottage justice! The view over the valley was breath-taking. Everything was excellent! The accommodation was better than described, and the price was exceptionally fair considering the facilities.

Absolutely stunning cottage in a stunning location!
