Mireside Farmhouse, Bassenthwaite, Keswick, Cumbria
Mireside Farmhouse is just one of many properties, looked after by Lakeland Cottage Holidays. This cosy and family friendly holiday cottage can be found in a secluded spot in the Bassenthwaite meadowlands near Keswick and provides guests with comfortable and homely self catering accommodation for up to 8 people. We are ideally located for exploring Cumbria & the Lake District National Park.
Our holiday home has a rural and traditional feel, while still benefiting from modern comforts. The solid stone house is a 17th century listed building and is carpeted throughout, with the exception of a beautiful sandstone floor in the kitchen and a rugged slate floor in the boot room. Externally there is a traditional farmyard and a large garden with a small stream running through it. The kitchen/diner and lounge are one large area. The lounge has comfortable sofa´s for eight, a wood burner and flat screen TV with DVD player. There is an additional, separate, lounge with sofa´s and another flat screen TV. In the dining area, a large pine farmhouse table seats 8 comfortably. The kitchen is equipped with a large fridge with separate freezer compartment, a dishwasher, a fan assisted oven, a microwave and a full sized hob plus all the usual utensils and a plentiful supply of crockery & cutlery.
There are three twin and one double all upstairs. All rooms are bright and well lit. There is space for a cot in the double and one of the twin rooms. There is an upstairs bathroom with shower & WC upstairs and a ground floor shower room with WC.
Outside of the holiday home there is a yard and buildings, all belong to the house. There is lighting in the adjoining barn and the large barn at the rear where cars and boats can be stored. The large garden is cut regularly and benches and tables and a barbecue are provided. A small stream runs at the bottom of the garden and the view to Skiddaw is beautiful. We welcome one pet on the understanding that it does not enter the bedrooms and that the gardens are left clean for children to play.
Mireside is roughly equidistant from Keswick and Cockermouth. The latter is a pleasant market town with a good range of shops and several small supermarkets including Sainsbury’s. It also has less traffic congestion in the busy season. Mirehouse also has a play area for children and has previously won the national title as ‘the best property to visit for families´ in a poll of visitors to country houses. From Mireside you can walk to Bassenthwaite Lake.
