About 1 Swinside Cottages

1 Swinside Cottages is a semi-detached holiday cottage located on the west side of the Whinlatter Pass. It sits in an acre of land with a stream running through it. Built in the 1930s, it was formerly the residence of foresters working for the forestry commission.

The current owners have owned the cottage for over fifty years and are active fell walkers. The house underwent major refurbishment in 2008 and now provides lovely comfortable self-catering accommodation in the heart of Wainwright’s north western fells.

There is outstanding scenery on all sides with forest walks and fell-walking from the house.

Within the local area (within one mile) is the Whinlatter Forest Centre with walking, mountain biking, numerous trails, a café, restaurant and many amusements for children.

Nearby lakes include Bassenthwaite three miles, Loweswater five miles and Derwentwater six miles. The pretty village of Lorton is just two miles and Braithwaite (with village shop) is three, both having country pubs providing meals.

Keswick and Cockermouth are six miles away and are both pleasant market towns with supermarkets and swimming pools and Keswick has a theatre, cinema and numerous tourist facilities and attractions.
