Heckbarley offers comfortable and well equipped self catering holiday accommodation which is situated within the Lake District National Park in the village of Ennerdale Bridge. It is perfectly located for exploring both the beautiful unspoilt Western Lakes and the coast - providing the perfect place to escape and relax.
The holiday cottage is just a short stroll from the pub in the village serving great food and the playground for children.
Tranquil Ennerdale Water (see photo) is just a mile from the cottage and unlike most of the large lakes in the National Park, it does not have a public road running along its shoreline, adding to the peace and tranquility of this haven for wildlife.
For those who enjoy walking, Ennerdale provides forest and lakeside walks at a low level, along with more challenging high fells routes. Alfred Wainwright's Coast to Coast Long Distance Path goes past the cottage's front door as it works its way through Ennerdale. Cyclists too will not be disappointed with the C2C Cycle path, excellent for off-road fun, close by.
