Description

Set on a working farm in the heart of rural Cumbria, Oakbank Cottage is the epitome of a traditional farm worker’s cottage, lovingly restored to create a quality holiday retreat. Cleverly designed to take best advantage of the views towards Blencathra and to the rear of the Belah Valley (and former Belah Viaduct) from the first floor living areas, guests will marvel at the open landscape, dotted with sheep farmed by the neighbour and be assured of a comfortable stay.
The cottage has excellent facilities with quality kitchen and bathrooms and has been dressed with comfortable furnishings to compliment the large amount of beams and solid oak throughout the property. The wood burning stove is at the very heart of the cottage, the lounge full of exposed beams and having deep window sills giving further opportunity to take in more of that view.
