About Us Herdwick View

Our newly refurbished luxury holiday cottage, Herdwick View, will be open to visitors from August 2018 – see the calendar below to check availability and prices. Originally part of the estate at Armathwaite Hall, this was once a bustling home to the staff that would go on to work at the Hall, before sadly falling into disrepair in recent years. We’ve been working hard to bring it back to life and we’re so proud that our efforts have paid off – it’s now a wonderful, luxury Lakeland cottage, the perfect place to stay for anyone looking to visit the North Lake District.

Sleeping up to eight people, Herdwick View boasts four luxurious, en-suite bedrooms; one on the ground floor with king size bed and walk-in shower in the bathroom, and three first floor bedrooms that have all been finished to the highest standard. Enjoy woodland views in the first, which also features a king size bed and en-suite facilities that include a feature bath and walk in shower; the second bedroom again boasts a king size bed, as well as a window seat overlooking views across the garden and a well-appointed en-suite bathroom; the final bedroom features a double bed and en-suite shower room.

Families and travelling groups will love the welcoming lounge with Smart TV and sound bar, and a log-burning stove to turn those winter nights from cold to cosy, perfect for relaxing on the comfortable leather sofas. The kitchen and dining room have been superbly appointed, with a five-ring electric hob, electric double oven, microwave, dishwasher, American style fridge freezer, wine cooler and even a TV in the kitchen, as well as a splendid island unit and granite worktops. The dining room features beautiful picture windows and opens up to the first of two patios.

The cottage offers plenty of privacy for guests, screened on two sides by woodland, with a private drive and gate leading to enough parking for four cars. There are still fab views to enjoy though, with the grounds opening up to the south west – our south facing patio is ideal for enjoying the views and soaking up the sun. There is also a larger patio to the side of the house with dining furniture, which is perfect for eating al fresco in the summer, as well as a covered outdoor summer house with Sonos sound system and outdoor heaters.

Herdwick View has been part of our family since the 1930s and we’re delighted to have been able to restore it to its former glory. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
