Able to sleep four people in two rooms – one double and one with adult bunks – this is a great property for a family looking to explore the beauty of this region.

Nestled on a hillside above the tiny village of Backbarrow is this attractive terraced Lakeland property. Just a stone's throw from the southern tip of Lake Windermere and with breathtaking views of the surrounding fells, this charming property is well-equipped and thoughtfully presented. The cottage also comes with a modern fitted kitchen and a living room with open fire and dining area, as well as a beautiful garden – giving guests the chance to enjoy al fresco dining on warm summer nights or a mug of something hot by the fire in winter.


The cottage was well appointed with everything you might need. It has a lovely garden with beautiful views. The owner was really helpful and friendly.

Mr Mellor

Whiteholme Cottage was beautiful and really homely. It was situated within a great location and I particularly liked the views and open fire.
Miss Martindale

A superb cottage which was cosy and welcoming, ideal for a small family. The garden and views are stunning. The log fire was lovely, and there were super views form the bedroom too. A great spot to reach the Lakes and coast.
Mrs Adin-Christie

A fantastic cottage in a perfect location for exploring the Lake District. The cottage was a real home from home, very comfortable and relaxing. We walked our socks off and enjoyed coming back to the cottage to put our feet up. It was recommended by my sister who visited last year and I will recommend it to anyone that asks!
