With two bedrooms, this cottage has been tastefully and considerately restored to offer accommodation for up to three people, making it an idyllic hideaway for small families.

This stone-built cottage offers privacy and seclusion for couples or small families looking to spend some time together. All the accommodation is laid out over a single storey and is arranged in an open-plan style. The views of Morecambe Bay and the Kentmere Valley are truly remarkable and the shared grounds give visitors the opportunity to indulge in a spot of alfresco dining during the hazy summer evenings. In the colder months, the property is turned into a warm and cosy snug, being heated by storage radiators and an atmospheric wood-burning stove.


The property information is very misleading. The setting is wonderful with fabulous views and access easy to great walks. Thankfully the weather was fantastic so we could be out all day until late evening because the cottage itself was a huge disappointment. Overlooked by two other large holiday lets at full capacity, with eleven cars at one count, all lovely people, but not at all what we had expected. The cottage was dusty, not clean and had an awful smell that we couldn't get rid of. The fixtures and fittings are way past sell by date. Can't understand how it has achieved its rating or pricing level. Awful.

Ghyll Bank Bungalow is in a beautiful location, with a beautiful view.

My partner and I have just come back after spending a long weekend in the bungalow at Ghyll Bank. The piece and quiet we found there was very welcome and inspires us to return for a longer stay in the very near future. We had our dog with us and I'm convinced he enjoyed it just as much as we did. The views of the fells are breathtaking and most memorable. The owners gave us clear and concise directions to the bungalow and made sure it was nice and warm for our arrival, they even tried to catch us twice to ensure we were ok but unfortunately on this occasion we didn't meet. Ample parking space, and fuel for the woodburner provided. Thank you Mr & Mrs B.

We had a wonderful stay and were very pleased with the Bungalow, in particular the instructions as it was a very dark night when we arrived. We were pleasantly surprised with not only the layout but the facilities within. The grounds and gardens were beautiful and added to the views it was spectacular. We'll be back!
Mr Stobie

The cottage is a lovely warm country style venue which is situated in a lovely location with outstanding views from the living room and dining area. It is tucked away from the everyday comings and goings of city life and gives you time to relax and enjoy the countryside. There are lots of hills and fields to wander on public foot paths...Outstanding!!!
