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.


Breath taking!
Myself and my husband stayed here in September 2016. It was beautiful a great location to access the lakes we visited so many that we needed another holiday, the cottage was well equipped like home from home lovely and clean and warm, we watched the birds from the kitchen in the mornings. We lit the fire in the evenings, super cosy. The bed was really comfy with lovely bedding. The garden was beautiful with far stretching views there was a Booths supermarket a 10 min drive down the road. We had excellent weather during our stay very lucky. The host Barbara was lovely and knowledgeable there were a great selection of guides in the cottage (great for lake district first timers).

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.

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.
