Sleeping two people in one bedroom, this terraced cottage is on a working farm a mile from Ravenglass.

Surprise View is a welcoming terraced cottage on a working farm a mile from Ravenglass. There is a ground floor super king-size double bedroom, which can be offered as a twin on request, with an en-suite shower room. Upstairs is an open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburner.

Outside there is use of shared mature gardens, and off road parking for two cars. With the National Park, narrow gauge railway and Muncaster Castle all within easy reach, Surprise View makes an ideal base for a couple, friends and walkers alike.


we loved the cottage, very relaxing with stunning views and loved watching the hens out of the kitchen window, the only negative was the tv which is very small but will definitely return

It was in December so we could not complain about the weather or the mud 9its a farm). It was clean and well furnished, reasonably close to places to go (rsteam railway, castle) - the highlight would be Wasdale & Wast Water where the mountains are reflected in a mirror-like lake which is quite shallow but appears to be as deep as the scree slopes are tall). The Hodgsons are a pleasant couple & there was no problem with our well-controlled dog. I would recommend it to anyone

Lovely apartment
Gorgeous views I expect when you have good weather . Close to Ravenglass and easy access to Coniston . Lovely owners too

It was peaceful, well maintained and within easy driving distance to all of the Lake District.

We loved how tucked away the location was, yet at the same time it is only a moments drive to some pretty spectacular lakes and historic landmarks. It suited our hiking plans and the dog to a tee. It was quiet, cosy and relaxing and the hosts were very considerate.
