This beautiful modern cottage is located in the town of Cockermouth in the Lake District and can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

Skiddaw is a fabulous 'upside-down' modern holiday home located at the exclusive and award-winning Southwaite Green development. The ground floor bedrooms, 1 double and 1 zip link twin that converts to a double on request, are both en-suite with showers, while the fabulous fully open plan living/dining/kitchen accommodation on the first floor has magnificent views over nearby Skiddaw mountain which are best enjoyed from the private terrace. There's off-road parking for 1 car at the property, plus more across the stream, and 10 acres of wonderful woodland and wildlife to explore.

For total tranquility with the lively town of Keswick just 9 miles away, Skiddaw is the perfect holiday base for a family or two couples to enjoy the glories of the Lake District at any time of year.

Wonderful accommodation and location
Skiddaw is one of a set of 4 'cottages' set in 10 beautiful, semi-wild acres of land. It seems like it is in the middle of nowhere but is only 2 miles from Cockermouth. We stayed in Buttermere, which is without doubt the best self-catering accommodation we have ever stayed in. It was contemporary,spacious, with great views. Two sets of double doors led out onto a lovely southfacing garden and patio, with the beck only a couple of meters away. We looked at all cottages as we will definitely come back, and Skiddaw looked great too. The eco-theme was fascinating and clearly there has been lots of thought and innovative developments so it just felt good to be there. We could take our two dogs which was a huge bonus, and it was lovely taking them out round teh grounds (which include a pond for swimming) and fabulous views of the Skiddaw and other mountains. I would highly recommend any of the 4 cottages. Buttermere and Skiddaw would be my favourites.

Fantastic relaxing break in a beautiful area
We arrived late at night and the key was in the door of the cottage with the place lovely and warm and ready for us. We were given organic veg, chocolate, beer and plum cake as a gift! The cottage was beautifully done out inside with gorgeous sheep fleece rugs, an amazing view out of upstairs, and the bathrooms were fantastic with a walk in shower in the guest bedroom. It is located close to Loweswater and Crummock Water and Keswick is easily accessible for a cream tea! We ate at Cottage in the Woods and the Kirkstile Inn which I would thoroughly recommend to anybody - they both offer amazing food and are roughly 10mins drive away. We loved the views from the windows, excellent location and space offered by the cottage. The drying cupboard for our wet clothes was also a lovely extra! There aren't any negative points of our stay - I would definitely recommend this place (and already have done).

Very relaxing comfortable stay ina beautiful setting
The cottage was lovely - finished to a high spec with no detail left out! The cottage embraces all that is eco=friendly and we enjoyed supporting this. The area is emerging and will be lovely as the planting grows and develops. Cockermouth was surprisingly lovely with independant shops and restaurants.
