Dash Cottage

Dash Cottage is a pretty and cosy little Cumbrian cottage nestled in the north west of the Lake District. With lovely views over open countryside, the cottage is only 2 miles from Lake Bassenthwaite in the charming village of Embleton.

Offering affordable accommodation for 4 and their pets, this comfortable terraced cottage is the ideal location for a family or friends' holiday exploring the best that Cumbria has to offer at any time of year.

Dash Cottage has been comfortably and charmingly furnished by the owners for the warmest welcome. The cosy living room has a character open fire plus Freeview TV and DVD, while the modern fully equipped breakfast kitchen is beautifully light and airy. Upstairs there are two pretty bedrooms, one a king size double, one a twin, both with a lovely cottage feel and gorgeous views over open countryside. There's also a family bathroom with bathtub, separate shower cubicle and wash basin and WC.

The charming gravelled garden has a decked area with garden furniture, the ideal spot to enjoy your morning coffee, afternoon tea or sundowner after a busy day in the Lakes. Dash Cottage has private parking and a garage for secure storage of your bikes. A pretty cottage style garden at the front gives the cottage a green and pleasant outlook.

Almost at the foot of Skiddaw, Embleton is just 15 minutes from lively and bustling Keswick with its range of family attractions including the popular steamers on Derwentwater and the Kong indoor adventure centre. Dash Cottage is also ideally situated for an exploration of the less well known West Lakes including beautiful Buttermere. Grasmere fells and the pretty town of Grasmere are just 20 minutes by car.

Whether you want to visit Wordsworth's birthplace at nearby Cockermouth, take a picnic to one of the stunning beaches on the Solway coast or simply enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Lake District, there's so much to see and do in Britain's favourite country park. For walking, cycling, golf, family activities or simply a chance to relax and recharge your batteries, captivating Cumbria has it all.

With its lovely village location - there's a pub within walking distance - and proximity to all the tourist attractions in the North Lakes, Dash Cottage is the perfect family holiday home whatever the time of year.
