Bush Cottage is a cosy two bedroom terraced cottage in the quiet village of Tallentire, near Cockermouth, on the North Western edge of the Lake District National Park.

Originally a farm worker’s cottage, dating back to the 1850s, it has recently been refurbished to provide modern and comfortable accommodation, although it retains original features. There is a cosy living room with wood burning stove, dining room, kitchen, one double, one twin bedroom with travel cot, and bathroom with electric shower. Outside there is a private garden with lawn, patio area, barbecue and furniture. 

The cottage is near the village pub, which serves prize-winning real ales and food. It makes a convenient base from which to explore the lesser known western lakes and fells, and the unspoilt Solway coast. Tallentire is only three miles from the popular market town of Cockermouth. Keswick, on the shores of Derwentwater, is only 15 miles away, and the historic border city of Carlisle is 20 miles. 

Sorry, no pets.
