Nestled deep in the Lake District, all our cottages have an abundance of stunning scenery, perfect for walkers, families and stays with a pet. Whether you’re looking for a romantic break, a cosy retreat with a log fire, lake views, or a luxury pet friendly cottage, we have a place that’s just right for you.

Swallows House is a spacious, luxury house situated in the tiny hamlet of Skelwith Fold, which enjoys stunning views over the River Brathay. Set in a large, well maintained garden, it is a haven for a great variety of birds and wildlife. It provides an excellent base for walking or touring the surrounding fells and lakes.

Parts of the house date back to the 17th century. Every room is beautifully appointed, with high quality furnishings. The ground floor features a large lounge with log-burning fire place and bay window, an elegant dining room with large oak table, a snug/sitting room with French doors opening onto the garden patio, kitchen with range cooker and circular granite breakfast table, games room, study, boot room and shower room/WC.

Upstairs there are four tastefully furnished, spacious bedrooms (2 king-sized, 1 double & 1 twin), all with breath-taking views. The en-suite and family bathrooms are fitted with Villeroy Boch.
