Welcome to Wood Farm Self Catering
Cottages, situated in the Western Lake District in Cumbria, close
to one of Britain’s most picturesque valleys - Lorton Vale.
Nestling in the rural hamlet of Brandlingill, Wood Farm dates back
to the 17th century. In its heyday, it was one of the larger, more
prosperous farms in the area but nowadays, no longer a working farm,
the country way of life offers a home to the Cooley family.
holiday cottages have been tastefully converted from a disused barn
to create two very spacious and delightful self catering cottages
- Tithe Cottage and The Byre. Both cottages sleep 6 people in comfort
and provide visitors with all the modern amenities expected in a
luxury Lake District self catering cottage. One small pet is permitted
in The Byre only.
Brandlingill is a superb base to explore both the Lake District
and the historic Cumbrian coast. The lovely village of Lorton is
two miles away with a pub and a shop. The lakes of Bassenthwaite,
Buttermere, Crummock Water and Loweswater are all within a ten mile
radius and there are walks of varying degrees of difficulty from
the door or within a short drive.
market town of Cockermouth is only 4 miles away where you can find
the birthplace of Wordsworth. Take a scenic drive over Whinlatter
(the only mountain forest in England) to the stunning Lakeland market
town of Keswick where you find may speciality shops, cinema, galleries
and more. The harbour towns of Whitehaven and Maryport are twelve
miles West and a little further afield is the Solway Firth, a particular
favourite with ornithologists.
