    103 square metres. Award winning Southwaite Green consists of four cottages develooped in 2007 by the owner, who lives on site, to a very high standard (5 star and Green Tourism Gold). The properties sit on Paddle Beck giving a peaceful ambience, in 10 acres of grounds including young woodlands, wildlife meadows, wild swimming pond and arboretum. So there is lots of wildlife including deer, foxes, red squirrels, badgers, owls and the occasional kingfisher that visits the beck. A grass court is available for games, croquet, short tennis and badminton.

    The work of local craftsmen retained traditional character and wherever possible re cycled the original timbers from the barns. The cottages have been painstakingly constructed using green d...

    How to get there
    Railway: Maryport: 9.9 mi
    From the M6 take the A66 turn off at the Penrith junction, towards Keswick. You can stop off at Keswick and shop at Booths supermarket (usually voted the best supermarket in Britain) to get your holiday off to a great start with local provisions. Continue on the A66 to the Cockermouth roundabout, turning left onto the Egremont road. A mile or so down that road, immediately after the rumble strips, turn left at Paddle School. Continue down this country road, admiring the view which opens before you, and follow round almost a right angle turn to the left. At the bottom of that straight, opposite a new barn, turn left into the double gates of Southwaite Green.

We have stayed in the Lake District a few times now and decided on this occasion to stay in the countryside of Cumbria rather than by one of the more popular lakes which we have enjoyed but wanted to try something different. We loved the accommodation and the natural grounds which we very much enjoyed coming back to after a... more

We had a wonderful week self-catering at Southwaite Green at the beginning of April. On arrival Marna gave us a most friendly welcome. The accommodation was very comfortable and well equipped. We quickly got used to its efficient eco underfloor heating! The upside down living is an excellent idea to take full advantage of the great views of farmland and... more
