    Tanglewood is a 16th century fortified farmhouse, of the type known locally as a 'Bastle House'. Such bastles were common in this area of Cumbria. Built in traditional Lakeland style with its thick stone walls, the house and the adjacent buildings were restored to self catering properties in 2000.

    The house has been designed with the larger self catering party in mind, with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
    The entire house boasts a cosy decor, with bright, spacious rooms with views of the countryside. The kitchen is large and spacious -perfect for serving up hearty meals, while afternoon teas on the terrace taking in the views that stretch as far as the eye can see.

    Set in splendid walking country - deep in the Cumbrian countryside, the house is surrounded by an area of natural...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We had a lovely stay. The barn was warm and cosy and we thoroughly enjoyed our late winter week. We even had some bright sunny days which was an unexpected bonus, and as may bright starry nights.The owners were very helpful and even took time out to bake us some delicious scones during our holiday.Plenty of thing to do but we particularly wanted to explore the history of Hadrians wall and spend time visiting local Towns and villages. I was able to complete my 6K run every morning, Lovely quite lane with just the sound of singing birds and a few horse riders, and I also managed to stroll along the numerous local right of way foot paths on the door step of the property. Our little girl loved being free in a huge secure garden and she was besotted with the alpacas. I think I was a little taken with them myself, they were lovely animals, friendly, very curious and interested in their surrounding and us. We also visited a lovely little village for a picnic near the river close to the... more

I did a lot of internet research to find the perfect place to stay in Cumbria and I think I found it in Tanglewood. If, like me, you value being within striking distance of a totally different experience every day of your holiday, I don't think you could find a better place to stay. Whilst the area is not the liveliest in the world, it's certainly very picturesque, reminiscent of the country springtime I remember as a child. Everything you need is close by, with county pubs, an excellent pizzeria, bakery and supermarket facilities within 15 minutes' drive of the house.
The house itself is perched on top of a hill with great views of the surrounding hills. There's a lovely terrace which overlooks natural ponds that attracts amazing wildlife and the alpacas were a delight to watch. We liked the size of the place - three big bedrooms, of which we only needed two - and spacious, The family bathroom is large and spotlessly clean. It is very obvious the house is very well maintained...
