Nestled on peaceful Loughrigg Fell, Tarn House is a lovingly restored four-star period property at the gateway to the spectacular Langdale valleys.

Offering cosy, stylish and very well-equipped self-catering accommodation for families and groups of up to eight people, Tarn House mixes traditional features including Victorian tiling and inglenook fireplace with the latest amenities, from large LCD TVs, DVDs and Wi-Fi to supersized soak-baths – and a beautiful garden – to give you a home-from-home holiday at any time of year.

Tarn House forms the private wing of a Victorian gentleman's residence, built at the end of the 19th century. The cottage features two secluded patio areas, parking for up to three cars and a large private fellside garden with extensive views towards the Coniston massif and Langdale Pikes.

Much thought has gone into what is provided here for comfort and entertainment. The kitchen is particularly well stocked with baking and cooking utensils in addition to ample crockery and cutlery - although a few more teaspoons would have been good to have! more

The seven of us all truly loved Tarn House. Loads of space. Gorgeous garden with stunning views. Very well equipped kitchen. Super bathrooms. Loved having the wood burner on in the evenings and having more than enough eating and sofa space for us to all be together. Close to local amenities but not too close to feel "Bowness" touristy.
