A perfect get away for two set amongst the rolling hills in a quiet corner of the Lake District National Park close to the many and varied attractions that make the Lake District - a UNESCO world heritage site - and the Furness Peninsular world famous.

The Visit England 4 star rated cottage with its own private entrance from a quiet lane has been built in the style of our adjacent Victorian School master’s house. The luxurious accommodation designed for two people is all on one level and is centrally heated for comfort whatever the weather.

The cottage has a sitting room and kitchen area, bedroom (superking size bed or twin beds) and a bathroom with separate bath and shower. Outside there is a patio, laundry room with washing machine & dryer, private parking and use of an extensive Lakeland garden.

Wake up to spectacular views, explore quiet country lanes or leave the car behind and follow ancient tracks and footpaths, cycle along quiet country lanes, take a boat on one of the many lakes or trek over the mountains. You don’t even have to leave your home from home – there’s nearly an acre of Lakeland garden: tea in the summerhouse overlooking the pond?

Awaiting your arrival we provide a welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, biscuits or cake, a loaf of freshly baked bread from our local bakery and a pack of toiletries.
We provide free high speed WiFi via our full fibre network, together with all towels, bed linen, heating and lighting are provided (No hidden extras).

The Cottage is for up to two adults. We regret that it is not suitable for children or pets.

We are usually able to offer a discount for returning visitors - contact us directly to find what's on offer. It's always cheaper to book directly with us than through an online travel agent

Lovely spot, very comfortable accommodation

By Guest From Burton-on-Trent on 11-May-2021

Comments about this property
Lovely spot, very comfortable accommodation. Useful welcome pack. Slightly under-equipped owing to covid restrictions but a cafetière big enough for two would be appreciated. Thank you for the better corkscrew!
Tips for other travellers
Great walks from the cottage. The historic church well worth looking round with the guide supplied in the cottage (also online). See if you can find St Cuthbert’s Well! Local hostelries in Oxen Park, Bouth & Satterthwaite worth exploring although they were subject to covid restrictions and weren’t all open. Wild garlic growing by the lane an excellent addition to cuisine!

Excellent little Cottage

By Guest From Grays on 11-May-2021

Comments about this property
Excellent little cottage in a beautiful, scenic area. Well equipped, quality fixture and fittings with an obvious eye and attention to detail for the comfort of guests. Though small it is a perfect size for two people and a convenient base to explore the area from. We enjoyed our stay very much and Mary was the perfect hostess who ensured that we were able to enjoy a trouble free and much anticipated holiday.
Tips for other travellers
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and the weather we were restricted to eating in as most pubs/ restaurants were either closed or a booking system was in place which rather took away the spontaneity of our days out, however we enjoyed visiting Wray Castle, the grounds only as the castle was closed and we enjoyed a trip to Furness Abbey which though open required that you book in advance. On the day we arrived there were plenty of slots available but the signal around that area was so poor that we gave up trying to book and parked over the other side of the abbey grounds and took a short walk where we enjoyed lovely views of the abbey for free. We also visited Wast Water which though not as popular as the other lakes it is well worth a visit to sit and eat a picnic and breathe in the tranquility. Be warned though as there are no public toilets at this site.

Helpful Owners

By Guest From Ilkley on 11-May-2021

Comments about this property
Owners very helpful.
Free run of an amazing garden.
Well presented walk route options.
A negative would be the poor state of the first part of the road up to the church.
Tips for other travellers
Visit Ulverston Canal Foot.
Take the east side of Coniston Water Road from Spark Bridge past Ruskin's House and cafe.
Walk in the Copper Mines Valley from track just to right of the Ambleside side of the Bull hotel.
Go as far as the YHA and inspect the huge working water wheel.
Take Grassmere Elterwater road via Red Bank turn right at the top and stop near the great seat rhs of road just as Elterwater Common and the Langdales come into view.
Dine at the Three Shire in Little Langdale.
Also outside at the Swan, Newby Bridge - book first..

A good place to relax and unwind

By Guest From Nottingham on 24-Oct-2020

Forest Fields is a lovely, cosy cottage in a beautiful location. It’s a paradise for walkers with many varied walks straight from the door. Lots of maps in the cottage. The owners garden is a wonderful, tranquil place to sit and enjoy the lovely flowers and surroundings. All in all, a good place to relax and unwind.

Set on the side of a beautiful valley

By Guest From Kent on 21-Oct-2020

Our hosts were there when we needed them but not intrusive, enquiring about our settling in on day two and responding quickly to a minor emergency within the cottage. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped and set on the side of a beautiful valley. Access is via a narrow lane which is very quite. There are walks from the door and the cottage is well placed for visiting the southern Lake District."

"Within easy reach are Fell Foot Park at the southern tip of Lake Windermere and Gummers How (a steady climb from car park but well worth the 360 views from the top). There are plenty of other places to visit nearby.
We enjoyed a nice evening meal at The Manor House, Oxen Park (walkable during daylight but a short drive at night).

Friendly, helpful & accommodating

By Guest From Oxfordshire on 13-Sep-2020

Mike and Mary are very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. We will certainly be looking to visit again. The accommodation is all you would expect it to be and we find it perfect.

"The Greenwood Trails series of local walks are well worth trying. You have the option of several car free walks that are well marked and easy to follow, and cover some wonderful local scenery."

Wonderful holiday cottage

By Guest From Leeds on 05-Sep-2020

This was a wonderful holiday cottage. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay.The cottage is well equipped and even nicer than it looks in the pictures. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was a very generous size.
There were lovely little extras like bread and milk left for our arrival, toiletries and home grown tomatoes. The garden is a sheer delight and there are enough benches and a gorgeous summer house so that you can follow the sun around the garden."

"We ate at The Manor, Oxen Park and the White Hart in Bouth. Both restaurants had brilliant Covid measures in place and the food was delicious. The cottage is handy for boats on windermere from Lakeside and for the Motor Museum at Newby Bridge.There are lovely walks direct from the cottage but you would need a car to get to some of the bigger Fells.
If you want a lovely cottage away from the crows Forest Fields is perfect.

Delightful cottage

By Guest From King's Lynn on 04-Mar-2020

Delightful cottage with delightful owners. Lovely warm welcome to a spotlessly clean cottage that had everything we needed for a truly relaxing stay. It is situated in a beautiful and peaceful area but with all attractions and services close enough to not be a problem at all. Will definitely return if we visit the area again.

A Warm Welcome

By Guest From Lichfield on 29-Aug-2019

Mary and Mike are very warm welcoming couple. The cottage is small but perfect for two. Lovely thoughtful extras to make you relaxed. Tea coffee sugar lovely loaf from the local shop and a gorgeous bunch of sweet peas. Location is great if you are looking for peace and quiet. Away from busy life but close enough by car to many local interests. We have a mobility scooter with us so our own parking space was also convenient."

Very Peaceful

By Guest From Worcester on 25-Jun-2019

Excellent place to stay and very peaceful. Mary and Mike provided a lovely welcome and their garden,- able to be used by the cottage - is a delight. Forest Field is cosy and ideal for two. It was a pleasure to return there each evening. "

"The southern part of Cumbria is a lovely peaceful part of the Lake District. We found everywhere we visited rewarding and interesting. Sizergh castle, Kendal (though parking was a problem); Swarthmoor house where the quakers began;Brentwood and John Ruskin; Tarn Howes; Stott Park bobbin mill. Our Ruby wedding anniversary meal at L’enclume Cartmel, was memorable. Plus quiet picnics overlooking the Bay or the Lakes. A brilliant holiday that recharged the batteries

Delightful stay

By Guest From Cairns on 18-Nov-2018

We had a delightful stay at Forest Field and loved coming home to our cozy cottage after a day out walking the beautiful countryside surrounding us. Although not large, the cottage was well designed for comfortable holiday living. The kitchen is small yet we managed with relative ease to produce more than basic meals. Very importantly, it was spotless. The lounge was cosy and warm as well as bright and we enjoyed relaxing and reading on the comfortable sofa. Plenty of reading material was provided as well as information on the area.
The bedroom was spacious with plenty of storage and a huge, comfortable bed. The outlook over an adjoining field with sheep grazing was a delight for we non-rural dwellers.
The bathroom was large and offered a shower cubicle as well as a relaxing bath.

The owners take great pride in their cottage and the comfort and enjoyment of their guests. They are very personable and caring.

It was a pleasurable experience all round whilst we were at Forest Field and we do highly recommend it to others

Superb location

By Guest From Clackton On Sea on 20-Jul-2018

The location is superb - the cottage for two is on a quiet, gated lane with wonderful views within easy reach of Coniston and Windermere. Very comfortable, cosy and clean with a lovely big, bright bathroom. Mary and Mike (the owners) are very friendly and welcoming, they are lovely people. Great walks from the door, many circular routes provided or you can just stroll round their very large, beautiful garden and sit in the summerhouse overlooking the pond. This was our 3rd visit!
