Ash Cottage is a cosy tranquil detached cottage. The cottage is set within our own 20 acres, located in the hamlet of Skelwith, with close proximity to the magnificent scenery of both the Great Langdale and Little Langdale Valley. The iconic LANGDALE PIKES are clearly visible from the cottage patio and garden, which also provides a stunning 360 degree view of all the surrounding fells. Due to it's peaceful, elevated setting in the heart of the Lake District National Park, there is an abundance of wildlife and birdlife in the vicinity and an unrivalled opportunity to view some wonderful sunsets over the Pikes and Crinkle Crags.
Some of the finest walking in the Lakes is to be had from the cottage, where a garden gate and path across an adjoining field enable guests to access Black Crag, Tarn Hows and the beginning of Little Langdale among many other great walks.

Wonderful nature therapy & a well being boost!

By Maggie Pierce on 19-Jun-2021

Arriving at Ash cottage was a joy - the attractive winding driveway, vibrant birdsong and well tended gardens had us feeling relaxed and anticipating a delightful week’s break. Judy welcomed us warmly and assured us of her desire to help in any way if needed, which was a lovely introduction, and we felt at ease parking up & familiarising ourselves at our own pace. The quiet elevated position, overlooking Lingmoor fell and the Langdale pikes beyond, was mesmerising and had us speechless at the beauty. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very comfortable with all that we needed. We very much appreciated the kind gift of delicious biscuits & coffee which we immediately took outside to sit and enjoy in the sunshine- a glorious start! Our week was a delight in every way and we look forward to returning to this little gem of a bolt hole again. Special moments for us were lots of varied birdwatching, seeing a Tawny owl up close, watching a red squirrel on the feeder & a stoat out of the kitchen window. It was also amazing to be able to do several walks out of the garden gate & then return several hours later! Thank you so much Andy & Judy - we had the best time and shall savour the memories.

Lovely stay, amazing views from Ash Cottage, Skelwith Bridge

By Anne & Ian on 17-Apr-2021

We had a really homely stay in Ash cottage the views are perfect especially as we had a week of good weather. The birds that come to the bird table and feeder keep you looking when ever you are around, the woodpecker even came on the tree, and the Stoat payed us a visit as well. Judy and Andy are a very friendly couple and their cottage is central for most of the places of interest in the Lake District. We would definitley come again. .

Ash Cottage is a little gem

By Tudor & Debs Hill on 16-Jun-2019

The cottage itself was immaculate and beautifully decorated - a real home from home - and the owners, Andy and Judy, were so friendly and keen to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible, while leaving us to get on with our holiday in peace. This year was our second visit and we wouldn’t consider anywhere else to stay. We can’t wait for visit number three.
