Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Old Homestead, Lorton Vale, Cockermouth, Cumbria, sleeps 25 in 10 bedrooms.
The Old Homestead is a beautifully renovated, large, Cumbrian longhouse set in an enviable position at the head of the Vale of Lorton, a peaceful and idyllic spot within the northern Lake District. This is a wonderful place for getting together with friends and family, for activity weekends, reunions and celebrations, or just to relax and catch up.
The house has been sensitively renovated, retaining where possible original beams and features, and oozes traditional charm. Quality oak furnishings compliment the style of the house, and modern touches such as underfloor heating ensure the house is both luxurious and comfortable. The kitchen can cater easily for a group of 25, and the dining room has plenty of space to seat everyone together.
All 10 bedrooms have en suite facilities and are a good size, with solid oak or stone floors and lots of character. Most have fabulous views of the surrounding countryside.
Outside there are grounds extending to an acre and a half, with large lawns for games, areas for eating together and seating areas tucked away for escaping for a quiet moment or relaxing with a good book.
Keswick is 8 miles away, and has all the cafes, restaurants, shops and other attractions you would expect from probably the most popular town in the Lakes. Smaller and quieter, but with a wealth of history and places of interest, is Cockermouth, a market town just a couple of miles from The Old Homestead.
And then there is the great outdoors, with the Northern Fells offering walks in abundance, 5 of the lakes within a short distance with fishing, canoeing and sailing available, and many opportunities for road and mountain biking and adventures of all kinds close by. For golfers there are 3 courses within easy reach, and lots of family friendly places to visit too.
Minimum weekend stay 3 nights. 4 night midweek breaks available (except peak times) at 3 night weekend rates. Non-refundable deposit of 1/3 is required at time of booking and balance due 8 weeks prior to arrival. Breakage deposit of £250.
