About Caroline

I was looking for a pied a terre in my favourite location in the world but fell in love with this beautiful cottage which I couldn't afford. It belonged to a famous local climber Bill Birkett and was already a holiday let so I just took the plunge, thinking that then lots of people would be able to enjoy it and I would be better able to afford it. Win, win!!

Caroline purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Caroline chose Cumbria & Lake District National Park

I just love it - I've made it into a welcoming home from home. And it has a tranquil private enclosed garden from where you can watch the sun rise or fall over Wansfell while you listen to the birds and the waterfall [when in spate] as you sip your morning coffee or a glass or two. Cheers!

What makes this cottage unique

As I holiday here myself when I can the cottage has lots of extra equipment & personal touches which most commercial holiday homes don't have. It is meant to be a real escape from the world.

Just off the Kirkstone Road above Ambleside the tiny hamlet of Edinboro is perfectly located for a peaceful holiday relaxing in the garden or walking high mountains or tranquil valleys with glorious views all around. Relax by the fire or stroll into the small friendly market-town of Ambleside where there are many pubs, cafes, top class restaurants, late night food stores, bakers and local butchers. You can also walk to Lake Windermere to take a cruise or an open top [open in summer only!] bus to other lakes or hire a bike if you are feeling energetic. A different walk could be taken every day for over a week without even getting into the car.
