Rivendell offers a beautiful pet friendly home from home, complete with a private garden and a garden room packed full of games and activities for kids. Our holiday home is full of everything you need for a cosy Cumbrian escape. The kitchen is well equipped for six guests, and there is complementary Wi-Fi throughout. Spend your evenings together warm and cosy by the log burner, playing games and chatting about your days spent exploring the local area.
Rivendell has three good sized bedrooms, two bathrooms and is pet friendly. When you arrive, all your beds will be made, and fresh towels will be waiting for you. There’s also a utility and drying room that comes in handy if the weather hasn’t been kind!
There is roadside parking for up to six cars at the side of our holiday cottage. Or, if you want to leave the cars at the house, you can use the bus stop with regular collections for Cockermouth and Keswick. We also have plenty of space for secure bicycle storage if you’re visiting our lovely part of the world on a cycling holiday.
From the house you can walk up onto the fells and be high above the village within 15 minutes.
The local area offers so much to do on its doorstep, including the Lakes Wildlife Park, the lakes, a tasting session at the The Lakes Distillery, a gentle stroll along the newly rebuilt Keswick railway path, one of the miles without stiles routes across the county. You can go osprey or red squirrel spotting at Dodds wood, or play with the family at Mirehouse. You’ll always find something amazing to do here, before you even think of venturing further afield to explore more of the northern lakes.
