Nestling quietly at the end of a short woodland drive, Keepers Cottage is set in the peaceful Cumbrian countryside where part of the ancient Solway Moss has escaped the changes of modern agriculture and the area remains a haven for ground nesting birds and wildlife, mosses, birch and downy cotton grass.
Keepers has easy level access and all facilities are available on the ground floor. The cottage has been carefully renovated to a high standard, but still maintains its character, charm and many of its original features.
The cottage sleeps up to 6 people. There are three bedrooms, two large doubles on the ground floor and a third bedroom upstairs with two single beds.
The well kept garden surrounding the rear of the cottage, overlooking the woods and the moss, has patio furniture a swing and a playhouse. Sheep and Cattle graze quietly in the surrounding fields, owls nest in the barn, woodpeckers can be spotted on the bird feeders in the wood.
Children love Keepers Cottage. There’s a whole wood to explore, a big garden to play in (you’ll find all sorts of toys in the stable and the playhouse.
Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter. The floor of the woods between the trees is always a blaze of colour, birds come and go from season to season and the trees themselves are beautiful in their variety and character.
Unspoilt for centuries the Moss is teeming with wildlife and it’s right outside Keepers’ back door. All guests overlook the Moss from their bedrooms. Buzzards and Kestrels hunt the far reaches of the Moss, Deer visit early in the morning.
There is a wide variety of attractions near the cottage.
