Visit Britain 4 and 5 star; Gold award
Bendale Cottage, the one we stayed in, is attached to the farmhouse of West House Farm, a working dairy farm. The cottage is spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, and comfortable in all respects. Fresh flowers from the garden add to the home from home appeal.
There is a living/kitchen combo area with stools to eat at the kitchen counter, a separate bedroom and bath, and a patio complete with outdoor furniture. Views are over the garden, countryside, and farm buildings.
The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, stove, and small fridge (no freezer). Dishes and cutlery are more than adequate. Coffee, tea, sugar, and salt are provided for guests. A delicious plate of homemade scones and sweets baked by Susan’s daughter are a special treat when arriving.
In the living area is a relaxing sofa and easy chair and an electric fire. The bedroom is well equipped with a very comfortable king size bed, chest, side tables, and wardrobe. In the bedroom is a surprise box of chocolates. The good size bathroom has a power shower. Linens and towels are provided.
Perhaps the best part of your stay will be your hostess. Susan is accommodating in all respects, hospitable, helpful, and ready for conversation. This is a perfect place to relax—the quiet of the countryside, the comforts of your own cottage, and Susan’s friendliness make your stay a holiday to remember.
The west Cumbria coast (Maryport, Whitehaven, etc) and Solway coast are an easy drive. Cockermouth is just a few minutes away by car, and the western lakes and Lake District are close by.
There are two cottages that were new in 2010: Little Meadow and the Old Byre, in the farm courtyard.
They are equipped with many more amenities such as a private outdoor jacuzzi for The Old Byre, free wi-fi, washer/dryer combo, bathrobes, slippers, and fridge/freezer.
