There is parking for two to three cars in front of the cottage. There are two electric vehicle charging points (EV) and secure bike storage. All electricity and wood for the stove is inclusive, as are linen and towels. There’s a boot room to take off muddy boots from a day on the fells, along with a hose outside to wash down mucky paws! Two cots and highchair are also available for our younger guests.
The cottage sleeps at least six people in comfort, with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. On the ground floor there is a super king bed which can be a twin with family bathroom next to it. Upstairs we have a double with en suite shower room and a twin with adjacent shower room. Both rooms upstairs have character beams.
The kitchen has a gorgeous range cooker with two electric ovens, electric grill and 5 gas hobs. There is also a microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and electric airer.



You’ll never be short of things to do whilst you’re staying with us. The cottage has complimentary Wireless internet access. There is also a state of the art low-energy LCD TV, with satellite TV and a DVD player. For the bookworm we have a bookcase full of books. There are plenty of board games and jigsaws for rainy days and the whole family. There’s also a CD Player/Radio/docking station. The cottage also has many leaflets and walking guides to help you get out and about. Nearby George and Dragon Inn, in Garrigill offers good food and a nice pint.
We have produced ‘Leave your wheels at home’ guides to highlight things to do.


We converted the cottage to be accessible. There are three shallow steps to the living room. If required we can provide a ramp to enable wheelchair access to the living room. The main bathroom is on the ground floor and there is also a ground floor bedroom too. These cater for the needs of a person with reduced mobility. The ground floor bathroom has grab rails beside loo and over bath/shower. We can provide a shower stool and bath boards if needed. Click on the link above for more information.


Up to two well behaved pets are welcome at the cottage. We have provided poop-bags for your stay. We include Isaac’s Byre pet-tags. These have the phone numbers of both the cottage and the owners, and the cottage address. This means that if your pet was to stray, people would know where to contact you to get them back to you.

We provide a boot/mud room which you can use to keep your pet contained at night time. As with most holiday lettings, we ask that pets are kept off the furniture and do not go into bedrooms. We provide dog towels, and mats to clean up muddy dogs too.
