You should know
  • There is no ground floor bedroom so the house is not handicap accessible.
  • As beautiful as the gardens are, they are not child proofed. Children need to be watched when not in the main part of the garden as there are slippery steps and ponds.

The detail

Derwent Garden Estate can sleep eighteen people, and has just been renovated to an exceptionally high standard. This dog-friendly luxury self catering accommodation is ideal for families, walkers or anyone wishing to visit this beautiful peaceful part of the National Park.

Situated at the end of a mile long private drive with its own six acre private landscaped gardens, Derwent Estate allows guests to truly relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the surroundings.

Derwent is a historic building, its gardens sit on the border of the Lake District National Park with a prime position on a south-facing hillside with a panoramic view of Skiddaw, Grassmoor and the Lorton and Buttermere Valleys.

While renting the Estate, guests have full reign of the staggering six acre gardens which were designed by international landscape and garden designer Thomas Mawson in 1910. They were featured in Cumbria Life magazine in 1998, and in Country Life in June 2000. The gardens are beutiful and very large with many vantage points that give guests different views of the Lake District and the River Derwent below.

There are two stone summerhouses where guests can enjoy an evening tipple overlooking the beautiful view. Right in the heart of the garden, there is a stone BBQ and outside dining area perfect for making the most of any good weather.

There are croquet and boules available and the large front lawn is perfect for outdoor games. The kitchen garden also has its own gas BBQ, dining area and gorgeous herb garden.

Derwent Garden Estate is situated in an amazing position overlooking the mountains of the Western Lake District just two miles from Cockermouth and 20 minutes from the beautiful town of Keswick.

Cockermouth is a pretty market town with a wide, tree-lined and flower-decked main street, boutique shops and a large supermarket. There is an interesting museum, two art galleries, and a sports centre with climbing wall and indoor swimming pool. Cockermouth has a wide range of excellent restaurants and a list of the owner's favourites is included in the welcome pack.

The traditional pastimes of the Lake District are easily accessible at this quieter end of the National Park. The estate is a great place for walkers to stay with so many of the Western Wainwright fells within 15 minutes drive.

There are three golf courses within ten miles, including Silloth, which is consistently voted as one of the top 10 links courses in the country. There is also some of the best fishing in England on the river Derwent.

Derwent Garden Estate is just a few miles from popular walking destinations like the Northern Wainwright Mountains, Crummock water, Buttemere and Loweswater Lakes and a five minute drive from the market town of Cockermouth.
