Located in a quiet area of the Lake District, this most charming traditional double fronted cottage is full of character and original features, yet fully modernised to provide good accommodation which makes the most of this lovely setting.

The Garth dates back to 1728 and has undergone thoughtful and considerate refurbishment that has resulted in comfortable, inviting living space of considerable appeal, with original fireplaces, heavily beamed ceiling, latched doors and slate floors.
