Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Duddon Valley, Riverside Cottage ticks every box - a rolling river nearby, majestic fells/mountains to all sides, a most traditional Cumbrian Cottage, with a fabulous log burner, many original features, and yet lovingly restored to a bespoke standard.
There's a local pub in walking distance. There's plenty of walks nearby, from gentle strolls to quite high intensity fell climbing. There are also many cycle routes and the area is a favourite with both cyclists and mountain bikers. There is a store room at the cottage for outdoors wear, boots and bikes. You’ll love Riverside for the ambiance, the outdoors space, the peace and tranquility of being close to nature, the space and time to relax. It's good for couples, singles, families, and also furry friends (pets).
The ground floor consists of a cosy lounge with a large ornate woodburner and original slate floor. The dining area has a contrasting wooden floor and leads through to the modern kitchen with stylish and understated decor. Every convenience for your comfort is provided here. The cottage has its own water bore hole and its own water treatment plant and is therefore very eco-friendly. All the appropriate eco friendly products which you will need in the kitchen are provided for you.
The stairs and upper floor has plush thick carpeting. Half way up the stairs you will find a small landing, and a window with a great view leading to the family size bathroom - a beautiful white bathroom suite with free standing pedestal bath. Further up the stairs leads you to the shower room and the two bedromms. Choose for a luxurious king size bed or alternatively there is a twin bedded room with large single beds. These beds can also be fitted together if you would prefer a superking size bedroom.
The river rolling by can be heard from the kitchen and the bathroom, and of course the garden. Take a seat on the garden bench with a good book or a cup of tea and take time to sit and stare - there really is a fabulous panorama of natural beauty all around you. We think one visit won't be enough!

A very cosy well presented cottage in a superb location
Thank You Jo, I would be most delighted to welcome you back for a return visit.
We had such a lovely time in this beautiful little cottage. Everything you could possibly need was available for use there and it was in a wonderful location.
Be aware that there are no shops in close walking distance, and the nearest one (post office) was closed every time we went (possibly owners on holiday. If you go prepared for this, it's no problem though.
We were so pleased with this little find. Great pubs - only one walking distance, but great for food. Other pubs a short drive away are also fantastic.
Thanks Amanda for a lovely stay :)
Perfect. Don't hesitate. Book if you can
If you want a quieter part of The Lakes this is the place for you.
The house has fab views. Is warm and cosy and beautifully furnished.
We chose it because it has 2 beds, 2 bathrooms and would accept 2 dogs.
We drove to the big beach at Silecroft with cafe. Then walked from the door.
A relaxing holiday for all.
If you're looking for a taste of the rural appeal of the Lake District, look no further. This lovely cottage is perfectly situated to explore the natural beauty of the area with outstanding views and walks on your doorstep. The cottage itself is a blend of rustic charm with modern convenience, very well equipped and tastefully decorated. A tip for travellers in the depths of winter: the central heating is fine but you do need the log burner as a back up in the lounge area and it really helps if you can source dry, seasoned logs! Amanda is extremely helpful and the local hostelries offer a very friendly welcome. Delightful!
We stayed in Riverside and had a lovely time. Beautiful cottage, fabulous location, everything we needed for a relaxing break, Absolutely recommend this as a place to stay, will definitely be returning. Thanks again.
Very comfortable cottage in a beautiful rural setting
We loved our weekend in Amanda's cottage in the Duddon Valley. The cottage is very well set up and has everything needed for a comfortable, cosy stay. Outside the scenery is stunning and we soon adjusted to driving on the tiny Cumbrian lanes. The cottage is a perfect choice for a country weekend.
