    This 17th century lodge is just across the Borrowdale road from the shore of Derwentwater. From the lounge there are lake views of Derwentwater and beyond to Catbells and the neighbouring fells.

    Barrowgate is a popular choice with hill walkers and climbers, and those wanting direct access to the lake. The views through the arched windows, complete with original shutters, are stunning, especially when the sun dips over the Western fells. A verandah provides an ideal spot for those warm evenings, whilst a grassy garden to the rear of the property provides an open space for games.

    Being a lodge, accommodation is on one level. Entrance is directly into the light and airy sitting room, with its open fire and large windows; a double bedded room leads off. A cosy inner dining room leads to th...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed 22 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The location of the property right on the edge of Derwent Water is fantastic. Extras like the open fire and piano were a real delight. The beds were really comfortable and the picnic table outside was a lovely touch.

We stayed in this cottage in July it was a fantastic location. The house would be better with new sofa's , but otherwise was lovely and comforting. The dog poo on the lawn mentioned in a previous comment wasn't dog poo, it was the sheep who were in the garden every day have photo's of them, they were very happy...

A very comfy and charming period property in a great location. The property was bigger than we expected. It was a real pleasure to start and end each day by stepping out of the gate, across the road and onto the lake shore. Only one small moan - the previous guests had left dog mess all over the front lawn. more
