Highbridge Cottages, Braithwaite, Keswick, Cumbria
Highbridge Cottages are situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park in the charming village of Braithwaite. Our holiday cottages are just a short drive from the popular Cumbrian market town of Keswick.
We have two holiday cottages to choose from: they are next door to each other in the same building and can be hired either separately or as one unit. Highbridge sleeps 6, Highbridge Cottage sleeps 4, or 5 with the collapsible bed. Both cottages offer self catering holiday accommodation equipped to the same high level (VB 4 stars) and are non smoking and dog friendly. Highbridge Cottage has an open fire, Highbridge has a large upstairs living room with great views.
At Highbridge Cottages we do try to work and live in an environmentally sustainable way and we positively encourage our guests to do the same. We invite you to support us in this aim during your stay, by using energy carefully, recycling your rubbish, shopping wisely and supporting Nurture Lakeland with a small donation. We also encourage you to avoid using your car if possible - there is plenty to do in this area without the need to travel far! As an added incentive, the weekly rates for the cottages are discounted by 10% if you travel to and from the cottage by public transport.
Braithwaite, the village where the two self catering holiday cottages are located, is a walker's paradise in the northern Lake District. Nestling at the foot of the Whinlatter pass, it acts as a gateway to the whole of the north western chain of hills, the favourite part of the Lakeland fells for Wainwright, the sage of all Lakeland walkers and he knew what he was talking about! The village is also only two miles from Keswick, the capital of the northern Lakes in Cumbria and ten miles from Cockermouth, the birthplace of William Wordsworth. The northern Lake District offers plenty of attractions for those who just wish to relax or enjoy themselves in stimulating surroundings. For something almost unique in England, a pair of wild ospreys have started nesting and rearing their chicks just round the corner from Braithwaite; you can during the summer watch them catch fish in Bassenthwaite Lake just a mile or so away. Braithwaite itself has two shops and three pubs, two of which accept dogs.
