TO COMPLY WITH GOV. LEGISLATION, I WILL NOW ONLY LET TO 1 HOUSEHOLD AT A TIME! - I offer simple accommodation (incl.breakfast) in my own house, which I share with my friendly border collie dog! A cheap base from which to explore Whitehaven, 1 & 3/4 miles away, the Cumbrian coast, 1.5 miles away, or the Lake District, 5 miles away.

The cottage is over 150 years old with walls 2 foot thick but has a very modern walk-in shower room and up to date kitchen. It is spacious, warm and homely - a veritable home away from home. All the basics that you may need are provided, including kitchen equipment, bedding, towels, soap, heating, lighting and power. There is a patio garden area to the rear of the cottage and off-street parking is available to the front.
Chapel House, Distington on the edge of the Lake District in Cumbria. Built in 1838, originally a Primitive Methodist Chapel which has now undergone a full renovation and conversion into a quirky 2 bedroom house which is filled with amazing features and full of character! A modern take on a historic listed building, keeping some of the original heritage but with a modern contemporary feel! The ideal getaway location for a relaxed break near the lakes, with local amenities. Come and enjoy!
