About

Nestled in the peace and tranquillity of the Vale of Lorton lies idyllic Southwaite Green.This hidden gem of four eco cottages is set against a backdrop of spectacular Western Lakeland scenery.The picturesque setting appeals to everyone and to all interests.The quieter Western Lakes of Loweswater, Buttermere, Crummock, Ennerdale and the winner of Britain’s best view Wastwater with rugged mountains,fells and sandy coastline offer an abundance of outdoor pursuits on the doorstep.The bustling towns of Cockermouth (2 miles) home to Wordsworth House,(birthplace of Dorothy and William Wordsworth) Jennings Brewery and nearby The Lakes Distillery whilst Keswick (12 miles) has the famous Theatre by the Lake on the shores of Derwentwater. Both offer a wealth of shops ,inns, restaurants and art galleries.

For those who want to capture the peaceful ambience that is Southwaite Green, the four award winning cottages sit on the Paddle Beck boundary of the National Park (now an UNESCO World Heritage Site) which flows through the 10 acres of organically maintained native woodland, wildflower meadow, orchards, arboretum and pond. It is a haven for wildlife including foxes, badgers, roe deer, hares, red squirrels, hedgehogs, buzzards, barn owl, heron and kingfisher.

Southwaite Green cottages were constructed in 2007 to a very high standard by the owner who lives in the grounds.The development built on traditional Lake District lines combine spacious comfort and style with environmental technologies and give a unique experience demonstrating that sustainability and luxury can be combined.

Local craftsmen using local timber and stone from the site and recycling original beams from the barns have retained the traditional character. The cottages have used green design and technologies, ground and air source heat pumps power underfloor heating beneath the slate and oak floors.Solar panels generate both electricity and hot water whilst a reed bed to deal with waste water. Each cottage has been furnished with organic wool mattresses,organic bedding, towels, handmade furniture from sustainable sources and decorated using eco friendly paint.

The owner has paid great attention to detail which is a testament to the highly acclaimed Gold Award from the Green Tourism Scheme to ensure that the cottages have a low carbon footprint and that your stay is both enjoyable and memorably different.

The development briefly comprises of Skiddaw and Esther’s Barn, both have two ground floor bedrooms with ensuite shower rooms. The living, dining and kitchen areas are on the first floor. Skiddaw has an electric fire whilst Esther’s Barn has a log burning stove.

Buttermere is a ground floor two bedroom cottage  with one bathroom. The cottage has been specially adapted for disabled use and has a log burning stove.

Beckside is a three bedroom, three bathroom cottage with a log burning stove.

Children of all ages are welcome and we can provide cots, high chairs and stair gates.

Well behaved pets will love to explore the  enclosed grounds and we can supply water and food bowls as well as a dog walking service by arrangement.

Short breaks are available all the year round at Southwaite Green.
