Goosepen Cottage is a beautiful and spacious barn conversion situated in Santon Bridge, Wasdale, and has stunning views up the Wasdale valley.
The cottage sleeps 4 people in two bedrooms and has a kitchen, living/dining room with log burner, bathroom and separate toilet. The ‘upside down’ accommodation has the living area upstairs, to take full advantage of the fantastic scenery. Two outdoor seating areas, one south facing and one west facing, make the most of the sun and provide alfresco dining with a view.
Goosepen Cottage is one of a handful of properties at Hallflat Farm, and is named from the old goose pen that is now occupied by the cottage garden. Tucked away in a quiet spot away from the road and farm entrance, the cottage oozes character with many original features, including exposed stone walls and original oak beams. The cottage has full gas central heating in addition to the wood burner, to keep you warm and cosy on those colder days.
The cottage is surrounded by fields, woods and impressive hills and mountains and yet is only 200m from a pub serving good beer and quality food. Hallflat Farm and Wasdale is located amongst the stunning scenery of the remote and uncommercialised Western Lake District. Wasdale boasts England’s highest mountain (Scafell Pike), deepest lake (Wastwater), smallest church (St Olaf’s, Wasdale Head) and Biggest Liar. The World’s Biggest Liar is an annual competition held at our local pub, The Bridge Inn, and dates back to the 19th Century when a local landlord, Will Ritson, earned the title with his tall stories about the Wasdale area.
Goosepen Cottage welcomes up to 3 dogs. Please see our ‘dogs at Goosepen’ guidelines if you would like to bring your four legged friend with you.
