Skelwith Bridge is a small cluster of traditional Lake District cottages and hotels, set around an attractive stone bridge spanning the River Brathay. Ambleside, Lake Windermere, Coniston, Coniston Water, Grasmere, Elterwater and the other main towns, villages and attractions of South Lakeland are all within a short drive. There are some excellent walks in the immediate area. The track along the river offers you an easy stroll where you will come to the dramatic Skelwith Force with its viewing platform set over the churning waters. Another big favourite is Louhrigg Fell, passing Loughrigg Tarn on route. The walk can be extended to taking in Grasmere and Rydal Water, offering some beautiful views.

On entering this charming cottage you will find yourself in the fresh and beautiful open-plan lounge/diner. A large room with tiled floors set under a host of beams, it is an ideal space to both relax and dine, and, with a traditional wood burner, deep bay windows set either side of the chimney breast, and tasteful furnishings, this is a perfect space for sitting back, enjoying a chat, reading a book or taking in a movie on the TV with Sky Q package.

Double doors lead you into a large conservatory with ovely views. Off the kitchen, in the hall, you will find a utility room with laundry equipment and an adjoining WC.

It also has an en-suite shower room with WC. The second double and the twin room are both very comfortable with views out to the gardens and grounds.

What a thoroughly enjoyable stay we all had at Carr Cragg cottage. The cottage is so warm and welcoming that I really did not want to leave! It is ideally situated just a few minutes drive from Ambleside and many other beautiful little villages. The walks on the doorstep are superb so you dont really have to drive if you dont want to. We had a bad Read morestorm one night which messed up the Sky TV. One call to the maintenance company the following morning and they had it fixed in no time! Hide

We've been coming to the lakes for a lot of years, and I can honestly say that this was the best cottage by far. Internally.. nothing was left to chance, beautifully & very comfortably furnished. Externally, the grounds were just beautiful.. and we spent hours watching the wildlife visit.. we even bought nuts for the bird feeder to encourage them.

The cottage was in a fabulous location, quiet, spacious and fantastic views. Walks from the cottage in every direction. Comfy beds and great pressure on the showers. Everything was provided. The only let down for me was the lack of cleanliness of the cottage and the awful smell of wet dogs. I have a dog (I didn't take her), and she smells (as most Read moredo) but this was awful. The cleaning co. Need to check and ensure that the cleaning is done properly. Hide

We had a lovely holiday in Carr Crag Cottage. The location is amazing and the cottage decor and furnishings lovely.

We really enjoyed our stay at Carr Crag Cottage, the location is phenomenal!! There are a few recommendations we have sent to the owners that would need to be fixed before we considered staying again but overall we enjoyed the house, its layout is family friendly and the kitchen is well kitted out. There are lots of walks from the house itself and Read morethe pub down the road is dog friendly with good food. Hide
