MANESTY HOLIDAY COTTAGES
Visitors who prefer to be at the heart of 'The Lakes' rather than on the fringe will particularly appreciate Manesty which is in the centre of Lakeland at its most picturesque. Only five scenic miles from Keswick and two thirds of a mile from Derwentwater, it is just what country lovers want.
Manesty, built in traditional Lakeland style on a site chosen centuries ago for its elevated position and its sweeping views across Borrowdale, is the ideal base for a Cumbrian Holiday whether walking, cycling or touring by car. From Manesty there are relaxing rambles along the river and around the lake and demanding day walks into the heart of the Cumbrian Mountains. Equipment for most water sports is available for hire on Derwentwater and instructors in canoeing and sailing operate conveniently from Lodore.
The beautifully situated old farmhouse now incorporates three cottages and is flanked by two converted barns. Each cottage is self contained with its own entrance, grounds and car parking space. The Leyland family care for the cottages personally from their nearby home at Youdale Knot and as Manesty has been the family home for six generations they have a fund of local knowledge.
