Previously known as Fellside Cottage.

The extensive views down the Borrowdale valley from Over Brandelhow must be some of the best in the area. Set on the slopes of Catbells, the location is so peaceful and has great walks from the doorstep, whether you're looking for level lakeside walks around Derwentwater or more vigorous fell walking over Catbells, down the Borrowdale Valley or over the top into the Newlands Valley.

The cottage sits on the side of Catbells at the top of a long drive and up away from the road so there is no passing traffic. Over Brandelhow has private parking and direct access onto Catbells and the Allerdale Ramble. Of course we are dog friendly.

Over Brandelhow is semi-detached and very spacious sleeping 6 people in 3 bedrooms, 1 master double and 1 double downstairs, another twin with en suite upstairs. There's bags of room for 6 people. The sitting room has lots of windows so whatever the weather you can sit and admire the Borrowdale Valley from your armchair. The fully-fitted kitchen is open to the sitting room making a really sociable space with hardwood ash floor, electric log effect fire and a fully equipped kitchen. A large terrace opens off the sitting room with table, chairs and grand views towards the lake and valley.

There is an abundance of wildlife around, garden birds, red squirrels and pheasants. The lake is a gentle stroll downhill through Manesty Woods to Brandelhow, a lovely walk and from here you can take the ferry to Keswick or Lodore.
