About Mistal Cottage

We have a selection of cottages accommodating 2-6 people. Both short breaks (3 days or more) and weekly stays are available throughout the year. Each cottage provides a luxury haven in which to relax, unwind and enjoy the Lakeland scenery, or you can visit the many attractions located a short drive away.
The Mistal dates back to the 17th Century and has been lovingly restored to offer 5 Star luxury Lakeland accommodation. The restoration has retained many of the original features of the building making this a really special place to stay for a relaxing break.
On the ground floor you will find 2 spacious bedrooms, 1 with King size bed and the other with twin beds. There is extensive use of oak flooring throughout the living area, but for your added warmth and comfort, bedrooms are sumptuously carpeted and natural stone flooring in the bathroom has under floor heating - to keep your toes warm on the way to the large walk-in shower.
Going up the oak staircase you arrive in the open plan living area, which has wonderful views across the Windermere valley towards the Coniston fells.
Exposed oak beams and tasteful lighting give a warm relaxing cottage atmosphere, complemented by the oak dining table and comfortable lounge area with leather sofas, TV/DVD, Ipod docking station and wifi. The Mistal is centrally heated for those cosy evenings when you just want to put your feet up, relax and enjoy the ambience of this unique Lakeland barn conversion. The oak kitchen is fitted to a high standard and fully equipped with microwave, electric hob & cooker, fridge freezer and dishwasher. There is also a utility/drying room available on the ground floor.
