Manesty Band, sleeps 6/8

Manesty Band sits at the front of our rocky outcrop overlooking the fields, woods and fells of Borrowdale.  The cottage was converted from a barn in the 19th Century and the Victorians added a lovely wooden porch and huge bay window to make the most of the spectacular view across the valley.

The history of the building is reflected inside, with a roll-top bath, patchwork bedspreads and a mix of late 19th/early 20th Century antiques. Manesty Band’s big country kitchen has been furnished with beautiful solid oak and slate worktops, a range cooker and underfloor heating.  Together with the large sitting room, there is plenty of space to socialise with friends and family.  If you need more than four bedrooms, Manesty Band can be booked with either High Seat, or Manesty or Manesty Dairy, to sleep up to 14.
