Routen House – Luxury Self Catering
Routen House is a large holiday cottage which offers luxury self catering accomodation in the lake district for up to twelve people. Originally a Victorian Country Farmhouse, it stands proudly by Ennerdale Water, one of the most spectacular and secluded lakes in the Lake District, Cumbria.
The holiday cottage itself has four acres of it’s own land with pastures stretching down towards the lake. In the garden there is a feeling of peace with panoramic views of the high fells and the lake. The separate paddock has a bubbling stream that commences its journey in the mountains and finally into the lake.
The unspoiled, tranquil valley of Ennerdale is an ideal starting point for hundreds of walks – from gentle lakeside strolls to energetic mountain hikes (the views of Ennerdale and Buttermere lakes from the high fells are a stunning reward); rock climbing (a good base from which to approach Pillar); mountain biking in Ennerdale forest and fishing in the lake (permit required); pony trekking and quad-biking (available nearby). The valley has an abundance of wildlife including badgers, foxes, deer and a variety of birds of prey.
The nearest village, Ennerdale Bridge, has a Post Office and General Store, a church and two public houses (both serving good food and a variety of beers, including real ale). The market towns of Cockermouth & Whitehaven are only a short distance away and the popular town of Keswick is only 1/2 hour drive from Routen.
