Honister Cottage

Our 400-year-old cottage is well located at the foot of Honister Pass in the tiny hamlet of Seatoller surrounded by fells in the beautiful Borrowdale Valley.

Our beautiful cottage dates back to the 1600's and has been lovingly restored while retaining its original charm. Featuring a traditional cast iron fire range, the original stone staircase and floors and oak beams.


The space
Please note, adjoined to the right hand side of the cottage is The Yew Tree, a beautiful 17th century Inn. Refurbished and re-opening July 2023. 


The ground floor features a kitchen and traditional lounge with an old cast iron fire-range and an open plan seating and dining area. On the first floor you'll find 3 double bedrooms, including a master bedroom with a king size sleigh bed, t.v. and full en-suite facilities. The second and third bedrooms can be either a twin or super-king if preferred. There is also a second bathroom with a bath, shower, WC and basin, and a large second lounge area with sofas and a TV.

To the rear is a communal courtyard and garden, which can be accessed via the driveway and leads to the river where you’ll find a stone BBQ and seating area.

Local area

Right out of the door you'll find yourself in the beautiful Borrowdale Valley and at the start of famous walks and cycle routes, inc. iconic Strava segments and climbs. Honister Slate Mine and Via Ferrata are located nearby at the top of the Honister Pass, which are a must visit when in the area.
