A farmhouse kitchen with butler sink, range cooker, and original cobbles from the cottage's history as the Coach House, housing the horse bays. Review: "Everything you need in the kitchen to cook hearty meals whilst friends sit at the farmhouse table and have a few glasses of wine."The original Coach House (Volcano is the one with the external staircase)... Review: "I had been to the Lakes many times but never this far West and it is really very quiet and all the more beautiful for it."

Volcano is a 180 year old converted coach house: open plan, yet cozy; quirky & unique - a welcoming home from home where you can relax and unwind.

Ideally placed for Scafell ascent route at Wasdale Head, C2C and with Lewis Carroll having found inspiration for Alice's Wonderland here - it's a special corner of the world.

Literary & WWII history, world renowned walks, pubs, tea rooms, miniature steam railway, and kindness of strangers: visiting the Western Lakes is like stepping back in time...

This is a lovely house that is really exactly as it is described - and the hosts are very careful to ensure you know that. It is remote; quirky and stylish all at the same time. There were 9 of us and there was plenty of space - though a bit of a squashed at mealtimes! The kitc…
