Countryside self-catering cottage with optional Hot Tub, just for two with views of the river

About this Cottage

A perfect romantic retreat for 2 people plus 1 dog or a baby in this former Brew House which has been converted into a unique and very quirky self-catering cottage overlooking the village green and the lovely river Lyvennet.


The open-plan space has been creatively used to provide an open-plan layout which includes a hand-built kitchen made from local Green Oak. A dining area in the conservatory looking out over the village green and a cosy sofa by the woodburning stove. Heating is provided throughout the cottage.

Bedrooms / Bathrooms

Up the oak and steel staircase to the super comfy bedroom with lovely views over the green to the river.
A spacious wet room with power shower and underfloor heating is on the ground floor, off of the kitchen.


A sheltered courtyard with a wood-fired hot tub (booked separately), is just right for catching the morning and afternoon sunshine. Step out from the cottage onto the village green and collect conkers from the ancient Chestnut trees in Autumn or watch a Heron diving for fish in the lovely Lyvennet river which winds lazily right through the village or perhaps a horse and traps trundling past on a summer evening. Springtime is uniquely special, listen to the sheep and bounding lambs as they roam free range on the green.

The local community-owned pub, The Butchers Arms, is a peaceful 15-minute stroll along the river.

Things to note

WiFi is available throughout the property.
There is parking space for one vehicle to the front of the property.
The use of the wood-fired hot tub may be added as a supplement to your booking. Up to three nights = £60.00. This includes sufficient wood for your stay and freshwater.

Right at the centre of the village looking out onto the village green… (where sheep graze in summer), and the lovely river Lyvennet.

Maulds Meaburn is a very special village steeped in history with direct access to a network of footpaths and bridleways… yet only 10 mins from the M6 (Shap Junction 39) or A66 (Appleby).
There is a lovely new Walking leaflet, Fell & Riverside Walks around Crosby Ravensworth and Maulds Meaburn produced by local people in 2018, which provides 3 walks around this beautiful area – described by Hunter Davies as “… one of the most beautiful villages in the country“.

The Wood-Fired Hot Tub
This is an optional extra which can be added during the booking process. The price is £60 for three nights and includes wood. Should you wish to use the Hot Tub longer than three days, then guests are asked to let us know and we will need to add another charge, as the tub will need to be emptied, cleaned and refilled.
