Set in a spectacular location, Over Brandelhow is a semi detached cottage and sits on the slopes of Catbells facing South, with wonderful views over Derwentwater and down the beautiful Borrowdale Valley.
It's so so peaceful! There is an abundance of birds and wildlife to watch, red squirrels and woodpeckers are regular visitors to the garden, along with the pheasants and numerous woodland birds.
From the cottage there is direct access onto Catbells. A beautiful stroll down through Manesty Woods to Brandelhow, brings you down to the lake; from here you can take the ferry around the lake to Lodore or Keswick.
The Allerdale Ramble runs across the fell behind the cottage and takes you either to Grange or Portinscale; the situation is perfect for magnificent walks either around the lake, over Catbells to Newlands, or down the Borrowdale Valley towards Honister Pass.

There is a large terrace with table and chairs, which in turn leads down onto the lawn; the view from here is absolutely fantastic!
The picturesque village of Grange is about 1 mile away and Keswick approximately 5 miles, that's about a 15 minute drive around the lake. Boats can be launched onto the lake at Kettlewell, or at the Marina in Portinscale.
