The holiday cottage at Number Three Skelwith Fold Cottages was originally built to house staff for Skelwith Manor, the heart of the Skelwith Fold Estate until it was demolished in the 1950s to make way for what would become the premier holiday park it is today. The cottages have outlived their former overseer and are now ready to welcome you and your family for an unforgettable Lakeland escape.
The holiday home is very comfortable and spacious, with a large kitchen and dining space downstairs and wide open living room on the first floor. Up to six people can stay between the three generously sized double bedrooms – two of which enjoy full modern en-suite bathroom facilities while the third is located across from the main bathroom.
The cottage blends the very best of the old and the new to give you a memorable stay with us. The house is a traditional Cumbria build with slate stone walls and oak timber beams. This provides a beautiful and inimitable genuine English style. For your comfort, it is heated with a modern and energy efficient boiler to keep you warm and cosy throughout the year. We have also installed the latest mod cons to help you enjoy your stay. There is a Google Nest device in the kitchen to help around the house. Use in alongside our Skelwith Advantage app to help find out more about the many local attractions in the area.
Throughout Number Three we have little features added to help make your stay better. From the large TV in the living room for a relaxing evening after a day in the Lakes, to the heated mirrors in the bathrooms, to the dishwasher and combination microwave oven (plus a wine fridge!) in the kitchen – everything is geared to helping you having a wonderful time staying at Skelwith. When you’re ready to get outside, out of the back door is a fantastic garden with great views. And out of your front door are of the wild wonders of the Lake District – right on your doorstep!
For an added touch of refinement, there is even an optional hot tub at the back to truly let you unwind after a long day exploring the lakes.
Dog Friendly Lake District Holiday Cottage
We’ve not forgotten your four-legged friends either. Dogs are very welcome in Number Three, Skelwith Fold Cottages. We’ve even provided a large dog crate so that, if you use one, you don’t have to transport your own. There is also a 95cm plastic dog bed so you can just bring their favourite blanket. We challenge you to find a better dog friendly Lake District holiday cottage!
