About Fell Croft Cottage

Fellcroft Cottage, an 18th century terraced cottage has been operating as a self catering rental property since 2003 and has successfully achieved a 4 star rating from Cumbria Tourist Board year on year.

The cottage sleeps 6 people, in three bedrooms, two double and one twin, it has a large lounge/dining room, modern fitted kitchen, good size family bathroom, small sitting room and enclosed patio.

Situated in Backbarrow, a quiet South Lakeland Village, the cottage is ideally located between the mountain fells of the Lake District and the shores of Morecambe Bay and only 1.1/2 miles from the foot of Lake Windermere. It is the perfect base for a touring or walking holiday of the Lake District. Public footpaths, bridleways and quiet country roads allow visitors to walk or cycle the local area and fells relatively undisturbed.

This peaceful area of the South Lakes is rich in heritage and traditions, yet remains relatively unaffected by the influx of tourists that can crowd the more central parts of the Lake District. The whole area offers a wealth of tourist attractions.

Three of Cumbrias’ top visitor attractions are within a 5-minute drive, the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, Windermere Cruise Ships and Aquarium of the Lakes. Within 20 miles there are at least 32 places of interest listed by the English Tourist Board.

We hope we may have the pleasure of your company.
