Scale Hill features 6 self catering cottages ranging from 1 to 3 bedrooms. Click on the cottage names above to find out more information about them.

There are some lovely pubs nearby serving good food and local ales and the market towns of Cockermouth and Keswick are just 8 miles away. We welcome dogs at Scale Hill and allow one dog to holiday in Lanthwaite, Howe House and Barty's.

We have a Hot Tub which is available for all guests from 9am to 9pm, great after a day on the fells. We provide towelling robes and spa towels so all you have to bring is your swimming costume!


With access from the cobbled courtyard and lying in the middle of the original Inn, Barty’s has an extensive lounge across the whole of the building making the room with its windows on either side very spacious and airy.
The kitchen, on the site of the old tap room where many a tall story will have been told, has its own window overlooking the garden and nestles in one corner beside the stairs.

Upstairs the four poster with ensuite bathroom has views across the valley to Low Fell and Carling Knott and on the other side to Lanthwaite woods.
The bathroom leads off from the bedroom.


Lying in the Coach House and entered from the courtyard which many years ago was the original main road through the valley before it was diverted behind the steading, Lanthwaite is a ground floor cottage without any internal steps.

The open plan living room with its oak kitchen and dining facilities leads beneath the old oak beams to the bedroom with 2 single beds and then past the dressing room to the bathroom.


Howe House at the southern end of the Coach House was originally used upstairs as a hayloft, entrance being gained from barn doors leading off what is now the road, whilst underneath the horses and larger equipment lived.

Now still on two levels it is a generous cottage. On the ground floor the roomy lounge with all its comfortable furnishing and its beams opens onto the courtyard whilst the well equipped ash kitchen and the bathroom are immediately adjacent.

Whilst upstairs there is a double bedded room and two single rooms


Up the main staircase of the Coach House, on the first floor, Brackenthwaite occupies the whole of the original "loft over" where the harness and equipment was stored.

All on one level it has a 4 poster bedroom with a magnificent view of Swinside Fell and Whiteside while the kitchen and dining area overlook the courtyard and the living room enjoys some beautiful views of Grasmoor and the neighbouring fells.


Sheila’s enjoys a capacious living room the full width of the house with windows on three sides and french windows onto a private garden. Entered from the courtyard through a small lobby, the living room with its rug covered wooden floor is full of light. In the far corner is the kitchen overlooking the valley and balancing the open plan oak stairs just inside the door, whilst between them there is a local stone fireplace.

Upstairs are a twin bedded room and a double bedded room, both with large windows on two sides giving extensive views of the valley and both with private bathrooms. The garden is secluded with a delightful little patio.


The large living room of Shell, on the ground floor of the colourful local stone built Coach House, once full of horse stalls, is entered directly from the cobbled yard.

A spacious room, with two walls of the attractive original stonework showing, it contains a comfortable living area furnished to a high standard with a modern kitchen/dining area in one corner.

The oak stairs lead to the first floor bedroom having a double aspect overlooking the cobbled yard to the front with an exclusive view to the rear of the towering slopes of Grasmoor. Off the bedroom lies the well appointed bathroom.
