Riverside Cottage – Sleeping 5
Riverside Cottage in Seathwaite
Seathwaite, Cumbria, LA20 6ED
What can we say about Riverside Cottage?
Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, sleeping 5 guests, it ticks every box we can think of – a rolling river nearby, majestic fells to all sides……
A most traditional Cumbrian Cottage, with a fabulous log burner, many original features, and yet restored to a bespoke standard with all our modern day conveniences.
In other words, Riverside Cottage is the perfect location in which to relax and enjoy all it and the surrounding outstandingly beautiful area has to offer you.
A point of note, is that Riverside Cottage sits side by side next to Duddon View Cottage in the beautiful Duddon Valley, sleeping five guests in absolute comfort. Duddon View Cottage sleeps 4, so plenty of room between the two cottages to sleep nine guests, a fabulous option for two families to be in very close proximity, or for larger groups to share neighbouring properties.

The Perfect Location
Why not take a walk to the local pub, The Newfield Inn?
Steeped in history, with its original slate floor, it’s only about a miles walk away down the road which is flat and very suitable for push chairs and those who like a relaxed amble with stunning scenery to all sides.
Or you could go via Wallabarra, a little longer through woods and by the river, but equally as beautiful.
If you are strolling in the evening, remember a torch, it gets quite dark out in the countryside!
All about Riverside Cottage
The lounge at Riverside Cottage boasts a super size log burner to keep you very cosy and warm in the winter months.
The view from the lounge window seat looks towards Caw Fell and The Old Man of Coniston. You will notice the original slate floor is still there, looking every bit as good as it did originally, although we think it could tell a good few stories of life over the years.
You can spot the wooden door in the picture. Behind here lies a large storage room, suitable for bikes which may be stored in here. The landscape provides for many great mountain bike routes within the valley, and you will often see groups of bikers training within the terrain of the valley. There are also lots of gentler cycle routes too both around the valley and across the South Lakes for keen cyclists to enjoy.
Look out for the beam from Cartmel Priory in Riverside’s kitchen.
Thoughtfully refurbished, everything you need for a comfortable stay is provided here for you.
Riverside Cottage has its own water bore hole and its own water treatment plant, and is therefore very eco-aware.
All the eco-friendly products you may need in the kitchen – washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and laundry detergent are supplied for your stay.
Just out of view at the end of Riverside’s kitchen lie two easy chairs and two small tables, a perfect spot to sit and admire the view.
A great vantage point to settle down with a cup of tea, a good book, or simply to find that time to stop and stare and marvel at the amazing scenery before you.
The colours change with the seasons and we really recommend that you see the colours wakening up in the spring, and then the rich coppers and golds which sweep in with the autumn.
Whatever the season, it’s a truly sensational view, and we think you’ll be hooked.
Riverside Dining Room
There’s lots of light comes in to Riverside Cottage and we think the dining room is perfectly situated to catch this light!
A delightful room to eat in, notice the traditional wooden floor, in sharp contrast to the slate.
There’s a lovely view from the table and chairs at Riverside across traditional stone Cumbrian walls and fields.
Riverside Cottage is the best of all worlds!
Riverside Twin Bedroom
We absolutely love this shabby chic designed twin bedded bedroom at Riverside Cottage.
White furniture against Laura Ashley blues, the crisp white bed linen again on wide single beds, combined with duck egg valances, plush beige carpet, we could go on, but needless to say, this is a very well appointed bedroom.
Riverside Superking Bedroom
The two large single beds can be adapted to make one superking bed for this room at Riverside Cottage, which gives guests more flexibility as to the bed choices they have.
One of the singles is also a trundle bed, for the fifth guest, so suitable for a family of five with three children.
Riverside Porch View
Here is a lovely view looking across from the porch at Riverside Cottage.
Make the most of a lovely opportunity to sit and admire the panorama of fells and colours which surround Riverside Cottage, all whilst listening to the sound of the river running by.

Riverside In Autumn
Taken from Riverside’s back garden area, this photograph gives you an impression of the beautiful array of autumn colours which fill the valley as the green of summer turns to the coppers and reds of autumn and winter.
