Bush Cottage is located in the charming peaceful village of Tallentire, on the North Western edge of the Lake District National Park, and just 3 miles from the bustling market town of Cockermouth.

It is conveniently placed to offer an ideal base for those wishing to explore the beautiful, spectacular lakes and mountains of the Western Lake District, and especially the breathtaking, dramatic scenery of Wastwater, recently voted \"Britain\'s Favourite View\". Within a fifteen minute drive you could be amongst the fells, enjoying the magnificent scenery of the Lorton Valley, which leads down to Loweswater, Crummock Water and Buttermere.

This area has the added advantage of being one of the quieter areas of The Lake District, so it is easy to escape the crowds. The pace of life in this corner of Cumbria is unchanged by the stresses of modern living- here you will find time to unwind and enjoy all it has to offer. There are many walks to enjoy in this area, both up high and on low level, but sometimes there is nothing nicer than a leisurely picnic by a peaceful lake shore.

A ten minute drive to the west will take you to the Solway Coast, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with its unspoilt Blue flag beaches, then on to the Roman Town of Maryport with fort, aquarium, and \"The Wave\" visitor attraction, and numerous shops and restaurants. Heading south takes you along the Solway Coast towards the historic quayside at Whitehaven.

Sorry, but we are non smoking, and don\'t accept pets. The friendly village pub with bistro-style restaurant is nearby, serving good food and prize winning real ales.

Payments are by cheque, direct bank transfer, or via Paypal (includes a credit/debit card charge of around 3%).

A non-refundable deposit of £100 per week is required to secure your booking. Once it has been received and cleared, along with your booking form, a confirmation invoice will be sent to you by post or email. The balance of the cost of your holiday as detailed by the invoice is due 8 weeks prior to the start of your holiday. Unless the balance is being paid through Paypal, no further reminders will be sent. If booking within 8 weeks of the start of your holiday, full payment is required.

I will send you a payment request, which will include an additional credit/debit card charge of around 3%.  All PayPal charges must be paid by you.)

Once we have received your deposit and booking form, having first checked availability for the dates you require, our agreement with you is a legal contract. If for any reason you can not go on holiday and you cancel at any time during the 8 week period before the date of your holiday, you will be liable for the booking in full, unless we are able to re-let the cottage. If we succeed in re-letting the cottage then we will refund to you any such rentals received, less your deposit, which is always non-refundable. If you have to cancel your holiday prior to 8 weeks before the date of your holiday you would simply lose your deposit. We strongly recommend you take out cancellation insurance for your holiday.
