Dating back to the 1700s, this comfortable well equipped detached stone built cottage has been completely renovated & refurbished to a high standard by The National Trust and its managers, who live nearby.
It is set in the heart of a beautiful mountain valley at Tongue House Farm amongst crags & streams, very quiet & unspoilt with fascinating walks both high & low in all directions.
At the foot of the beck from nearby Seathwaite Tarn, 'Tarn Foot' is also the breed name of the famous family of award winning Lakeland Fell Ponies bred by the previous tenants, which are still winning prizes at local shows.
Across the part cobbled farmyard, there are views of the valley & the Coniston Fells.

|The cottage was comfortable and had everything we could possible need. The enclosed area round the cottage was ideal as we have two dogs and could happily let them wander in and out without worrying that they would escape. The views of the surrounding area are stunning and there are some excellent walks although some rather boggy underfoot as the weather was quite wet when we were there. I would certainly recommend this cottage as long as the noises of a working farm are not a problem.|

|We stayed at Tarn Foot Cottage on a working farm at the head of the Duddon Valley. The cottage was comfortable and had everything we could possible need. The enclosed area round the cottage was ideal as we have two dogs and could happily let them wander in and out without worrying that they would escape. The views of the surrounding area are stunning and there are some excellent walks from the front door. I would certainly recommend this cottage.|

|This place is fantastic. If you want to escape the whole world then come here. Will we be back? Yep. We are actually still here as I type this review, so you know the wifi works. Two regrets, first we have to leave a day early due to some family news, second central heating works so good we didn't get to fire up the log burner. Everything works well. It is out of the way so it means country roads for at least 6 miles to get to it. Punch in postcode on sat Nav and it will take you straight to the farm. It is a working farm so if you don't like the sound of cows or bleating lambs (who wouldn't my wife had to pick one up to move it off the lane, bless) then this is maybe not for you. We have two dogs and you will have a secure yard both front and back of the cottage. Room to easily park two estate cars. 10 out of 10.|

|Just to say, we have had another great time at Tarn Foot. We were well looked after by the owners and thank you to all at Coppermines Office for your help.|
