FAR MOOR END
Far Moor End is a traditional Lakeland house and barn occupying
a secluded position within the Lake District National Park, but
just a mile from both Ennerdale Bridge village and Ennerdale Water.
Situated in 22 acres of private grounds, Far Moor End can accommodate
up to 16 people in comfort surrounded by dramatic scenery, deep
within the Lake District.
The barn sleeps 6, the house sleeps 10 and they can be hired separately
or together - if it is hired separately then we will not rent out
the second property so your party will not be sharing the grounds
or buildings with any other visitors during your stay. The dining
room in the barn is large enough to seat 16.
If peace, tranquility and comfort are high on your list of holiday
priorities, then Far Moor End will suit your needs perfectly. Alternatively,
if you want to enjoy classic mountain walks with gorgeous scenery
and breath-taking views, then you can do so right from the doorstep.
You do not even need your car to enjoy miles & miles of unspoilt
The House is on the left with the Barn just in shot on the right
FME is suitable for parties of up to 16 people and, by arrangement,
one dog per party of 10 or two for parties of 16. All the beautiful
scenery above is within 1 mile of FME's doorstep and is situated
within the National Park making it totally accessible.
The grounds of Far Moor End include 15 acres of woodlands
with paths (please note that the woods are sometimes off limits
when there is tree felling or bridge reconstruction), two paddocks
of approximately two acres each, a wildflower meadow of approximately
three acres. There are three wildlife ponds within the grounds.
Far Moor End has a long frontage on the River Ehen which is a site
of Special Scientific Interest (S.S.S.I.). The grounds surrounding
Far Moor End attract an abundance of wildlife, including red squirrels.
The unspoiled, tranquil valley of Ennderdale is an
ideal starting point for hundreds of walks - from gentle lakeside
strolls to energetic mountain hikes (the views of Ennerdale and
Buttermere lakes from the high fells are a stunning reward); rock
climbing (a good base from which to approach Pillar); mountain biking
in Ennerdale forest and fishing in the lake (permit required); pony
trekking and quad-biking (available nearby).
The valley has an abundance of wildlife including badgers, foxes,
deer and a variety of birds of prey.
The nearest village, Ennerdale Bridge (one mile away), has a church
and two public houses (both serving good food and a variety of beers,
including real ale).
The market towns of Cockermouth and Whitehaven are only a short
distance away and the popular town of Keswick is only half an hour's
The historic village of St Bees is also close at hand with a long
pebble and sand beach and its famous cliffs with thousands of nesting
