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 countryside.

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 drive away.

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 sea birds.
