Paradigm are two delightful luxury self-catering properties in the Lake District, comprising a renovated farmhouse and a hay barn.

We cater for Full Week bookings or Short Breaks all year round, each property – The House and The Barn – sleeps up to four. Originally built in the 1720’s, the two Paradigm properties are situated in the tranquil northern Lake District in six acres of idyllic private land. Set amongst lawns, orchards, woodland and a natural 60-foot waterfall, there is space to roam; yet you are only four miles from the market town of Cockermouth (birthplace of William Wordsworth) and 13 miles from Keswick. Both cottages showcase the unique Honister green slate, which can also be seen on Buckingham Palace.

  • Surrounded by lovely Lakeland fell walks
  • Set amongst lawns, orchards, woodland
  • Dog-friendly
  • All bookings include a Honister Mine Tour Voucher

TOG Says …

“We stayed at the Paradigm cottages which were a perfect retreat after a long day filming in the Lake District for Julia’s new ITV walking series. View the blog for behind the scenes footage of the Lake District shoot.”


“These cottages are sumptuous! They have everything you could want – including an outdoor Jacuzzi to star gaze in while sipping bubbly and eating Jan’s famous lemon cake. Heaven at the end of a day’s filming or walking on the fells”
