Our Area & Hot Tub

The Ideal Base

Manesty stands at the foot of Cat Bells and Maiden Moor where the open fell meets the stone walls of the fields. It is built in the traditional Lakeland style, on a site chosen centuries ago for its sunny elevated position and its sweeping views across Borrowdale. Lying at the heart of the Lake District, it is the ideal base for a Cumbrian holiday whether walking or touring by car.

We, the Leyland family, operate the cottages personally from our nearby home at Youdale Knot and as Manesty has been the family home for six generations we have a fund of local knowledge. Even after 150 years, though, our family are relative newcomers. Manesty’s history reaches back to ancient times, when it was the northern outpost of Furness Abbey’s wool producing empire.
