"I have visited many parts of the World and have revelled in the marvellous beauties to be found in them, but for concentrated loveliness I know nothing that can quite compare with the lakes and mountains of Westmorland, Cumberland and Lancashire"
So wrote Henry Holiday who built Betty Fold as a holiday home.
Betty Fold is a historic country house set in spacious grounds in the heart of the English Lake District, offering self catering holidays.
Its elevated position affords magnificent panoramic views across the Esthwaite Valley to the south eastern fells.
The garden, in which guests are welcome to wander, contains some interesting trees and a wide variety of wildlife.
The famous beauty spots of Tarn Hows and the Langdales and the quaint village of Hawkshead are nearby. Ambleside and Coniston are each four miles away.
