Property code: SZ431

The perfect base for outdoor enthusiasts who will find walking, hiking, mountain biking and water sports on the doorstep.

There are endless opportunities for walking for all abilities, from the mighty peak of Skiddaw to a gentle amble around Dodd Wood. Explore the grounds of nearby Mirehouse (6 miles), a beautiful historic house whose gardens stretch from Dodd Wood to Bassenthwaite lake. Bassenthwaite is right on your doorstep and a popular destination for keen sailors. For cyclists, the area is a paradise with quiet roads amongst lovely scenery and purpose-built mountain biking trails at Whinlatter Forest Park (8 miles). The bustling town of Keswick, 8 miles away has shops, cafés, restaurants, pubs and a thriving theatre, whilst Cockermouth, 6 miles away has a choice of places to eat, a selection of independent shops and a great art and folk music scene.

Enter this ground floor apartment and step in to the welcoming kitchen. It’s equipped with an electric oven and grill, four-ring hob, washing machine, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, kettle, under-counter fridge and under-counter freezer. There is a breakfast bar for two that’s ideal for grabbing a quick snack. The living room, with high ceilings and Georgian-style features, is the heart of the hose and perfect for unwinding after a busy day. Light and bright during the day with wonderful views of Sale Fell, the room takes on a cosy atmosphere as the sun goes down and the wood burner is lit. There is a dining table for four and a selection of books, games and TV with a DVD player for movie nights. The king-size bedroom has a wardrobe with drawers and the twin room has under-bed storage and a few hooks. The twin beds are standard size but space is quite tight in this room and therefore may be better suited to children.

Outside, leading from the kitchen, is an enclosed patio area with seating where you can enjoy a glass of wine on a balmy evening. The boiler room which houses the oil boiler can also be used as a drying room for wet weather gear if required. There is on-road parking.

A beautiful cottage which is really comfortable and cosy. Lovely furniture and equipment included, thoughtful too as there were DVDs and books for the children. The view over the mountains is incredible. It is ideally located and within reach of all of the places we travelled to. We will be coming to stay again.

Lovely location. Bed's are comfortable. Bathroom is brand new but shower is on the small side. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay. Thanks for the lovely bottle of wine, it was very much appreciated. Would come again for a short break.
