Thoroughly bright and cheerful, this charming country cottage features contemporary decor and a true home-from-home feel. Step inside and find coat hooks and shoe racks for storing all of your walking gear before sinking into a cushy sofa in the lounge. The lounge, which doubles up as a dining room with a circular dining table, is the perfect spot for unwinding come the evening. Throw some logs onto the stylish open fire and make use of the TV/DVD for some well-deserved down time. A family kitchen has been equipped with an under-counter fridge with a freezer compartment, electric oven and hob, microwave and washing machine, along with a handy breakfast table for morning snacks. Completing the ground floor is a family bathroom with WC and shower. When it’s time for bed, three pretty bedrooms await you on the first floor. All three of these bedrooms benefit from far-reaching fell views from their windows, ensuring everyone wakes up rip-roaring and ready to explore come the morning. The master bedroom and twin bedroom both offer a place for two to sleep, whilst the cosy single bedroom completes the property.

Outside, a generous and mature, sloping lawn ensures you’ve more than enough space to soak up the fresh Cumbrian air when the weather is bright. Here you’ll find a patio space with garden furniture and a covered bike store for protecting your cycle from the elements. Although technically enclosed, small gaps in the fence and hedges mean that you’ll need to keep a close eye on your dog whilst unwinding outdoors.
