This attractive Grade II listed period property has been given a stylish and contemporary update to create a relaxing retreat in the Eden District village of Shap.
Sitting pretty at the Gateway of the Fells and Lakes, this four-person, one-dog cottage invites you to relish dreamy getaways with family and friends. Located in the village of Shap, it is perfect for those looking to easily explore the many gems of the Lake District National Park, whilst also having access to local amenities too – including a great village pub less than 0.5 miles away. Adding extra appeal, you will also be within 20 miles of the Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – further expanding your opportunities for adventure.
Pull off coats and boots in the spacious hallway and make yourself at home. Mingling traditional vibes with lavish highlights and quality furnishings, you will immediately feel warmed by the attractive style and cosy atmosphere. The heart of the home, the farmhouse kitchen has everything you could need for rustling up hearty feasts for the family, enjoying luxurious additions in the form of a timeless Rayburn and a Dulce Gusto coffee machine. For gathering over meals and family games, a dining table sits in the middle of the room. Catering for all generations, you will find a ground-floor lounge with beautiful period features and up a set of cottage-style stairs a loft-conversion with a second lounge – great for relaxing and admiring the gorgeous views. Generously provisioned, this two-bedroom property also features two bathrooms.
Outside, you will find a split-level, enclosed garden with patio and garden furniture, perfect for warm sunny days. There are many attractions in the village for you to discover, like the 17th-century market hall and the 12th-century abbey just 1 mile away (the last abbey to be founded in England). Meanwhile, films buffs might be interested to know that the famous British film Withnail and I was filmed in and around Shap. Further afield, a trip to Haweswater Reservoir (6.5 miles) is a must.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
