This charming cottage has been thoughtfully refurbished to offer guests a comfortable retreat in a peaceful setting.
Lying on the eastern flank of Cartmel Fell, this delightful wing of a former 16th-century grand country house is a rural treat. Sleeping six people and their holidaying hound, it’s ideally located for exploring the many scenic hiking trails which pass its front door. With a popular village pub within walking distance and the lakes a short drive away, this is a super choice for groups who love the great outdoors.
This three-bedroom home has been beautifully refurbished to create a stylish blend of old and new. Step into the welcoming sitting room, with exposed beams and roaring wood burner, and take the weight off your feet. In the kitchen/diner, budding cooks will be eager to cook up a storm using the traditional AGA, which sits in a large inglenook fireplace. The oak table is perfect for long family meals, before those in a competitive mood head for the cellar beyond, for a game of pool. Oak stairs lead up to a romantic king-size bedroom with four-poster bed, along with a second king-size room. A further flight of stairs takes you up to the cosy double attic bedroom, with pitched ceiling and an en-suite. A spacious den is also to be found up here, which has sloping ceilings and is perfect for younger guests. Step outside and enjoy a little al fresco dining on the patio, in the delightful garden.
Pack a picnic and stroll around the Simpson Ground Tarn (1.5 miles), a reservoir set amongst woodland. Take a cruise across Lake Windermere (6.5 miles) or get in the water to try out canoeing or paddleboarding. Foodies should head to Cartmel (8 miles) which is packed with great eateries, along with the chance to sample its famous sticky toffee pudding.
