Beautiful sandstone cottage in a peaceful location on the edge of the Lake District National Park. Perfect for a romantic getaway, with ample gorgeous walking routes from your door and within reach of Ullswater and Keswick.
The countryside retreat, in the picturesque village of Edenhall, is perfectly placed for exploring both the Lake District National Park and the North Pennines. You’ll also be within 27 miles of the Yorkshire Dales, making the cottage the ideal base for outdoor enthusiasts. From gentle ambles along the River Eden, to exhilarating fell climbs, you’ll find something nearby to suit all abilities. Take a day trip to the pretty market town of Keswick (21 miles) to discover a wonderful selection of independent shops and eateries, as well as the majestic Derwentwater. Alternatively, take a scenic drive to Ullswater (12 miles) to experience a ride on the iconic steamers or take a magical waterside walk to the impressive Aira Force Waterfall.
The sleek cottage has been impeccably decorated, with crisp, clean lines and accents of colour to create a memorable backdrop for your holiday. Steps lead down to the light and bright open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which is the ideal place to unwind after a day of sightseeing. Kick back and relax on the stylish sofa to watch the smart TV, warming your toes in front of the electric fire, which is housed in a gorgeous ornamental stone fireplace. Rustle up a tasty meal in the elegant kitchen, from produce collected on your travels. Here you’ll find an electric oven and hob, built-in microwave, fridge, and a handy dishwasher. Perch on the bar seats at the breakfast bar, with a glass of wine in hand, to chat about your day as the dinner cooks in the oven. Enjoy a little ‘me time’ in the cosy snug. This super stylish space, with feature wallpaper and a comfy sofa, is a lovely spot to curl up with a good book on a lazy afternoon. When it’s time for bed, retreat to the super-king-sized bedroom (can also be made up as a twin on request). Decorated in neutral tones, with little flashes of yellow, it’s a wonderfully calming space to enjoy a good night’s rest. You’ll also find another smart TV in here – perfect for lie-ins in bed, with a cuppa and your favourite programme in the background. Completing the property is the fabulous shower room, which has a light-up mirror, as well as a WC and heated towel rail.
Heading outside, dine alfresco on the garden furniture outside the property, before enjoying a sunset stroll around the beautiful, shared grounds. There is off-road parking available for one car, directly outside the property.
