Enjoying the best of both worlds, peacefully tucked away in the Cumbrian countryside, this bolt hole is the prefect hideaway for couples whatever the time of year.
Spend glorious days out and about in picturesque Cumbria with two delighted dogs at your heel. Up to two of you can savour this exquisite stone retreat, giving you the chance to spend precious time with your perfect pets in comfort. Explore your rural surroundings or go walking along Hadrian’s Wall and see the famous Vindolanda Fort, 15 miles from your cottage. Head out into the Northumberland National Park or make forays into the Lake District from your holiday home.
Your inviting, single-storey cottage is entered via a handy ramp leading into a splendid, open-plan kitchen/diner/lounge. This character-filled, barn-style space, with its exposed stonework and beams, has a vaulted ceiling, enhancing the sense of space for you and your contented canines. Switch on the wood burner-effect electric fire and let the happy hounds flop after all the day’s exertions. Watch TV in here, cook tasty meals and dine at the table, with your pets close by. There’s a handy washing machine in the cottage and a freezer for those doggy delights out in a shared building. Stroll through to your sumptuous bedroom, with its en-suite wet room, when you are ready for bed. Enjoy warm days out in your shared courtyard and garden, just keep an eye on your furry friends when close to the unfenced stream.
Drive approximately 16 miles to the pretty village of Slaggyford in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Embark upon a circular walk, taking in part of the Pennine Way and some magnificent views. Head 30 miles from your cottage to reach the top edge of the Lake District. If you choose, go a little further – approximately 36 miles from your base – to reach Pooley Bridge and take the pups on a pleasant walk around Ullswater.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
