Set in an elevated position, this ground-floor terraced cottage lies in a small country estate between Pooley Bridge village and the spectacular natural landscapes of the Eden and Lowther valleys.
This is the ideal hideaway for couples who want to swap hectic lifestyles for the beauty of nature and the sporty natural playground of Cumbria, with its fantastic lakes, tarns, and fells. Discover the pretty villages of Askham (1.5 miles), Tirril (3 miles), and Pooley Bridge (3 miles) near Ullswater (6.5 miles). Shop in the market town of Penrith (6.5 miles), or enjoy the Theatre by the Lake in Keswick (18 miles). Visit Lowther Castle and Gardens (3.5 miles) and Dalemain House and Gardens (5 miles). Take on the peak of Skiddaw (22 miles) or stay low and improve your golf game at Penrith Golf Hub with its 9-hole course, driving range, and fun foot golf (7.5 miles).
Step inside the hall of this cosy cottage with ample space for coats and boots, and a local map to inspire your adventures. Wander through to the open-plan kitchen, dining, and living area where you’ll find a welcome pack. Sleeping two guests, you’ll find everything conveniently on one level here, while the thoughtful owners have furnished the property with your comfort in mind. Shop in local markets and make a memorable feast for your loved one in the small though well-equipped kitchen area, which features an electric oven with a gas hob, fridge, and microwave; an iron and ironing board are also available. Dine in the living room and sink into leather sofas by the wood burner-effect gas fire, and catch up on the day with film nights on the TV and DVD player. When night falls, enjoy the sweetest of slumbers in the king-size bedroom which has ample storage space, an en-suite shower room, and garden views. Enjoy delicious breakfasts in the sunny living space where you can look out for wildlife through the large picture window – curious red squirrels, deer, and birdlife frequent the terrace.
Outside, there’s a private seated area with bistro furniture – perfect for morning coffees. You’ll find three neighbouring cottages on-site and if you have a larger party, there’s the option to book all four properties together. Shared facilities in the spacious grounds include a utility room with a washing machine, tumble dryer and guest information area; a drying room with a heated boot rack, a large lawned garden; BBQ facilities; and an enclosed paddock where dogs can exercise.
