Property code: 74159

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.

This attractive Grade II-listed period property is located in the Eden District village of Shap, between the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. Retaining much of its original character, the property has been given an update sympathetic to the origins of the home while bringing it up to modern standards. Those with canine chums will be amazed at the wealth of walks found nearby, so keeping a water bottle and bowl handy when travelling is a must. This family home is ideal for up to four guests and one dog, having two bedrooms in its charming space.

Enter via a spacious hallway with plenty of room for boots, coats and dog leads before you’ll discover a grand and impressive space with a desk and soft seating to perch and ponder the day’s adventures. The lounge retains many original features including a ceiling rose, panelling and a large picture window where you can enjoy the views of the garden. A farmhouse kitchen has everything you should need to create a family meal for everyone, including your four-legged friend. The bedrooms can be found on the floor above, with a steep, narrow staircase leading to a further floor and the loft conversion. A second lounge and shower room can be found here, with plenty of colourful seating positioned to enjoy views of the countryside. The outside of the property has a private, split-level enclosed garden with patio furniture where you can lounge and enjoy a morning coffee.

If you fancy heading out for the day, plan a trip to explore the sights and walking routes of the Yorkshire Dales (20 miles). Adrenalin junkies will love the opportunity for water sports on Lake Windermere (24 miles). This is a place of adventure and fun should you wish to encounter it.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The location was very good with walks from the property and a good selection of shops and pubs within walking distance. The property itself was comfortable and reasonably well equipped although the TV was frustrating and relied on watching programmes through BBC iPlayer etc.

The house was just wonderful to stay, the staircase was always so lovely to look at each time we walked in. Front room with gas fire nice and cosy. If you have a bit of an anxious dog, then Shap isn't the best place to walk locally as there are a lot of dogs nearby. Plenty of walks from the door, though lots of fields with cattle.

I would absolutely recommend this home, but at the risk this cottage is booked out so often that Ill never be able to find an opening to stay again. It was absolutely a home away from home. Owner is very generous, cleaner does an amazing job, and everything is spacious and comfortable. Owner also kept in touch so we felt connected to them.

The cottage was a short walk to the local shop and the chippie. It was very homely and welcoming. It was within walking distance to both the pubs which were also very welcoming and friendly. We would be having breakfast and watch the birds in the garden which was really nice.
