Sleeping six plus two four-legged friends, this homely and welcoming period property is an ideal base for families of walkers looking to explore the northern reaches of the Lake District National Park.

Just 2 miles away, the popular stone-built village of Pooley Bridge sits at the head of beautiful Ullswater. Home to a good range of amenities from cafes to gift shops, craft galleries and a village stores, the village is also the starting point for gentle walks along the lakeshore and riverside. Or, for a more challenging jaunt, climb up Dunmallard Hill, the site of an iron age hill fort, to appreciate the wonderful elevated lake views from the top. To view the stunning scenery from the water, jump on board one of the stately Ullswater Steamers, which have been in operation for 160 years. With so much to see and do in the local area, visit Aira Force waterfall, 8.5 miles away, admire the wonderful autumn colours of Glenridding, 10 miles away, or browse the market town of Penrith, 5.5 miles away.

Inside, this period property has been given a modern makeover to offer spacious and inviting accommodation with neutral decor and timber finishings. A country-style fitted kitchen is well-equipped with a fan oven, gas hobs, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer and washing machine. Once prepared, enjoy meals at the table in the open-plan lounge/diner before settling down for a relaxing evening of TV, films or games while the gas fire creates a cosy atmosphere. Upstairs, each of the three tastefully finished bedrooms boasts its own en-suite, perfect for couples travelling together. The first king-size bedroom has a low window overlooking the courtyard and a modern en-suite shower room, while the second king-size room features a heavy carved wooden bed frame, a modern en-suite shower room and fell views, and the twin bedroom has a bathroom with shower over the bath.

Outside, a private area with table and chairs is perfect for al fresco dining in the sunshine. Beyond this, a shared enclosed paddock is ideal for dogs and the substantial shared grounds are often home to deer, badgers and red squirrels. There is designated parking for up to seven cars in a nearby communal car park.
