The entrance doorway opens into the living room, which is comfortable and spacious, with a lovely view down to the lake from the window and seating for eight people. There is no TV as there's no reception because of the mountainous location but there is unlimited Wifi and plenty of books, playing cards and a whole cupboard of board games and jigsaw puzzels to keep you occupied!

The kitchen has modern units, electric oven & separate hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. The back door leads from the kitchen into a small porch then out to the garden.

Outside there is a walled and fenced garden which has a stream running through it. There are stunning views down to the lake and across the valley to the majestic Buttermere fells, you can go fell walking in every direction from the front door and keen walkers can easily manage a different walk every day without getting in the car all week. Walking books and OS maps of the area are provided in the cottage.
