General Description

Sitting at the top of Glenridding, surrounded by magnificent views you'll find 6 High Rake - a charming cottage for 4.

At the back of the cottage is the country kitchen. Well equipped with everything you'll need for a self catering holiday there's an electric oven and hob, fridge and a very useful dishwasher. There's also a great selection of crockery and cookware including a slow cooker for warming winter stews. The breakfast bar with 2 stools is the perfect spot for a peaceful morning coffee.

The living-dining room is a real treat. At the front of the cottage, this lovely room has magnificent views towards Helvellyn. Enjoy a home cooked meal around the dining table before moving to relax on the sofas. Positioned around the wood burner, ideal for cosy evenings in in front of the fire. There's a TV with Sky Q bos for entertainment - if you can tear yourselves away from the views that is!

Upstairs on the first floor are the 2 bedrooms. The spacious master bedroom contains a double bed and has stunning views over the front of the cottage towards the Helvellyn range. Bring your morning cuppa back to bed and indulge in a lie in gazing out at the view - you are on holiday after all! The second bedroom is a lovely, cosy double room and has an equally wonderful outlook, this time up Glenridding Dodd at the back of the cottage. Also on the first floor is the family bathroom. As well as the WC and washbasin, there's a bath with shower over so all tastes are catered for. Enjoy a long soak in the tub or reinvigorate muscles tired from walking under the shower.

As well as parking for 1 car, at the front of the cottage is a lovely garden. With outdoor furniture and stunning views towards Helvellyn, it's a lovely spot for dining al fresco with a stunning backdrop. Please note that whilst the garden is enclosed, there is a change in levels due to the sloping nature of the ground. Children will therefore need to be supervised here as there are a few steps between the change in levels.
