General Description

Kia ora is a two bedroom bungalow situated in a peaceful, residential area of Cockermouth, just a mile's walk or bus ride into the centre of this vibrant market town.

The living accommodation is situated at the rear of the cottage. The living area fills a spacious, light and airy extension, accommodating an oak dining table which seats up to six guests, a three seater sofa and a smart TV (don't forget to bring your Netflix login!), DVD player and Bose bluetooth speaker, which can be hooked up to a smartphone. The living area opens into the neat and spacious kitchen and includes an electric oven with six-ring gas hob, combi oven-microwave, freestanding fridge-freezer and dishwasher, as well as a handy washer-dryer for clothes.

Both the kitchen and living area have access to the garden, which has been landscaped on two levels. While the house could be considered wheelchair friendly (with assistance required for entrance via the back door), the lawned area is accessed by seven steps, although there is a pretty table and four chairs on the lovely flat slate slabs at ground-floor level. The upper lawned area features cushioned chairs situated in just the right position to enjoy the evening sunset. A locking gate to the quiet lonning beyond is located on this upper level. The garden contains beautiful bedding plants and guests are welcome to help themselves to raspberries, rhubarb, mint and cherries that grow in the garden. Bikes can be stored in the back garden, which is protected by a locking gate.

The sleeping accommodation comprises of two bedrooms: a double bedroom at the front of the house and a twin bedroom at the rear. The twin beds can be pushed together if a double is required, but these are not zip/link beds. Each room is filled with natural light, contains plenty of wardrobe storage and the double bedroom has a large TV with terrestrial channels.

The fabulous family bathroom features a wide, double-ended bath, a walk-in shower (not wheelchair accessible), hand basin, heated towel rail and WC.

An easily accessible driveway has room for two cars.
