General Description

Ashley House is a spacious and comfortable end terrace house which has been refurbished to a high standard. Set in the peaceful village of Ireby on the northern fringe of the Lake District National Park it sleeps six people in three beautifully decorated bedrooms and has an enclosed garden with far reaching views over Caldbeck Common and fells beyond.

On arrival at the property via the back door you first enter the utility area, where you'll find the washing machine and dryer, and the door to the beautiful downstairs shower room. This has been fitted with a modern suite with a curved shower enclosure and an electric shower.

Through from here you access the stunning modern kitchen with its thoughtfully built-in appliances and soft close doors and drawers. It's extremely well equipped with all of the crockery and utensils you are likely to need for your stay. It has a large built-in fridge freezer, two fan ovens, halogen hobs, microwave and dishwasher. It's a lovely light space with a small breakfast table for a quiet morning cuppa.

Moving through to the stylish open plan living and dining room you'll find a light and welcoming space with wooden floors and charming decorative features. The dining area looks out to the front of the house and has a large dining table with six chairs, while the living room has a cosy wood burner topped by a wooden mantle and a deep soft brown leather sofa with matching comfy armchairs. Why not curl up here and read or watch a film on the flat screen TV with Freeview? With its glass double doors looking out onto the garden and the stunning view it makes a gorgeous space to relax.

Heading up the curved staircase to the thoughtfully coordinated bedrooms. First is the king-size room with its large wardrobe and window out onto the comings and goings of village life. Secondly the lovely double room which has a wardrobe and a gorgeous view out to the back of the house over the rolling moorland to the high fells beyond. Lastly is the light fresh twin room with its metal bedsteads and two windows drenching the room in light. Also upstairs is the spacious modern bathroom. With its high backed claw foot bath and large separate shower enclosure with electric shower its a wonderful space to soak away aching muscles.

To the back of the house is a lovely garden with mature trees and shrubs. Immediately outside is a large gravelled area then beyond a substantial lawn for children to potter about on. Please note, there is a right of access across the garden for neighbours to bring their dustbins in and out, so please ensure that dogs are supervised at all times. The views over Caldbeck Common and the lakeland fells from here are absolutely magnificent making it an ideal spot to enjoy al fresco meals or just to soak up the peace and tranquility.
