Five shallow steps lead from the pavement to the shared front door. When you go through the front door, you enter a small shared porch area and the door to your apartment is on the left. You enter straight into the living room; a bright and welcoming space with high ceilings and beautiful furnishings means you'll feel instantly at home in Athena. The lovely living area has a two-seater sofa and a single armchair next to the large bay window with fantastic wooden shutters: the perfect place for a spot of people watching! For entertainment there's a basket of books, a large flatscreen TV and Wifi. There is also a space with a desk and chair, for those needing to keep in touch with work - or just write a postcard or two to tell everyone back home about your Lake District adventures!
The spacious living area leads through to an equally spacious kitchen area with a large dining table, so the non-cook can keep the chef company. The modern kitchen is fully equipped with electric hob, oven, micro/grill/combi microwave, large toaster, kettle, fridge, separate 3-drawer freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and large sink area. This sociable space is perfect for evenings in.
A corridor leads from living area through to the king size bedroom - be sure to check out the hidden artwork as you go. There is also a storage cupboard in the corridor containing an ironing board, iron, clothes airer and shoe rack. The bedroom is stylishly furnished with a feature wooden king size bed, large wardrobe, two bedside tables with lamps and a side table. A hair dryer is also provided in one of the bedside tables.
Patio doors open from the bedroom out onto a small shillied outdoor area. There is a bistro-style table with two chairs, where you can enjoy a relaxing morning coffee. There is also an outside light if you are wanting to sit out of an evening, as well as a handy outdoor tap for cleaning your boots after a day out in the mountains.
A door leads directly from the bedroom into a beautifully decorated bathroom. With Moroccan tiled floor, ample cupboard and sink space for toiletries, a toilet and a large shower with two shower heads (one waterfall effect shower head and one standard), this is a wonderfully relaxing space. There is also a useful heated towel rail.
