General Description

The side door to Banklands Cottage is under a sheltered porch. This opens into the boot room and the adjacent utility room that has a washer, a dryer, sink and space for hanging wet weather gear to dry.

Off the boot room is the spacious and well-proportioned kitchen with designer units, larder store cupboard, integral fridge and freezer, dishwasher and a Range cooker with gas hob, electric oven and built in microwave. There is a handy island unit to provide an extra work surface and more storage. There is also a table with bench and chair seating, positioned next to the cosy woodburner.

The sitting room has a wood burner (initial supply of logs and further supplies can be purchased) and comfortable seating is arranged around the woodburner, TV, DVD player and playstation. This room benefits from three windows all offering fabulous views to the fells and surrounding countryside. The original stained glass in the windows is a lovely period feature in this room.

There is an additional shower room downstairs with walk in shower, WC and wash basin.

An inner hallway has a superb decorative staircase leading to the first floor bedrooms and bathroom. The main bedroom has been tastefully and comfortably furnished, featuring beautiful fell views from the three windows. There is a king sized bed and a tiled feature fireplace.

The second bedroom has a zip and link bed which can be made up as superking or twin (it will be made up as a superking unless otherwise requested). This room also has a feature fireplace and is furnished with a chest of drawers and a wardrobe. The third bedroom has a double bed and fitted wardrobe.

Also on the first floor is the bathroom that has been finished to a high standard with a freestanding bath, separate shower cubicle, W.C. washbasin and large heated towel rail. There is a lovely wooden floor with luxurious under floor heating.

Outside, the garden extends all the way around the property. Banklands is in an elevated position and benefits from superb views of the Eskdale valley. There are several lawned areas, shrubs and a sheltered area for sitting out. Also outside is a dog wash area with a heated hosepipe for giving your dog a luxury hose down after a muddy walk. Parking is approximately 250 yards from the house to preserve the pretty grass path up to the house. The owner has provided a trolley for ease of transporting luggage and shopping from the parking area
