General Description

The entrance to Birkbank Cottage is through a traditional Lake District porch-way leading to a comfortable sitting area, fitted with leather sofas, two wood burners and a snooker table. The cottage is kept in the original farmhouse style with modern fittings and solutions. The front patio is conveniently accessible through the sitting room right by the snooker table.

The sitting room leads to the kitchen and the dining room. The kitchen itself is equipped with an electric oven, a dishwasher and a farmhouse style table sitting six. Please note that the range cooker shown in the photos is currently not in use. The sitting room is equipped with matching tables which can be moved together to provide dining space for 12. There is a flatscreen TV in the dining area.

The utility room attached to the kitchen is well equipped with an additional fridge freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and a storage room.

All bedrooms are based on the first floor. The first double bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with bath and shower, and there are an additional three double rooms with en-suite showers. The family room offers a separate area with twin beds and en-suite shower to the rear.

All bedrooms are equipped with wall mounted TVs.

The highlight of the cottage is a very spacious, luxurious bathroom which takes over the second floor. Velux windows and free standing bath, along with the marble effect tiles provide an unique space to unwind and relax.

A professionally landscaped and enclosed garden offers space to relax at the rear of the cottage.

Guests to Birkbank have complimentary use of the spa at Armthwaite Hall & Hotel, which is around a 20-30 minute drive away, including use of the pool and other facilities on offer. This allows up to four guests at any one time to use these facilities with the provided passes.
