General Description

Bitt Cottage is a beautifully converted Wesleyan Chapel in set amid the lovely rolling countryside of Santon Bridge. Sleeping up to four people in two lovely bedrooms and set just at the mouth of the glorious Wasdale Valley it makes a perfect base from which to explore this unspoiled area.

Guests enter via the front door of the property into a large light porch with a utility cupboard and bags of space for coats and muddy boots. From here you enter the gorgeous living room, it's a roomy and elegant space with two windows taking in the far-reaching views across rolling fields to Muncaster Fell. There are two large leather sofas arranged around the open fire and TV with DVD player and Freeview +. Beyond the living room guests will find the well-equipped and thoughtfully refurbished kitchen diner. It's a light and open dual aspect room making the most of all the daylight on offer. It boasts light modern units, a built-in fan oven, ceramic hobs, microwave, a slimline dishwasher and fridge-freezer along with a washing machine and tumble dryer. There's a wooden dining table for four which makes a perfect place to take in the lovely views.

The bright fresh decor continues through to the two lovely bedrooms. The master bedroom has a double bed and fitted wardrobes, it looks out onto the garden at the back of the house and it's the perfect place to enjoy a morning cuppa in bed while watching the comings and goings of the visiting birdlife. The twin room is situated off the living room and is a delightful warm space with fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom has an over-bath electric shower and there is also a handy extra WC.

Guests reach the large garden via the back porch which has plenty more space for muddy boots. The garden is surrounded by mature trees and hedges and has a lawn area to the rear and large lawn to the side with dining furniture for making the most of sunny evening dining opportunities. There is also a 1.2m-high fence enclosing the whole garden. Benefitting from the afternoon and evening light, it makes a great place to enjoy a glass of wine while discussing your Lakeland adventures.
