General Description

Blea Brows is a quirky, nineteenth century three bedroom cottage sleeping up to six guests. It has a right of access to a private ( though shared with the other properties on the estate) lakeside swimming beach, perfect for dogs and supervised children. Pull on your wellies and pack a picnic, the perfect way to spend a day.

The entrance to the cottage is via the front and into a hallway. Here you'll find plenty of space to store boots and coats, with even more space available in the handy ground floor WC. The hall leads to the living room, which features a large wood burning stove, two cosy sofas, an armchair, as well as a dining table for six guests. Character is gleaned from the old wooden beams and feature corner fireplace. A Smart TV with FreeSat is available, so don't forget to bring your Netflix login. The dining table is positioned in the large window, which looks out onto the cobbled courtyard.

The kitchen can be found at the back of the cottage, with the sink overlooking the rear patio - the perfect spot for a peaceful moment watching the visiting birdlife. The well-equipped kitchen contains an electric oven, four-ring gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washer-dryer and breakfast table. The back door leads out from the kitchen to the lovely patio area, where a barbecue is provided for guests. Views are of the surrounding woodland.

Upstairs on the first floor are the three bedrooms and bathrooms. The master bedroom, which overlooks the cobbled courtyard, has a double bed and en suite containing a walk-in shower and WC. The other two bedrooms are twins, each containing two single beds. Both twin rooms have lovely views over the surrounding woodland, perfect for retiring back to bed with a cup of tea. The family bathroom has a WC, sink, and over-bath shower.

The cottage is set in sloping woodland, which is ideal for young explorers. While the area is mostly enclosed, dogs with a will to escape will be able to do so! There is a paved area with seating in which to have a barbecue. While there is no secure shelter, bikes can be locked away out of sight (bring your own locks) and the only passers-by will be guests and residents from the handful of cottages that share the same courtyard. There is space for two cars to park next to the courtyard entrance (which is where cars should remain as a courtesy to other residents once unloading has taken place).
