General Description

Bluebell Cottage is a delightful, and deceptively spacious, 18th century semi detatched cottage with bags of character situated in the peaceful surroundings of Yanwath. Refurbished in a modern style while retaining many of its original features, it sleeps four people in two beautifully decorated bedrooms and offers plenty of space for a family to spread out.

On arrival at the property guests can enter via the main door into a large entrance hallway. From here you can drop off any coats and muddy boots from your days out in the large utility room where you'll also find the washing machine and freezer, there is a cloakroom WC here also. The hallway has double doors out onto the back patio where there is seating to enjoy a cuppa in the morning sunshine.

Moving through to the well equipped new kitchen. It's a light and spacious room with fan oven, ceramic hobs, microwave, under-counter fridge and dishwasher. It's a lovely light space ideal for the foodies among you to cook up a storm! The kitchen leads on to the lovely dining room, this has a gorgeous dining table seating up to six next to a delightful decorative fireplace. Just off the dining room is the delightful sun room looking out on the mature gardens and benefitting from the evening sun. With two comfy armchairs it's the perfect place to enjoy a good book and a glass of wine while enjoying the comings and goings of the abundant birdlife visiting the garden.

The living room has been beautifully refurbished while retaining lovely original features such as exposed beams, original stripped wooden doors and an open stone fireplace. Bringing guests right into the 21st century the room has two leather sofas, a light elegant colour scheme, subtle lighting and a Smart TV with Wifi. One of the sofas in the lounge is a sofa bed, and this can be used to accommodate a party of 5 (including children - we are unable to accept bookings of 5 adults)

The staircase leading up from the dining room has a window at the top looking out towards the Pennines. From this landing you first arrive at the spacious modern bathroom. It has a large bath and over-bath mixer shower and a lovely light airy feel about it.

The first bedroom you reach is the beautiful master bedroom with king-size bed and two lovely windows looking out onto the gardens. It has a wardrobe and dresser and is elegantly decorated in subtle colours with charming artwork. The twin bedroom along the landing is no less delightful with built in wardrobes and its own wash basin built in to an alcove. This bedroom will be set up as a twin room, if you would like it set up as super king please let us know at the time of booking.

Moving outside the house guests will love the glorious mature gardens. Thoughtfully planted to offer year round colour, there are many nooks and crannies to enjoy a peaceful sit outside soaking up the views of mighty Blencathra in the distance. Truly a peaceful and charming place to enjoy a break.
