General Description

A gate leads into the enclosed garden and the entrance to the cottage where a sheep ornament is ready to welcome you. Inside the front door the stairs lead up from the hall but turn right to find the utility room, king-size bedroom and bathroom.

To the right is a large bedroom with a king-size bed, the window overlooks the front garden with glimpses of Clough Head and the top of Walla Crag over the houses to tempt you out. If you like lazy mornings, evenings or just want some peace from the rest of the family a TV with Freeview is perfectly positioned for viewing from the bed. Bedside tables, wardrobe and chest of drawers provide plenty of storage and there is also a handy full-length mirror in this comfortable bedroom.

Next to the bedroom a modern fully-tiled family bathroom offers ample space with a shower attachment on the bath and sink on vanity unit. A heated towel rail means however long you soak in the bath your towel will be warm and snuggly when you get out.

Also off the hallway the utility room contains a washing machine, tumble dryer and coat hooks, there are also dog towels available for those canine rub downs at the end of a great walk.

Up the stairs and past the shelves of elephants, there is also a set of Wainwright guides here to borrow for walk ideas or just to enjoy these beautifully illustrated books. Straight ahead at the top is a twin bedroom with vaulted ceiling, bedside table and skylight.

To the right is a bright and exceptionally spacious double bedroom; an indulgent and relaxing room complete with en-suite shower room and a lovely space for relaxing in. Enjoy the vista over the village to the fells, those in view include Clough Head, Walla Crag and Bleaberry fell, or lie in bed and enjoy a view of the stars through the skylight. The vaulted ceilings add to the feeling of space and calm in this light room, take some time out and relax on the 3-seat sofa by the window. Storage can be found in the bedside table drawers with ample hanging space in the double wardrobe and there is also full-length mirror. Off to the left is a fully tiled en-suite shower room with heated towel rail, the luxury shower has a large fixed rain head as well as the usual moveable head for a properly refreshing shower.

Turn left from the stairs up another step into a welcoming and comfortable living room; dual aspect with a vaulted ceiling this is a lovely big light room. Two 2-seat sofas and a 3-seat sofa gather round a coffee table on a deep pile rug, perfect for social evenings or getting together to watch a film on the large Freeview TV with DVD player. A modern electric fire provides additional cosiness for winter evenings. Bookshelves around the room hold a range of maps, travel books and popular fiction plus DVDs, games and more elephants! The windows offer more inspiration for walkers, artists and photographers with views of Skiddaw one way and the Helvellyn and Bleaberry Fell ridges the other.

An open archway leads off the living room to the kitchen-dining room completing the lovely sociable living space. The dining table seats 6 in the carpeted dining area whilst at the other end of the room a large modern kitchen is arranged around a rug; 2 skylights bring in plenty of light. The well-equipped kitchen contains a dishwasher, electric oven, gas hob, cooker hood, microwave, fridge, freezer and toaster.

Back down the stairs and out through the front door your outside space is a fully enclosed paved garden with chairs and table to allow 6 people to dine al fresco in comfort. A range of planters with trees, shrubs and flowers dot the garden and there is a view to over the rooftops of the houses opposite to Bleaberry Fell. Bike storage is available in the shed tucked around the corner.
