General Description

Comb Beck is a beautiful semi-detached cottage for four perched above a ravine with its namesake stream cascading below.

On arrival you enter a heated porch with space for shoes and hanging coats. Through here is the bright modern kitchen. It is a beautiful space with a breakfast table in front of a large window letting in tons of light and enjoying a view through to Skiddaw in the distance. It's a tastefully designed room with slate worktops, a large Belfast sink, wooden units and underfloor heating. The kitchen is equipped with electric hobs and fan oven, microwave, washer/dryer and fridge with freezer compartment. On this floor is the bathroom which has a 'd' bath with over-bath shower. Like the kitchen it has a beautiful slate floor with underfloor heating.

Beyond the kitchen is the cosy living room, it has a log burner set within an original sandstone fireplace and two deep cosy red sofas for lounging after your busy Lake District days. It's a lovely space with an extending dining table and a glass door leading out on the balcony overlooking Comb Beck itself. There is a television, DVD/CD player and the owners have thoughtfully provided a selection of books, maps and games for visitors.

Through a traditional wooden latched door the characterful winding staircase takes you up to the first floor. The light airy twin room has lovely fresh decor and a view down to Comb Beck. The master bedroom has a double bed and a warm and welcoming colour scheme. Another door from this room takes you up a narrow wooden staircase to the attic. This delightful warm space is just perfect for taking yourself off and reading a book in peace. Alternatively families will love using it as a place to play games. It has a velux window looking out onto the tree tops across the beck and a small window framing the most wonderful view of Skiddaw.

Outside the cottage is a gorgeous balcony with a table and chairs and a tiered garden leading down to Comb Beck itself. Due to the terraced nature of the garden it may not be suitable for young children.

As this road gets no through traffic the only sounds you're likely to hear are the water bouncing over rocks below you and birdsong in the woodland opposite. Occasionally you might see the odd red squirrel and roe deer peeking out from a tree across the way. What a blissful way to relax!
