Enjoying beautiful uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside, this cottage is nestled half a mile along a private farm track – perfect for a secluded, relaxing break.
Built in 1616, this is a traditional Lakeland cottage on a working farm in the heart of Longsleddale. The cottage enjoys beautiful uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside and is perfect for a secluded, relaxing break being located half a mile along a private farm track. The River Sprint flows through the farm and fishing can be arranged by the owner. In the autumn, you can watch the spectacle of leaping salmon and trout in the river.
At the head of the valley you can climb the Haweswater fells including High Street and Harter Fell. Kendal is 20 minutes away by car. The town is considered to be the southern gateway to the Lake District and the guide book writer Alfred Wainwright wrote his Pictorial Guides whilst living in Kendal. Kendal offers varied shopping and a fantastic arts centre showing everything from comedy to films and exhibitions.
The front door at the cottage opens straight into the main open-plan living space. To the right are comfy chairs around the multi-fuel burner and TV with VCR player and a DVD player. A little nook by the window with a round table is the ideal place for jigsaws or having quiet time.
To the left is the long dining table with the kitchen area beyond. The kitchen is equipped with electric cooker, microwave, fridge and plenty of storage space.
The utility room houses a sink, freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. There is enough space for bike storage as well as an external door for easy access.
