Property code: 90416

A cosy retreat in the heart of the countryside and a beautiful bolthole for two, this delightful abode is located within the pretty village of Gamblesby, 15 miles from the Lake District National Park. The perfect base for a romantic break, lovers of the great outdoors can enjoy walking routes accessed directly from the property and a number of cycling routes also. After a day of adventuring, retire to the comforts of this welcoming home, where you can enjoy a sundowner in the courtyard while you plan your next activity. The village location is very quiet, with the main daily soundtrack consisting of birdsong, the odd tractor and an occasional passing herd of cows or sheep!

Taking a step up into the property, upon entering you will find yourself in the open plan lounge/kitchen area. Brimming with countryside charm, it is a very warm and welcoming space. The decor and furnishings have been thoughtfully considered offering all you need to assure of a comfortable break; a handy breakfast bar in the roomy kitchenette, sumptuous seating in the lounge and plenty of space to relax after a day of exploring the Lake District. Upstairs there is a king-size bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. Step outside and enjoy your morning cuppa in the shared courtyard, which is quite the sun trap, or perhaps swing open part of the stable-style front door and invite the outside in.

Explore the stunning Cumbrian landscape within easy reach - just 1 mile from the property there is a bakery and a pub, perfect for a pit stop, or hop on your bike and head to the famous Hartside Pass which presents breath taking panoramas across the Solway Firth to Scotland. Ullswater is a short drive away and from here you can take the steamer across the lake, exploring the famous Aira Force waterfalls en route, whilst the market town of Penrith (10 miles) offers a good choice of shops and eateries to visit.

Situated in a vary quiet village. a mile away from a shop, cafe and pub. Very friendly hosts and neighbours. The kitchen is compact, and well equiped with a lovely, comfortable bed. The cottage is small, but still comfortable with a good size bathroom with an over the bath shower that works well. The cottage is part of a group of 4, all connected tRead moreo each other and would be good for an extended family or group of friends. The area is beautiful with plenty of walks for ramblers. Hide

Lovely cozy well maintained cottage which is also dog friendly. Lovely gesture of a small hamper, homemade scones, jom and clotted cream and fresh bread from the local bakery. Bed already made up with fresh towels also. The owners Karen and Paul are very attentive and live in the farmhouse on site.

Excellent hosts and really clean and great little cottage. Everything we could need was there and more. Quiet location but only 20 minutes drive from Penrith and only 30 minutes from Pooley Bridge and Lake Ulswater. Definitely recommend
