Located in the north of the Lake District, just outside the tranquil village of Ireby, this delightful property offers guests a peaceful and restful stay. It’s part of a complex of three other cottages, one of which is the owner’s home. Set off from the doorstep with walking boots or bikes and discover the nearby hill of Binsey just 3.5 miles away, which offers far-reaching views across Bassenthwaite Lake. This lake (5.5 miles) is a great place for walking, cycling, paddleboarding, canoeing and picnics. It is also the home to a variety of animals, including ospreys and cormorants. Visit the Lakes Distillery (6.5 miles) and stock up on your favourite tipple for a wonderful evening. The popular market towns of Cockermouth and Keswick are also within 12 miles and offer a variety of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.

As you step through the front door of this reverse-level property, you’ll find yourself in the hallway which is handy for storing your boots. To your left, you'll discover a spacious king-size bedroom, where a plush, inviting bed promises a restful night's sleep. Next to this bedroom, a single bedroom awaits, adorned with cosy furnishings and soft linens. The bathroom is also on the ground floor and boasts a shower over the bath and WC. Venturing upstairs, you'll ascend to the heart of the cottage – an open-plan lounge, kitchen, and dining area. Exposed wooden beams overhead add to the rustic charm of this cottage. The cosy seating area features a Smart TV so you can sit and watch your favourite shows or movies whilst admiring the picturesque views through the large window in the background. As you move towards the kitchen, you'll find it well-equipped with modern appliances, ready for culinary adventures. The dining table sits by a Juliette balcony, allowing you to dine with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.

Outside, there is an unenclosed courtyard garden to the front of the cottage with outdoor seating and a BBQ, perfect for al fresco dining and relaxation. It’s the ideal spot for enjoying sunny afternoons or starlit evenings. For a bit of friendly competition or indoor fun, the shared games room awaits.
