Property code: SZ440

With a host of local footpaths to explore from the doorstep, this beautiful dog-friendly property is a fantastic choice for families of keen walkers looking to explore the picturesque Eden Valley.

Located in the peaceful rural village of Croglin is this wonderful place to retreat to after a day out exploring. Inside this modern cottage, you'll find lovely accommodation for up to six people. The entrance to the cottage doubles as a cosy snug area and leads you into the fantastic open-plan kitchen/dining/living area. A handy utility room completes the ground floor. The three bedrooms and two bathrooms are upstairs on the first floor and at the rear of the cottage is a delightful patio area with stunning views over the rolling fields beyond. Two dogs are also welcome too, but we do ask that they are kept downstairs. There is a lockable shed for storage of bikes.

Croglin is a small pretty village in the Eden Valley, located in a landscape of which stretches from this Cumbrian fellside and is part of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Unesco Global Geopark (to the River Eden) 'Fellfoot Forward Project'. This major project aims to preserve wildlife scarce throughout the rest of the UK, and protect heritage features for residents and visitors alike. This is a rural area and keen walkers and cyclists (nearby Hartside Height being a final stage on more than one occasion for the Tour of Britain) will not be disappointed.

The North Pennines village of Alston, reputedly the highest market settlement in England, is sure to charm with its cobbled streets, market cross and bandstand; ambling around the village is a delightful way to spend an afternoon. For a longer day out, visit the historic border city of Carlisle where you can learn all about the area's Roman heritage at the fantastic Tullie House Museum or visit nearby Hadrians Wall World Heritage Site. Why not head west to the Lake District? Spend a day at beautiful Ullswater; enjoy a walk by the magnificent Aira Force Waterfall, try your hand at paddle boarding or hitch a ride on the popular Ullswater Steamer for a delightful cruise around the lake.

A bright, spacious hallway welcomes you inside Silverdell. Doubling as a snug, the small seating area here is ideal for planning the day's adventures.

The modern kitchen is sure to be a hit with the cooks in the group. It's sleek and stylish and well equipped with everything you'd need for a self-catering holiday, including an electric oven, induction hob and dishwasher - though you might not mind doing the washing up by hand when you the lovely view over the surrunding countryside from the kitchen sink! Early risers will love the breakfast bar in here; it's a fantastic spot for enjoying a peaceful morning coffee.

Continue through to the living/dining room, a fantastic social space. Enjoy hearty home-cooked meal around the wooden farmhouse dining table before relaxing on the soafs in the living area. There's a TV for entertainment in here too.

There's also a handy utility room which houses the washing machine and tumble dryer, should you wish to make use of those during your stay. A useful extra WC completes the ground floor.

Upstairs on the first floor are the three lovely bedrooms. First up is the master bedroom, with a king-size bed and a wonderful views over the village from the window. Why not bring your morning cuppa back to bed and indulge in a long lie in - you are on holiday after all! The wooden wardrobe and chest of drawers provide ample storage and there's also a handy full length mirror and a quirky bucket-style chair. This bedroom has its own stylsih en-suite shower room, with WC, wash basin and modern shower cubicle.

The double bedroom is just as delightful as the master. Decorated in calming neautral tones but with a pop of yellow, it's a wonderfully relaxing room. Again, there's a handy wardrobe and chest of drawers for storage, as well as a charming dressing table and a feature jade-coloured chair. Last but by no means least is the twin room: another lovely bright room with two wooden single beds.

The family bathroom is also on the first floor. With a WC, double wash basin, bath and separate shower cubicle, it's perfect whether you prefer a soak in the bath or a refreshing shower.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.
