Croft House is a splendid barn conversion with a wonderful sitting room that makes a great area for everyone to get together in. This is a light and airy room with chandeliers, comfortable seating, fantastic views and a large dining table which easily seats 12 (or more if you wish). The kitchen is well equipped and there are also six bedrooms. The gardens are fabulous and include a secret garden in among the rhododendrons.
Lamplugh is the perfect starting place to explore the fells, rivers, lakes and tarns of this beautiful part of the Lake District. There are a variety of walks right from the front door, or Loweswater Lake is just three miles away, with Buttermere and Crummock just a mile or two beyond. In the opposite direction is Ennerdale Lake with its forest walks and mountain biking.
For shops, Cockermouth (10 mins) has a Sainsbury's as well as a wide variety of smaller independent shops, pubs and cafes. The Kirkstile Inn at Loweswater is renowned throughout the Lakes for the quality of its food and ales. This four hundred year old pub has excellent food, open fires and its own brewery, and has been awarded the CAMRA Pub of the Year for West Cumbria and Western Lake District.
