Eaglesfield is nestled in the village of Rosthwaite in the heart of the beautiful Borrowdale Valley with views of the surrounding Northern Fells to the front, rear and side of the cottage. It sleeps up to four people and makes a perfect launch pad for all sorts of lake and mountain adventures, with two hotels open to non-residents and a cafe (frequented by Prince Charles, so I hear) within 200 meters from the cottage.
The cottage is situated on the quiet, narrow Howe Lane, so passing traffic is minimal. Upon arrival, there are car parking spaces for up to two cars in the private driveway. You will notice the enclosed lawned front garden as you approach the house and there is a similar enlcosed garden to the rear. Both feature orginal dry stone walls.
Walking through the front door, you will find the living room to the left (with an open fire and traditional furniture, including a small two-seater sofa and two small armchairs), a bijoux dining room (with a fine oak table seating up to four people), a small, but well-equipped kitchen (including oven, electric hob, freestanding fridge-freezer, microwave and dishwasher) and bathroom (with an over-bath shower). Please note there is no washing machine at the cottage. The living and dining rooms each have views over the front garden, its dry stone wall and a pleasant tree-lined hillock across the lane with onward views of Great Crag and Brund Fell. The kitchen and living room (double aspect) look out to the lawned back garden, dry stone wall, the field behind the garden to Johnny's Wood and High Scawdel, Dale Head and Maiden Moor and High Spy on a clear day. Garden furniture is provided including a table, chairs and sun loungers.
On the first floor are the double and twin bedrooms. Both are minimally furnished, but each features a large double wardrobe with built-in shelving. The double bedroom looks toward's next door's house with Bessyboot fell behind, while the twin room has a view over the front garden and the picturesque hillock toward Great Crag and Brund Fell. There is a separate WC on the first floor.
