Sitting in an elevated position on the edge of the popular village of Glenridding is Fell Foot Cottage, a wonderful cottage for up to 5 people. A lovely base from which to explore the surrounding area, this is a real gem of a cottage surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Lake District. After a short climb up the access track – not suitable for motor vehicles – step inside and you’re sure to feel right at home.
At the rear of the cottage you’ll find the fantastic kitchen-diner, well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge-freezer, useful washing machine and even a dishwasher – though you might not mind washing up by hand thanks to the view from the kitchen sink up Glenridding Dodd! At the front of the cottage is the lovely living room. Spacious, light and airy, there are stunning views from the windows towards the magnificent Hellvellyn mountain range. The armchair and 4-seater sofa are positioned around the wood burner, perfect for cosy evenings in, and there’s also a wall mounted television with on-demand Apple TV in here for entertainment.
Up the stairs to the first floor and 2 of the 3 bedrooms. First up we have the spacious master bedroom and this is most definitely a room with a view! A delightful double room with a stunning outlook towards Helvellyn, bring your morning cuppa back to bed and indulge in a long lie in – the bed is perfectly positioned to make the most of the beautiful views so it would be rude not to! There’s also a charming window seat and the handy wardrobe is great for storage. The cosy single room is just as lovely but this time the views are to the rear of the cottage, up the steep slopes of Glenridding Dodd where native Herdwick sheep can often be seen grazing.
Also on the first floor is the family shower room. With a WC, washbasin and modern shower cubicle, ideal for a refreshing shower after a day out on the fell tops.
Onwards and upwards to the second floor and the third bedroom, a lovely double. As you’d expect from a converted attic, the space up here is quirky but charming. Behind the bed is a useful shelf and there’s also a chest of drawers for storage too. The inviting chill out area up here is the perfect place to escape to and relax with a good book. A futon-style mattress is available for children under ten years and allows the room to be used as a twin for children.
Outside to the front of the cottage is a delightful sloping garden. With far-ranging views of the fells the garden bench is a wonderful place to enjoy a glass of wine.
