Fellgarth is a stunning cottage with equally stunning views from its large windows. It sleeps eight - or nine at a push - across four bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor. Although the living accommodation would suit less-abled guests who sleep in the bottom bedroom, please be aware that access to the cottage is via steps or a steep slope.
There is a front and back entrance to this cottage and the first time guests enter will be via the back door into the kitchen. Greeted by a welcome pack full of local produce, this large kitchen has been refurbished in a sensitive, modern style and is generously equipped. A split, two-level electric oven and hob sits alongside a microwave, dishwasher, large fridge-freezer, blender and toaster. A large utility cupboard contains a useful washing machine and tumble dryer. Two dining tables can be used separately or pushed together, either next to the wood burning stove or under the large window overlooking St Sunday Crag. Two window seats are located in the kitchen as well to make the most of the stunning views on offer.
The living room is situated at the front of the cottage and takes in the double aspect views of St Sunday Crag, the Fairfield Horseshoe, Gavel Pike and Patterdale Common to the front and Hartsop and up the scenic Kirkstone Pass to the side; the summit of Helvellyn can even be seen from the comfort of the cottage. Hours can be pleasurably whiled away watching the wildlife in the garden from the window seats, which includes red squirrels, woodpeckers, rabbits and an array of bird life. Another wood burning stove warms guests, who can read the books provided or watch TV in any of the two three-seater sofas or two armchairs.
The ground floor accommodation is completed with a double bedroom - with double aspect views to the side (Hartsop) and rear (Place Fell) - and a bathroom, which includes an over-bath shower and a separate WC.
The first floor houses three bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en suite). The kingsize master bedroom has an en suite bathroom (with an over-bath shower and WC), plentiful storage and views to the side of Place Fell towards Glenridding. A twin room has views to the front and Hartsop to the side, while the fourth room contains two bunk beds with views to the rear - please note, the top bunk does have limited head height and is more suited for a child. This room also contains a small single bed, which is located below the eaves and is very restricted in terms of space (which is why Fellgarth is listed as sleeping eight or nine guests), so we recommend that guests view the photo of this bed before assigning a family member to it! The family bathroom on this floor has an over-bath electric shower.
The unenclosed sloping garden wraps around the cottage and features a picnic table. An outbuilding makes for a useful boot or drying room for wet and muddy gear. When driving to the cottage, cars can either be parked on the private layby just before the cottage or in the large open garage just beyond the property. There is space for parking 3 cars at the garage (2 inside the garage and 1 across the back of the parked cars). There is also a small layby on the left hand side before you reach Fellgarth; there is space for 2 guest cars in this layby - please note, enough space needs to be left for a third car to be parked here (this comes with the annex that isn't included with the cottage).
