A covered porch leads into the spacious entrance hallway, the ideal spot for leaving wet coats and boots before continuing inside.
The cosy snug has an inviting L-shaped sofa and check-patterned armchair, there's also a wall-mounted TV in here or why not escape for a peaceful few moments with a good book? Behind a sliding door from the hallway is the lovely living room. In here you'll find another large L-shaped sofa and a second TV so there's no need to fight over the remote control here! The living room also has a wonderful wood burning stove, perfect for cosy evenings in in front of the fire.
Continue through to the back of the cottage and the large kitchen, a real joy. Light, bright and airy, beauty and function come together fantastically here as the stunning kitchen is well equipped with everything you could need for a self catering holiday. The electric range-style oven with gas hobs is sure to be a hit with the cooks in the group; there's also a free-standing Meile fridge-freezer, additional separate freezer, useful microwave and toaster. The pretty Butler's sink is in keeping with the other period features but there's also a dishwasher if you don't fancy doing the dishes by hand. There isn't a kettle but instant boiling water is provided by the boiling water tap on the sink, a real luxury. The 2 stylish stools at the central island unit are ideal for keeping the cook company; early risers will also love enjoying a peaceful breakfast here before everyone else is up.
The kitchen opens into the bright sun room which doubles as the dining area. Gather round the large wooden dining table, perfect for comparing notes on the day's events over a delicious home cooked meal, or spread out maps and guidebooks and plan tomorrow's. With windows on 3 sides, the sun room has a delightful outlook over the garden and countryside beyond. Ornithologists will love sitting in here and watching the comings and goings of the many birds who also like to pay Garth Farm - or its garden at least! - a visit. The large glazed door opens onto a paved area extending the sun room into the garden.
The former pantry has now been converted into a fabulous ground floor shower room. There's a fantastic large walk-in shower and WC. The pantry's original cool shelf now houses the unique stone washbasin, a real wow feature of this beautiful bathroom. Also on the ground floor is a handy utility room housing a useful washing machine, should you wish to make use of that during your stay.
Throughout the ground floor are beautiful stone flagged floors and original wooden beams, making the rooms feel cosy and welcoming - just what you'd want in a home from home.
Onwards and upwards to the first floor and the 4 bedrooms, all found off the traditional panelled landing.
First up is the beautiful master bedroom. This is a lovely, bright room and the super king bed is perfect for indulging in a long lie in - you are on holiday after all! A built-in mirrored wardrobe provides plenty of storage and there's also a pretty antique chair, perfect for relaxing with a book, and quaint dressing table with stool. The pretty king size room has a useful built-in wardrobe, a painted chest of drawers and matching bedside tables, as well as its own charming dressing table with mirror. The next room is a spacious twin with a feature former fireplace and an original wooden beam. For storage there's a built-in wardrobe and the 2 bedside tables have useful drawers too. This room has wonderful views over the garden and paddock, lending the room a calming, peaceful feel. The fourth bedroom is also a twin; a cosy room, decorated in light blue tones, you're sure to feel relaxed in here. Again, this room has plenty of storage thanks to the freestanding wardrobe and handy shelving unit.
Also on the first floor is the spacious family bathroom. With a WC, period-style washbasin and panelled bath, perfect for a relaxing soak in the tub. The bathroom also a large separate shower which has a rainfall-effect shower head and a second handheld attachment, meaning all tastes are catered for here. The cosy underfloor heating in here is a welcome addition and means you'll have warm toes when stepping out of the shower or bath.
Outside is no less impressive than inside this fantastic farmhouse. The patio has an outdoor table and seating for 8 and there's also a BBQ if grilling is your thing, perfect for dining al fresco with a stunning backdrop. Also on the patio is a delightful pond area, a haven for wildlife and birds and the perfect spot for a peaceful few moments. There's also an outside toilet and washbasin, a very handy addition if you're enjoying time outside or have your walking boots on. Guests also have access to the neighbouring 5 acre field where you can follow a path to the picturesque River Lune and popular Dalesway.
With all this on offer, Garths Farm isn't to be missed.
