Hardingill is a traditional end terrace cottage full of quirky and cosy features. The cottage sleeps 4 people in two bedrooms and can accommodate a further two people using the sofa bed and chair bed in the snug. The original front door has been closed up and entry is via the back door accessed through the front yard and rear garden or through a new front door.
The back door opens into the kitchen. There is a tiled floor and a small breakfast bar with stools for seating. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped for holiday self catering and features an electric range cooker in a recess, microwave, plenty of storage space and a separate utility room. There is an original sandstone lintel above the cooker and old steps down to the small utility room.
A door opens to the old original stairs down to the utility room. This is a small room that houses a freezer, a washing machine, iron and ironing board, cot, high chair and hot water bottles for the colder nights.
There are steps from the kitchen to a small alcove for hanging coats and storing boots and the door to the bathroom. There are hooks for dog leads and a supply of doggy bags. The bathroom has a velux window above a bath, a separate shower cubicle, WC and washbasin.
Three steps from the kitchen lead to the sitting room, please mind your head. There is a comfortable sofa and armchair and a basket of cosy fleece blankets provided for snuggling up on winter evenings. The sitting room is arranged around the fireplace and flat screen TV, comfortably seating 4 people. A selection of local interest and walking magazines are provided as well as a varied selection of DVDs. The woodburner is set in a feature fireplace with a decorative wooden plinth. The initial supply of fuel (fire lighters, kindling and logs) is provided. Further supplies are available locally.
The sitting room looks to the front of the property and there is a door to exit the property from the front. A door leads through to the separate dining room. The room is furnished with a dining table with seating for 6 people and a window to the garden that catches the sun throughout the day.
A stone curved staircase leads down to the snug, a warm and cosy space with an exposed stone wall and a feature stained glass window. There is a flatscreen TV and DVD and sofa bed in the snug but the stairs are not suitable for the infirm. The sofa converts into a double bed, and a single chair bed and bedding is provided.
The first floor is accessed via a door to stairs from the kitchen. The carpeted stairs lead to the first floor where there is a double bedroom with an exposed stone wall, hanging rail and window overlooking the fields and then towards the coast and Isle of Man.
There is a door to a further flight of stairs, with a hand rail to the attic bedroom. This bedroom is in the eaves of the property and has a lovely outlook over the surrounding countryside and far reaching fell views to Black Combe, and the coast. In a clear day you can even see the Isle of Man. The bed will be made up as a king unless otherwise requested. It can also be made up as a twin bedroom on request.
The stairs to the attic bedroom are carpeted but fairly steep so not suitable for the infirm.
Outside there is a small rear yard and a terraced garden above. There are steps to the patio that has a picnic table and views over the fells. The garden is enclosed by a low fence and has banked planting. The front yard is enclosed with a wall and a gate.
