As you walk into the cottage, you enter into a small entrance way, with handy hooks to hang your coats on the back of the door. Immediately in front of you is the bathroom and the kitchen is to the left, leading through to the living room.
The refurbished cottage is bright and welcoming throughout. The ground floor bathroom has a bath with shower over, toilet, sink with mirror, and heated towel rail.
Across the hall is the kitchen-diner, a lovely and bright space with a large sash window that looks up onto a grassy rock-terrace area at the back of the cottage. Decorated in a country cottage style, it's well equipped with a microwave, oven with electric hob, washing machine, Welsh dresser, and a dining table seating five. It's the perfect place for sociable meal prep before you all sit down together to enjoy a tasty meal! There is also a medium-sized fridge-freezer in a small pantry area within the kitchen.
From the kitchen, you walk through to a cosy living room, which has beautiful views of the gill and the mountain tops of Bessy Boot and Glaramara. The living room has a double sofa, two armchairs, open fire under a wonderful stone chimney breast, slate bookshelves with a selection of books, and a small smart TV. There is a set of three tables, for enjoying a tea biscuit, and a footstool next to the sofa. This is a lovely space to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet at the end of each day's adventure.
A wooden door separates the living room from the stairs, which offers a nice division between the downstairs area and the bedrooms upstairs. As you walk up the stairs, you enter into a very comfortable carpeted hallway, which is nice and spacious, with high ceilings and lots of light coming in through a velux window. The first room you get to is the single room, which has a single bed, a bedside cabinet with lamp, a sink and a set of draws. The room has been tastefully decorated in relaxing floral greens and purples and the window looks across to the terraced area behind the house. There is a small WC next to this and then a twin bedroom. The twin room is a wonderfully bright and tranquil room with two single beds (each with a reading light), a set of draws, and a sink with mirror. Further along the corridor is a small cupboard with space for hanging shirts.
The master bedroom is bright and spacious, with views out of the window that will catch your breath at first sight. Because the cottage sits uphill, you are elevated above the valley and have a sweeping outlook across fields of Herdwick sheep and up to the formidable mountain tops of the valley. The room is stylishly decorated in relaxing green hues and has a double bed with bedside drawers and a lamp on each side, a wooden chair, an armchair, a sink with mirror, chest of drawers, bookshelf of books, and a wardrobe (containing an iron and ironing board). You will find a hairdryer in the bedside drawer.
Outside, a small lockable shed houses a tumble dryer and can also be used for storing bikes (there is space for either one adult bike or a couple of children's bikes).
Though there is no garden, the cottage sits on a natural terrace with Hause Gill flowing past, so you can choose to sit on the grass next to the gill on a sunny day!
