This stunning traditional slate-fronted cottage with its hydrangea flowerbed is situated on a quiet lane right in the centre of Grasmere village. It has been beautifully renovated throughout with luxury fittings and pretty accessories, giving a delightful rustic cottage feel.
Entry via the front door leads into the charming open plan lounge. There is useful coat storage at the front door for jackets and outdoor gear. A wood burner keeps the lounge warm and the comfy sofas, Smart TV and bluetooth speaker to use with your MP3 player or phone are all lovely touches to make it the prefect spot to relax after a long day on the fells. A selection of guidebooks, board games and jigsaw puzzles are available for use during your stay. The dining area has a wooden table and chairs for four people.
Off the dining area is the open plan galley-style kitchen, which is extremely well equipped with an integrated fridge, gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, small counter-top freezer, washer-dryer and wine cooler. The beautiful kitchen is complimented with slate worktops. The skylight and bi-folding doors allow a stream of natural light. With a great selection of glassware, crockery and utensils you'll have everything you need for cosy meals in.
Throughout the ground floor the slate flag floors, cast iron radiators and sash windows compliment the country cottage feel.
A stunning feature wooden staircase leads up from the dining area to the first floor bedrooms. Both bedrooms are beautifully decorated and continue the rustic cottage theme with solid wooden furniture, cast iron radiators, sash windows and oak latch doors. Luxury bed linen and chenille throws complete the look. Both bedrooms are equipped with touch base lamps, Smart TVs and hairdryers. One bedroom has views over the chapel courtyard and the other over the rooftops to Silver How mountain.
Both bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with gorgeous drench showers, toilets, washbasins and heated towel rails.
