General Description

Hillcrest Cottage has a traditional front door with climbers growing over the porch. There is a small front garden that has been thoughtfully planted to include many beautiful shrubs and flowers. The door opens into a porch with traditional stone flooring and hanging area. An original internal door then opens into the lounge that retains many charming original features including exposed timber beams, wooden lintels, traditional sandstone inglenook fireplace with cast iron wood burning stove on a beautiful slate hearth. There is a chest of storage drawers, a comfortable double sofa bed in the sitting room to accommodate a 4th guest, as well as a television.

There is a door to the hallway off which there is an archway to the kitchen and stairs to the first floor. The kitchen is fully fitted with modern units, gas hob and electric oven, Belfast sink and a dishwasher. In additional there is an integrated fridge, separate freezer and a microwave. A step leads down to the conservatory and dining area. A washer/dryer is available for guests located under the stairs.

The beautiful conservatory is oak framed with a tiled roof. Inside there is inset lighting in the floor, a cast iron wood burner, floor to ceiling windows and a side door to the garden. Sofas provide a comfortable seating area and there is a wall mounted TV with DVD player in this room.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. The master bedroom has a double bed, wardrobe and dressing table. It features stunning exposed beams and a third wood burning stove. The second bedroom has a single bed and a pull out bed. This room benefits from views across the countryside to the Ennerdale fells.

The family bathroom features a bath, WC, wash basin, heated towel rail and a separate shower cubicle.

Outside there is access to the garden via the conservatory or via a side gate through the picket fence. The garden has been landscaped to make the most of the space and has a stunning layout of slate chipped paths, well stocked borders and trees and an outside dining table. The paths also lead through a wooden planted pergola to a lawn, decking, and stone water fountain. The garden is enclosed, although adventurous small dogs might be able to find their way out. There are wonderful views over the rural landscape and fells beyond. 

Although the garden is enclosed there are some gaps where inquisitive dogs may be able to get through so isn't escape proof for pets.

There is a lean-to log store.
