Larch Cottage is the very image of a traditional little cottage in the heart of Borrowdale. Nestled in the hamlet of Rosthwaite this quaint slice of Lakeland history makes a wonderful base to explore the unparalleled walking available in its immediate surroundings.

Guests enter the cottage directly into the cosy living room, it has an old-world feel about it with exposed beams, an open fire with stone surround and a comfy sofa and two armchairs arranged around the television. An under-stairs cupboard has hanging space for coats and shoes. From the living room there are four steps up to a little snug with a further television and DVD player. Perfect if your party has differing opinions on what to watch!

To the rear of the living room is the compact kitchen and dining space. It's equipped with electric hobs, a built-in fan oven, microwave, under-counter fridge, washer/dryer and dining table with bench seating.

Moving upstairs from the living room there's a light, open landing (care should be taken at the top of the stairs due to its slightly open nature) from which you access the bedrooms and bathroom. The master bedroom is a sweet double room with a small wardrobe for storage and a gorgeous view to Bessyboot. The lovely twin room has a wardrobe with drawers and view over the hamlet of Rosthwaite towards the iconic forms of Castle Crag and Catbells. The bathroom has a traditional white suite with over-bath electric shower.

Outside to the rear there's a gated back yard featuring a raised terrace with a table and chairs for outdoor dining. The views from here are absolutely stunning, what a situation to enjoy a morning cuppa or an evening glass of wine. To the front of the house there is a patio and mature shrubs.
