General Description

As soon as you pull up to Leethwaite you cannot miss one of the main attractions of this house: the beautiful views across Bassenthwaite Lake to the Skiddaw fells beyond. Featured in Cumbria Life magazine in June 2021, Leethwaite has been recently renovated throughout to a high standard. This is a traditional Lake District cottage with all the modern comforts and conveniences you could wish for: head inside and you're sure to feel right at home here.

The fitted kitchen is well equipped and sure to be a hit with the chefs in the group. Well equipped with a fantastic range style oven which has 2 electric ovens, electric grill and 5 gas hobs, a useful washer-dryer, larder style fridge-freezer and handy dishwasher so there'll be no need to fight over who has to do the washing up! The breakfast bar is the perfect place for a peaceful breakfast, or for an evening aperitif whilst keeping the cook company.

The living-dining room is a great social space. Gather round the dining table, the perfect place for comparing notes on the day's events over a hearty home cooked meal, before moving to the comfortable living area. Relax in front of the feature double sided wood burner, ideal for cosy nights in in front of the fire. For entertainment there's a TV with Freeview. The double sided wood burner also serves the bright sun room. A wonderfully calming room, it's the perfect place to catch up with a good book - if you can tear yourself away from the stunning views over the lake and fells that is. Ornithologists will love sitting in here too and watching the comings and goings of the many birds who also like to pay Leethwaite - or its garden at least! - a visit.

Also on the ground floor is a fantastic games room, perfect should rain stop play outside. In here you'll find a selection of games and books as well as table football, all sure to be a hit with children and adults alike. A fantastic modern shower room, with a WC, washbasin and fabulous walk in shower, completes the ground floor.

Head upstairs to the first floor and you'll find the 4 spacious bedrooms. First up we have the beautiful master bedroom which has delightful views towards Whinlatter Forest. Why not relax in the superking bed and enjoy an indulgent lie in? You are on holiday after all! This bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom with a WC, wasbasin and bath with shower over, so all tastes are catered for.

Next up there is a lovely twin room (this room can also be made up as a superking on request) and a superking room (this room can be made up as a twin on request), both these bedrooms have wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. Last but by no means least is the charming double room which has a 4 foot 6 bed. As well as shower room on the ground floor, upstairs you'll find another fantastic family shower room with a WC, washbasin and modern shower enclosure, perfect for reinvigorating muscles tired from walking.

The garden enjoys stunning views of the Skiddaw fells across Bassenthwaite Lake, take a seat on the garden furniture and just take it all in. There is lots of wildlife around, sit and wait and see what comes by - you will also have a grandstand seat for watching the ospreys fishing in the lake in the summer. There is also parking for 3 cars on the gravelled area by the cottage, as well as a shed for storing bikes (remember to bring your own bike locks with you) if you prefer to explore on 2 wheels.

This wonderful character cottage, situated in a beautiful spot, is certainly one not to be missed.
