Lily Hall is a stunning new house in a glorious position in the Ennerdale Valley. Sleeping up to eight people in four gorgeous bedrooms and welcoming up to two dogs, it's a marvelous space to gather the family under one roof for a luxurious western Lake District break. It sits just on the edge of the village of Ennerdale Bridge but is detached enough to feel remote and it also benefits from unparalleled views up the valley. The house is elegantly decorated throughout, making the most of the light and space as well as having countless personal touches to create a welcoming atmosphere that you'll want to visit time and time again.
Guests enter the house from the front. There is a handy utility space with plenty of room for all the muddy boots you might accumulate on your Ennerdale adventures. Through from here the fabulous dining room opens up. There are stunning curved panoramic windows letting in every drop of light for you to enjoy while eating around the large dining table with its comfy upholstered chairs. The door to the front is here and there's more space for shoes and coats. The large welcoming kitchen is next door. It's a beautiful sociable space with light units, rose granite work surfaces and a breakfast table looking through double doors to the lawns and patio. The kitchen is handsomely equipped with a large Rangemaster cooker with gas hobs, dishwasher, washer dryer, microwave, under counter fridge and freezer as well as a large freestanding fridge for extra space. Of course, there is also all the crockery and cookware you'll need for a family gathering.
Moving back through the dining area to the elegant downstairs living room. It's a delightfully comfortable room with two deep sumptuous sofas arranged around a wood burning stove and large curved Smart TV with Sky. The owners have thoughtfully left a well-stocked bookcase with books for all ages, star gazing guides, magazines and games to keep you entertained and there is a lovely writing desk looking up the valley; quite the inspirational spot for postcard writing! Or, if you need to catch up on a bit of work here, there's high speed WiFi to keep you going! There is also a handy downstairs loo just off the living area with drying space for wet bits and bobs.
Ascending to the first-floor guests are greeted by the stunning upstairs living area. Another beautifully designed space, it has a comfy sofa, Smart TV with Sky and an elegant Charles Eames style armchair, which is definitely the seat to commandeer as your own! This, being a second lounge, could be described as a snug but that doesn't quite do it justice! The curved panoramic windows really make the most of the uninterrupted views up to the head of the valley. The owners have left binoculars for you to spot the local wildlife and scan the fell tops. It's also the most stunning room for stargazing in Ennerdale's wonderful dark skies on clear nights. Here, you will also find a games console along with a excellent library of movies and games.
The four elegant bedrooms are all on the first floor and all include John Lewis Natural Collection beds and mattresses, luxury bed linen and professional hairdryers. The master bedroom has wonderful dual aspect views, a gorgeous king size, upholstered bed frame, a hanging rail and dresser for storage and an en-suite shower room. The shower has a large walk-in enclosure with mixer shower and large drencher head. The second bedroom has super-king, upholstered, zip and link bed which can be made up as a twin should you require (please advise on booking). The room has a large wardrobe and chest of drawers, more stunning views up the valley and another beautifully appointed en-suite shower room. The triple room has double under/single over bunk bed and hanging hooks. The top single bed in here isn't usually made up, so if you'd like this for your stay then please let us know. The single room is a magical space for a younger member of the party to commandeer. It has a dresser and a view over the gardens towards the village. The family bathroom is also on the first floor and has a heat-retaining Carronite bath.
Outside the house there is a large enclosed garden with huge lawns for cartwheeling to your heart's content. There's also a south facing patio and outdoor dining furniture benefiting from the fabulous evening sun. Just the job for dining al fresco. Gin & tonic anyone? The front of the property provides the morning sun where coffee and croissants can be enjoyed with the enormity and views of the Lakeland fells right in front of you. Bikes can be stored in a lockable shed, complete with bike station.
There is a large gated driveway for up to 2 cars as well as further parking for 4 cars on the private drive to the side of the property.
