General Description

You enter Little Ground Cottage through the entrance porch which leads into the dining room, a sociable space with a wooden floor and beamed ceiling. There is a large wood burner within the original fireplace, a sofa, and dining table & chairs. An initial supply of fuel is provided for the wood burner and more can be purchased locally. The cottage is semi detached to a private holiday let building.

The large sitting room occupies the barn conversion, which has been carefully integrated as part of the cottage with original oak rafters and tie-beam dating from the 1700s - a charming feature. There is a 40" flat screen TV with a basic Sky package and a Blu-ray player and a double sofa bed (linen provided). The staircase to the first floor leads to a gallery, constructed in Wasdale oak providing a quiet area with a desk and chair. Wifi access is available.

In the kitchen there is a double eye level oven, an induction hob, microwave, dishwasher and a washing machine.

Upstairs there are a king and double size bedrooms. One has fabulous views across the valley to the famous Wastwater Screes. The other has an en suite with a shower, washbasin, heated towel rail and WC.

There is a further bedroom with a single bed and a family bathroom with bath and hand held shower, washbasin, heated towel rail and WC.

Outside is a lawned south facing garden with wonderful views of the Wastwater Screes. There is also a large side patio and a lockable shed, which may be used for storing outdoor gear and bikes (with care due to low stone entrance). Two or three cars can be parked on the driveway.

Dogs are welcome and we ask that they are not left alone in the cottage, or allowed on the furniture or upstairs, and that guests clean up after them including in the garden. The cottage is located next to working farms keeping Herdwick sheep and other livestock, so dogs must always be carefully controlled and kept on a lead. Please note the fields surrounding Little Ground are private. There is access to Nether Wasdale along the farm track.
