A warm welcome to Lloyd Cottage, a wonderful country-style retreat for up to 8 people in the Lowther Valley village of Hackthorpe.
The well equipped farmhouse-style kitchen is a real heart of this home from home. The cooks in the group will love the electric range-style oven, set in a feature former fireplace, there's also a handy microwave, fridge-freezer and lovely Belfast sink overlooking the rear garden. Early risers can enjoy a peaceful breakfast at the 4-seater table in the kitchen before everyone else is up, or pull up a chair and keep the cook company.
Continue through to the living room, both spacious and cosy thanks to the large wood burner. There are two 3-seater sofas and a cute 2-seater love seat, perfectly positioned around the wood burning stove for relaxing evenings in in front of the fire. There's a TV for entertainment or curl up on the quant window seat, the idea place for catching up with a good book. Gather round the 8-seater wooden table in the dining room and catch up on the day's events over a hearty home cooked meal, or spread out your maps and guide books and plan tomorrow's.
Also on the ground floor is a handy utility room that's ideal for storing wet coats and boots. In here you'll also find the washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as a fantastic shower room. With a WC, washbasin and large shower enclosure, it's perfect for reinvigorating tired muscles after a day in the fells.
Onwards and upwards to the first floor, where you'll find the 4 bedrooms and the cottage's second bathroom. First up is the fabulous master bedroom, with a king size bed perfect for indulging in a long lie in - you are on holiday after all! This room also has a wardrobe and a useful dresser. The double bedroom is no less lovely and a useful built-in wardrobe provides plenty of storage. The further 2 bedrooms are both twin rooms, one has a handy chest of drawers the other is a cosier room, built into the eaves.
The first floor bathroom is a real treat! As well as the expected WC and washbasin, there's a fantastic modern shower enclosure and luxurious free-standing slipper bath that's oh so inviting.
Outside to the front of the cottage is parking for 2-3 cars (please take care when parking as the turning into the drive is quite tight and there is a low wall on the roadside), whilst at the rear of the cottage is a delightful terrace garden. With a raised patio area and rattan furniture set, it's a lovely spot for dining al fresco.
