Lowthwaite Cottage is a wonderfully cosy, historical gem set at the mouth of St Johns’ in the Vale. It dates back to the 1500s and retains its historical character while giving all the comforts of a 21st century holiday home. The property has exposed mighty beams, traditional windows and throughout the bottom floor there are beautiful flagstone floors.
On entry you’ll find the warm bathroom which has an over bath shower and provides complimentary toiletries. Beyond this there is a well equipped kitchen with built-in oven, halogen hobs, microwave, dishwasher and undercounter fridge. There is a utility room outside which houses a washing machine, tumble drier and freezer.
The main room on the ground floor is the delightful living room with dining area which is a perfect farm cottage room. Boasting a wood burning stove, TV, DVD, CD/radio with i-pod dock, solid wood dresser and sideboard and comfy furnishings.
The staircase leads up from the kitchen to the first floor where you first encounter the delightful master bedroom which has a king size bed, wardrobe and dresser. Through the charming traditional windows you have a glorious view across the valley to Skiddaw, England’s fourth highest mountain. The twin room is similarly decorated, with lovely exposed joists and views over the garden.
Outside there is a large orchard style garden with fruit trees with plenty of places to eat outside on sunny days as well as several quiet seating areas to sit and enjoy the majestic views and the sound of the tiny stream running through the garden.
