General Description

On arrival at the cottage guests enter directly into the light, open-feeling dining room. There's a dining set for four, a decorative sandstone fireplace and a delightful window seat overlooking the River Mite which tumbles past near the cottage. It has bags of space for coats and boots in the under-stairs cupboard too. The modern kitchen is beyond the dining area, it's well equipped with built-in fan oven, five gas hobs, a microwave and large integral fridge freezer. There's also an under-counter dishwasher, and washer/dryer. The owner has thoughtfully left a selection of cookbooks to give you some culinary ideas during your stay.

Head up the steep staircase to the first floor bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king-size wooden bed frame, a charming window seat and built-in wardrobes. Onwards to the delightful dual-aspect twin bedroom, this has views towards Muncaster Fell and down to the playground and River Mite. The room has zip and link beds which can be made up as a super-king should you require. (Please advise on booking how you would like the room to be made up) The spacious family bathroom has a WC, pedestal sink and an over-bath electric shower with power booster, perfect for soaking away tired muscles from fell walks. There is further storage available in the landing cupboards.

Outside the cottage there is a substantial shared garden with a play area for children. There is also a delightful terrace to the side of the house with dining furniture for outdoor meals or just for enjoying a cuppa or glass of wine taking in Mite Villa's wonderful setting.
