New Cottage: Browside

Published:

You wait for one new cottage with a hot tub and two turn up at once!

Browside near Coniston, the Lake DistrictLast week we had Underwood and this week we have BROWSIDE!

Kitchen at Browside near ConistonLocated next door to the aforementioned Underwood and with the same owners, Browside is very similar but on a much bigger scale! Here we have six bedrooms (it can sleep 14), six bathrooms and two dishwashers - now you're being spoiled!

Dining room view at Browside near ConistonAgain, the accommodation is all one level (accessed via four slate steps). There's a farmhouse kitchen with breakfast table and AGA (available to use for free Nov-March but £30 per week any other time); a spacious living room with wood burner; and a great dining room with huge windows - talk about dinner with a view!

Bedroom at Browside near ConistonOnwards to the sleeping accommodation: here goes... There's a king size with en suite shower room, two double bedrooms with their own en suite shower rooms, a twin room with en suite shower room and two family bedrooms: the first has a king size bed and a single and its own en suite shower room, whilst the second has a double bed and a single bed. No en suite for the latter family bedroom but don't worry, there's a great family bathroom to make use of. Phew, I think a lie down after that...

Hot tub at Browside near ConistonOutside to the pièce de résistance: that fabulous hot tub! There's a patio area with garden furniture here: you'll have to take it in turns to be the nominated drink and snack fetcher, 'cos I know I wouldn't want to move from this amazing spot! Dogs (you can bring two) and children alike will love the enclosed garden area, though it is over different levels so probably worth keeping an eye on young children. There are plenty of seating areas dotted around for this, though!

Browside is available from January 2021. I know where I'll be escaping to next year...
