Let's round off a fabulous bank holiday weekend with a NEW cottage!
Pet-friendly and sleeping 4 guests, Padern Cottage is found in the pretty West Cumbrian village of Branthwaite and has everything you could possibly want from a self-catering cottage!
The living-dining room is bright and cheerful with beautiful wooden floors, a sandstone fire surround holding a wood burner, and comfy seating for all guests. This room is the first you see when you walk in the door and bodes well for the rest of this luxury property!
Next door, the bijoux kitchen is a delight. Packing plenty into a small space, the layout is clean and tidy with modern open shelving, electric oven and hob, washing machine and fridge-freezer. You'll even enjoy washing the dishes by hand here thanks to the sink that looks out onto the leafy courtyard.
The kitchen leads onto the rear courtyard itself. With ivy-covered walls, outside seating, a BBQ and even a fire pit, we won't blame you for spending all your evenings out here, toasting some delicious food and enjoying sociable chats as you watch the stars come out!
The delights continue upstairs with two bedrooms that are both bright and welcoming and include stripped floorboards, cosy rugs and storage for your clothes. The master bedroom is spacious and also includes a handy dressing table while the second bedroom - a twin - has lovely quirky decor.
The bathroom is on the first floor too and this - like all the other rooms - is bright and spacious with a bath and overhead shower.
Just across the road from the cottage is The Wild Duck, a favourite local pub serving delicious food in generous portions. The cottage is also just 15 minutes away from the pretty market town of Cockermouth, as well as Loweswater and the wider Lake District.
Padern Cottage really is the gift that keeps on giving!
