Let's get excited for a brand new holiday cottage: Park House in Skirwith!
Once the laundry of a grand home, Park House has been beautifully converted and now welcomes eight guests and two dogs. It's a spacious pet-friendly pad surrounded by parkland and rolling hills.
Arrival at the house is spectacular: you head up a long driveway, past an avenue of trees until you park up outside the lovely sandstone building. Unload your bags and prepared to be charmed by every room!
Enter the hallway to begin with: exposed sandstone walls, tiled floors and a beautiful staircase really make an impact. The house is upside down, so the main living areas are upstairs.
The lounge is ginormous, with spectacular wooden beams, lots of squishy leather sofas, chunky furniture, and a crackling wood burner in a beautiful fireplace.
The kitchen-diner, too, has space to spare. Neutrally decorated, it's a bright room that has all you could need for social meals. The kitchen is fully-equipped with electric hob and dishwasher amongst its many facilities, while the dining are has a table with plenty of space to seat eight.
There are also two bedrooms up on the first floor. The master bedroom is breathtaking with a king-size bed, exposed roof beams, pastoral views, and an en suite shower room. The second bedroom also boasts a king-size bed and an en suite with bath and hand-held shower.
Downstairs you'll find even more space in the form of two bedrooms and a bathroom. Both bedrooms include king-size beds that can be unzipped to create twin bedrooms instead, so you have plenty of flexibility for your group's needs.
The downstairs bathroom is delightfully modern with its free-standing bath and large separate shower.
And we're not done yet! Exploring outside, you will find a private lawned garden with outside seating, patio, and a couple of trees to shelter under on those hot days. There's also a large walled courtyard and views over the Pennines.
Park House is available now for short breaks and week-long holidays.
