Turner How Cottage is a marvellous hideaway sleeping up to ten people and three well behaved dogs in an area of staggering natural beauty. While retaining many of the features of the 18th century barn from which it was converted, this wonderfully quirky cottage has been brought right into the 21st century with delightful decor, modern appliances and cosy furnishings.
If you can tear yourself away from the stunning fell views outside Turner How Cottage on arrival then the entrance takes you into a large porch and boot room. From this room there is a door to a handy downstairs loo room and a small staircase to the 'pooch's pad', a fantastic indoor room with split stable style door which will make a perfect bedroom for any four legged members of your party. Downstairs from the boot room you will find the former garage which now acts as a utility area and pool room. Boasting a full size pool table this is the perfect place for the family to while away a spot of time on rainy days. In the garage there is a washing machine and dryer available for guest use.
Onwards into the delightfully warm and welcoming living area. This is a beautiful open plan room with deep comfy sofas, TV and DVD player, and a wood burning stove around which to regale each other with tales of your Lake District days or thrash the family at board games! A couple of steps take you up to the spacious and modern kitchen/diner. It is extremely well equipped with a large American style fridge freezer, microwave, range cooker, dishwasher and just about everything the chefs among you should need. For coffee fans there is even a Nespresso machine.
From the open plan living area you access the upstairs bedrooms, the first of these is the kingsize bedroom, followed by the two twin bedrooms. All of these are delightfully decorated, the beds sporting gorgeous cosy throws but more than this they have fantastic views of the surrounding countryside and fells, the perfect place to enjoy morning coffee in bed. Fabulous. At the end of the upstairs hallway is the lovely modern main bathroom. This has a 'd' bath with over-bath shower and a small airing cupboard.
Through from the living area is the beautiful light orangery, a great place to curl up and enjoy a book or alternatively from here you get to appreciate the cottage's garden and its fantastic array of garden visitors, from nuthatches, woodpeckers and yellow hammers to the occasional red squirrel to name but a few!
The Orangery leads through to a cosy little snug with a sofa and a small TV for the children to enjoy a DVD, however what makes this room even more special is that it is built on Turner How Rock, a substantial chunk of which shows itself in the corner, in fact it might better be described as The Rock Room. Through from here are the two lovely downstairs bedrooms, one with a kingsize and one with a double bed. Beyond these lies the shower room, once again it's a gorgeous modern space with a large walk in shower enclosure.
Outside the garden offers two patios and absolutely stunning views of the surrounding fells from all angles. There are plenty of nooks to enjoy a sunrise cuppa or a sunset glass of wine. Aside from this there is a lovely wild area with wonderful displays of wild flowers in spring and summer and a lonning around the bottom of the property which is an incredibly handy gated area to exercise dogs if you aren't undertaking a bigger stretch of the legs.
In all it's a fantastic house jam packed with character for a family gathering or group of friends to make the most of this fabulous area.
