General description

Aquarius is a charming 1930s detached house sleeping up to five people in the village of Braithwaite. With fresh light decor and modern furnishings it makes an ideal holiday base for a family or friends to make the most of this lovely area.

On arrival at the property guests enter through the front door. Inside there is a shoe rack, coat hooks and plenty of under-stairs space for all the bits and bobs you're likely to accumulate on your Lake District days out. The living/dining room is to your left. It has lovely modern seating arranged around the gorgeous slate fireplace where guests can enjoy a roaring open fire on chilly evenings. There's a TV with DVD player, a dining table and chairs and plenty of books of local interest thoughtfully left by the owner.

Through to the kitchen which has bright modern units, a breakfast table and a lovely outlook to the garden and fell tops. It is well equipped with slimline dishwasher, under-counter fridge (with small freezer compartment), washing machine, microwave, fan oven and ceramic hobs. The bathroom is also downstairs, this has a full sized bath with over-bath electric shower.

The fresh light colour scheme continues upstairs. Firstly to the master bedroom. This has a double bed, a wooden dresser and two built-in cupboards with shelf and hanging space. The views from here are superb, you can see the summits of Latrigg and mighty Skiddaw in the distance. The twin room shares this gorgeous outlook to the rear of the house and has a decorative fireplace and a chest of drawers for storage. The single room looks out to the front of the house and takes in the imposing peak of Grisedale Pike and the edge of Whinlatter Forest. Perfect to inspire you to get out and about with that view as you open your curtains in the morning.

Moving outside there is a lovely garden to the rear. There are gates to both sides of the house so the garden is enclosed however there are some small gaps in the fencing so it's not entirely escape proof! It boasts a lovely long sloping lawn bordered by flower beds with mature trees, shrubs and hedges around. There are even some blackberries about if you are lucky enough to be visiting when they ripen. The raised patio which stretches out from the back door at the kitchen makes a wonderful spot for outdoor dining, especially for breakfast on a sunny morning. Just the ticket!
