Sale Fell is a stunning period house set in glorious grounds with lake and fell views. It offers flexible accommodation for between 4 and 6 people in two beautifully appointed bedrooms (there is also a sofabed in the living room for which guests can request bedding to be left). Visitors will find it a calm and indulgent hideaway from the stresses and strains of modern life.
Forming part of a beautiful Victorian House, once the country seat of the Inglewood family, the owner has retained all of its rich historic character while creating an elegant space with comfortable furnishings, modern appliances and subtle decor with nods to the building's Arts and Crafts heritage. It's also a wonderfully welcoming cottage with charming touches of family and local history all around.
On arrival at the house guests are greeted by a handsome wooden door leading into a stone flagged porch. There's plenty of space in here for coats and all the muddy boots you're sure to accumulate on your Lake District adventures. The gorgeous stone flags continue through the panneled hallway where you first come to the beautiful living room. Spacious and light filled it boasts a large bay window with glorious views to Sale Fell itself, a woodburner, a TV with DVD player and two deep comfy sofas with elegant soft furnishings. One of the sofas doubles up as a sofabed. Should your party require bedding for the sofa bed to be left out please advise us on booking. In all it's a wonderfully comfortable space to gather and discuss your holidays. Also along the main corridor is a handy downstairs WC.
Moving through to the lovely bright kitchen. It has been completely refurbished and well equipped with light modern units, a fan oven, ceramic hobs, dishwasher and all the crockery, glass and cookware you will need for your stay. Housed in a large utility cupboard at the kitchen door is the fridge, freezer and microwave. The owner has made the most of the gorgeous wooden floorboards and chosen complimentary furnishings including a large dining table and charming dresser.
Beyond the kitchen is the delightful sun room. There are two comfy armchairs, bookshelves and a huge map to help guests plan their days. This is a wonderful room to relax and enjoy a book on a rainy afternoon or an evening nightcap. There is also a washing machine and tumble drier housed in here.
Back into the main hallway you'll find a rather wonderful under-stairs space with a desk and bookshelves where some eagle eyed little ones might find some toys too. Leading up to the first floor is the handsome wooden staircase. With the kind of room proportions the Victorians did so well the staircase and landing has a lovely grand feel about it.
The first of the bedrooms you come to is a beautiful twin/ triple room. It is usually made up as a twin room however the beds can be linked together to make a super-kingsize bed if you would rather. Added to this there is a single trundle bed which can be put out to make the room a triple for families. Please advise on booking how you would like the room to be configured. The room has a large wardrobe and stunning views to Bassenthwaite and the fells beyond. The master bedroom is a stunning space with a king-size wooden bedframe, a mirrored wardrobe and stunning views. The large glass door leads out on to a glorious balcony with a low white balustrade (care must be taken that children do not come out here unsupervised). The views from here are simply stunning and the owner has thoughtfully provided two chairs for you to sit and enjoy the panorama of lake and fells. Bassenthwaite Lake is home to a pair of breeding ospreys so guests can postition themselves with binoculars to catch a glimpse of these magnificent creatures in the period they nest here between spring and autumn. Alternatively you really couldn't wish for a more romantic spot to take in a sunset or enjoy a morning cuppa. The bathroom has been refurbished to a very high standard making it a wonderful light room with light tiles and decor, a substantial vanity unit and a large bath with over-bath electric shower.
The gardens are an absolute joy here. Guests at the cottage have their own private area including a long slim lawn bordered by mature hedges, a large gravelled area and a wilder woodland area where your little forest sprites can explore. (Please bear in mind the tree house and rope swing have been built for the owner's grandchildren who are happy for guests to share their magical little world but parents must decide if they are appropriate for their children and they must be supervised at all times.) There are also extensive grounds which are shared with the adjoining properties. This area includes formal manicured gardens with wonderful mature trees and a way down to the boat landings through the Bassenthwaite Lakeside Lodges park. In all this peaceful hideaway will enchant visitors of all ages.
