Bendale is a light and bright yet cosy well laid out property perfect for two people. The cottage forms an extension to the owner's farmhouse but is very private with windows overlooking the gardens and yard. This is part of a traditional family farm and although the cottage itself is not a historic building the stone barn opposite contains repurposed roman stone to balance it out!
From the parking area behind the stone barn step up through the gate into an enclosed paved patio area and in through the French doors to the spacious living room/kitchen.
This attractive room is dual aspect with a window onto the yard plus the French doors overlooking the patio and rural views beyond, perfect for summer evenings. A 2-seat sofa plus a chair with footstool invite you to kick back and relax in front of the electric stove; flick a switch and you have instant extra cosiness for nights in. A coffee table awaits a cuppa or a favourite tipple whilst the Freeview TV and DVD player provides your entertainment should you so wish. A wide selection of DVD's is housed on a bookshelf and there is free WIFI. You will also find a welcome gift of wine and chocolates to kick start that holiday feeling.
The kitchen is at the back of the room with a breakfast bar dividing it off from the living area. The two stools behind the breakfast bar face out to the French doors so you can take in the views across the fields whilst enjoying a relaxing breakfast. The oven and hob are electric and there is also a microwave and integrated fridge in this smart and well-equipped kitchen with tiled floor and splashback.
On the right of the main living room is a door leading into a spacious dual aspect bedroom, wake up to nothing but bird song with lovely views of the garden and across the fields to the Lorton fells. The king size bed is accessorized with lamps on the headboard and bedside tables, solid wood wardrobe and chest of drawers provide ample storage. A chair and mirror complete the furniture in this cosy welcoming room.
Behind the kitchen area is a door to the left into the shower room with a tiled floor and plenty of space for carrying out your ablutions.
Outside the French doors is a private enclosed patio area with table and chairs surrounded by colourful planters full of flowers. The views are beautiful looking across pasture fields to the Lorton Fells beyond and Skiddaw hiding shyly behind the trees. Guests are also welcome to use the farmhouse garden behind the cottage which is beautifully kept by the owner.
