General Description

The Nook is a wonderfully quaint cottage set in the peaceful village of Stainton just west of Penrith right on the eastern side of the Lake District National Park. It has bags of character with thick walls, exposed beams and log burning stoves while having a thoughtful fresh feel to its decor throughout.

On arrival at The Nook you access the property by going through an archway leading to the garden at the rear of the house. Here you'll go in through a lovely porch (which is so much more than a porch). Not only does it have ample space for coats and muddy boots, it also has a table and two chairs, ideal for having a morning cuppa and taking in the beautiful view across the rolling fields.

Inside the house to your right you'll find the charming living room and dining area. This is a beautiful light room having two windows deep set in to the thick cottage walls, a large exposed ceiling beam and a wonderful old fireplace with a cosy log burner. The room has a dining table for six people and deep comfy sofas for lounging away your evenings. There is a television with Freeview, a Blue-ray player and a large selection of discs. The owner has also thoughtfully provided a charming collection of vintage pelican books. If any room is the place to imagine yourself in a vintage novel, this is it. The huge deep fireplace houses a lovely log burner why not curl up on one of those gorgeous sofas and lose yourself in one of those books? Bliss!

Tear yourself away from the lovely living room to head across the hall to the equally characterful kitchen. This has an exposed sandstone wall and fireplace housing another log burning stove. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, a large traditional larder, microwave, electric oven and halogen hobs, fridge and freezer. It also has a breakfast table and wicker armchair for sociable meal preparation or just for taking in the lovely view from the window looking out over the garden to the fields beyond.

Heading upstairs there are three wonderfully warm and welcoming bedrooms. All have a stylish and fresh feel about them. The spacious master bedroom has an iron framed king size bed, a wonderful vantage point for having a morning cuppa in bed with a stunning view. The two twin rooms are lovely, one with a blue theme the other pink. The bathroom has an over-bath shower and a bath for soaking away any muscle aches after long Lakeland walks. Please note the jacuzzi function is not currently available.

Outside the garden has a wonderful far reaching view over fields. Please note there is shared access through the garden to the cottage next door. The garden is enclosed and spacious with plenty of room for outdoor dining and a lovely bench for a sunset glass of wine.
