Oakdene is a charming barn conversion, located in the heart of the peaceful village of Motherby which itself is surrounded by beautiful countryside. Inside Oakdene, you'll find delightful accommodation for up to 6 people and 1 lucky dog. On the ground floor is a well equipped kitchen, handy utility room and a cosy living room with wood burner which opens to a lovely dining area. Also on the ground floor is the first of the 2 bathrooms whilst up on the first floor are the 3 lovely bedrooms and a great shower room. As well as all this, Oakdene also has parking for 2 cars and a small garden area to the rear of the cottage.
The small village of Motherby is tucked away from the main hustle and bustle but still easily accessed from the M6 and A66, making it an ideal base from which to explore your surroundings. There are lots of local footpaths and bridleways to take advantage of straight from the front door. Why not walk to the neighbouring villages of Greystoke or Penruddock, where you can enjoy a meal at the pub before heading back. Enjoy a peaceful walk at nearby Eycott Nature Reserve or venture up Great Mell Fell or Little Mell Fell, both of which can be seen from the cottage. The starting point of the wallk is just a 10 minute drive from the cottage. You'll be rewarded after the climb with stunning panoramic views from the summit.
For those with an interest in local history, spend some time exploring the historic houses at Dalemain and Hutton-in-the-Forest before heading to Lowther Castle, an intriguing facade of a bygone era. Head up nearby Askham Fell for stunning views of Ullswater. If you'd prefer to be closer to the water, why not hire a boat or try some wild swimming? You can always hitch a ride on the stately steamer if you'd rather somebody else did the hard work!
