General Description

Owl's Roost is a beautiful perch from which to enjoy a northern Lake District break. This spacious comfortable cottage sleeping up to four people is ideally placed to make the most of this stunning area.

On arrival at the cottage you have an entrance hall from which there is a drying room with plenty of room for coats and muddy boots, and a laundry with washer and dryer. There's also a handy downstairs loo off the hall. The staircase then leads up to the light modern kitchen. This room has an airy gallery feel about it as it has stylish lighting and several windows looking out on to the garden and surrounding woods. It's very well equipped with dishwasher, microwave, fan oven and induction hobs.

The light, spacious living-dining room is a delight. This room is blessed with a huge window opening up a stunning panorama over the lovely garden towards the fells of Skiddaw and Binsey, as well as beautiful Bassenthwaite Lake. Whatever the weather, this magnificent view has something to offer. The room has fresh, thoughtful decor with local artwork, a large oak dining table, a comfy sofa with two armchairs and a cosy log burning stove. There is a large television with Freeview along with a DVD and VHS player. The owner has thoughtfully left a selection of discs and tapes as well as board games to while away evenings. That said, you might be perfectly well entertained with the stunning view: it's certainly hard to tear yourself away!

Off this room are the two beautifully furnished bedrooms. The main bedroom has a king size bed and the second has a superking bed which can be made up as twins if that's preferable. The calm, light colour scheme continues through both rooms with some lovely examples of local artwork on the walls and both rooms look out on to the trees around the driveway. As the owner has put bird feed, nest boxes and of course an owl box here the visiting bird life is varied and you can sit and enjoy a cuppa in bed in either room watching the comings and goings of the feathered visitors.

Outside the enclosed garden is a lovely spot for outdoor dining. Catching the morning sun, it has mature trees and shrubs and once again is blessed with many birds visiting. It, of course, has that majestic view over to Skiddaw which makes it a wonderful place to enjoy a glass of wine as the sunset light lands on the mountains. 

Fancy a game of table tennis? A games room is set up in one of the garages outside your front door. The remote hanging up inside the hallway makes it easy to open up. Have fun!
