Plane Trees Cottage is a 17th century, Grade II Listed, traditional farmhouse that has been updated and restored to a high level to create a delightful and charming cottage. Shap is located conveniently just off Junction 39 of the M6 motorway approximately half way between Penrith and Kendal. Nestled snugly between the Lake District and The Yorkshire Dales National Parks, the village is a stone’s throw from either depending on your whim. The Howgills are nearby and Shap offers extensive lesser-known local walks and mountain bike options on its doorstep including Wainwright’s famous Coast-to-Coast walk that passes through the village.
The cottage has been sympathetically renovated and retains exposed beams and window seats along with many other original features but all updated with a lighter, more open and airy decorative style. It has three bedrooms, one with an en suite and walk in shower, and can sleep up to five people.
Downstairs is open plan with leather sofas nestled around a log burner placed in a stunning original feature fireplace. Guests can move easily from the dining table to the fireside with that extra glass of wine.
The village has a number of pubs and a small co-operative shop/ off-licence all within a few hundred metres.
