General Description

Welcome to Post Lady Cottage, a charming Lakeland cottage in the peaceful village of Backbarrow.

Through the entrance porch with its useful coat hooks and slate flooring, is the cosy living room. The 2-seater sofa and 2 armchairs are perfectly positioned around the wood burning stove, prefect for relaxing evening in in front of the fire. There's a TV in here for entertainment too. The modern country-style kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge-freezer, washing machine and handy microwave. At the back of the cottage is the lovely dining room, which has feature bi-fold doors to garden. The wooden dining table is the perfect place to gather round and enjoy a home cooked meal whilst comparing notes on the day's adventures - or planning tomorrow's!

Carpeted stairs lead from the living room up to the first floor, where you'll find the 2 beautiful bedrooms. The spacious master bedroom has a wooden kingsize bed, perfect for indulging in a long lie in. This room is lovely and bright thanks to its 2 windows. There's also a quant dressing table and chair tucked in one corner, painted wardrobe for storage and an original feature fireplace. The second bedroom, a twin, is just as lovely as the first; a painted wooden wardrobe provides useful storage and there's a lovely view over the garden. This room can also be made up as a kingsize upon request.

Also on the first floor is the family bathroom, hidden behind a sliding door on the landing. In here you'll find a WC, washbasin and bath with shower over.

To the front of Post Lady Cottage there is parking for 2 cars as well as a little seating area, ideal for watching the world go by, and to the rear of this charming cottage is a fantastic tiered garden. Off the dining room is a wonderful decked patio area. There's a table and chairs, wall mounted heater and lighting making this a great spot to enjoy some al fresco dining. Steps lead up to a further area of the garden which is covered in astroturf and has stylish pod seating, perfect for relaxing with a good book. There's also a pretty flower garden, a further grassed area that has an apple and a plum tree, and another decked area that has lovely views of the surrounding countryside. A steel bike cable with padlock is also provided for storing bikes if you fancy getting out and about on 2 wheels for a change.
