General Description

Pottery Cottage is a practical and beautifully presented little house in a quiet village; this cottage has a lovely atmosphere and is a real home from home. Attached to the owners' house, it is surrounded by lovely shared grounds for you to enjoy. The house and its pottery were built in the grounds of the 'Old Rectory' when it was sold off by the church and what was the pottery now forms this charming holiday cottage.

The front door to Pottery Cottage is sheltered under a covered porch and leads into a carpeted hallway with coat hooks and boot storage, perfectly laid out for coming home after a lovely day out.

Straight ahead across the hall the smart kitchen is well equipped with everything you could need for eating in, no matter what your style. Alongside plenty of storage for supplies there is a fridge-freezer, microwave, liquidiser, electric oven, and gas hob plus a washing machine & dishwasher; look out for a welcome gift of biscuits, tea and coffee on the worktop too!

Continuing on down the hall you reach the lovely bright living/dining room. Beautifully laid out and perfectly presented, this room cannot fail to make you feel instantly at home; Lake District photos on the walls and views over the fields bring the outside in through dual aspect windows and a door leads out onto the raised patio. A dining table with 4 chairs sits at one side of the room and a well stocked shelving unit in the corner holds a range of novels, reference books, magazines and tourist information plus a music centre with cd-player, I-pod dock and MP3. Two 2-seater sofas and two chairs demarcate the living area, which is light and bright during the day and cosy in the evening. Plenty of DVDs are supplied to watch on the tv which also has Freeview and side tables are easily accessed for the all important cup of tea or a favourite tipple. This is a comfortable and homely room, a lovely space to spend time relaxing and making the most of your down time.

At the top of the stairs is a spacious, light bedroom with king size bed and lots of storage in the form of a built in cupboard containing shelves and hanging space. The chest of drawers has a handy mirror over and the bedside tables hold lamps and a radio alarm clock. There are more lovely photos on the wall but look out of the window for an equally lovely scene looking over the village to fields beyond and the distinctive mass of Blencathra peaking over the horizon; perfect to enjoy with morning cup of tea in bed for a truly relaxing start to the day.

The family bathroom is located between the 2 bedrooms and contains a bath with shower over.

The second bedroom is a lovely dual aspect twin room with bedside table, storage with hanging space and chest of drawers with mirror over. The windows offer lovely views over the countryside without even getting out of bed!

Heading outside from the living room there is a lovely raised patio with table and chairs enjoying the full benefit of the lovely views and sun all day. Take a seat, listen to the peace and quiet and unwind; a perfect spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner al fresco too. The garden is open to the owners part adjacent but you have exclusive use of this patio and the side garden which contains further seating areas and a large lawned area. If you have taken advantage of the washing machine then you can get the fresh air feel and dry clothes on the washing line in the garden or there is a covered drying area in the garage.

Pottery Cottage is a lovely little property, perfectly formed to ensure your holiday is relaxed and simple. A home from home you will not want to leave but when you do tear yourself away there is plenty to do in the surrounding area whatever your interests.
