Step inside the pale blue front door and you're sure to feel right at home in this welcoming retreat for 8.
With its hooks, the entrance porch is the perfect place for leaving coats and boots before continuing into the spacious hallway, decorated with a fabulous tartan carpet. On your left is the inviting living room; light, bright and airy thanks to the large window to the front, this really is a wonderful space. Choose between the two stylish 3-seater sofas or the matching 2-seater sofa, ideally positioned around the gas-effect fire in the feature original fireplace. There's also a wall mounted TV for entertainment and a quirky sheep footstool for relaxing in style!
Across the hallway is the dining room. The large wooden dining table in here is the ideal meeting point for catching up on the day's events over a hearty, home cooked meal. The tub chair in the corner is the perfect spot to escape to with a good book and the dining room also has a TV so there's no need to fight over the remote! At the back of the cottage is the kitchen. Well equipped with an electric oven and gas hob, fridge-freezer, 4-slice toaster and the ever important kettle. There's also a dishwasher and a useful washing machine should you wish to make use of that during your stay.
Upstairs on the first floor are 2 of the 4 bedrooms, both are doubles. The first double bedroom is bright and spacious; built-in wardrobes and drawers provide plenty of storage and the chair at the window is great for a bit of people watching. The second double bedroom is decorated in calming blue tones - you're sure to feel instantly relaxed in here. This room also has a wardrobe as well as a handy washbasin tucked in the corner.
Also on the first floor is the family bathroom. As well as the WC and washbasin there's also a bath with shower over so all tastes are catereed for her, whether you prefer a long soak in the tub or a reinvigorating shower.
Onwards and upwards to the second floor. Up here you'll find the third double bedroom, another lovely bright room with fantastic views over the rooftops towards Latrigg and Skiddaw beyond. A stylish wardrobe and matching chest of drawers provide plenty of storage and there's also a quirky yellow chair. The fourth bedroom is a lovely twin room. A handy bedside table with cute lamp sits between the 2 single beds. The second floor shower room has a WC, washbasin and modern shower enclosure, perfect for refreshing tired muscles after a day out in the fells.
To the rear of the cottage is a delightful enclosed patio garden. With a wooden bench and bistro style table and 2 chairs, it's a lovey spot, equally suited to a peaceful morning coffee and an evening aperitif. There's also a useful, lockable outbuilding which has a secure line anchored to the floor that bikes can be chained to.
On street parking can be found close by, just a short walk from the cottage.
