General Description

Riverside Cottage is accessed via the a path along the side of the cottage. The entrance door opens into a small hallway, off which is the kitchen/diner.

The contemporary kitchen has patio doors opening onto the veranda, a lovely place to sit out and enjoy the impressive ravine on the edge of Whinlatter Forest. The kitchen is well equipped with electric cooker and electric hob, fridge/freezer, slimline dishwasher, washer/drier, table and chairs and wall mounted TV.

There is a separate sitting room, also with patio doors to the veranda, which has comfortable seating, a TV and DVD player and a cosy woodburner (initial supply of fuel provided).Outside on the veranda there is a barrier all the way round, please note there is a steep drop to the garden and children should be supervised at all times.

Stairs from the living room lead to the first floor with a double bedroom overlooking the forest and river at the rear. Adjacent to the bedroom is the newly fitted bathroom with a velux window and bath with rain head shower over, WC and washbasin.Further stairs lead to the twin bedroom which benefits from large Velux windows that fill the room with light and offer superb views to the forest. Please note there is restricted head room above the beds.

Outside there are steps down to the garden which overlooks the river and forest . Please note that although very picturesque there is an unfenced drop to the river. Also the river is often fast flowing and may not be suitable for younger children. The veranda provides a lovely sitting out area where you can enjoy the secluded setting and watch the local wildlife and there is a further lower sitting out level with wooden table and bench. There are views through the trees to the Skiddaw range. There is a wood store in the garden and you can also lock your bikes away in here should you need to. Private parking for two cars is on the gravelled area by the cottage.
