General Description

Rock How is a charming semi-detached cottage in the much-loved village of Eskdale Green. Stone built and with a wealth of period features, it boasts three well appointed bedrooms, plenty of well thought-through socialising spaces, wonderful gardens and simply glorious views of the surrounding countryside. The owners have provided plenty of thoughtful touches to make the cottage a warm and comfortable haven you’re sure to want to visit again. 

On arrival at the front porch, guests enter into the welcoming tiled hallway where you’ll find a handy payphone. To the right is the delightful traditional living room with two comfy leather sofas arranged around an open fire and a television with Freeview and a DVD player for entertainment. The room is enhanced with some lovely local art and photography to inspire your adventures and a handsome grandfather clock to keep you on time. Back across the hallway you’ll find the stone flagged dining room with its dining set for six and a wonderful window seat to take in the magnificent view. There’s an electric fire to keep you cosy over long post dinner conversations and dressers with a great choice of books to keep you entertained.

In the rear of the house there’s the well-equipped kitchen. In here you’ll find a double oven with ceramic hobs, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, under-counter fridge and space-saver freezer. Lastly on the ground floor is the handy snug. Boasting a further TV with Freeview and DVD player it also has two comfy armchairs and a table football game to keep you amused. It’s a wonderful cosy space to escape and read a book or for teens and tweens to commandeer as their entertainment room.

Heading up the corner staircase past the lovely stained-glass window brings you to the bedrooms and bathroom. First to the gorgeous master bedroom which has a king size wooden bed frame, a wardrobe and dresser for storage, a decorative fireplace and, if you can tear yourself away from the beautiful view, a TV with Freeview. Next to the romantic double bedroom. This light filled room has a metal bedstead, and like the master bedroom, decorative fireplace, a wardrobe, dresser as well as a TV with Freeview. The twin bedroom looks out to the sloping lawn to the back of the house and has a dresser for storage and a TV with Freeview. Lastly to the wonderfully spacious bathroom. In here you’ll find an electric shower in a large enclosure as well as a beautiful Victorian-style clawfoot bath with shower attachment, the ideal place for soaking away tired fell-walking muscles.

The outside space is no less charming than the interior of the cottage. There’s a handy covered area immediately to the rear of the house where you can securely store bikes, a wonderful raised terrace with wooden bench for outdoor dining, alternatively take the stone stairs, hewn from local rock, to the rear garden where there’s a lawn, swing and bird feeders to attract feathery visitors from the forest behind the cottage. The gardens and parking area are enclosed by double five-bar gates. There’s parking space for two cars but please note that the drive is very short but fairly steep and so therefore unsuitable for low wheel-base cars. There is additional parking further up the road (75m from the house).
