General Description

Built more than 150 years ago, Routen House has been extensively refurbished and redecorated over the past few years. Spacious and sleeping 12 (plus cot) it is ideal for large family gatherings or for parties of walkers and friends.

The large farmhouse kitchen is well equipped, with microwave, fridge, electric oven, gas hob and dishwasher.

Next door the utility room is the perfect place to leave muddy boots after a long walk. There is also a washing machine and tumble drier, as well as an extra fridge, freezer and separate toilet.

Beyond the kitchen is the dining room, furnished with antiques and a long table suitable for gracious dining as well as a quick takeaway from the nearby town of Cockermouth.

There are two sitting rooms equiped with TVs (one freeview and one basic package Sky) and a DVD player. The second lounge has patio windows, which allow superb uninterrupted views of the fells and countryside. The patio itself is the ideal place for barbeques or just to unwind with a drink.

Upstairs on the first floor there is one double room and three twin rooms, all sharing a family sized bathroom with an electric shower above the bath. For groups with families, kids love to take over this floor, leaving the adults to enjoy the second floor with its two ensuite double rooms (the ensuites both have a bath with shower above it).

The garden outside is ideal for children to play in. Pets are welcome and there is ample parking.
