Redecorated throughout in December 2017, The Screes is a cosy ground floor apartment for up to four people within a development of holiday cottages. It is set in one of the most tranquil and beautiful areas of the Lake District and boasts stunning views of the surrounding fells.
On arrival at the property guests are greeted by a hallway with local blue slate flooring and plenty of space for the coats and muddy boots you'll be sure to get on your Lake District adventures. From the hall you turn left into the open plan living area.
Here you'll also find the dining table and the kitchen area. The kitchen is equipped with an under-counter fan oven, microwave, fridge freezer, washer/dryer and all the crockery and utensils you're likely to need for your stay. There is a worktop facing the living and dining area making this a lovely sociable space for food preparation. Guests can snuggle up on one of the two comfy sofas and enjoy the flat screen TV, DVD player with selection of discs and stereo alternatively why not make use of the selection of games and books thoughtfully provided by the owners.
Moving on to the bedrooms, you first arrive at the double room. This is a beautiful light space with two sash windows set into its deep walls offering glorious views out to the fells. Primarily of course to The Screes from which the cottage gets its name. The room has a built-in wardrobe and a dressing table and is a gorgeous place to enjoy a morning cuppa looking out on those views. The twin room also enjoys that wonderful outlook and has a wardrobe and dressing table.
The shower room is a bright fresh space with a modern suite incorporating a spacious shower enclosure with a mixer shower and a large drencher head.
Outside, the cottage benefits from a lovely shared garden area. As this space is shared with other residents please make sure dogs are kept on leads and pick up after them. There is wonderful stone seating where you can enjoy the morning sunshine picking out the mighty crags on Buckbarrow to the rear of the house, where you might spot rock climbers winding their way up. Alternatively you might catch the evening sun casting its light on the mighty Screes to the front. What a magnificent place to enjoy an evening glass of wine!
"The cottage was nice and warm, the beds were very comfortable and the views where superb. It was a perfect place to walk the high and some of the lower fells, very tranquil... just what we wanted. Would recommend this cottage to anyone who likes the views, tranquility and walking."
