Sykehouse Cottage is a charming 17th century house which has been extended and tastefully renovated. Nestled in the bustling village of Broughton in Furness and sleeping six people in three comfortable bedrooms it benefits from stunning traditional features and a stylish eye for decor making it a gorgeous place from which to explore the southern Lake District.
On arrival at the front of the property guests are greeted by a spacious hallway with a traditional tiled floor and plenty of room for your party's coats and shoes. From here you access the cosy living room; it's a gorgeous space blending traditional features with 20th century furniture pieces and subtle decor. It has been tastefully renovated to incorporate a woodburner on a magnificent slab of local slate with an initial supply of logs provided, a wall mounted TV (with built-in DVD player) and beautiful glass doors through to the sun room flooding the room with light. The owners have thoughtfully left a selection of books and local walking information to keep guests interested. Moving through to this lovely sun room you'll find a settee and dining table and chairs, ideal for sunny morning breakfasts.
A door from the living room leads through to the extension area of the house which houses a modern well equipped kitchen with light units, a built-in fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washer dryer, fan oven and gas hobs. It also has a large antique dining table ideal for post dinner discussions of your Lake District adventures.
Back in the entrance hall is the corner staircase to the first floor. You really get a feel for the character of the building as you ascend the stairs to the large landing with its exposed beams and aged latched wooden door. Here you'll find the three light airy bedrooms. There are two doubles and a twin room. These all benefit from chests of drawers, hanging hooks and stylish modern soft furnishings. The spacious family bathroom is also on this floor, this has a full bath with over bath mixer shower.
Outside there is a delightful gated back garden with patio area which is ideal for opening out the conservatory doors and enjoying sunny evening meals. There's also a raised lawn and mature trees looking out to fields and hillsides beyond.
