Thorntrees is a large detached cottage, with the owners residing separately in the north of the dwelling. It sleeps up to ten guests across five bedrooms and has large areas of outdoor space. It is suitable for children and 2 dogs are also accepted.
A welcoming and comfortable cottage, Thorntrees boasts good sized communal areas. The kitchen, with welcome underfloor heating, is well stocked and features a traditional breakfast table to seat up to eight guests. It has a big electric oven, seven-ring gas hob, a large microwave oven, a huge freestanding fridge-freezer, an additional under-counter fridge, dishwasher and hot water urn for tea in an instant (be careful of the very hot water). The boot room next to the kitchen contains a washing machine and tumble dryer and is ideal for drying muddy gear and dogs after a day in the fells.
The spacious living room stretches from the front to the rear of the cottage and also contains the dining table, which can seat up to 10 guests. An armchair, two two-seater and one three-seater sofas surround a glorious wood burning stove set into a brick hearth. A full bookcase of novels and a Smart TV provide the entertainment, so don't forget to bring your Netflix and Prime logins.
There is one double bedroom (named Dent, after a nearby fell) on the ground floor with an en suite bathroom, featuring a shower, WC, basin and heated towel rail. Perfect for any less-abled members of your party.
The first floor has four bedrooms, all of which have plenty of storage for clothes and belongings and each first floor bedroom has its own TV as well. Like Dent on the ground floor, all bedrooms have been named after local fells. Crag and Pillar are double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms (including a shower, WC and basin) with views over the village to the fells (Crag) and of the fields behind (Pillar); Herdus and Grike both have two adult twin beds, which can be zipped and linked into Super Kingsize beds upon request - Herdus has an en-suite bathroom with a shower, WC, basin and heated towel rail and a view over the fields, while Grike's bathroom is not en-suite, but the nearby family bathrooms contains a bath, shower, WC, basin and heated towel rail.
Outside, guests have access to the acre of field behind the cottage, perfect for dogs and children of all ages to run around and let off some steam. There is also a landscaped garden and paved patio with benches and a picnic table, ideal for those who prefer to sit back and enjoy For those who are keen to explore this area on two wheels, push bikes can be securely stored by the owners. A large gravel driveway allows space for at least six cars to park.
