General Description

The side door entrance leads from a large covered porch into the hallway. Off the hallway is the main bathroom with a bath and shower over, WC, washbasin and heated towel rail. Along the hallway a door leads to the inner room with a table, seating, and a well-stocked set of bookshelves - ideal for studying maps and planning adventures!

Off this room is the super king sized bedroom that can be made up as twin beds upon request and includes a dressing table and a full wardrobe with drawers. A further door off the hallway leads into the large, well-lit dining kitchen with an electric oven and induction hob, microwave, dishwasher and a large integrated fridge and separate integrated freezer. The dining area has an extending table (can seat up to 10) and dual aspect windows offering superb views across the fields to the fells, perfect for watching the local wildlife (binoculars provided).

The sitting room has an open fire with the initial supply of fuel provided. Large picture windows with superb views dominate the room and there is a large television with all Freesat channels, internet-based catch-up TV services, and a DVD player. There are three sofas (two 2-seaters and a 3-seater). A door leads into the rear garden.

On the first floor, the large windows on the landing have been put to good use, with tall stools to watch the wildlife outside. The large master bedroom has a super king size bed that can be made into twin beds on request. There is also a chest of drawers and a small wardrobe. A further twin bedroom has feature beams and fell views from the window. The twin beds are low and suitable for children but equally suitable for adults as they are full size. This room has built-in hanging storage and a chest of drawers. The shower room with W.C. and washbasin is off the landing. There are retractable stairgates at the top and bottom of the stairs.

The garden is fully enclosed, with a side-gate to isolate the rear garden. This includes a lawn, established plants, a slate patio with a wooden dining table and pergola, great views of the fells and the steam railway and a very popular bird table! A useful utility room is equipped with a sink, washing machine, tumble dryer and hanging space for drying clothes. There is also an extra W.C. adjoining. Part of the garage is available for guest use with a bike rack and an open wardrobe with shelves for other outdoor equipment.

Please note that the owners can offer short breaks Friday to Monday in the low season months of December, January and February at £300 (excluding Christmas, New Year and Easter).
