Upper House at Lord's Seat has been beautifully laid out to take full advantage of the breathtaking views which have to be seen to be believed.
You enter the cottage from the same level as the car park into the porch area, an ideal space to remove any outdoor clothing before entering the main living areas. The shower room is accessed directly from within the porch area.
From the porch is the open plan dining and living room. The dining table comfortably seats six and is well positioned to enjoy the wood burning stove in the evening, perhaps whilst playing board games. The lounge has everything you would need to enjoy a relaxing break away, a flat screen TV with freeview, DVD/VHS player, stereo and CD player, books, board games and maps. The seating has been cleverly located to take advantage not only of the wood burning stove but also some of the most breathtaking views the Lake District has to offer. On a clear day you can see into The Jaws of Borrowdale and sometimes as far as the western fells; those with a keen eye might even be able to pick out Scafell Pike!
Next to the lounge is the very well equipped kitchen. There is an electric hob and oven with grill, a dishwasher, washing machine, undercounter fridge, undercounter freezer and microwave.
Just off the lounge area there is a door which takes you on to the balcony; this is ideal for sitting outside with your morning coffee whilst planning your day's walking, taking those stunning views as your inspiration.
There is a double bedroom on the ground floor as well as a bathroom which has a shower over the bath and grab rails, a WC and wash basin. There is a separate WC on this floor also.
Stairs lead you to the first floor which has a walkway between the eaves of the cottage; this looks down on to the living areas and has handy in-built storage cupboards. At either end of the walkway are two twin bedrooms which benefit from large velux windows. These make the rooms light and airy (and, again, offer stunning views!) as well as containing black out blinds if those early mornings aren't quite your thing.
As well as the balcony, there is an outside seating area in the middle of the garden for the sole use of Upper House guests. To reach it you descend 20 steps and then a small walkway, leading you to the sheltered decking which takes in those dramatic views - an ideal spot for an evening G&T after a long day on the fells!
Bike storage is available at Upper House, this is also shared with Lower House and can be booked on a first come, first served basis. You do need to bring your lock for the bike storage, this has a standard padlock type latch.
