Verger's Cottage is a gorgeous Victorian house just a short potter from the centre of Keswick. Converted from a former Library it's blessed with plenty of character, three delightful bedrooms, beautifully appointed living spaces and modern high spec fittings making it a wonderful town-centre base for your Lakeland adventures. The owners have used sumptuous soft furnishings, inspiring local and vintage photography and a subtle palette of colours to create a warm and welcoming holiday home.
On arrival at the house you're greeted by a charming porch which leads into the dining room. There's a substantial dining table and chairs, a large map and plenty of local books for planning your days out and the most lovely tiny desk set into an alcove. Moving through to the living room guests will find it an elegant space to relax with exposed floorboards, a richly coloured rug, two deep comfy sofas and a long ottoman bench arranged around a wood burning stove. There's a Smart TV with a full Sky Sports package and DVD player as well as a Bose sound dock to keep you entertained and a large window for watching the world go by.
Next to the modern well-equipped kitchen which has a built-in fan oven, four gas hobs, dishwasher, microwave and all the crockery and cookware you'll need for your stay. Beyond the kitchen is a handy utility area with a sink, washer/dryer and plenty of space for coats and muddy boots as well a lovely downstairs shower room with mixer shower and WC.
Moving up to the first floor there's a mid-staircase landing where you'll find the indulgent main shower room. It has a contemporary feel about it with slate-effect tiles, large walk-in-style shower area with mixer shower and huge drencher head. You access the three lovely bedrooms from the next landing. The master bedroom has a king size bed with wooden bedframe, a "tallboy" style wardrobe with hanging space and drawers, a decorative fireplace along with a delightful window seat and an elegant armchair for relaxing or enjoying a good book. The double bedroom has a distinctive metal bedstead set into an alcove, another tallboy wardrobe, its own decorative fireplace and a view to the church spire across the way. Lastly to the charming twin bedroom, this has two metal bedsteads, a wardrobe for storage and a view over the town's rooftops to Skiddaw in the distance.
To the front of the cottage is a gravelled area with a stone bench, perfect for watching the world go by with your morning cuppa. At the back of the cottage you'll find the enclosed, stone flagged patio. With distinctive quirky signs and outdoor furniture, this is ideal for enjoying a spot of al fresco dining.
