General Description

Whitesyke is a charming cottage for four in the stunning setting of Nether Wasdale. Refurbished to a very high standard and boasting period features galore this modern-rustic gem is a perfect base for enjoying the Western Lake district. The owners have elegantly decorated the house with a mixture of comfortable furnishings, high spec appliances and well-chosen local art and photography. Added to this, the underfloor heating and cosy woodburner give Whitesyke a warm and welcoming feel from the moment you arrive.

Guests enter via the back door to the house where they'll find a large and unusually welcoming utility room. There's a comfy bench, Belfast sink, under-counter washing machine and tumble dryer along with plenty of coat hooks, a substantial shoe rack, electric boot dryer and underfloor heating to dry out any muddy walking boots. From the utility room you access the stylish downstairs wet room and WC. There's a gorgeous mixer shower with an added drencher head for a luxurious soak. The utility leads through to the gorgeous open plan living space with well-equipped kitchen, dining area, and living area. 

The modern soft-close kitchen units house a built-in Siemens double oven (the smaller top combi-oven can also act as a grill or microwave), four gas hobs, dishwasher, fridge freezer and all the crockery and cookware you'll need for your stay. There's a breakfast bar dividing the kitchen from the dining area making for sociable meal preparation. The large dining table has a restored church pew and chairs for enjoying long post-dinner chats planning your Lakeland adventures. The other end of this room has a delightful living area with a large comfy sofa (which is also a sofa bed that can accommodate a further two people), a small child’s chair and Parker Knoll-style armchair arranged around a cosy wood burner and Smart TV with DVD player.

Heading upstairs via the open-tread corner staircase guests arrive first at the gorgeous master bedroom. It's a lovely haven with a sloping beamed ceiling, metal framed super-kingsize bed, dresser and midi wardrobe making the most of the available space. A Velux window drenches the room with light while a low-level window makes an ideal outlook while sitting in bed with a morning cuppa. The characterful twin room has offset single beds and a chest of drawers for storage. Also on the first floor is the beautiful family bathroom. Boasting three skylights, a luxurious double ended bath as well as a separate shower enclosure with giant drencher head it's an indulgent space to hide away and soak tired fell-walking muscles.

Outside the house there's plenty of wild space for children to explore not to mention a wonderfully gnarly Yew tree standing guard over the cottage. Dry stone walls border woodland to the rear while a small sloping field stretches out to the front. A large picnic bench is just outside the front door for making the most of all the afternoon and evening sun that Whitesyke enjoys.
