Attractive cottage sleeping two guests, a period property given a stylish contemporary update to create a relaxing retreat just one mile outside the medieval village of Cartmel.
This property enjoys a tranquil rural location overlooking Cartmel Race Course and enjoying a beautiful view down the valley from the front of the house. Only one mile away, Cartmel village is one of the region’s best-loved villages, offering a fantastic array of highly-regarded restaurants and pubs which has made it somewhat of a destination for keen foodies. 6.5 miles north of the property, the village of Lakeside sits on the southern shore of Lake Windermere, from where visitors can take a ferry to nearby Fell Foot, or enjoy a longer cruise to Waterhead or Bowness. It is also the terminus point for the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, a steam railway which runs via Newby Bridge to the village of Haverthwaite.
Stepping inside this pretty cottage, guests come directly to the open-plan ground-floor accommodation, comprising a lounge/kitchen/diner which has been lovingly finished with individual artistic touches to create a wonderful retreat from the outside world. In the lounge area, there is an inviting sofa from which guests can enjoy the warmth of the cosy wood burner, as well as relax in front of a film on the wall-mounted wide screen TV. A breakfast bar separates the lounge area from the kitchen area, a contemporary space which is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. Stairs lead to the first floor where the attractive double bedroom looks out over the racecourse and offers its own TV. The shower room, also on the first floor offers a walk-in shower and WC.
A patio door from the kitchen leads out to the enclosed patio garden to the rear of the property, at the end of which there is a contemporary summerhouse, providing guests with a lovely place to sit and read or enjoy al fresco dining. There is garden furniture provided. Designated parking is provided for one car a short walk from the property.
