Built some 200 years ago, this charming cottage has been beautifully refurbished to offer home from home accommodation in the heart of the Lake District.
Situated by the river Ea and Wheelhouse bridge, this property enjoys a peaceful location just a short walk from the main village square. Here you will find a clutch of excellent inns, cafes and restaurants including a Michelin star awarded restaurant. Set out on foot to follow one of the many walking routes in the area, which take in Hampsfell and Eggerslack Wood and the Lake District Mountains. Or why not rest your feet and hop on the Lake Windermere steamer, which winds its way for ten miles into the central fells, passing Bowness and Sawrey along the way.
The front door opens into a large hall, which steps down to the welcoming living areas. With plump sofas, a roaring wood burning stove (guests to provide their own logs), exposed ceiling beams and cosy rugs, the lounge is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a long day outside. The kitchen is light and airy with a door leading out to the walled garden, while the conservatory is home to the dining area with riverside views. Upstairs there are two comfortable king-size bedrooms, both beautifully decorated with antique furnishings and charming ornaments. The bedrooms share a stylish contemporary bathroom with shower over bath.
Outside, to the front of the property, a small terraced patio area overlooks the river and meadow beyond. To the rear of the cottage, there a little walled garden with table and chairs for enjoying al fresco meals. Here you will also find a luxurious hot tub (only available for 2021, from 01/01/2022 hot tub not available),perfect for soothing those achy muscles after a long day on foot. A small iron bridge crosses over to the opposite side of the river where there is a small private riverside bank for enjoying peaceful picnics surrounded by nature.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
