Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cottage in Martindale - Swinsty

Self-catering for up to 9 just 1 mile from the magnificent lake of Ullswater

If you are looking for the perfect holiday house to let in England’s Lake District then Swinsty provides an exceptionally well-appointed solution. Sleeping 8/9, Swinsty is ideally situated both as a tranquil haven for walking and relaxing locally and as a base to explore all the attractions the Lakes has to offer.

Originally built in 1679, the house has been recently renovated and refurbished to provide high quality holiday accommodation. The traditional, original Lakeland stone of the exterior is complemented by rooms finished in contemporary comfort and design style.

Located in the breathtaking landscape of unspoilt Martindale, Swinsty is situated in rolling valley farmland with its own walled garden and enclosed parking. It has a lovely terrace for eating out and drinking in the magnificent views. A Lakeland beck trickles past its driveway. The owner's family have been associated with the area for over 80 years.

Swinsty is situated at the end of a long no through road from Pooley Bridge that skirts the south side of Ullswater. So there is absolutely no traffic and it remains quiet even in high summer. Yet access is easy with Penrith and the M6 just 30 min away by car and the nearby small village of Pooley Bridge is just 15 m.

The large entrance hallway has plenty of hanging space for wet coats and boots after a hard day out on the fells. From here is the large 40ft sitting room to your left which is warm and stylish with comfy sofas, a woodburning stove, flatscreen Sky TV, DVD player, music centre, audio system and plenty of books to borrow.

From the sitting room is a play room with study and an extensive library of books which you are welcome to read during your stay - the woodburner works through here too. The play room has a small snooker table which can be converted to table tennis table or darts board.

The kitchen is light and modern with stylish cabinets, electric cooker, hob, microwave, dishwasher, large fridge-freezer. There is an extendible dining table here and double French doors open onto an extensive paved terrace with fantastic views up the valley.

Downstairs there is also a utility room with washing machine, tumble drier and Belfast sink, as well as a separate toilet.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms. Three are doubles, one of which has an en-suite shower room & toilet. There is a washbasin in the second double. There is also a twin bedroom which has a third (single) pull out bed.

There is also a bathroom upstairs with bath and shower over.

Outside there is a lawned garden with patio area. The driveway has parking for two cars with more parking on the other side of the gate.

Magnificent Lake Ullswater is just 1 mile away: second largest of the lakes, and many think the loveliest. There you can swim, picnic , walk or sail on Ullswater's steamer boats.

Challenging or more leisurely walks are on the doorstep. This is walkers' paradise. And as you would expect from truly unspoilt countryside there is a great variety of interesting wildlife to be seen, including red squirrels, badgers, red deer, owls, herons, kestrels, buzzards, and, if you are really lucky, golden eagle.
