Tucked away behind the owners’ house, Bridge End Cottage offers spacious holiday accommodation. The cottage is inverted, having a double and twin bedded rooms and the bathroom downstairs and quarry tiled floors throughout. Upstairs, the ceilings are wooden and roof-shaped and the double-glazed windows overlook the garden with its trees, climbing roses and fish pond. The floors are wooden and the sandstone wall of the old stables has been left exposed.
There is off-road parking (down a very narrow lane). Children are very welcome, but no pets or smoking

Overview: Bridge end Cottage is located in the village of Eamont Bridge, about 20 yards away from the River Eamont and the 14th century bridge itself. The village is a good area from which to explore the Eden Valley, the Northern Lakes and the Scottish Borders. The market town of Penrith is within walking distance. The Rivers Eamont and Lowther flow into the River Eden, all easily accessible to the keen fisherman and nature lovers. Apart from the magic and beauty of the Lake District, the area is steeped in history. This is Wordsworth country and the Romans marched through, Hadrian building his wall north of Carlisle. The Jacobites and Bonny Prince Charlie stayed in Penrith on their journey south. Two Neolithic henges are on the outskirts of the village, Potfest and Appleby Fair are big attractions during the year.
History: The owners house - Bridge End, adjacent to the cottage, is the oldest house in the village and is built of cobbles and lime mortar and rendered with pebble-dash. The Cottage was originally a stable and it was converted and extended in 1986. The original external wall, which is incorporated in the Cottage, has been retained. Upstairs the wooden ceilings are beamed. The living room overlooks the River Eamont and the 14th century bridge from one window, while the other looks onto the garden, with its mature trees, lawn and fish pond. There is a gas fire and central heating, two sofas (one which converts into a double bed), books, galore, a TV, music centre and games. The kitchen is very well equipped with a washing machine, dryer, microwave, kettle, toaster, halogen hob and oven, large fridge freezer and table and chairs for four. In the cupboard at the top of the wooden stairs, is information about local bus and train times and all the many local interesting places to visit and things to do.
We are Janet and Graham and have lived in this beautiful area for most of our lives. Both of us grew up and went to school in Penrith, a mile away from Eamont Bridge. Bridge End Cottage is adjacent to our home and both houses are situated between the Rivers Eamont and Lowther. Penrith is within easy walking distance for shopping. We regularily walk into town or into the surrounding countryside to eat at the many very good restaurants and go for long walks and bike rides accompanied by friends. Our garden is something of a passion, with Janet looking after the plants and exterminating weeds and Graham doing the grass cutting donkey work! Graham has retired, but Janet still works part time for the Probation Service.
Janet Hedley purchased this cottage in 1983
Bridge End Cottage was originally a stable and we converted it when Janet's Mother came to live with us. After her day, various family members lived there, but when they all moved on we did not want it to be left empty and a Holiday Cottage was an ideal solution. We love having people stay and do our best to make their holiday memorable.
Our house and the Cottage are both full of character, with a date stone of 1671 above Bridge End. We have a lovely garden, with plenty of space. The nearby River Eamont is delightful and my children and grandchildren love to go fishing with nets or paddling or messing about in the canoe.

We are close to Ullswater (my favourite lake) and the hills and scenery are simply fabulous. There are two ferries running between Patterdale and Glenridding, stopping off at various destinations.
