The holiday home boasts a reading/dressing room, a log burner, beautifully dressed windows with stylish fabrics and accessories. Original Lakeland slate flooring and exposed oak beams, with contemporary oak flooring upstairs. The view of local fells can be seen from the southern kitchen and bedroom windows, tempting for walkers. Guests can simply park up for the week and enjoy the lakes on foot. The cottage has walks straight from the door, along with breathtaking lake and mountain scenery. This cosy village cottage is designed for two. Note: No children allowed, including infants or smoking, but dogs may be considered. Shop (Spar), ATM, garage and gastro pub 50 metres away.
The cottage was built by 1690 and was originally part of the Coaching House, now Traditional Grade II Listed, and stables on the main Windermere route.
Outstanding, circular walk from the cottage to Troutbeck; after a visit to the National Trust Townend Hall, have a drink at The Mortal Man then follow old tracks and footpaths up to the top of Wansfell, for outstanding views over Windermere and Ambleside.
