Firbank Cottage is a large family home set in the heart of a traditional Cumbrian village, a great location for an excellent rural retreat.
Newly listed for 2018, this spacious holiday home offers contemporary, tastefully decorated bedrooms on the first floor comprising of a spacious double, a comfortable twin and a cosy single room. The top floor is home to a beautiful master bedroom which features a free standing bath for a relaxing soak after a day of adventure in the Lake District Fells. The ground floor is all about the social aspect and this will prove a winner with large families, multiple couples and friend groups. A large open-plan kitchen/dining room is at the heart of the home. Through one door it leads to a cosy living room, through the other a huge conservatory overlooking the gardens at the rear. This really is a house that gives you flexibility whether you want a quiet night in front of the TV or maybe you want to open a few bottles of wine and get competitive over a board game in the conservatory, which has masses of natural light. At the rear there is a patio and large lawned garden, great if you want to get the badminton out and enjoy the afternoon sun.
The traditional village of Dearham has a lot to offer, the local post office and shop is just 350 yards away, as is the local chippy! If you fancy some pub grub or a rewarding drink after a long day, the village pub is just 500 yards away (6 minute walk). Hop in the car and you will reach the town of Maryport in just 2.5 miles, home to The Lake District Coast Aquarium, as well as Clip ‘n Climb, a popular climbing adventure attraction. Kids will love Cave at the Wave which features an indoor caving activity or if you want to boost your adrenaline you can whizz around the local go-karting track. If culture is your thing you can visit Senhouse Roman Museum or take a trip 4 miles away to Cockermouth. This lovely Cumbrian town is the birthplace of William Wordsworth and offers a delightful town centre with a good mix of bars, restaurants, shops and tourist attractions, and is also home to the famous Jennings’s Brewery.
Of course your trip to Cumbria wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the recently crowned UNESCO World Heritage site, The Lake District National Park. In just 7 miles you will be within the National Park with its stunning scenery and no end of walking and cycling routes. Continue your route for another 8 miles to find Bassenthwaite Lake, one of Cumbria’s most stunning lakes with the backdrop of the imposing Skiddaw, a challenge for even the most experienced fell walkers. Beach 3 miles. Shop 350 yards, pub and restaurant 500 yards.
