Anns Cottage, Langdale
Arrival day: Saturday | Sleeps: 4
Nestled in a pretty Langdale hamlet, this 'topsy turvy' 17th century Lakeland cottage offers walks in abundance from its doorstep. An elegant refurbishment has equipped the accommodation to exacting standards, but kept in place its traditional features; exposed ceiling beams, slate fireplace, thick walls, vaulted ceiling and picturesque windows. This peaceful and perhaps romantic retreat promises fire-side cosiness in winter, a private terraced patio for summery days, and a fine local pub nearby to follow those hard days on the fells. The greatest treat is the view from the master bedroom's brass bed! Anns Cottage boasts inclusive Langdale Leisure Club Membership for guests.
