  • Mike

    “Fabulous holiday cottage, very comfortable, 'home from home'.”

    The cottage is well placed for exploring the coast, the lakes and the Northern Fells. Looking forward to returning in the future.

Perfect for couples, friends or families of four, this superb holiday home is an excellent base for exploring countryside, coastline and much more. Step into the property and a sumptuous, bright kitchen/diner lies straight ahead, equipped usefully with slick furnishings and a splendid solid oak dining table to gather the group around at mealtimes. After an exhausting day of exploring the marvels of the Lake District, or the idyllic Solway coastline, you will look forward to a night watching TV in front of the enticing Inglenook fireplace which houses a wonderful woodburner. The ground floor also hosts a stylish twin bedroom, finished in tasteful greys and whites so you can catch your rest in style.
