Moving through the space, you will discover a stylish kitchen boasting all the necessities for the designated chef to prepare an evening meal for the family. After a walk along one of the many treks within the Lake District, retire to one of the two elegantly-dressed bedrooms, offering a bright and airy interior to wake up to each morning; you will find a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, both serviced by a shower room.
