A superb detached cottage, set on the owner’s working farm next to their small static caravan park, on the outskirts of the Lake District with views across the surrounding rolling countryside. Appointed to a high standard throughout with cosy underfloor heating, this spacious cottage is sure to appeal to families, couples and friends looking to enjoy time together in the pretty Cumbrian countryside. Set all on ground floor level, the cottage has two bright and cosy bedrooms with the master complete with its own en-suite shower room. The sizeable open plan living space has a bespoke fitted kitchen, dining area and a splendid sitting area with a woodburning stove and French doors opening onto the rear patio and garden. Outside, a flagged area and gravel parking lie to the front, whilst to the rear is a sizeable lawned garden with patio area from where you can enjoy an early morning coffee or settle down with an alfresco meal at the end of a busy day. The cottage sits in an attractive, rural location enabling guests to enjoy lovely walks right from the front door. During the lambing and calving season, guests will see the farmer busy tending to their flock, giving a real flavour of this authentic country location. Nearby Kendal offers visitors shopping, eateries and various attractions including the Brewery Arts Centre, as well as Quaker Tapestry Museum and Abbot Hall Art Gallery.
