The property

Holmrook 3.1 miles. Nestled in picturesque Ravenglass, the only coastal village within the Lake District National Park, with panoramic views over the estuary at the confluence of 3 rivers, Waterside provides a comfortable and stylish retreat from which to explore the beautiful local coast and countryside or simply savour the views from within and soak up every sunset. A former boat house and sail loft on the site of a Roman quay and warehouse, Waterside offers a unique opportunity to enjoy a holiday with family or friends literally at the water’s edge. Upon arrival, park in your allocated parking space, round the corner and climb up a couple of steps to reach your front door and make your way into your new home from home to be charmed by the thoughtfully laid-out open-plan, cosy living space, traditionally decorated with exposed beams and a rustic woodburning stove. Perch at the breakfast bar with a glass of wine as the designated chef makes use of the fantastic range of amenities provided in the kitchen to prepare a hearty meal before gathering together to recount the day’s adventures at the dining table as you indulge. Settle down for the evening in a sumptuous spot on the sofa, flicking on the Smart TV with a Sky TV Q box to watch your favourite movie as the room is gently warmed with the glow of the woodburning stove. Escape the excitement and head upstairs to pour in the bubbles and soak your muscles in the family bathroom, or opt for a quick rinse by making use of the en-suite shower room. When sleep calls, retire to one of the three well-presented bedrooms to rest your head, with the choice between a king-size, a small double and a twin, providing flexible sleeping arrangements for a variety of party makeups. In the morning, enjoy a leisurely wake-up maybe enjoying a coffee taking in the estuary views across to Drigg Dunes Nature Reserve from your bed or step outside to take a seat at the patio table. Stroll from your front door to discover the remains of the Ravenglass Roman Bath House, established in 130 AD, from which the Hadrian’s Wall cycle track starts. Catch a hawk flying display at Muncaster Castle, or wander along the banks of the estuary and finish with a Ravenglass ice cream taking in the varied sights and sounds of marine bird life on the waterfront green. For those seeking adventure, embark upon one of the many mountain bike, road bike or walking routes departing from your front door. Alternatively, if water is your thing with 3 rivers meeting in the estuary there is wide scope for paddle boarders, canoeists or kayakers. Board the heritage, narrow-gauge steam train at the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway to enjoy a scenic ride through the picturesque countryside into the heart of the West Cumbrian fells. On your return there is a choice of pub or hotel restaurant serving delicious food and local ales. Make memories that will last a lifetime with a stay at Waterside.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

About the location

RAVENGLASS

Eskdale 4 miles; Wasdale Head 6 miles.

Ravenglass is a small village on the west coast of Cumbria, which made its living from fishing, and in the 18th Century the harbour was also used for smuggling tobacco and other contraband from the Isle of Man. A popular attraction of western Lakeland, the famous Ravenglass to Eskdale Railway, a narrow gauge steam railway known as "L’al Ratty" runs daily from the station through some of the finest and most scenic country in Britain. Just minutes from Ravenglass and easily accessible by a new cycle track is Muncaster Castle, with magnificent gardens and views up to Scafell Pike, and home of the World Owl Trust. This great location boasts a skyline dominated by towering peaks including Scafell - England's highest peak, whilst the nearby stunning valleys of Eskdale, Wasdale and Dunnerdale provide breathtaking scenery to be enjoyed throughout the year. With beautiful Wastwater - the deepest lake in the country, and St Olaf's - one of the smallest churches in England amongst the many landmarks in this beautiful area, this stunning location will have visitors returning time and time again.

Note: On the very rare occasion of extreme and unpredictable weather there may be a need for extra safety measures to be taken at the cottage, - essential use of the electric window shutters (internally operated) during high tides and storms will be explained by the owner prior to arrival.

Note: As Waterside was a former boathouse dating back to the 18th Century it does not have standard door heights, please be mindful going between rooms and in particular the doorway to the main bedroom upstairs.
