The property

This delightful Lakeland cottage displays sumptuous Victorian design and atmosphere. The rich blend of Period features throughout mix perfectly with the modern contemporary finish and as soon as you step inside Ash Cottage you will marvel at the sheer attention to sophisticated detail. Tucked away 'far from the madding crowds' in a quiet backwater yet only a few minutes stroll in different directions brings you into the ever popular villages of Windermere and Bowness on Windermere. These villages are stocked full of mouth-watering restaurants, local shops and country pubs to tempt you out and many excellent walks are available straight from your door. Boating activities are at their very best on Lake Windermere and this cottage is an excellent base for touring the Lakes. Whether you are a party of 2, 4 or 6 then Ash Cottage is a real special treat at any time of the year. == Accommodation in Detail A traditional entrance porch leads into the entrance hall with first sight of the sumptuous finish. Cosy yet bright lounge with deep cushioned furnishings and a beautiful fireplace, there is a lovely view from the lounge and this room has a calming atmosphere. The dining room also has a Victorian fireplace with super furnishings to match. The 'state of the art' kitchen has everything you may need and is wrapped up in gorgeous granite and a door leads out to a useful conservatory which leads out to the enclosed rear garden, being ideal for meals 'al fresco'. Upstairs to the first floor with generous double bedroom, full of space and co-ordinated with antique French style furnishings, complete with king size bed and superb views together with an en-suite shower room. The second double bedroom also displays sophisticated white French style furnishings and the luxury Victorian bathroom with separate shower cubicle is a perfect place to pamper yourself after a hard day on our Fells. Upstairs again to the twin bedroom with more sophisticated co-ordination and finishing touches. There are two private parking spaces on the driveway

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
