Cottage in Cumbria in Keswick, Cumbria

Cottage in Cumbria Self-Catering

An ideal location for nature lovers, Bassenthwaite Lake is a popular osprey viewing station and is also home to Atlantic salmon, grasshopper warbler, curlew and geese. For families, the Lake District Wildlife Park on the northern edge of the lake makes for a fun filled day out, as do the high ropes course, mountain biking trails and Segway adventures in nearby Whinlatter Forest Park, 8 miles away. Just 2 miles away, the pretty village of Embleton boasts a popular pub, spa hotel and restaurant, and children s play area, with a well respected 18 hole golf course just outside of the village itself. With a multitude of excellent walking in all directions, discover the gentle slopes of Sale Fell from the doorstep or head 8 miles east to take on the mighty Skiddaw. Inside, this 17th century cottage is brimming with original charm, through exposed ceiling beams, stone walls, a large inglenook fireplace with an open fire, and slate flooring now adorned with cosy rugs. Prepare tasty meals in the spacious kitchen, which is fitted with 2 ovens, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, table to seat six and underfloor heating for making that first cup of tea on chillier mornings. A handy utility room houses the washing machine and tumble dryer, and opens onto a downstairs WC and the side patio. A sunroom overlooking the garden and up to Sale Fell is a peaceful space in which to relax with a good book and make the most of some peace and quiet. Meanwhile, the cosy lounge with its exposed beam, inglenook fireplace with open fire, Freeview TV and DVD player is the perfect place to warm up after a long day outside. Steep wooden stairs lead up to a spacious bathroom with a separate shower. Continue climbing to reach three charming bedrooms: one twin with views towards the lake, one smaller twin overlooking the games barn, and one king size with an en suite shower room and views up to Sale Fell. Outside, the garden wraps around three sides of the cottage and features a pond and stream, offering plenty of opportunities to enjoy the sunshine. Dine alfresco in one of the two patio areas equipped with out door seating and BBQ or head into the games barn for a spot of snooker or table tennis. A separate stone building accommodates the fourth bedroom: a king size with en suite shower room perfect for couples. A large gravel driveway provides parking for up to four cars. Please note the property is accessed by 8 stone steps from the parking area to the front door and both house and garden are multi level, so this cottage may not be suitable for those with limited mobility.
