About the Property

Peaceful, stylish and super-comfy, with great walks from the door

'A really fabulous cottage in a beautiful location'.
'The best holiday cottage we've stayed in in the Lakes( Visitor comments)

BEDLINEN, TOWELS, FULL SKY TV PACKAGE, PHONE & WIFI - NO CHARGE

This beautifully furnished cottage is a real home-from-home, with bags of space and really stylish and comfortable family accommodation. Wonderfully peaceful (and relaxing!) it's set in breathtaking scenery, with an old post office & stores a delightful stroll down the valley. There's loads of great things for all the family to enjoy nearby - from the owl sanctuary at Muncaster Castle and the little single gauge steam railway to the coast, to the Cumbrian Heavy Horses Centre and the Roman fort at Hardknott. It's an easy drive to the Lake District's best-known attractions and amazingly, to vast sandy beaches. The little town of Broughton-in Furness is just 10 minutes away with two great food shops offering local produce, and some lovely old inns nearby offer excellent food. Yet you're in the heart of the mountains here with wonderful walks from the door too. You can relax in the oak-beamed sitting room and enjoy roaring log fires, comfy sofas & piles of books and games, or chill out and watch Sky TV and DVDs. The gorgeous, beautifully-equipped kitchen -breakfast room has glass doors that open onto the patio and walled garden, where you can sit with a glass of wine and relax, listening to the waterfall and rushing stream nearby. Heaven! This cottage is 4 Star Visit Britain, Gold, which means it's really lovely, but not too scary for families with young children or pets.
