This quaint and cosy cottage is a romantic bolthole for couples in search of a relaxing break in the Lakes.
Set in the grounds of Crosthwaite House, the property enjoys a peaceful location with spectacular scenic views. Famed for growing damsons, during the summer this area is a sun drenched patchwork of green and yellow ochre meadows and orchards, dissected by narrow winding lanes that pass farmland, woodland, rivers and becks, perfect for walking and cycling. At the end of a long walk, reward yourself with a hearty meal at the nearby popular inn, or head south to Sizergh where there is an alternative place to dine. Drive west to reach Windermere and its fantastic boating facilities, spectacular scenery and bustling selection of shops, cafes and galleries.
Inside, the accommodation is open-plan, warm and inviting. Prepare tasty romantic meals in the compact yet well-equipped kitchen before dining beside the wood burner that sits in a fine stone fireplace. With a comfortable L-shaped sofa, TV and DVD player, this cosy space is perfect for relaxing nights in. A staircase leads up to the double bedroom, which has space for a cot of required. Next door, there is a charming bathroom with shower over bath.
To the side of the cottage is a pretty terraced garden with bench for al fresco drinks and wonderful views looking out across to the church and distant fells of Whitbarrow Scar and Cartmel Fell.
