About this property

With miles of footpaths and cycle trails through valleys and mountains, this delightful cottage for seven is bursting with characterfully décor and charm and is ideal for walkers and nature enthusiasts.

Lorton is ideally placed to enjoy the great outdoors. Bring the bikes or just take your walking boots and head into Whinlatter Forest Park to find graded cycling and walking trails for all abilities, a popular cafe and a play park. Thrill seekers will love the high ropes course. For lakeside strolls, a picnic, a wild swim or a paddle Crummock Water is 5 miles down the road. The pub in the village serves good food and real ales, the shop sells locally sourced food for your basics and there is a tea room. The Georgian town of Cockermouth is 5 miles away and has a variety of independent and antique shops, cafés and restaurants. Outdoor enthusiasts will love Whinlatter Forest Park, 3.5 miles away, for its array of mountain biking tracks, café and high ropes course with zip wires. Sympathetically renovated to retain its authentic charm, discover sumptuous textiles, exposed wooden beams, floorboards and stone walls, plus antique furniture alongside an array of modern comforts. Step into the tiled hallway and discard your outdoor clothes and boots. The kitchen has an electric oven and hob, fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Cook a delicious meal and gather around the antique dining table in the dining room, catching up at the end of a busy day. As the evening draws in, retire to the large living room, where comfortable sofas and armchairs face the wood burner, perfect for cosy nights with a Smart TV as well. In warm weather, open the French doors to the patio and let the fresh air in as you read a good book on the sofa. Upstairs, the bedrooms retain the same character. The master twin bedroom has an en suite shower room, while a further twin bedroom, a double bedroom and a single room have ample storage and fantastic views. The family bathroom has a marble floor and a shower over the bath. Outside, find a pretty patio with garden furniture and a variety of shrubs and plants.
