About this property

A light yet cosy cottage beautifully located to explore the Cumbrian Coast and the western Lake District. The perfect getaway for families or friends who are keen walkers.

Set on the edge of the Lake District near Haile, this wonderfully appointed cottage is surrounded by natural beauty. At your doorstep, you can enjoy walks or even horse riding up to Cold Fell or venture further afield to the Ennerdale valley and lake with a variety of fells surrounding it. You can also access some of the Lake District s iconic peaks such as Scafell Pike which is 14 miles away. Head to the coast for a seaside day trip, with the Georgian harbour town of Whitehaven 8 miles away, or St Bees 5 miles away which has a delightful little beach and marks the start of Wainwright s Coast to Coast walk. This converted barn makes excellent use of light and space with its reverse level layout. Through the front door, you ll find a stone floor hallway that leads to the three bedrooms. The master bedroom enjoys access to the garden through French doors as well as an en suite shower room. A second double bedroom and twin bedroom also have a door out to the garden. There is a family bathroom with a bath and separate shower and a utility room with a washing machine and dryer to complete the ground floor. Upstairs is the open plan living space with a beamed ceiling and wooden flooring. Tucked under the mezzanine is the cosy sitting room with comfortable sofas and a wood burner for colder evenings. Up two steps is the modern, well equipped kitchen with an electric cooker and hob, a fridge with an icebox, a microwave and a dishwasher, as well as an island with a breakfast bar. The dining area looks out through the double doors onto the balcony, where there is also a table and chairs for al fresco dining. In the mezzanine up a set of stairs is a further sitting room with a TV, DVD player, iPod docking station and a radio, plus a unique window that lets in plenty of light and provides wonderful countryside views. From the sunny decked balcony, which is perfect for warm afternoons, stairs lead down to the partially enclosed terraced garden, with raised beds, a pond, and a further seating area.
