This characterful original farmhouse, rests on the site of the second largest Fort on Hadrian's Wall in the little hamlet of Bowness on Solway. Wrapped in fine detail and boasting three bedrooms; this cottage is perfect for families looking for an all round peaceful escape. Wander into the magnificent hallway, home to a wooden arch which sets the tone on arrival. Across the way, a sitting room hosts leather seating, and an inglenook fireplace with a woodburner. In the evening you can cosy up in the warmth and read a good book amongst it all. The dining room makes a charming place to sit down with your loved ones under wooden beams and next to the electric woodburner-effect fire. Close by, a utility room holds those extras you may need during your stay. The well-equipped kitchen is pretty and homely, fitted with dark wood units and cream marble effect counter tops, ideal for baking in the afternoon, or preparing breakfast in the morning time. Take the stairs up to two double bedrooms, one overlooked by a Velux window and elevated by sloped ceilings, whilst the second comes complete with a small two seater sofa. You will enjoy relaxing here, before drifting into a good nights sleep. The third bedroom is a king-size double, tied together with bedside tables and a wardrobe for your convenience. The beautiful bespoke en-suite compliments the room well, with a walk-in shower and stunning black and white décor. If this isn't enough, a spacious family bathroom is perfect for relaxing after a long day, stylish and well presented for a glimpse of luxury. To the front of the cottage is a small paved sunny garden, where you can unwind on the bench and embrace some 'me time'. Bowness on Solway offers much to admire, being home to a pub and a tea room, whilst Hadrians Wall stretches from the village to Wallsend. The Victorian seaside resort of Silloth is 16 miles away, whilst Keswick and the heart of the Lake District are easily reached by car. Make the most of this desirable getaway.
