About this property

This beautifully decorated and tastefully furnished cottage is perfect for families looking for an idyllic holiday retreat midway between the Solway Coast and the northern edge of the Lake District.

The tiny village of Arkleby (1 mile) has a welcoming pub and makes a fabulous base for walkers and cyclists discovering this beautiful area. Heading west, you can explore the beaches of the magnificent Solway Coast, with the popular seaside town of Maryport (7 miles) within easy reach. Inland, the bustling Georgian town of Cockermouth (7.5 miles) is the birthplace of Wordsworth and has a range of wonderful independent shops, pubs and restaurants. The northern reaches of the Lake District are nearby, with Bassenthwaite Lake (12 miles) and Loweswater (15 miles) providing some stunning views. Local attractions include the Lake District Wildlife Park (10.5 miles), The Lakes Distillery (11 miles) and the stately home of Mirehouse and Gardens (13.5 miles). Stepping into this bright and airy cottage, the light and relaxing lounge is decorated in light neutral tones and is a fantastic space to unwind in. Featuring a Smart TV, plenty of seating and an open fire, this is perfect for snuggling up and enjoying a favourite movie or for chatting late into the night. Exploring this delightfully cosy cottage further, the spacious kitchen/diner is a pleasure to prepare and share a family meal in, and is fully equipped with an extendable dining table, electric oven and hob, fridge, microwave and dishwasher. The freezer, washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board can be found in the handy utility room. The ground floor also has a stylish bathroom complete with a corner bath, shower cubicle and WC. Steep cottage style stairs lead up to the first floor where you will find two tastefully decorated double bedrooms, each furnished with elegant antique beds. The first bedroom looks out towards Solway with Scotland visible on a clear day, while the other looks out over the pretty garden.
