Quaint Bassenthwaite Cottage sleeping up to 4 guests
Enjoy a picturesque and tranquil stay at this beautifully, presented traditional Lakeland cottage in the heart of Bassenthwaite village in The Lake District National Park.
As soon as you arrive at S97639 you’ll know you’ve made a great choice. Just stand at the bottom of this beautifully manicured and well thought out garden looking back towards the cottage and you’ll think you’ve just picked up a post card from the local gift shop. This terraced cottage gets its name from the mature apple tree in the garden, which in season provides a harvest of plump fruit which guests are welcome to enjoy. Guests will love the stylish décor and thought which has gone into the interior design. Fully refurbished and newly listed for 2018, S97639 has all the modern amenities you need for 21st century living without losing any of the authentic character and charm that this delightful cottage delivers.
This quiet village location means that you can escape and retreat to the countryside in no time. On the first floor you’ll find two bright bedrooms and a family bathroom, making it perfect for two couples and also great for families, whilst downstairs features a well-equipped kitchen and spacious living room. Relaxing in the living room you can enjoy great views out to the lovely garden where you can often see birds feeding and even red squirrels which help themselves to the monkey nuts from the feeder. The enclosed lawned garden is a great place to soak up the sunshine complete with plenty of colour in the rockery and flower beds and best of all, provides easy access to the village pub via the garden gate. You are just 100 yards from a range of local cask ales and great food that bring a refreshing reward after a day of adventure in the countryside. Whether you like walking, hiking or cycling, you are never too far away from your next adventure. There is good access to plenty of walking and cycle routes nearby as well as more challenging fells including Skiddaw, Catbells, Latrigg and Blencathra to name a few.
