Old Mill Cottage sleeping up to 6 guests
This beautiful Lake District cottage is a converted former mill, set in a peaceful hamlet location. Its all-white exterior and sash windows create an idyllic country house scene, engulfed by craggy green fields and narrow, windy lanes, just 6 miles from Kendal. This cottage is perfect for families, friends and couples looking for a base to explore a different region of Cumbria. The interior boasts a traditional feel, brought together with stylish fixtures and thoughtful details peppering the rooms. Four bedrooms rest on the first floor, well-presented in soothing colours, offering a restful night's sleep. Refresh under a revitalising shower in the en-suite double before getting ready for the days adventures. Perhaps when you return after a long country walk, you may want to sink into the bathtub and luxuriate in a hot soak to soothe your aching muscles. The kitchen occupies modern fittings, yet retains some of its original features. An ornamental fireplace takes centre stage, complemented by a lovely farmhouse theme. The sitting room offers an elevated position on a raised platform. Here, you can gather around the woodburner on a cosy autumn night and relax into the plush sofa. Outside enjoys a glorious garden, with a plethora of wildlife flourishing among pretty flowers and shrubbery, to be enjoyed the year-round. A small pond is full of newts and frogs in the Spring and Summer. Take a seat on the sunny lawn and ooze in the tranquil atmosphere.
