Attractive cottage located in the heart of the small village of Satterthwaite, with its popular pub and with easy access to walks in Grizedale Forest.
This lovely cottage, with its quirky features, is situated in the perfect location for those who want to spend their holiday exploring the great outdoors. Grizedale Forest is right on the doorstep, and the forest’s visitor centre is just over a mile away, offering cycling routes and walks for all abilities, a renowned sculpture trail, children’s play area, cafe, and a Go-Ape climbing centre. A walk up the nearby Carron Crag gives some of the best views over Coniston and the Old Man. In the opposite direction is the delightful Rusland Valley. Both Lake Windermere and Coniston Water are a short drive from the cottage, where guests can try a range of waterside activities, from pleasurable boat trips, to windsurfing lessons. Enjoy a gentle stroll around the picturesque Tam Hows or for the hardier fell walker, the majestic and rugged Langdales are also only a short drive away. The village of Satterthwaite, with its village pub, is one of the Lake District’s secret, yet accessible hideaways.
The front door of this property opens directly into the lovely and cosy lounge, with its comfortable seating, woodburner burner, TV/DVD and Freesat WiFi. This room leads guests to the smart and contemporary kitchen, with its oven, hob, fridge with ice compartment, microwave, and washing machine. Leading off from the opposite side of the lounge to the kitchen, is the property’s dining room, with table and chairs, a well-stocked bookcase and French windows which open onto the garden. There is also a stylish tiled shower room with WC and underfloor heating on this floor. Stairs from next to the front door lead to the first-floor accommodation, where there are elegantly understated bedrooms. The first of these is a pretty king-size room with an attractive feature fireplace and window which affords views to the village church. The other room is single with similar lovely views of the village.
Outside, the patio garden to the rear of the property, is a lovely sunny place to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings, offering bistro-style seating, as well as a bench. There is also a shed to allow guests to store bikes. There is parking for one car on the lane beside the garden wall, just next to the cottage or next to the church opposite. A gate from here gives access to the property via the patio. Please note, there is a right of pedestrian access through the back yard to the adjoining Honeysuckle Cottage
