The Cottage - Bankwood House. A stylish romantic retreat.

Located in: Kirkby-in-Furness
Warm and welcoming self catering cottage located in a small hamlet, in the beautiful south west part of Cumbria, and is ideal for couples (or couples with a child) who want good access to the surrounding stunning countryside, or just to have the opportunity to chill. The cottage,which was originally a small pottery, adjoins the owners main home which is a converted Dutch Barn. This barn was originally part of a working farm and is sited furthest away from the original farmhouse and therefore, as well as enjoying lovely views over the neighbouring farmers fields, the property is not overlooked by other houses.The cottage has been lovingly and stylishly converted to a very high standard.

You enter the property into an open plan area with a stunning mezzanine lounge/dining and kitchen above. A warm underfloor heated natural travertine stone floor covers the entire ground floor.The downstairs lounge has a cosy area to watch TV and there is a polished cast-iron electric stove if you need any backup heat.The bedroom, with good quality bedding, and the separate shower room with walk-in shower and big fluffy towels, both lead off from the downstairs lounge. We can provide a cot or toddler bed in the bedroom on request.The upstairs and downstairs lounges both have 2 seater sofas.Upstairs is light and airy and is a good place to read and relax. The kitchen is spacious and fully fitted including a washer/dryer and dishwasher. The kitchen is well equipped with everything that you would need including a Tassimo coffee maker and an assortment of pods.

French doors from the ground floor lounge area lead out onto a small private secluded garden, with cast-iron table and chair- where you can sit in the morning with a cup of coffee and watch the buzzards soar over the woods. There is a chiminea to keep you warm if the evening is chilly. Upstairs, a stable door leads out onto a balcony with a cast iron table and chairs and a barbecue. This area is perfect to enjoy the afternoon sun.

There is private parking for one car and a covered storage area is available for bikes.

Located in Cumbria, Chapels is a small quiet hamlet that lies between the nearby fells and the beautiful Duddon Estuary. It is located in the village of Kirkby in Furness where there is a local shop and 3 pubs within 1 mile radius. There are plenty of good pubs and places to eat within 20 minutes drive.
It is an ideal base from which to explore the local region. Kirkby Ireleth was listed in the Domesday Book and was of Norse origin. On a clear day the panoramic views over the Duddon Sands to the Lakeland Fells and mountains is spectacular.
Coniston Lake is 7 miles away and the historic market town of Broughton in Furness is 6 miles away.
The famous Cumbria Way is within walking distance.
Dunnerholme Golf Course is 5 miles away and the flat top of the rock forms a strategic feature of the signature Par 3, sixth hole.
The market town of Ulverston with its famous Laurel & Hardy Museum is only 8 miles away and here you will find lovely cobbled streets and an open air market on Thursdays and Saturdays.
The Kirkby-in-Furness train station is approximately 1 mile away and provides a perfect opportunity to travel the Cumbrian west coast as far as Carlisle. The fascinating Muncaster Castle with its renowned owl centre lies on this route.
Explore the National Nature Reserve on Walney Island or discover the gems of our industrial heritage. The local Dock Museum is a unique building in a stunning coastal setting built within a dry dock.
Brantwood House, home of John Ruskin, with its famous gardens is also a fascinating day out. There are a number of beaches that lie within easy driving distance both to the north and south of the property. A great beach to visit is Roan Head. The beach is a National Trust conservation area with an established population of Knatterjack toads, and a two-mile stretch of the Cumbria Coastal Way runs through it.

The Lake District with its impressive peaks, open fells and crystal clear lakes is nature at its most dramatic and you can understand why it has inspired poets, authors and artists throughout the ages. The area has England's five tallest mountains and its deepest lake, two national parks, three areas of outstanding natural beauty and an abundance of flora and fauna. Walking is one of the best ways of exploring the Lake District and one will always be rewarded with stunning views with the changing seasons.The Cottage is situated in the quiet western peninusla but within an approximately 20 mile radius lie the well known and much loved holiday destinations such as Windermere, Bowness, Ambleside and Coniston - fascinating Lakeland towns and villages with their own unique visitor's attractions.
Western Lakeland is a land of vivid and exciting contrasts, lying between the mountains and the sea.
