Coachman’s Country Cottage is a unique and characterful cottage in the quaint country village of Melmerby. This beautifully appointed one-bedroomed cottage features a cobbled courtyard, a wealth of beams and vaulted ceiling, with spectacular fell views from the panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows in the garden room. This is a true romantic getaway with a private garden, patio and a superb hot tub to enjoy the stunning views by day and the twinkling stars by night.
Surrounded by llamas, ponies and wildlife, it has a real ’wow’ factor with vaulted ceilings and amazing views. The cosy underfloor heating is complemented by a wood burner for that romantic night by the fire. The luxurious and quirky beamed bathroom features a slipper bath and French-style basin, en-suite to the bedroom. This gorgeous bedroom with brass bed, French armoire and mood lighting, features a huge, original, stone fireplace with inset large flat screen TV.
The main living room also features an old stone fireplace complete with original Victorian set pot, historically used by the manor house servants for the laundry, and above the log store sits a 65" wall-mounted Smart TV that is viewed from the huge Chesterfield sofa opposite.
The beautifully appointed kitchen simply exudes charm and character with beamed, vaulted ceiling, hand painted units with a large range cooker and oak worktops with double sink. The garden room is open plan to the main living room and is complete with a large comfy sofa where you can relax and enjoy the fantastic views over the surrounding countryside.
In addition to this beautiful cottage, there is also a beautifully designed and decorated Shepherds Hut situated in the delightful private country garden of the cottage. This cosy room has a gorgeous double bed, underfloor heating enabling all year round use and the most amazing views of the fells and wildlife. Although dogs are not able to stay in the cottage, if you cannot bear to leave your pooch behind, there is the Creature Comforts Country Hotel, a specially designed building with CCTV where you can bring your own sleeping cages/beds and food so that they are on site with you. This enables guests to take their dogs out with them for the day and return in the evening to their own personal kennel space and care for their pets personally (by prior arrangement with owner).

There is also a private swimming pool that can be booked independently, just 100 yards away from the cottage.
