This detached, traditional former farmhouse, accessed by a gravelled track, is full of old world charm with stone flagged floors, exposed beams, wood panelled walls and studded oak doors, but these generous sized rooms come with all the comfort and luxuries you need. Step from the inner hallway with its original stone flagged floor, through the imposing studded entrance door and you are in one of the three reception rooms, perfect to sit in front of the traditional fireplace with its wood burner before enjoying a hearty meal and good conversation around the dining table. Further down the hallway you will find the second sitting room with a wood burner and stone fireplace, or if a little time away from the rest of your party is needed, then the tranquillity of the study with its wood panelled walls awaits you. A splendid kitchen with handcrafted units and granite work surfaces provide excellent space and is well equipped to cater for your needs, and with the central island unit there is plenty of room for helpers too.
Take the lovely oak staircase to the first floor landing and five very comfortable bedrooms await you. The large master bedroom has its own en-suite dressing room and bathroom. The period charm is carried through the other rooms, taking in old oak floors, wood panelled wall and beamed ceilings. A stunning contemporary family bathroom can be found behind a magnificent oak studded door, with a roll-top bath to soak away in after a full day’s adventures.
Outside, mature well stocked gardens are amongst the many areas for your enjoyment. A public right of way takes you through a wooden gate and soon you are on the banks of Black Beck. Further afield the beautiful Duddon Valley is well worth a visit, and the 11th-century village of Broughton-in-Furness is just a short drive away. Some of Cumbria’s finest beaches can be found at Haverigg and Silecroft, whilst Coniston Old Man might appeal to some. Others might prefer a ride on the Ravenglass & Eskdale railway, or a visit to Muncaster Castle makes a perfect day out for all the family. Beach 5 miles. Shop and restaurant 2¾ miles, pub 1½ miles.
