Comfortably appointed throughout to provide relaxing accommodation, this Lake District cottage is perfect for large families and friends looking to enjoy time together in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. Set over three floors, this Aspatria cottage includes a stunning high ceiling sitting room with an open fire set in a feature fireplace. A spacious first floor gallery dining room, overlooking the sitting room, is adjacent to the fitted kitchen and provides a perfect place to gather round and plan your next day's activities. Outside this Lake District cottage is a pleasant lawned area, together with a large patio; perfect for catching the Cumbrian sun. Running alongside this charming Lake District cottage is a public footpath, perfect for walking the dogs.

Less than a 30 minute drive away is the pretty Lakeside village of Buttermere, nestling between mountain ranges with stunning walks up the Haystacks and Red Pike fells, but for a more gentle option, a charming walk around Buttermere Lake itself is equally beautiful and a perfect way to spend a day.
