The property

This beautifully-presented, link-detached character cottage dating back to 1826 is located in the attractive village of Lazonby on the edge of the Eden Valley.

This cottage is ideally located for family and friends wishing to spend time together and explore this stunning area.

The River Eden runs through the bottom of the village and the property is also within easy reach of the Lake District.

Stylishly and thoughtfully presented throughout, this cottage boasts a high quality well-equipped kitchen with granite surfaces, exposed beams and underfloor heating on the ground floor.

There are three comfortable bedrooms upstairs with oak fitted wardrobes, each having the advantage of an USP socket.

The fells such as Melmerby Fell beckon you from the views from the bedroom windows.

After a day’s exploring relax in the lounge and cosy up in front of the woodburning stove.

On warmer evenings why not throw open the front door and enjoy an alfresco meal or drink on the patio in the generous front enclosed cottage garden.

This particularly well-served village not only has a choice of pubs, a church and petrol station but even has an outdoor heated swimming pool that is open in the summer months.

The Settle-Carlisle Railway also stops here and the station is two minutes away from the cottage.

Lazonby is surrounded by rolling hills and the idyllic countryside of the Eden Valley, ready for you to explore on foot or by cycling, and is a great area for birdwatching.

A short drive away is the town of Penrith where younger members of your party can enjoy the glass roof heritage centre Rheged with its cafe, shops, play areas and huge 3D film screen.

The centre also houses exhibitions, talks, live-screenings and even has a spa, so is a treat for all the family.

Also a short drive away is the popular Hutton-in-the-Forest, a historic house and gardens which hosts a variety of events.

Why not visit Ullswater Lake and Pooley Bridge with the historic steamers, watersports and its bustling village centre?

For those looking for a more challenging activity the fells surrounding Ullswater include Helvellyn.

This super cottage has delights to discover and explore that are so accessible in all directions, making it an ideal location all year round.
