This outstanding, eco-friendly ground floor cottage in Lorton Vale sits just three miles from both Cockermouth and Lorton.
Built with an abundance of local and original barn timber, the cottage boasts an old rustic charm despite being built by the owner, who lives on site, in 2007.
Featuring sustainable underfloor heating and solar panels, and equipped with organic bed linen, Buttermere Cottage is one of four charming eco-friendly properties offering a relaxing getaway with a small carbon footprint.
With all rooms spread across the ground floor, the cottage is easily accessible for disabled guests and boasts two superbly sized double bedrooms, one with room for a wheelchair.
Further through the cottage is a well-maintained shower room and a drying cupboard, particularly useful if visiting in winter!
The open kitchen/dining/lounge comes fully equipped with an electric oven and fridge/freezer plus a cosy wood burning stove and a TV and DVD player, providing all you need for a relaxing evening.
Step to the rear of the cottage and discover a hidden gem - a beautiful terrace area complete with furniture, perfect for a sunny day.
With private parking for one car, and further available over the stream, Buttermere Cottage has everything you need for a rural getaway, with plenty to do in the surrounding areas.
In Cockermouth, visit Wordsworth's House or one of the many art galleries; be adventurous in Braithwaite on the Go Ape circuit; or branch further afield, taking an hour's drive to Carlisle Castle.
Sitting on ten acres of land, Buttermere cottage is an idyllic retreat, surrounded by newly planted woodland, a wildlife meadow, pond and arboretum, with plenty of wildlife to spot including deer, foxes, badgers, and the resident barn owl.
For cosy evenings in, countryside walks, and a variety of days out, look no further.
