A delightful and unusual end of terrace cottage, located in a quiet location on the outskirts of the pretty village of Allithwaite, on the stunning Cartmel Peninsula.

This charming Allithwaite cottage is an ideal holiday location for couples and small families to get away from it all and enjoy this quiet, unspoilt corner of the Lake District and the accommodation is set over three floors to take advantage of the lovely local views.

This Allithwaite cottage comprises a ground floor country kitchen, a first floor sitting room with double sofa bed for flexibility and cosy open fire, an adjoining balcony overlooking the garden and stream and two lovely bedrooms and bathroom on the second floor.

Parents will enjoy the excellent location and a little added luxury with a lovely spa bath in the main bathroom, whilst the children will enjoy exploring the grounds and the babbling brook, which boasts the occasional brown trout.

Enjoy a relaxing day in the garden at this Allithwaite cottage, take a pleasant stroll down to the coast, venture inland along one of the many nearby footpaths, including the Cumbrian Way or visit one of the local pubs for a refreshing beverage.
