  • “Lovely cottage - very comfortable and well equipped.”

    Parking spaces are small but not a problem for our two cars. Would recommend.

About the property

This welcoming, semi-detached barn conversion lies within the peaceful village of Allithwaite, in easy reach of the Lake District National Park.

The Cottage is a unique, quirky converted pig shed with lots of character throughout.

Set over three floors, The Cottage is a charming holiday home, making a great choice for an idyllic family break to Cumbria.

Enter the property and be welcomed into the well-presented kitchen/diner; take a seat at the breakfast bar and keep the chef of the group company whilst they get to grips with all the mods and cons of your self-catered cottage, while there is also a neat dining area which can be used for mealtimes, while the conservatory offers a tranquil spot to enjoy a good read or favourite drink amongst the exposed stonework.

Move up to the first floor to find the sitting room, perfect for unwinding after a day of rambling the Lakelands, with a sofa, two armchairs and Smart TV for on-demand entertainment, as well as a small balcony where you step out and take in the surrounding countryside.

When you’re seeking rest, there are three bedrooms to choose from; a few steps from the kitchen leads down to a double bedroom and bathroom, whilst upstairs there is a single bedded room with trundle bed, ideal for the little ones, plus a top floor double bedroom and en-suite shower, accommodating perfectly for a family, each bedroom being carefully composed of neutral colours and hosting ample storage for your personal belongings.

To the exterior of The Cottage there is off-road parking for two cars, as well as a raised garden area where you can enjoy your morning coffee as you contemplate where to visit next.

The local village of Allithwaite is ideally placed for a rural retreat, sitting on the southern edge of the Cartmel Peninsula and described as being ‘set like a jewel in a cloak of green”, making The Cottage a fantastic scenic base.

Venture into the nearby historic village of Cartmel, with its ancient 12th century priory and the UK’s smallest racecourse, it’s known as a gastro village with the renowned L’Enclume restaurant and traditional pubs.

The bustling Edwardian town of Grange-over-Sands is also worth a visit, home to a charming atmosphere with plenty of wonderful shops and eateries to take advantage of, with a traditional fish and chip shop giving you a true taste of the coast.

Further afield, the delights of the Lake District are just a short drive away, with opportunities for walking, cycling, watersports and much more, The Cottage has everything you could need for a memorable family getaway in Cumbria.
