The property

Gardeners Cottage is a charming, pet-friendly retreat in the picturesque rural village of Bootle near Waberthwaite, Cumbria.

Boasting a luxurious hot tub and a fun-filled games room, this is the perfect destination for a relaxing and entertaining getaway for families and friends.

Set in four acres of gardens, attached to the owners Victorian house, this stunning house was originally the watermill dating back to 1700, with the River Annas flowing through the grounds.

Inside you'll find an open-plan space designed for you to relax on the sofa as you warm up by the woodburning stove and watch a film, prepare a meal in the fully-equipped kitchen and enjoy it around the dining table.

At the end of the day, climb the stairs with double bed and shower room.

Enjoy the large garden which has space for badminton on the front lawn, paddling and fishing with nets in the river and a barbecue is available for guests to use.

There is also a small games room in the garden with table football and table tennis.

The garden area surrounding the cottage is fenced off to stop children wandering too far but care should be taken to supervise children at all times due to the proximity of the river.

Explore the local village and stock up on essentials at the village store, stop for breakfast at the café and have a delicious meal at the pub.

The award-winning beach at Silecroft is just a short drive, where you can find a lovely inn, pony trekking and a 9-hole golf course.

To travel further afield, you can embark on the West Coast railway line at Bootle Station and travel up the coast to Ravenglass, where you can hop on-board the Ravenglass & Eskdale narrow gauge railway, which will take you up the Eskdale Valley to the foot of Scafell.

As well as the trekking centre in Silecroft, there is also a wonderful opportunity to visit the Cumbrian Heavy Horse Centre and participate on a ride over the fells on a Clydesdale, Shire or Ardennes horse.

Gardeners Cottage is perfect place to stay at any time of the year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
