The property

Langwathby 1.9 miles.

The Cobbles is a charming, detached cottage nestled in Winskill near Langwathby, Cumbria.

Sitting between the North Pennines and the Lake District, it's the perfect dwelling for a romantic getaway or a peaceful walking holiday for one.

Retaining its original features, The Cobbles has been lovingly restored with a traditional cottage style throughout and is a snug spot in which to unwind after the day's adventure.

Step into the welcoming, open-plan living space with rustic beams, an inviting sofa in front of the TV, and dining seating for two; start the woodburning stove for added comfort whilst you whip up a meal in the kitchen area, complete with an electric oven, hob and plenty of storage space to unpack your favourite ingredients.

A quaint double bedroom awaits you at the end of the day, with a pretty cottage window and rustic wooden doors to relax in a pleasant setting, whilst just next door is the en-suite shower room with extra storage and everything you need to kick-start your day.

In such wonderful surroundings, be sure to take your morning coffee to the outdoor seating area on the patio or take a wander around Winskill and explore the countryside.

The village is unspoilt and rests in the Eden Valley, home to small dwellings, farmhouses and plenty of walking and cycling routes, whilst Langwathby is a short journey away where you can stock up at the local shop or enjoy dinner out in the Shepherd's Inn.

The bustling town of Penrith lies south west and is a wonderful day out for visiting the ruins of Penrith Castle, surrounded by a grassy meadow for picnics in the sunshine, or simply wander its attractive, historic streets busy with specialised shops and discover local history at the Penrith and Eden Museum.

On your way into the Lake District, be sure to stop at Pooley Bridge, sitting on the northerly edge of Lake Ullswater; fuel up at a quaint lakeside tearoom, take the walking routes to scenic spots such as Dunmallard, or take a lovely cruise along Ullswater to discover the neighbouring villages of Glenridding and Howtown.

The Cobbles is a quiet abode to spend time with a loved one and adventure through the spectacular Cumbrian countryside.
