The cottage also boasts a beautiful snug, making a lovely spot to spend a special moment with a loved one before the fire, or delve into a good book on the impressive Chesterfield sofa.

Spend quality time together in the heart of the house; the kitchen, where everyone can gather around the table with a delicious dinner, prepared with the assistance of the good range of appliances at hand, even including a dishwasher for your convenience!

Be sure to make the most of the rear enclosed garden in the summer months too, the patio making a lovely spot to relax with a refreshing beverage in hand when you're not out exploring the wonders of the Lakes.

Back inside, the ground floor also plays host to a handy shower room, ideally situated for a relaxing rinse after a day of adventure, while up on the first floor you can find a bathroom too for a warm soak beneath the bubbles.

The first floor boasts the three sleeping spots too, made up of two king rooms and a twin too, offering a flexible sleeping arrangement for a variety of group needs, each room providing a simple yet stylish interior.

Pull on your walking boots and step outside on your day of exploration, beginning in the local village of Kirkoswald with a stroll along the River Eden making a wonderful way to start the day, before picking up some ingredients from the local shop for a hearty breakfast.

The village also benefits from a choice of two pubs, both serving delicious food for when you don't feel like cooking, as well as there being a Post Office and a 12th century church too.

The area boasts a plethora of wonderful outdoor activities, with walking and cycling all around, as well as the River Eden boasting opportunities for trout and salmon fishing offering a truly idyllic day, with canoeing and climbing nearby too.

Explore the hidden gem of the Eden Gorge resting between Lazonby and Armathwaite, with the latter hosting two inviting inns where you can enjoy a rewarding drink after a day of rambling.

Keen climbers will delight at the close proximity to Cross Fell in the North Pennines AONB, the highest mountain in the Pennine Hills you can expect to find some truly spectacular scenery, while the Lake District boasts the beauty of Ullswater, skiing opportunities and even more climbing; a truly exceptional day out at any time of the year.

About the location

KIRKOSWALD

Penrith 9 miles; Carlisle 18 miles.

The delightful rural village of Kirkoswald is situated in the Eden Valley and is ideally placed for exploring the Lake District and the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Kirkoswald has two excellent pubs, both serving fine quality food, a 12th century church and a shop and Post Office. The River Eden runs nearby and the area is renowned for its superb trout and salmon fishing, along with walking, cycling, canoeing and climbing. There are literally miles of glorious paths following the river's course, with welcoming spots for riverside picnics and sightseeing. Expect caves and gorges, and look out for the ten unusual benchmark sculptures along the way. The Eden Gorge, between Lazonby and Armathwaite, is one of Cumbria's best-kept secrets, and is well worth exploring, plus the local railway station is a stop on the Settle-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain. Brougham Castle, Long Meg and her daughters (the 3rd largest stone circle in England), Hadrian's Wall, the town of Penrith and the historic city of Carlisle are all a short drive away. The stunning scenery of both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks are within reach, making Kirkoswald a convenient place to stay.
