The property

This 18th century cottage, the owner of which resides on the floor below, is set in a pretty lawned garden, within the secluded village of Newby.

Retaining a traditional feel with characterful decor, this is a lovely place to return to with your family or friends, relax amongst the true sense of homeliness which continues room to room.

There is an open-plan living area with a lounge and an electric woodburner effect stove, so you can cosy up whilst looking out towards the peaceful countryside.

Exposed beams oversee the layout, and a country cottage kitchen is well-appointed for the dining table tucked away into the corner of the room.

Three steps take you up to the freshly designed shower room, lifted by a light blue overtone, with three bedrooms situated close by.

All are knitted together with pretty bedding, elevated by quirky beams, and backed by enticing views, the master room even features a glamorous chandelier, and storage space for an added effect.

Walks to the pub, cafe and brewery in the village are desirable, and the nearby market town of Penrith is worthy of a visit, joined by a good selection of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, a cinema and swimming baths.

Why not visit the Rheged Discovery Centre in Penrith, or Lowther Castle Gardens and Bird of Prey Centre?

A one-of-a-kind destination not to be missed.
