This upside down cottage is a wonderful base for a family holiday on the private shared Merewood Lodge site at Ecclerigg, equidistant between Windermere and Ambleside.
Steps lead up to the property, and inside to the entrance hall where you will feel the warmest of welcomes, that leads through to the wonderful open-plan sitting room.
Sit back and relax in the comfortable leather sofas.
The dining area is situated in the corner of the layout, and a stylish kitchen lies off from this.
From the hall, stairs take you down to the ground floor, with three bedrooms; a twin, a single, and a king size with an en-suite and a family bathroom.
Spend time outside on the secluded private walled patio, perhaps with a cold drink, or dine there in the warmer weather as you plan your day ahead.
There are numerous local walks from the property including those via the bridle path next to the site leading towards Troutbeck for walks on Wansfell, and to Kirkstone, Ambleside, Holehird Gardens and Orrest Head, to mention just a few.
