Tastefully decorated in greys, blues and creams, curtains by John Lewis. Centrally heated throughout, of course, with wood burning stoves in lounge and games room. A spacious holiday house enjoying superb views of the Helvellyn range through the large windows.

Outside there are spacious and beautiful gardens, meadows and woodland, large car parking area, and an attractive summer house with patio area, BBQ and outdoor dining. The summer house is perfect for cooler evenings. There is a large children’s play area with football nets, play castle & climbing frame, sand pit & play equipment.
