Glen Rothay Coach House
Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 7
You really can't get much nearer to the heart of the Lake District than this delightful and newly renovated character cottage, which is sure to be very popular. Beautiful Rydal Water is just across the road and the footbridge leads you over to the far shore of the River Rothay and then onto the Rydal Round footpaths up to Rydal Caves and Loughrigg Terrace. Loughrigg Fell and the Fairfield Horseshoe can be done from the door and there are many delightful valley rambles in the immediate area. Wordsworth lived just up the road taking much of his inspiration from the surrounding area and the property actually borders Dora's Field with its riot of Spring daffodils.
This topsy-turvy cottage is thought to date back to the 17th century when it was formerly the coach house for the private residence known as Ivy Cottage and which later became the Glen Rothay Inn. Its rather quirky interior and interesting layout retains fine character features with an abundance of beams and old oak lintels complemented by new bathrooms, kitchen and central heating.
Front door entrance into downstairs hallway...plenty of room to de-camp and hang up your outdoor gear. There are three bedrooms on the ground floor - a good sized single to the left and two further bedrooms (one a double with king-size bed and the other a twin). These two rooms can be interconnected as a family 'suite' or alternatively used separately with the twin room having its own outside entrance and en-suite shower room. Family bathroom (bath with shower over, basin and wc).
Upstairs you arrive in the spacious living room with its wealth of beams, log burner (TV with Freeview, DVD). There is a separate dining area reached down a few steps and this connects with the newly fitted kitchen giving you ample space for family meals and relaxing. Door to patio from dining area. A further en-suite double bedroom with king-size bed is also on this floor (bath, separate large shower, basin and wc).
The property has been newly decorated and furnished throughout with fitted carpets and has lots of character charm.
Outside: Parking at the property for two/three cars. Patio area off the dining room. The property is tucked away in a corner of the Glen Rothay Hotel grounds being screened by tall shrubs and conifers but handy for bar and restaurant facilities and the cottage comes with the added attraction of extra services which you can enjoy during your stay.

"Independent Luxury in the Lakes"
Over 4 days of the May Bank Holiday weekend, I took a small group of overseas friends to the Lake District and we stayed at the wonderful Coach House, situated in the grounds of the Glenrothay Hotel. The Coach House was only refurbished a couple of years ago and so was in excellent condition, sparkling clean and comfortably appointed. There were plenty of beds and easily accommodated our party of seven. Everything was provided in the fully modernised kitchen and so cooking was a joy. However, on our first night, we took advantage of supper provided in the excellent Badger Bar - a real-ale pub tucked inside the ground floor of the Glenrothay Hotel. The food was inexpensive and delicious - as was the range of local beers on the pump.
One of our happiest memories was arriving back at the Coach House after a hard days walking on the hills and lighting a fire in the living room - even though we did have to go foraging for logs in the woods nearby. All in all, a great place to stay in the Lakes.
