Orchard Cottage is secluded and set in open countryside adjoining the owners' home. Beyond the cottage garden, the property enjoys panoramic views of the local countryside and the distant Lakeland fells.
The pine kitchen leads into a light and spacious living area with pine ceilings and maple floors. A feature fireplace made with local green slate houses a wood-burning stove: ideal for those cosy nights by the fire.
At the other end of the cottage is the dining area, where meals can be enjoyed overlooking the apple orchard and views. The double bedroom opens onto the wooden sun deck, complete with garden furniture, which looks out across the property's private field.
With a double bed the cottage is ideally suited for a couple. However, there is a sofa bed which could accommodate a second person or a child. The property includes a small wet room, 4' wide x 3' deep, with toilet, shower, and small wash basin. Please see our photographs to appreciate the layout and proportions and do not hesitate to send us an email if you have any questions.
Orchard Cottage offers free WiFi. Linen is provided as are hand towels and tea towels; we ask that you bring your own bath towels. Logs for the fire are provided. Laundry facilities are available should you require.

'We loved the sunny mornings in the cottage and the cosy nights by the fire! You made us feel among friends and we looked forward to returning each evening after the days adventures. You've created a very special environment to which we will certainly return.' Mr Sigmund, New Jersey, USA

Orchard Cottage is an excellent base for walking, sightseeing or just unwinding.
