Bramble Cottage is up on The Banks, in one of the highest areas of the village. A traditional small Lakeland slate mid-terraced cottage built 150 years ago, originally to home mine workers, now a quaint and comfortable holiday let, full of character.
Ideally situated this cosy cottage enjoys immediate access onto the surrounding open fells and the delights of the village are less than a 10 minute stroll downhill. The cottage enjoys fantastic views from both its cosy sitting room and the master bedroom which both look out over Coniston Water and the rolling Grizedale hills beyond.
From the hallway there's a cosy living area with comfortable seating, TV, DVD and log fire. Slate flag floors add to the charm of this traditional cottage. At the end of the room tucked away is a dining table for four and a hatch through to the large modern kitchen which benefits from a gas cooker, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer & washer/drier. A downstairs shower room and WC can also be found at the end of the kitchen, perfect for cutting down morning queues.
Stairs (steepish) lead up to the wooden floored landing, two bedrooms & house bathroom. The double at the front enjoys astonishing views of Coniston Water and the fells beyond.
Bedroom 1 - king size bed & lake view.
Bedroom 2 - twin single beds.
Bathroom with WC & bath.
To the front of the cottage a bench outside the front door allows you to take in the scenery over a cup of coffee or glass of wine.
To the rear of the cottage is a small paved yard with bistro style table and chairs, an excellent area to sit and enjoy a morning coffee.
