Description Thorn Cottage is a truly delightful home offering well balanced accommodation which is blessed with plenty of that increasingly elusive character which is such a feature of traditional Lakeland homes dating from the early 19th Century.

From the instant that you step over the threshold into the entrance porch, with its stained glass windows and attractive tiled floor, you feel a warm and welcoming home embrace you. There are beamed ceilings, stone flagged floors, traditional pine doors, open fires and solid fuel stoves and a Rayburn in the family kitchen all of which contribute to a lovely atmosphere. The inclusion of a large en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom and a utility room to supplement the recently re-fitted kitchen are evidence that the 21st Century does still have something to offer by way of improvement on such traditional charms.

There are lovely views and with the traditional Lakeland inn "The Farmers Arms" just a short stroll away there is also a lovely fare on hand too!

The property stands in pleasant gardens with car parking provided on the neighbouring lay-by which is used largely by residents and Thorn Cottage is a successful holiday let with Cumbrian Cottages.

This delightful home is highly recommended for viewing for anyone seeking a delightfully presented traditional home with good accommodation.
