The Property
Rosemary Cottage is a charming, period cottage that dates back to the mid 1700s and sits within the beautiful Lake District National Park. The property has been extensively refurbished by the current owners to provide spacious and well-presented accommodation with an abundance of original features that are now combined with all the requirements for modern-day living. The cottage sits in a stunning rural setting and enjoys views over glorious open countryside yet is within easy reach of many local villages.

The front door opens into a flagged entrance hall that leads through to the main reception hall to the rear of the cottage with double doors opening out to the garden. The main reception rooms are arranged to the rear to appreciate the views over the garden and open countryside beyond. The delightful sitting room has a combination of exposed and painted stonework, ceiling beams and benefits from a multi-fuel stove set on a stone hearth. Off the sitting room there is a small study with a picture window offering open rural views. To the other side of the hall there is a formal dining room which has stone flooring and leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is fitted with a range of units, 1 bowl sink and drainer, electric range-style cooker, has an integrated fridge, is plumbed for a dishwasher and offers ample room for a table and chairs for everyday dining. There is a useful larder off the kitchen. A generous utility room, with two windows to the front and practical tiled floor, is fitted with a range of units, single sink and drainer, is plumbed for a washing machine, has space for a tumble dryer and has doors to the kitchen and front entrance hall. A cloakroom/WC with wash hand basin and WC completes the ground floor accommodation.

Stairs from the sitting room lead up to the first floor with a charming reading area on the half landing. The master bedroom enjoys elevated views over the rear garden and benefits from an en-suite shower room with shower, wash hand basin and WC. There are two further double bedrooms located to the front, one with en-suite shower room and the other with a range of fitted wardrobes and en-suite 'Jack and Jill' bathroom with access from the landing. The bathroom is fitted with a bath with shower over, wash hand basin and WC. The fourth double bedroom is located to the rear of the cottage with views to the side overlooking the beck.

Externally
Rosemary Cottage is accessed from the road through a gated entrance to a gravelled parking and turning area at the front of the house with space for several cars.

To the rear there is a well-maintained cottage garden with generous lawned area, mature borders, pond and productive vegetable garden and greenhouse. A gravelled terrace is well-placed to take full advantage of the tranquil, rural setting and enjoy the views and wildlife.
