Description Beautifully located in the popular Grizedale forest roughly midway between Lake Windermere and Coniston Water this attractive stone and slate built end of terrace property is an idyllic holiday cottage in the stunning Lake District National Park.

Currently a successful holiday let with The Lakeland Cottage Company ( the present owners let the accommodation only as two bedrooms reserving the en-suite bedroom solely for their own use when they visit this idyllic retreat. Enjoying a peaceful setting, interrupted only by birds song and the sound of the tumbling waters of Force Beck below, this imaginatively designed home was converted from a former agricultural barn in approximately 2004 and enjoys a lovely south facing position in this small Hamlet.

The spacious and well balanced accommodation is spread over three storeys and briefly includes two double bedrooms, an en-suite shower room and a separate shower room on the lower floor, a superbly proportioned bedroom and bathroom on the middle floor and a delightful open plan living space and kitchen area which encompasses the entire top floor. There is a small mezzanine area above which doubles as a sleeping platform or an intriguing den for the kids.

There is an easily maintained seating area on the southern side of the barn which enjoys lovely views and there is car parking provision. The property can be utilised as a holiday let or weekend retreat and is not an opportunity to be missed and viewing is highly recommended.
