Shepherd's Cottage - Upstairs
Taking the old stone steps that leads upstairs, wind your way up to the changing room. An oak framed wall and wardrobe on one side, dressing table on the other, a relaxing space to get ready in the morning.
Through the doorway you enter the heavenly bathroom - the roll top cast iron bath is double ended with plenty of room for a candle lit soak for two. There's a large separate shower too with lovely toiletries from the Bath House to use, along with huge towels and fluffy robes to relax in. The window overlooks both the cottage garden and the fells beyond.
In the bedroom stands a magnificent four poster kingsize bed, made by Richard from reclaimed timber. Climb in, gaze at the 400 year old oak beamed rafters and drift off to sleep on the super Sealy mattress, made here in Cumbria. The view from bed lasts for miles, all the way to Blencathra in fact, 30 miles away! Underfoot you'll find locally made Herdwick wool carpets, one of the area's traditional breeds of sheep.
Altogether a great place to escape.
If you have family there's an additional tiny room for your little one, just big enough for a travel cot or z-bed, both of which can be provided. The sloped ceiling makes it a fab hideaway for youngsters.
