Cosy comfort for six in the beating heart of Lakeland!
This is an elegant and original slate-built farmhouse property that will appeal to everyone's internal lakelover. The owners have sympathetically upgraded the property to the highest modern standards, while retaining the charmingly old-world character of Stone Arthur Cottage, and there is everything you could ask for here to provide the perfect Lakeland getaway!
As soon you walk up to the gothic cathedral-style doors, you can tell this is a special and thoroughly authentic property. From the archaic lintel above the wood-burner and the wonderful thick beams that line the ceiling in the living-room, to the beautiful floors and furniture echoed throughout this excellent property, antique wooden grandeur is everywhere!
High quality, high comfort real leather sofas let you recline in luxuriant bliss near the blazing wood-burner, and the wonderfully spacious yet homely country kitchen is open to the living-room, and makes a great spot in which to enjoy those all important walkers' breakfasts before you hit the hills. The bedrooms are generous and refined rooms, with the most wonderfully ornate and lavish antique wooden bedsteads, and ensure you wake well refreshed each morning to tackle the days activities, and the superb modern bathroom facilities will also help energise you into top form.
Views to Grasmere lake itself and the fells all around make your cottage a real delight to stay in, and the location could hardly be better, perfectly central in the Lakes and offering a winning combination of adventure in all directions and blissful tranquility. The most glorious scenery anywhere in England is all about you, and it goes without saying that the walking is second to none. Smaller fells like Loughrigg and Helm Crag make for outstandingly beautiful rambles, and there are plenty of larger mountains to conquer as well as a multitude of leveller walks by the lake shores.
This is Wordsworth country too, of course, so the cultural heritage is truly fascinating, and you can even walk up Greenhead Ghyll from Stone Arthur Cottage, and see the very sheepfold that inspired the poem 'Michael'. And we fully recommend a visit to at least one of the homes of the famed poet; Rydal Mount, Allen Bank and Dove Cottage are all open for your enjoyment.
People come the Lakes to physically and spiritually restore themselves, and Stone Arthur Cottage is the perfect base for a break that fully relaxes the body and stirs the soul with a little of the magic that inspired all that poetry!
