Going through Penny Rigg's front door you enter into a Lakeland slate hallway, perfect for leaving walking gear. The slate floor extends into the warm and welcoming sitting room with its large comfy leather sofa, ideally positioned right in front of the wood-burning stove. No fighting over who gets that and who gets the comfy armchairs. As well as the TV and DVD, there's an MP3 docking station and Wi-Fi access.

The well-appointed country kitchen benefits from microwave, dishwasher, electric cooker, full-size fridge/freezer, washing machine & tumble dryer. There's also a dining table for 4 situated at the far end of the kitchen.

A traditional rear porch leads out from the kitchen into the rear courtyard, the perfect place for morning coffees.

First floor
Upstairs is oak-floored; the double bedroom enjoys fell views towards the rear of the property whilst the twin/super king room face the front towards Grizedale Forest, both enjoy modern en-suites with no expense spared.

The cottage is very comfortable and the quality of the furnishing and decor is excellent. The bathrooms are amazing and the portholes in the bedrooms for charging the iPads etc are a really good idea. I shall be using the cottage again.
