The property

In Troutbeck Bridge, Cumbria, The Old Post Office is a Grade II listed apartment. Built in 1642, this ground-floor flat preserves much of its original character, including beamed ceilings and a woodburning gas furnace, and is just a short drive from Lake Windermere. When you arrive, you'll be greeted with an off-road parking space before entering the open-plan living area, which is well-presented with a contemporary kitchen. The kitchen includes an electric oven and stove, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, washing machine, and dishwasher, as well as a dining table where you may share meals. Relax on the sofa or in the armchair while watching TV and appreciating the warmth of the log burner gas fire. While your canine buddy stretches out on the patio, you can view the rural setting from the furniture, and you may utilise the BBQ for alternate cooking arrangements. Retire inside as the evening draws to a close and soak in a bubble bath or rinse the day away in the overhead shower. There are two light and airy bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with a zip/link twin bed for adaptable sleeping configurations. Before a day of exploring, wake up to a warm cup of coffee and use the cooking facilities to conjure up a home-cooked breakfast. The Old Post Office is an exquisite refuge in Cumbria's countryside. Note: This property can be booked with Ref, 1110328 together sleeping up to 8 guests.
