Brathay View Cottage

Ref: 2035

  • Sleeps: 6

This charming Lakeland stone built cottage is one of a short terrace of four in a picture postcard setting in the Langdale Valley overlooking the River Brathay in the hamlet of Skelwith Bridge. This is a perfect spot for relaxing in the true heart of the Lake District and we are sure you will enjoy the fine walking that can be done from the door.

The owners have carefully restored the cottage whilst retaining a beautiful mix of character with all modern facilities, subtle colour schemes and comfortable furnishings. We are sure this will be a very popular holiday venue in any season of the year.

The cottage is on three floors with two double bedrooms on the first floor together with the family bathroom (shower over bath and basin). Separate wc.

At the top of the cottage you will find a charming spacious twin room with sloping roof lines. The cottage has underfloor and electric heating downstairs and electric heating upstairs. Slate floors downstairs and stripped floorboards with rugs, carpets elsewhere.

Outside: There is a charming cottage garden overlooking the river with room to eat out of doors to the front. Rear garden with parking for two cars behind the cottage. Secure bike store. A few seconds stroll to Chesters, a stylish cafe and shop, on the river bank and also to The Skelwith Bridge Hotel for eating out. Elterwater and Britannia Inn 2 miles.  Ambleside 2 and half miles.This is a perfect place from which to head off up the fells, round tarns and lakes, or by river banks. Simply pack your picnic and head out of the door!
