Steeped in character this charming Lakeland cottage offers all the ingredients of a Lake District holiday at any time of year. The property is much loved by its caring owners who have retained the original character features whilst creating a home from home in the 21st century. Troutbeck Village is home to some of our most ancient and picturesque buildings and much has been written about the local architecture. Orchard Cottage itself is known to date back to at least 1643 as the dated 'Court Cupboard' in the sitting room shows.
Guests will enjoy the location...two good pubs within strolling distance, hill walks and rambles from the door including the well trodden path from Troutbeck over Jenkins Crag and down to Waterhead. You will be well placed for cruises on Lakes Windermere or Ullswater, and with Ambleside close-by for interesting local shopping and a well-stocked grocery at Troutbeck Bridge, you really will have everything you need.
Accommodation: The covered porch leads to the front door. The cosy sitting/dining room has deep-set windows, beams, oak panelling and a fine court cupboard as well as a spice cupboard and a separate 'bible' cupboard set into the wall (flat screen TV, DVD, wi-fi broadband & log burning stove). A door opens into the kitchen and there is a back door to the side lane. Upstairs you will find two bedrooms, a master double with king-sized bed and a further twin room. Newly refurbished fully tiled family bathroom (bath with shower over, basin & wc).
The cottage is warm and cosy with oil central heating. Furnishings are comfortable with fitted carpets throughout living rooms and bedrooms and there are lots of personal touches.
Outside: The tiny front garden catches the afternoon and evening sun (garden bench provided). Parking for one car is immediately outside the cottage. Few hundred yards to pub and shop. Troutbeck Bridge 2 miles, Ambleside 4 miles.
