If you are looking to visit the Northern Lakes and fells this terraced cottage, adjacent to the owners home, is ideally positioned. Picturesque Ullswater less than 10 minutes away in a car and Penrith only 5 minutes away. The owners’ have lovingly and tastefully restored this mid terraced cottage retaining the character of the original features but bringing a contemporary feel which will be comfortable for families and groups of friends to relax and enjoy. The living room hosts a cosy wood burner where the fire surround includes the latin quote ‘Domus Dulcis Domus’, translated this means ‘Home Sweet Home’ and this is exactly what Bumblebee Nook aims to offer. It is located at the end of a short lane, which is the perfect haven if you require a quiet and peaceful location, whilst still having easy access from the M6. It is also on a bus route if you fancy jumping on a bus and leaving all the driving to someone else. With the benefit of being south east facing, the front of the cottage has the sunshine for most of the day and into the evening, perfect for a glass of wine outside, while soaking up the atmosphere at the front of the property, with open fields and Blencathra in the distance. From the rear of the house open fields can be viewed with the peaks of the Pennines in the distance.
From the front door there are numerous walks to enjoy, which include the River Eamont where the historical sites of King Arthur’s round table and Mayburgh Henge can be viewed. For good walking, the fells nearby include the High Street range, 5 miles away and Helvellyn only 10 miles away.
