Alan Bank Cottage is tucked away in a private courtyard, and set back from the main farm yard and activity. It is the perfect place to enjoy and explore the surrounding area, yet still maintains that rural retreat. The traditional large rooms that are typical of a Cumbrian farm house offer plenty of space and comfort for everyone. The living room has ample comfy seating to enjoy the warmth of the open fire on those cooler evenings, whilst the dining room leads to the large kitchen, perfect for preparing that hearty meal for everyone. Just off from here is a delightful conservatory, a quiet place to enjoy your morning coffee or sit and lose yourself in a good book. To the first floor there are three bedrooms comfortably sleeping up to six adults, with a family bathroom.
