Impressive three-bedroom property set over three floors

The owners have skilfully created a beautiful holiday home perfect for quality time with friends or family, combining original character with contemporary facilities, subtle colour schemes, and plush furnishings. Park at the back of the cottage, walk up to the back door, and step into an immaculate, contemporary fitted kitchen where you can prepare all your homemade meals with ease. Then, head through to your large and bright open-plan sitting and dining area. Admire the natural light flooding into this dual aspect room as you relax with a favourite drink on your stylish sofa. You'll appreciate the beautiful, underfloor heated, slate floor and a gorgeous hearth with its wood-burning stove, offering a welcoming warmth in the winter months.

Climb to the first floor to find two tastefully presented double bedrooms. Both are equally beautiful and provide perfect sleeping spots for the couples in your group. You'll also find the family bathroom and a separate WC on this level for your convenience.

Move up to the second floor and discover a charming, spacious twin room. Or, venture outside to soak up the scenery from your very own private patio garden.

There is so much outdoor adventure to discover right on your doorstep

Sitting at the heart of the Lake District National Park, you won’t have to venture far to find walking and cycling routes aplenty. Whether it’s a low-level circular route or an adventurous hike up to the high fells, there’s a route for every ability!

Take a short stroll from the cottage to Chesters, a stylish café and shop on the riverbank, or to The Skelwith Bridge Hotel for eating out. The popular restaurant, The Drunken Duck is conveniently located just 1.5 miles down the road. Elterwater and the Britannia Inn are also nearby, just 2 miles away. For more amenities, you can reach the village of Chapel Stile by car, where you’ll find another café, a pub, and a shop for picking up essentials. The town of Ambleside is only 2.5 miles away.

This is the perfect place to head off up the fells, around tarns and lakes, or along the riverbanks. Simply pack your picnic and head out of the door! Brathay View Cottage makes an exceptional choice for your escape to this beautiful area of England.
