Property code: SZ471

Striking cottage, deep in the heart of Eskdale, with fascinating walking opportunities in every direction. Take a ride on a steam train through the picturesque valley or head to the dramatic Cumbrian coast to discover remote beaches and quaint villages.

Surrounded by a spectacular landscape of mountains and forest, this romantic bolthole is the ideal place to escape from it all. Snuggle up next to the roaring wood burner after a long fell walk or unwind in the vast garden, sipping wine on the sun loungers. Walkers will be in their element, with Scafell Pike just 9 miles away and numerous smaller walks directly from your front door. Giggle Alley Forest (0.5 miles) is a great place for an afternoon stroll, particularly through the magical Japanese Garden. You can’t come to Eskdale without a ride on the steam railway, which carries you through the National Park to Ravenglass (6.5 miles), a coastal village with bags of seafaring character and charm.

Step inside the stone cottage and into the impressive lounge, which features statement furniture and fabulous exposed beams adorning the ceiling. Relax on the leather sofa in front of the warming wood burner to watch your favourite programme on the SkyTV. Three steps lead from here to the kitchen/diner. This light and bright space is full of character, with elegant slate flooring and the cottage’s original bread oven. Rustle up a tasty dinner for two in the electric oven or on the gas hob, to share together at the round dining table. In the kitchen/diner you’ll also find the fridge/freezer, microwave and handy washing machine. Stairs lead from the lounge to the mezzanine king-size bedroom. This room oozes personality, thanks to the fabulous exposed beams, and has lovely views out over the garden to the countryside beyond. The room has a sloping ceiling, so just watch out for the restricted head height in some areas. The first floor also houses the bathroom, which has a beautiful bath to soak in at the end of the day, as well as a handheld shower and WC. Again, watch out for the restricted head height in this room.

The outside space at this cottage is quite spectacular. You’ll have a choice of two patios to sit on, a firepit where you can toast marshmallows, sun loungers and a huge lawn for your canine friends to run around on. There’s also ample off-road parking for your car.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Eastbourne is a bustling seaside resort on the south coast of England. It has been a popular British holiday destination since Victorian times. The town’s attractive pier and promenade is still a major draw for visitors in search of a traditional seaside experience – you can enjoy a long, level stroll along the sea front whilst enjoying an ice cream or some fish and chips. The pebble beach is a good place to park a deckchair and take in the sun, or paddle in the sea. Great for family breaks and as a romantic getaway, the town has much to offer all visitors. The South Downs Way starts in town and extends 100 miles eastwards to Winchester – one of the first stops on the National Trail are the imposing chalk cliffs of the iconic Beachy Head, a few miles to the east of town. Eastbourne is a big hit with train enthusiasts as it’s home to the Spa Valley Railway and the Miniature Steam Railway. Historians may like Redoubt Fort and The Observatory Science Museum (in nearby Herstmonceux). For all-weather attractions for children why not investigate Fort Fun or the indoor Motcombe Swimming Pool? Further afield, and within a one-hour drive to the west is Brighton, with its own pier, wonderful array of shops and eateries. To the west is Bexhill-on-Sea with its impressive art gallery, the De La Warr Pavillion, and long seafront. Just beyond is the old fishing town of Hastings with its new award-winning designer pier, ancient castle and fishing shanty town.
