Harbour House

This gorgeous traditional cottage is located in the picturesque village of Motherby. With only 7 miles to Penrith, and only a 15-minute drive to Lake Ullswater and Keswick, this cottage couldn?t be more perfectly placed to explore the beauties and attractions of the Lake District.

Harbour House is a comfortable and welcoming holiday home, with an amazing feature fireplace made from sandstone, and a wood burning stove. Add in incredible views from your own private garden and the amount of attractions within easy reach, and this is a great place for a family holiday.

The lounge is spacious and comfortable with that stunning feature fireplace to enjoy, and a large flat screen TV, with a BluRay player if the weather isn?t good. The cosy kitchen/diner is beautifully finished and tiled, and a really pleasant place to eat with all the mod cons you?d expect, and you have a utility/drying room with a washing machine. Through the utility room, there?s a lovely wet room, with a shower and underfloor heating.

Upstairs, the master double bedroom has a king-sized bed and incredible views over the countryside, and there?s a pretty twin bedroom that?s perfect for the kids. A family bathroom with a shower over the bath completes the first floor.

There?s a private garden to enjoy, with dining furniture so you can eat outside and take in the incredible views.

You don?t have to go far if you want to enjoy a drink or pub food, as the pub is within walking distance. You?re also very close to the pretty villages of Penruddock and Greystoke, with beautiful village inns for home-cooked meals and local beers and ales. And with peaceful country walks right on your doorstep, you?ll be able to walk off all that delicious food.

Further afield, you can easily visit Penrith with its shops and restaurants, the Castle and Museum and Beacon Hill. Lake Ullswater and Keswick are a quick 15 minute drive away, for more shopping, museums, parks and golfing, and of course, water sports on the lake. If you fancy a hike, you?re close to the Caldbeck Fells and Blencathra, with stunning countryside to explore.

This lovely house, set in such a pretty village, is perfect for a quiet family getaway, with so much to do and wonderful fells and hills to explore.
