A cosy cottage located in the very popular area of Skelwith Bridge in the beautiful Lake District. This well-maintained property is perfect for families and friends looking to relax, unwind and have immediate access to the great outdoors. This Skelwith Bridge cottage is nestled discreetly amidst similar properties and is perfect for those wanting to forget the car and enjoy the plentiful walking and cycling this area has to offer. Benefiting from three welcoming bedrooms; perfect for relaxing and dreaming of what adventures are still to come, this cottage near Ambleside is a wonderful holiday base.
