Smithy Cottage

A traditional Cumbrian cottage with a light and airy interior, Smithy Cottage is just across the road from the award-winning village pub in Tirril and midway between lively Penrith and the stunning landscapes of Ullswater.

Sleeping six and retaining bags of characterful charm with a contemporary finish, Smithy Cottage is perfect for families and friends who want to explore all the delights of the Lake District.

The sitting room is lovely and spacious, with a cosy open fireplace, traditional beams and plenty of comfortable seating. The separate dining room has French doors leading out to the really pretty garden and the fully equipped modern kitchen opens out onto a conservatory - the perfect spot for a glass of wine or a craft beer at the end of a busy day in the Lakes. There are wood floors everywhere, making it ideal for dogs. Upstairs are three bedrooms, a double bedroom with TV and en-suite shower room with hand basin and WC, a twin bedroom, also with en-suite shower room with hand basin and WC, and a children's twin bedroom. There's also a fabulous boutique-style family bathroom, with a claw foot freestanding roll top bath, hand basin and WC.

Step out from the conservatory and you're in a picture perfect enclosed cottage garden with views over the open countryside - it's perfect for children and dogs to roam freely. To the front of the cottage, there's off road parking for two cars.

You can walk across the picturesque village green to the local pub, or take a short drive to the lively little village of Pooley Bridge, which sits right on the shores of Ullswater. For shopping, bars and restaurants, Penrith is just a 10 minute drive away, as is Lowther castle and its wonderful gardens and the Rheghed Visitor and Discovery Centre.

Take the scenic 20 minute drive to the beautiful market town of Keswick, or enjoy the beauties of the Kirkstone Pass as you visit all the family attractions of Windermere and the retail parks at Kendal. With a swimming pool and cinema nearby and fell walks virtually on the doorstep, there's plenty for all the family to enjoy.

With its comfortable accommodation and superb location, Smithy Cottage is the ideal location for a family or friends to enjoy a break in the Lake District at any time of year.
