The house has 7 bedrooms, 3 bath/shower rooms, 3 sitting rooms (with 8 sofas), and a huge kitchen with a 16-seater table. It's surprisingly cosy for such a large house - centrally heated and part double-glazed, there's an amazing open fire (with a window over the mantelpiece) and an unlimited supply of wood and coal.

It has all the facilities you would expect from a 4-star property, plus a few you might not.

The garden's not bad either! There is an acre of garden with lawns, shrubs, chairs, benches, swings and a play area for younger children. So, if you’re looking for somewhere special, somewhere you can enjoy with family and friends, a place where you can kick back, unwind and relax, in a picture perfect setting, then this superbly equipped, charming Lakeland house might just be your ideal location.
