Description

Wayside cottage is very warm and welcoming. Although it is a very old house - a Grade II Listed Building, almost four hundred years old with numerous exposed oak beams and slate floors - it has been modernised to a high standard of comfort whilst retaining its period charm; many of our visitors return year after year. The cottage is situated in the hamlet of Clappersgate, near the head of Lake Windermere, which is very convenient for exploring the central Lake District. The pretty villages of Hawkshead, Grasmere, Bowness, Keswick and Coniston are a short drive away, while the many shops, restaurants, pubs and cinema of Ambleside are only a short walk away. It makes a good base for a walking holiday with many fine walks from the door. The accommodation is well laid out and sleeps up to six adults in one double and two twin bedrooms.

From the door the entrance hall, which has a traditional floor of slate flagstones, gives access to the lounge, the spacious kitchen/ dining room and the downstairs shower room with w/c.The lounge - which has fell views - has a leather suite with seating for six, digital TV/DVD/ and a log-burning stove set in the original feature fireplace.

The farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room has recently been completely refitted to a high standard with oak units, granite worktops and Neff appliances. It has a slate floor and is very well equipped with a full range of modern appliances including fridge-freezer, dishwasher, double electric fan oven, dual gas/electric hob, extractor fan, microwave and a radio/CD/tape player. The large dining table is ideal for family meals.

On the first floor are two bedrooms, both with original fireplaces and furnished with antique pine, one double and one with twin beds. The double bedroom has exposed beams and fell views of Wansfell Pike.The bathroom, with shaver point, hand basin, toilet and electric shower over a magnificent, very large, antique iron bath, is also on this floor. A second staircase leads to the third bedroom on the second floor. It has exposed roof beams, twin pine beds and a TV, with DVD.

The cottage has gas central heating throughout and all rooms except the cloakroom, have radiators with individual thermostatic controls. There is a secure log store with room to store bicycles. Wayside Cottage has reserved parking for two cars in a shared private car park. For loading/ unloading there is temporary parking on the pavement outside the door. A well behaved pet is welcome but it must be kept downstairs and not allowed into the bedrooms.

What's included?

We want our holiday cottages to be a 'home for home'. All the beds are made up ready for you, towels are included so no need to bring those, and shower mats are also provided. Two tea towels and a set of oven gloves/oven cloth will be in the kitchen along with a starter pack that includes: washing up liquid, kitchen roll, toilet roll, basic cleaning products, a bin bag in each bin and a few dishwasher tabs. This is just to 'start you off'; you will need to buy your own once these have run out.

Fire Pack / Logs available to purchase form the Good Life Office.

Reviews

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Wayside. Wayside is a characterful cottage with a lovely inglenook fireplace. Despite its proximity to the roadside saw goldfinches, blue tits, coal tits and a tree creeper come to the bird feeder and heard a tawny owl each night. One of the best equipped cottages we have stayed in and loved the little touches of soaps and lotions in the bathrooms. Also appreciated milk delivered daily.Mrs C E Lanham - 25th March 2016
This is the second time we have used the good life cottages to book a break and both have been excellent , with the standard of cottage and location..Mr A Ninian - 19th February 2016
