This attractive Grade II listed period property has been given a stylish and contemporary update to create a relaxing retreat in the Eden District village of Shap.
Beautifully-styled throughout, this lovely Grade II-listed period home in the village of Shap sleeps six people over three bedrooms and welcomes one canine companion. Overflowing with style and charm, it’s the ideal village retreat for small families or groups of friends who want to spend their days canoeing or kayaking in the Lake District National Park, and their evenings relaxing by the wood burner-effect gas fire in the living room.
Step inside and you’ll find a grand hallway. Kick off your shoes and head through to the welcoming farmhouse kitchen/diner to cook up a storm for your loved ones. Gather everyone around the large oak dining table for dinner, or step outside into the private garden and patio and dine alfresco. After dinner, pour yourself a glass of wine and watch the stars come out, or make your way to the lounge to slip onto a sofa and catch up on your favourite TV shows. With its large picture window, original features and sumptuous furnishings, this is a truly lovely place to relax. If you crave a little time to yourself, you’ll discover a wonderful king-size room with an arm chair and country views on the second-floor. When it’s time for bed there are another two gorgeous bedrooms on the first-floor.
Take a trip to Lowther Castle (7 miles) to stroll around the dramatic ruins, explore the magnificent gardens and let the kids burn some energy on the adventure playground. Alternatively, head to Pooley Bridge (11 miles) to take a trip on one of the famous Ullswater Steamers, which have been in service for over 160 years. Or enjoy a day out in Penrith (10 miles), where you can browse the local galleries and stop to smell the flowers in the rose garden in Castle Park.
