Dash Cottage sleeps 4 in a double and a twin
Dash is a conventionally arranged cottage that looks out towards Skiddaw, with views from
the double bedroom towards Bassenthwaite Lake. Dash provides spacious accommodation
for four people.
On the ground floor, the entrance leads into the open-plan kitchen/dining, complete with dining table and chairs, and a fully fitted kitchen. An open arch leads through to the lounge where settees and chairs are arranged around the TV.
Dog-leg stairs lead up to the bedrooms; a double to the side and a twin bedroom to the rear – both views views towards Skiddaw. The double bedroom has an en-suite WC. There is a family bathroom, with bath and mixer shower over, washbasin and WC.
Immediately in front of the cottage is a picnic bench and barbecue. The bird table attracts a wide variety of birds and Red Squirrels.
