Coombs View is a lovely three-bedroom cottage with beautiful views, approximately one mile from the village of Armathwaite in the Eden Valley.
The property has a very high standard of finish with a large sitting room area presenting a beautiful inglenook fireplace, drawing focus into the room, with its aesthetically pleasing exposed stone wall behind.
An archway interlinks the open, spacious living room that features a baby grand piano and extra comfy sofa to sink into.
Sit here surrounded by classic, antique furnishings and enjoy a musical afternoon together with the family.
Keep yourselves cosy and warm by the wood-burner or head to the open-plan kitchen/ diner and sit by the toasty Range cooker while you enjoy an evening meal.
The utility room features a woodburning stove, so you won't be feeling a chill during your stay.
Upstairs there are three lovely bedrooms, one featuring a grand double four-poster bed with wooden detailing and curtains that wrap around, leaving you heading to bed feeling like royalty.
There are Velux windows in the bathroom and in the smallest of the three double rooms, letting in lots of light in the day and views of the stars at night. A cot is also available.
Outside there is a courtyard area and secure gated on-site parking.
This is a very dog friendly cottage with luxury kennels offering doggy day care, and a pet bereavement facility on site. Preparations are underway for the construction of an agility course. Dog bowls and spare leads are available for use.
