Brook Cottage is a delightful semi-detached property, in an equally appealing village, offering a combination of a traditional cosiness with contemporary design and fittings. The result is a property of charm and character with a contemporary twist. This spacious cottage offers a comfortable living room with an additional mezzanine area accessed by a spiral staircase, giving views over the garden. A convenient ground floor wet room and twin bedroom are complemented by a first floor kingsize bedroom and a family bathroom. The well-equipped kitchen/dining room offers a bright airy spot where you can enjoy a meal surrounded by your loved ones. The garden is paved and enhanced with mature rockeries, birds and even the occasional pheasant.
Askham is a traditional Lakeland village away from the hustle and bustle of the busier northern Lake District towns and villages, but with all the popular and much-loved tourist destinations close at hand. With a village shop, pubs, and the bonus of a public outdoor swimming pool, Askham retains an authentic community feel with picturesque cottages sitting prettily amidst the two village greens. Within walking distance, Askham Hall and Lowther Castle offer stunning architecture, brimming with local history and delightful gardens. A short drive away you will find Lake Ullswater, with steamer rides, as well as the popular villages of Pooley Bridge and Glenridding, which are well worth a visit. From the doorstep of the cottage there is easy access to the scenic fells surrounding the area, offering walkers a multitude of routes. To the east lies the picturesque and peaceful Eden Valley which is popular with cyclists and walkers for its pretty villages with traditional pubs and cafés. To the south is Haweswater with its lakeside path and stunning scenery. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
