This cosy cottage offers a romantic retreat for couples wanting to explore both the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks. La’al Yam (which is Cumbrian for ‘little home) is a delightful stone-built, terraced cottage in the sought after hamlet of Millthorp. Surrounded by fells and open countryside it’s the ideal escape for couples wanting peace and quiet in a comfortable and quirky home from home. The terraced cottage dates back to the late 1800s and it has been renovated to a good standard throughout. From the outside it looks like many other traditional cottages, but inside it is truly unique and the owner has put a lot of thought into the décor and furnishings. The open plan living space, on the ground floor, has beautiful beamed ceilings and wooden floors, as well as a fireplace with a wood burner, perfect for those dark, winter nights. The rich colours of the soft furnishings contrast beautifully with the clean white walls and make the room feel very inviting. The more modern touches include a flat screen Smart TV and Wi-Fi. The kitchen area, which has a table and benches for dining, is well-equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, fridge and separate freezer. Part way up the staircase is a stable door which opens out onto a pretty patio area which has a built-in barbecue and lovely views of the surrounding fells. On the first floor you will find the master bedroom and a gorgeous bathroom with claw-foot bath and separate shower. A narrow, steep stair leads up from the landing onto the second floor where you will find an additional double bedroom. Nestled into the eaves, this bedroom also has TV with DVD player. Show more
A perfect destination for those who love the great outdoors, there are lots of lovely walks right from the doorstep and there are also plenty of opportunities for cycling, fishing and hiking. La’al Yam is just half a mile from the market town of Sedbergh, which apart from appearing in the Doomsday Book, is also famous for its school which started in 1525. Sedbergh is also proud to be England’s ‘book town’. Today the town has some lovely shops, great pubs and plenty of places to eat and drink. There is lots to see and do, all against the backdrop of the beautiful Howgill Fells. Just outside Sedbergh is Fairfield Mill where the wool industry once thrived. Why not pop along and check out its heritage, as well as enjoying a coffee and something to eat in its café. Although a Cumbrian town, Sedbergh is actually within the boundaries of the Yorkshire Dales, so you have two national parks right on the doorstep. Windermere is just 16 miles away. Other places to discover within easy driving distance include Dentdale, Wensleydale and Swaledale, Mallerstang and Pendragon Castle, Ingleton, Kirkby Lonsdale, Kendal, Ullswater and Keswick. Beach 20½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
