Woodside Cottage is part of an imaginative barn conversion within the well-maintained grounds of Merewood Lodge. It is located between Windermere and Ambleside, two of the most sought after and desirable places in the Lake District. Just a couple of miles either way will get you to the sights of these two beautiful places, and there is a bus stop just at the bottom of the road so there isn’t even any need to take the car. There is private parking available for one car, as well as additional parking for another in the visitors’ car park.
On entering the property you will find a bright hallway with somewhere to hang your coat, and an elegantly furnished double bedroom, complete with en-suite facilities and ample storage space. Ascending the stairs brings you to a light and airy open plan living space. There is a raised sitting area with a comfortable three-piece suite, ottoman, TV, DVD player and music centre so you can sit and enjoy each other’s company. There is a comprehensively equipped kitchen and dining area with a gas hob, double oven and grill, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Off the kitchen there is a separate drying and storage area. Up on the second floor you will find another spacious bedroom which can be configured with twin beds or a super kingsize. This room has the same magnificent view over Windermere as the living room. Also on this floor is a family bathroom. To the rear of the property is a garden and decked area where you can sit and look over the rooftops to Windermere and the fells in the distance.
