Description of holiday cottage near Keswick, Lake District/Cumbria, North West England

Manesty is the heart of the original farmhouse, and dates back to mediaeval times, when Manesty was the northern outpost of Furness Abbey’s wool producing empire. The stairs were preceded by an outside access to the loft evident in the exposed stone outside the stairs window.

Suitable for up to 6 or 7 people.

There are three bedrooms upstairs (two double rooms, and one room with a double and a single) and a bathroom/WC.

Downstairs the large entrance hall, once the scullery and still with original stone slab and bulls-eye window, leads into the old farmhouse kitchen with traditional pine dining table and dresser, exposed beams and meat hooks in the ceiling. Opening off the kitchen is a laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer which in turn leads to a shower room/WC.

The cosy, traditional sitting room is at the front of the building, down a couple of steps from the entrance hall and has ample comfy seating for 6 people.

There are uninterrupted views across the valley from the sitting room and one bedroom; the remaining rooms look towards the peaks of Skiddaw.

The old garden gateway leads to the lawn, garden furniture, and panoramic views.

There is parking for one car at the cottage and further off road parking available nearby.
