Spacious Detached House On The Fringe Of The Lake District - Kirkland home swap

If you`re looking for a quiet, charming, rural getaway with mountain views, sheep roaming in nearby fields and lakes nearby, then our home will be ideal for you and your family. Decorated with a warm colourful cosy cottage feel, it`s hard not to sink into relaxation. Our home has well-sized rooms, the bedrooms are all quite large, consisting of an upstairs living room with glorious views of the mountains just above Ennerdale Water, two large bedrooms, plus an additional smaller `box` bedroom, as well as a large kitchen diner, and downstairs `snug` living room. We also have two bathrooms, both with toilets, and the main family bathroom complete with shower and bath. Our home can suitably accommodate a family of four, possibly five, if the ages of the children are appropriate. The living areas are inviting and comfortable with a wood burner (in the living room). There is a large garden and play area for kids, as well as a bonfire pit and bbq. Lastly, we have a shy but super cute cat, Maggie, who can be boarded if you`d rather not look after her. She`s low maintenance though, just needs a bit of love and food.

About the location

We are located in the lovely small rural village of Kirkland, which is situated just over eight miles from the quaint gem town of Cockermouth. We are located a mile and a half from Ennerdale Bridge (which has a fabulous cafe and two pubs) and a further mile to Ennerdale Water. We regularly spend our time hitting the local fells and nearby lakes, and enjoying days out in lakeland towns such as Keswick. There are also lots of wonderful footpaths just outside of our front door, some ending at Ennerdale Bridge. There`s also a children`s playground located in our village, just across the road.
