About the property

Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Duddon Valley, Riverside Cottage ticks every box - a rolling river nearby, majestic fells/mountains to all sides, a most traditional Cumbrian Cottage, with a fabulous log burner, many original features, and yet lovingly restored to a bespoke standard.

There's a local pub in walking distance. There's plenty of walks nearby, from gentle strolls to quite high intensity fell climbing. There are also many cycle routes and the area is a favourite with both cyclists and mountain bikers. There is a store room at the cottage for outdoors wear, boots and bikes. You’ll love Riverside for the ambiance, the outdoors space, the peace and tranquility of being close to nature, the space and time to relax. It's good for couples, singles, families, and also furry friends (pets).

The ground floor consists of a cosy lounge with a large ornate woodburner and original slate floor. The dining area has a contrasting wooden floor and leads through to the modern kitchen with stylish and understated decor. Every convenience for your comfort is provided here. The cottage has its own water bore hole and its own water treatment plant and is therefore very eco-friendly. All the appropriate eco friendly products which you will need in the kitchen are provided for you.

The stairs and upper floor has plush thick carpeting. Half way up the stairs you will find a small landing, and a window with a great view leading to the family size bathroom - a beautiful white bathroom suite with free standing pedestal bath. Further up the stairs leads you to the shower room and the two bedromms. Choose for a luxurious king size bed or alternatively there is a twin bedded room with large single beds. These beds can also be fitted together if you would prefer a superking size bedroom.

The river rolling by can be heard from the kitchen and the bathroom, and of course the garden. Take a seat on the garden bench with a good book or a cup of tea and take time to sit and stare - there really is a fabulous panorama of natural beauty all around you. We think one visit won't be enough!

Stunning location in the Duddon Valley, peace and tranquility - no phone signal is an absolute blessing too! Cottage is cosy and comfortable with 2 bathrooms which is important with 4 people, restored to a high standard. Great few days - thanks.

Fantastic 4 night half term break. This lovely cottage has everything you might need for a comfortable stay with some amazing views thrown in. We enjoyed the walks from the door & a meal in the local pub.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We've Just had a great few days at the cottage with the brother in law and his wife and the cottage was just what we were looking for somewhere to relax and unwind with unspoilt views and a great location to enjoy all the walks that are available from the cottage also a fantastic pub just within walking distance with great food. What more can you ask and hope to visit there again soon. 😀?

Peace, nature, modern comforts: An idyllic retreat for outdoor enthusiasts in a tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully appointed cottage in a great location for nature lovers, walkers and bikers. Very serene area. Everything is neat, tidy and comfortable. Bedding was great; we all slept very well. The bath with tub is very inviting with a great view out the back meadow towards the river.

Lots of helpful information available. Loved waking up to look out the window and see sheep, chickens and Peter Rabbits across the lane. The nearest pub, The Newfield Inn, is only about a miles walk away. We enjoyed strolling there in the evening. I highly recommend the home. Thanks, Amanda for the sweet "welcome" treat.
