  The Detail...

Sitting on the historic John Hutton Estate is Lacet Cottage. This 18th/19th Century conversion perfectly blends a charming rustic feel with all the modern conveniences expect in a modern home. Apart from the beautiful cottage, guests have the benefit of being perfectly positioned in the magnificent Lake District, a recently designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sleeping up to four people, this beautiful cottage is ideal for a pair of couples, a small family, or a group of friends. With its relaxing air, various amenities, and access to some of the UK's most picturesque countryside, guests are sure to wonder why they hadn't visited sooner.

Originally comprised of two homesteads, Lacet has been renovated and opened up to create a spacious two-bedroom cottage. It is a traditional cottage dating from either the 18th or 19th Century and is composed of local sandstone. On the ground floor there is a cosy sitting room with a log burning fire, a separate snug (great for curling up with a good book), a fully-equipped open-planned kitchen and dining room with lovely views out into the neighbouring fields, a shower room, and utility room. On the first floor, both bedrooms benefit from stunning views across the gorgeous countryside. Each has its own king size bed (one can be offered as a twin) and they share a shower room. One bedroom also has its own freestanding bath tub for some added luxury. This is the ideal place to sit and enjoy a soak whilst taking in the lovely view.

To the front of the property there is a lovely little garden. Towards the rear, guests will be afforded more privacy with the back garden having its own tucked away patio. The outdoor space is perfect for reclining on the garden furniture with a good book or enjoying the views of the countryside.

Lacet cottages sits in the famous Lake District, making it the perfect base from which to go exploring. There are an abundance of walks and cycles on your doorstep, providing some of the most striking scenery that England has to offer. Local guided walks and various outdoor activities such as canoeing, kayaking and caving are on offer in the area for those who enjoy more strenuous activities. Nearby locales include the popular village of Pooley Bridge, the civil parish of Penrith, and the market town of Keswick. The cathedral city of Carlisle is also just a 35-minute drive north, near the border with Scotland.
