The detail

Dating back to the 18th century, this Grade II listed cottage has been expertly restored to create a luxurious home from home. Located on the edge of Cumbria’s magnificent Lake District, and part of the lush Rowley country estate, the cottage is ideal for scenic walks and nature lovers. Head out for a country adventure or relax in front of the serene mountain views for a truly memorable escape.

Carefully renovated, the cottage presents a stunning array of original features dotted with modern facilities. High vaulted ceilings give the living area a spacious feel while sumptuous leather sofas make it a truly welcoming space. Large arched windows steal the show, along with a traditional cast iron wood burner, superb sandstone fireplace, solid oak wood floors and exposed stone walls. A modern kitchen and dining area is also perfectly equipped and has a door opening out onto the pretty countryside scene.

Across its two floors, the cottage has three double bedrooms which each have their own deluxe en-suite bathroom and timeless natural style. The downstairs room boasts an impressive 6 foot bed which can be split into two singles, while the two first floor rooms have large sumptuous beds, high sloped ceilings and quality wood furnishings.

Outside, the cottage has a large private garden with exceptional views over to the Lake District’s Mell Fell. Here you can sit back and relax beneath the clear night sky before heading in for a night beside the fire.

Whether you want a short romantic stroll or a hike amongst the mountains there is something here for everyone. With an array of additional outdoor activities, including quad biking, paintballing and pony trekking, you can make your stay here as exhilarating or relaxing as you like.
For a more chilled out day, there are a range of local attractions to enjoy such as the traditional tea room and stunning garden of Dalemain House and the serene waters of Ullswater Lake.

What a fantastic place to stay. I had arranged to visit Riverain for my boyfriends birthday, meeting up with family as a surprise. We couldn't have asked for a better place to meet. The cottage itself is stunning and the service really was 5 star. The welcome pack was yummy especially the home made raspberry jam :-) We would definitely visit again and have already recommended it to a number of family and friends.

Stayed February 2019
