This excellent character cottage is situated on the fringe of the Lake District National Park, in the peaceful village of Sockbridge. Ideally located for exploring the northern Lakes and fells, just two and a half miles from Ullswater and 15 miles from Keswick. This holiday property is light, warm and spacious, and retains many original features, with open views across fields to the Pennines. Directly from the cottage there are several pleasant walks to be enjoyed along public footpaths, across the fields and along the river. Nearby is a children’s play area and a little further on is the village pub and shop, all within walking distance of the cottage. Visit the market town of Penrith, with its variety of shopping facilities, Lowther castle and Gardens, or pack a picnic and head off to Askham outdoor heated pool all located only three miles from the cottage. In 1745 Sockbridge and Sockbridge House were raided by a detachment of Charles Edward Stuart’s army when they invaded England. Two of his cannon balls, found alongside the Sockbridge Mill, are on display in Carlisle Castle museum. Within two miles of the property you can enjoy historical sites including Brougham Castle, Mayburgh Henge and King Arthurs Round Table. Shop, pub and restaurant 250 yards.
