You can watch ducks, swans and if you're lucky, the odd heron, wild deer or maybe even trout from the cottages private river frontage which overlooks Pooley Bridge (currently under reconstruction).

Sit back and relax in the contemporary lounge in front of a real wood burning stove, admiring the beautiful gardens from the full length windows which can be opened fully on warmer days so the cottage literally spills into the garden, perfect for al-fresco dining.

Enjoy the peace and tranquility of the gardens from the stunning summer house with comfortable L shaped sofa with truly mesmerizing views towards the river and the adjoining fields.

Sarah's Cottage is a truly unique Lakeland hideaway that offers quaint yet luxurious accommodation in the heart of the Lakes yet is less than ten minutes away from the M6 Motorway and the bustling town of Penrith.

There is so much to do here, no matter what the weather is like. Take a scenic walk along the lake shore and catch the steamer boat back or relax in one of the three village pubs or excellent restaurant. Explore the lake in your own boat or canoe which can be launched from the garden or rent a boat from the lake shore.

You could explore the nearby fells or take an easy walk along the River Eamont. You can also climb Dunmallard Hill, directly opposite the cottage, keeping an eye out for wild deer and admiring the daffodils and bluebells in spring.

The interior has been carefully planned to maximize space, light and comfort with all mod-cons including free wi-fi, smart TV, Blu-ray DVD, wood burning stove, dishwasher and more.

Beyond the kitchen, the living area features panoramic bi-fold doors which overlook the beautiful patio area and gardens which lead down to the river. During warmer months, these doors can be fully opened so that the house and the garden connect seamlessly.

The room also features a further armchair, stunning wood burning stove, underfloor heating, 40" Smart TV with access to internet, Blue-ray DVD player with a good selection of recent films plus a book case with a selection of books.

In addition to the living area, the spacious summer house is a true garden retreat, perfect for quiet relaxation and sits on an elevated patio area to maximize the view towards the river and meadow to the north. This summer house features a comfortable L shaped sofa, coffee table and lighting.

A spacious bunk room is ideal for the children with two built in single beds in bunk arrangement, wardrobe with drawers, further drawers under bunk bed and further storage. This room overlooks the gardens towards the river and Dunmallard Hill.

The modern shower room again overlooks the gardens and features spacious shower, wc, basin and heated towel rail.

The property has been decorated to the highest standard, mixing modern furniture with traditional features to create a truly luxurious, cosy, light and airy feel. The cottage has an stone floor downstairs with underfloor heating, a beautiful oak staircase, oak doors, traditional sisal flooring to the first floor bedrooms with night storage heaters.

Externally there is a truly idyllic garden that stretches 130ft towards the river and has to be seen to be fully appreciated. The garden also features a spacious patio area immediately in front of the living room, a raised patio area adjacent to the summer house, sun loungers, dining table and chairs plus two wooden benches and a unique seating area next to the river which overlooks Pooley Bridge.

From this tranquil spot, you can watch an ever changing vista on the river, perfect for lazy days. Steps lead directly to the shallow waters where it is possible to launch an inflatable boat, windsurfer or canoe and explore Lake Ullswater.

The flower beds, mature shrubs and trees attract an abundance of wildlife throughout the year including birds, ducks, bees and butterflies during the summer months. If you are lucky you might see a wild deer roaming the adjacent field, a heron on the river bank or maybe even trout swimming in the shallow waters of the river.

Hop over the fence and you have an endless possibility of walks to suit all grades along the riverbank and beyond.

Although the property does not feature off street parking, it is possible to park one car on the lane directly outside, subject to availability. Otherwise, there is free parking in the village square at the top of the lane (50 metres away).

Please note that two neighboring properties have access rights through the garden and side gate which is used occasionally.

Sorry but we are strictly unable to accept any pets.
Smoking is not permitted in the property or gardens.

We will provide an abundance of fluffy white towels, complimentary toiletries, free wi-fi and complimentary logs for the fire. Beds will be made up for arrival. The village store/post office is less than a minutes' walk away and sells a full range of essentials plus newspapers and magazines.

Father to three children. Sarah’s Cottage is our Lakeland retreat named in memory of Sarah, my children’s mother who sadly lost her battle to cancer in 2013. Sarah loved the Lake District and this is our special little place named in her memory, where her children can make new memories. From time to time, we have decided to rent out the cottage to help pay for running costs. This is a very special place for us so we kindly request that guests treat the property with respect and look after it as you find it, reporting any breakages or damage and being considerate to our neighbours. Thanks. Chris
