Set in lovely, quiet surroundings in rural South Cumbria. This home is a great place from which to visit both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. I offer one double room and one twin- bedded room and a full English or continental breakfast.
This is my family home with a lovely garden and stunning views in every direction and is quiet and peaceful, ideal for a relaxing retreat.
There is a choice of a double room or twin bedded room. The double room, with far-reaching views, has an en-suite shower and sink, whilst the twin room has exclusive use of a downstairs shower room. Both rooms share a toilet/sink room. Tea and coffee making facilities are in the rooms, toiletries and towels are provided. A small fridge is available for perishable goods. The rooms are £70 a night each. For single occupancy of the twin room the charge is £35 a night.
I can offer a choice of full English or continental breakfast with vegetarian options available. Please let me know your requirements when booking. There is a good range of local pubs and restaurants nearby, serving food all day. Something to suit every taste from fish and chips and Pizza Express to fine dining.
The house and garden are not suitable for babies and toddlers.
In the summer months, the conservatory is a delightful space in which to eat and relax, however during the cooler months you might take advantage of the sitting room with its log burner and TV. There is plenty of space to be private should you want that. All of this is negotiable.
Interaction with guests
I am happy to spend time with you if you would like that and I can provide maps, ideas of places to visit or walk, packed lunch or be your guide on a day out if I have no other commitments (There would be a reasonable charge to cover fuel and additional food. I would also need some notice to shop for food for packed lunches)
Other things to note
I have a well-behaved boxer dog, who loves to be everyone’s friend, and for that reason, I would want to do some negotiation before welcoming other pets to my home.
My preference would be to host people who are part of a couple or a group of friends. Single women travellers would also be welcome.
Please tell me a little about your group when you make an enquiry.
I would expect guests to treat me and my home with respect. It is a non-smoking house, but you could do so in the garden. Please check in after 4.30 pm and check out by 10.30 am. I will negotiate around this if you would like that.
I am an outgoing and positive person who enjoys the country life. I love walking, canoeing and travel. Being a host on Airbnb has brought a wonderful dimension to my life and I have enjoyed hosting people from all over the world.
