About this listing
We have a family house seated at the foot of Catbells in the heart of the Borrowdale Valley - as featured in the newest Star Wars movie! Quiet village location and beautiful walks straight from the door step.
An interesting, comfortable and quiet room with wireless internet and sky TV. Lovely view down over the birds in the garden as they gather around the birds feeders in the mornings.
Bedroom and shared bathroom. Guest will have access to the kitchen for breakfast, guests are also invited to get tea and coffee from the kitchen. Each morning we provide breakfast of cereals, eggs, bacon, toast and preserves in the family kitchen. Guests can prepare this themselves or relax whilst it is prepared for them. Breakfast time is negotiable and we make every effort to flex to guests requirements.
Interaction with Guests
As this is it family home it is inevitable that guests will see us, and we are happy to chat and discuss interesting places to walk or visit. However, we are mindful that guests usually want to enjoy time alone together and so we try to respect this during the day and evening.
Lovely village with friendly neighbours, beautiful views, both fell and flat walks straight from the door, access to the lake within half a mile. Start Wars fans may enjoy seeing the locations from the movie scenes!
There is a bus service from Grange bridge to Keswick (the nearest town) four miles away. The bus is hourly in both directions during the summer months and less frequently in the winter.
Other Things to Note
We have two friendly dogs, one of whom can be excited on the first meeting (but quickly settles), and one cat who is also friendly but largely follows her own agenda. Please be aware that the bathroom is shared.
We don't have a great many rules; we are a non-smoking house, we remove our shoes in the house (and so guests might want to bring thick socks or slippers), and we are mindful of the comfort of others, which includes being careful to be quiet if returning late in the evening.
