Super-comfortable 5' bed with luxury pocket-sprung mattress, memory foam topper & Australian Superwool cover! (Option of floor mattress & bedding for 2nd guests who don't wish to share the same bed.) Continental breakfast - cereals, bread, yogurt, fruit. Attractive rural location. Lovely walks from doorstep. C2C start 2 miles away (downhill!) Excellent parking. Ennerdale Lake 9 miles, Loweswater 10 miles, Buttermere 20 miles, Wastwater(Scafell Pike) 20 miles.
For more details of the house & area, see my main listing "5 miles west of Lake District (1), near Whitehaven"
Bikes can be stored in the house, or garage or garden.
The laybys either side of the house hold about 7 cars, and as neighbours have garages, there is not normally any problem finding somewhere to park. I'm happy to make my garage available to C2C-ers needing somewhere to leave their car - subject to availability if too many want this in a short space of time!
Guests have access to the kitchen, in which you are welcome to use the cooker, microwave, and a bit of fridge space.
You may eat in the kitchen, or dining room, or your bedroom. (The living room is not available, cos that is my private space.)
Please be aware that the bathroom is shared with all who live in the house - myself, my other 1 or 2 lodger(s) and potentially airbnb guest(s) in my other letting room(s) when the usual lodgers are away. I hope that's OK with you!
I'm always happy to chat about the Lake District and local coastal walks, and help in any way I can during your stay.
Well behaved, house-trained, quiet dogs welcome - best to stay in your room when you are in, and go out with you when you are out, in case mine gets jealous!
Born in Oxford, I grew up near Witney in Oxfordshire. I've lived in Whitehaven for the last 22 years, having come here to work at the hospital and go hill walking. I've travelled to a lot of places all over the world, but am staying put of late with my beloved border collie.
