Burrells Cottage is a spacious 3 bedroomed semi-detached cottage in the hamlet of Burrells, which is close to the town of Appleby-in-Westmorland. The house has been recently refurbished to a provide comfortable accommodation, providing a mix of traditional and modern living spaces. The hosts occupy the house next-door, so you can be sure your neighbours will be respectful of your comfort during your stay.
The house is a Grade II listed farmhouse, which dates back to the 18th Century, and has its own gardens, with a furnished decked area in the upper garden with gas barbecue, ideal for sitting out and enjoying the cottage’s countryside and farmland surroundings. To the front of the house there is a lawn and parking for up to three cars.
The downstairs of the cottage comprises a farmhouse style kitchen outfitted with modern appliances, electric oven/inset cooker top and a breakfast bar. A tile-floor utility room leading off from the kitchen to the rear of the house contains a washer, fridge-freezer, sink and breadmaker. This room can also be accessed directly from the rear of the house, and has plenty of space for muddy boots!
Also adjoining the kitchen is a snug living room with large leather sofas, an open fire (with coal and logs provided), flatscreen TV and large library of DVDs. The garden room provides a dining area which is bright and airy during the day, and cosy during the evening with underfloor heating, blinds and warm lighting. This space is also ideal for playing board games, or relaxing in the wingback chairs with the wall-mounted smart TV. The garden room leads out onto a patio area, with access to both the front of the cottage, and the steps leading up to the rear garden. In addition, there is a ground floor bathroom with spa bath, separate shower, toilet and hand basin.
The upstairs of the cottage is accessed by a staircase, leading to a small landing which leads off to the three bedrooms and upstairs bathroom. The master bedroom contains a kingsize bed, bedside tables, antique wardrobe and dresser. The second bedroom contains a double bed, bedside tables, a dresser and has a built-in wardrobe. The rear bedroom is a twin room with two single beds with a bedside table, dresser, built in storage and views over the upper garden and surrounding farmland. Completing the upstairs is a newly-built bathroom containing toilet, hand basin, heated towel rail and power shower.
We are more than happy to host families, and provide a travel cot, high chair and stair gate for no extra charge. Families with young children should be sure to take extra care with the open fire and the upper garden, which is elevated and slopes to a drop.
You will have access to the entire cottage and gardens. The driveway is shared with the host. Parking for two cars is accessed via the driveway, with additional parking next to the road in front of the cottage.
