Holly Cottage is set in the outstanding Ennerdale Valley in the Lake District National Park, situated in a remote countryside location less than a mile from the village of Ennerdale Bridge. Holly Cottage was previously part of Bank House Farm, tastefully refurbished in a modern country style and the fully enclosed rear garden makes it perfect for families and Dogs

The space
Upon entering the neatly presented cottage, there is a small vestibule in which to leave muddy boots, coats and walking gear. You will then enter the living room, in which you'll discover a multi fuel stove (one initial bucket of coal and basket of sticks is provided), surrounded by a three-seater leather sofa and armchair. There is a TV and DVD player and a collection of DVDs. A peek around the corner will reveal a separate snug for those who want a bit of peace and quiet; a selection of books, walking guides and board games are available and the room is furnished with a two-seater leather sofa.

The well-stocked kitchen is accessed via the living room and is notable for its fabulous slate flagstone flooring. An electric oven with ceramic hob, microwave, freestanding fridge-freezer and washer-dryer are all included. The kitchen table serves as a dining area for four guests. The view from the kitchen looks towards Ennerdale Water, with the Western Fells (including Great Borne, Starling Dodd and Gavel Fell) in the distance. The rear garden is accessed via the kitchen; it is a simple enclosed rectangular space with slate shillies and flagstones on the ground and outdoor table and chairs to seat four people.

Upstairs, on the first floor, are the two bedrooms. The double bedroom contains two bedside cabinets and chair (the large wardrobe is in the hallway, opposite the door) and the twin room contains two single beds, a large wardrobe and chest-of-drawers and a (now) unused feature fireplace. Both rooms look out to the front and over the fields towards Cleator Moor. The bathroom contains an over-bath electric shower, bath, WC and heated towel rail, with views over the Ennerdale fells.
