The heart of the house is downstairs and features an open plan living room, kitchen and dining space, offering an open fire for those cosy nights in. Upstairs has a modern bathroom, and there are two good sized bedrooms comprising of a double, with plenty of storage, and a bunk bedded room. There are open views from the upstairs windows as far as the eye can see and the changing colours of the seasons are a sight to behold when you wake in the morning. It really makes this cottage one to remember.
Osprey Cottage is an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of 21st century life, whether you are in the lakes for relaxation, culture, sightseeing or adventure, you are in a prime location within a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Lake District National Park.
Situated in the popular village of Bassenthwaite, the property benefits from amazing views looking south towards Bassenthwaite Lake, Catbells and the Borrowdale Valley and takes in some stunning sights of the surrounding Northern Lake District Fells. Immediately behind the property is a wood with lots of wildlife, including red squirrels, osprey and other birds of prey, and from the top, a sensational view of Skiddaw. Within a short walk of the property you have two pubs offering great food and local ales. It is just 8 miles from the popular towns of Keswick and Cockermouth.
Keswick is on the shores of Derwent Water, which offers an abundance of shopping and dining experiences, as well as a variety of cultural hotspots and tourist attractions including the Pencil Museum, the Theatre on the Lake, Keswick Convention Centre and Keswick Museum and Art Gallery.
Cockermouth is a quieter 800 year old market town, again with lots of shops and places to eat. It is the birthplace of William Wordsworth and another famous son is Fletcher Christian who led the mutiny on ’The Bounty’. Cockermouth sits on the junction of two major rivers Derwent and Cocker and is the home to Jennings Brewery.
The property has no rear garden and although there is a lovely garden which can be seen from the rear windows, it does not belong to this cottage. Shops 8 miles, pub and restaurant ¾ mile. Osprey Cottage can be booked together with Holly Bank (CC113125) 200 metres away, to accommodate up to 12 guests, and is equipped with sufficient crockery and cutlery to cater for all guests.
