We live in a very old farm house, which is full of character (which also means it occasionally needs to be talked to and given a warning about general behaviour). The views from
the house are wonderful. It has central heating and a log burning stove. We have four double bedrooms, one has an en suite shower and toilet. We are using the small fifth bedroom to store general stuff while we’re away. Generally it is cosy and has a great atmosphere. The cooking is done on a range heated by mains gas (which means it is always on and ready for a pizza, but loses heat quickly through the hot plates if you are trying to sear eight salmon steaks one at a time). Cakes can be a challenge, until the stove realises you will not take any nonsense, and you have mastered inserting the cooling sheet. (Actually, cooking is really easy and there is a combi-micro wave if it all really gets too much). We have mesh WiFi, which seems to be reasonably good for speeds.
We have a high chair and travel cot available, if needed.
There is room for two cars, but they need to be turned in our space to drive out again.
The garden is a good space and gets the sun until early evening. ( We are currently developing the required lockdown-vegetable patch etc). There is a swing, barbecues (smaller and larger) and bikes are available to explore the lanes around the area. We cycle over to Loweswater, Crummock and other local places.
