A lovely, romantic hideaway for couples, Victoria House has a charming galleried double bedroom, with a living/dining room and kitchen at first floor level, and a glazed door to a balcony furnished with a bistro style table and folding chairs.

At ground floor level the cottage also includes its own small paved area next to the little green around which Victoria House and its two neighbours are located, and from which there is an attractive view to a row of cottages with pretty gardens along a lane directly opposite.

The cottage, in Gunnerside, is entered at ground floor level through a stone-flagged hall (with space for bikes and boots) and a ‘snug’ with wood-burning stove, TV and comfortable seating. The living area upstairs has terrific views overlooking the patchwork of Gunnerside meadows.

With all mod cons, having been recently refurbished to a high standard, the cottage has everything you will need for a restful holiday away from the stresses and cares of workaday life in the city. Spend the day rambling over surrounding fells and moors and come back to the relaxation of beautiful Victoria House, a stone’s throw from Ghyllfoot Tearoom and bistro. Extra single bed in bedroom, single sofa bed in ground floor snug.
