Discover ample parking for several cars on the private drive of the home, just off the quiet road leading out of Bowness. Feel instantly at home as you catch sight of this charming Lakeland cottage; handsome with traditional features yet comfortable and unassuming.

Make your way through the handy porchway, ideal for placing your brolly and welly boots, and step into the home that is decorated with rich and vibrant colours that envelop you in warmth and comfort.

Through the wide doorway on the right, find the formal dining room, fit for all manner of celebrations with deep green walls giving elegance and sophistication. Dual aspect windows to front and side allow for natural light to flood in and a central table can easily fit up to 10 people.

Across the hallway lies the sitting room, naturally divided by an archway, this versatile room would make an ideal den for the children. The first half lending itself to a cosy snug that could be used multifunctionally as a garden room, TV room or playroom. Open the double doors and extend playtime outside onto the patio. Equally create a children free zone and make this a fantastic garden room where you can open the glazing and sit peacefully reading in the sun surrounded by the colourful hues of daffodils and magnolia.

Spot the space under the stairs for freestanding storage, as you make your way to the back of the home and into the lounge. Again, the room is filled with natural light from the large picture window and double doors leading onto a separate section of the patio. A spacious room, ready for all season with feature log burner set under an exposed wooden plinth perfect for warming in front of after a day in the fells but also ready for the warmer months when you can open the double doors and extend the living space into the garden, allowing for the garden and home to become one. Note the built-in arched alcoves providing storage for books and possessions as well as cupboards to hide items away.

The stand-out red Aga radiates warmth in colour and function in the adjacent kitchen. Contemporary white cabinets equip the kitchen with plenty of storage for pots, pans and china as well as a built-in double oven and undercounter fridge and freezer. A lovely seating area, cleverly fitted into the large bay window allows for the whole family to enjoy relaxed breakfasts and dinners. A real heart of the home where guests can gather round the integral island where a three-ring gas burner can be found for additional cooking facilities.

Storage is abundant at Garth Cottage. Just off the hallway uncover walk-in cupboards and a large utility/boot room, found through a sliding door from the handy downstairs WC.

Follow the soft hues of the neutral carpet that flows throughout back into the hallway and ascend the staircase to the first floor.

From the large landing take a right into the master suite. An airy, spacious and tranquil room to escape to with handy built-in wardrobe as well as ample space for a dresser and king-side bed. En-suite shower room complete with WC and wash hand basin. Step out onto the balcony, giving beautiful elevated views towards Lake Windermere and Claife Heights beyond. Take morning coffee in the sun, overlooking the beauty of the garden below, watching the birds swoop in and out.

Adjacent is the family bathroom shared by bedrooms three and four. Contemporary slate style tiles adorn the floor and walls finished with a vanity unit, WC, heated towel rail and a large walk-in shower where you can wash away the day.

Bedrooms three and four are both good sized doubles with large dual aspect windows allowing for tons of natural light as well as built-in cupboard to hang clothes.

Be drawn further along the corridor with promises of the views out to the fells, and find the final bedroom.

Bedroom two, neutrally decorated with full length windows bringing the nature inside making it a calm and peaceful space to rest your head. This room also benefits from handy cupboards and an en-suite shower room.

Garden and Grounds
The garden cocoons the home in serenity, securing it as a haven away from the hustle and bustle of the nearby towns.

Follow the slate chippings, to the right of the home, past the door to the kitchen creating a convenient and secluded space to hangout the washing. The chippings continue to the rear, where the garden opens up onto a spacious manicured lawn stretching out before you. High hedgerows and trees add privacy to the bottom of the garden whereas to the right the border has been left lower adorned with mature shrubs and bushes allowing you to catch glimpses of the majestic fell lines in the distance.

Take the step up onto the elevated paved terrace, that comes straight out from the double doors of the lounge creating an ideal setting for BBQ's and entertaining. An additional seating area, can be found leading from the sitting room, making a lovely spot to sit and read.
The patio reaches past the raised slope, filled with spring bulbs, and takes you back to the driveway.

This large garden is filled with potential, currently kept simple and functional but with the space available you could add a vegetable patch, build a summer house or fill it with flowers.

A detached double garage with electric doors opened by remote control. With power and lighting it lends itself, not just to cars but for many other uses, such as storage for gardening and sporting equipment. For those who are a dab hand at DIY then create a workbench, next to the log store at the back, as the space is plentiful.
