Idyllic Lake District living doesn't get better, or more central than this...

Discover a stone-built character cottage in Great Langdale, framed by the fells, with a range of mountain biking trails, road cycling, hill walking, fell running, trail running and wild swimming opportunities available on the doorstep.

Step out of your back door and head directly up the fells from New Stickle Cottage, a renovated stone cottage with all the quintessential character of a Beatrix Potter illustration, yet all the practical perks needed for modern lifestyles.

Nestled conveniently behind the Stickle Barn pub, pull up the driveway to the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel, passing the hotel on your right, before turning to the left behind the pub. New Stickle Cottage is just on the left, stone faced and with parking for three alongside the stone wall. Doors also open to an integral garage, handy for storage. A new addition, as part of renovations undertaken by the current owners, other features of this work include the addition of a new utility room, reskimming and painting of walls and replacement of carpets throughout.

Head for the sage front door and into the porch, where contemporary neutral décor enhances the entrance hall beyond the glazed internal door. Exposed stone and tiled flooring in the porch are replaced by herringbone wooden flooring in the entrance hall, where the warmth of the cottage is instantly apparent. Stash your coat and hat in the deep storage cupboard.

A home brimming with quirks and character, rooms have been rearranged to maximise light, space and views. Sleeping quarters are now found on the ground floor, preserving the picturesque views of the fells for the daytime.

Turn left to discover a warm and welcoming bedroom, where herringbone flooring continues underfoot and a crimson feature wall harmonises with decorative touches and soft furnishings for an intimate feel. A deep window seat offers storage alongside built-in shelving beside the double bed.

Next door, the former kitchen - now relocated upstairs - makes way for the family bathroom, where a large spa bath and separate walk-in shower feature. Served by a WC and twin wash basins mounted in granite worktops, ample storage features within the vanity unit beneath. Access from the bathroom leads out to the newly built utility room, housing a recently installed hot water cylinder supplied by a biomass boiler, ensuring economic and reliable heat throughout the home. Beyond the utility room is access to the integral garage, ideal for storing your paddleboard, dry suits, camping and walking equipment and more.

Returning to the entrance hall, sneak a peek to the right of the front door, where a fully-tiled shower room makes great use of space, featuring a shower, wash basin and WC. A quirky, tall rectangular window invites light whilst retaining privacy.

Make your way now through to the carpeted wing of the bedroom level, where a large space to the left is currently used as a dressing area. Ahead, arrive at the first of two further bedrooms, the guest room. A high window captures leafy garden views, embracing the cosy cottage feel of this home. Dressed in neutral, warm tones, there is plenty of space for a double bed and bedside tables.

Next door, the master bedroom is spacious and light, decorated in soft grey-green tones and cosily carpeted underfoot. Two broad windows frame views out over the fields and fells. Ample space in here for a desk, bookshelves, wardrobe and chest of drawers in addition to your double bed.

Make your way up the solid wood staircase to the half landing, where glazed French doors draw in light from the garden and offer instant access to the serenity of the outdoors. Dine on the patio and drink in the peace and tranquillity of your surroundings beneath the instantly recognisable outline of the Langdale peaks.

Inside, continue up the second flight of stairs, arriving on the landing of the first floor, where a shower room ahead is warmed by underfloor heating. Containing a wash basin, WC and large shower, there is ample storage also.

Flow through to the left, into the carpeted lounge, a large, light and inviting room with spectacular views through a large window. A peaceful backdrop for morning yoga or simply accompanying the first cuppa of the day. Windows to two further sides ensure abundant light flow, aided at dusk by the modern spotlighting to the ceiling.

Warmth emanates from the stove, converted from open fireplace to a high-quality Clearview wood burner with direct air flow. Easy to light and smokeless, this contemporary addition - alongside Nest thermostatic controls and Broadband internet - is one of many upgrades elevating New Stickle Cottage to a convenient contemporary home wrapped up in characterful Lakeland stone.

Across from the lounge is the large and light kitchen. Moved upstairs from its original setting on the ground floor, this room is awash with light from the large windows which frame striking views out over the fells. The hub of the home, this room's magnetism is a draw for friends and family, who can sit at the central island with a drink and chat as dinner is prepared, before moving to the dining table by the window.

Pleasantly practical, copious amounts of cupboard space are on hand for all your cooking equipment, with plentiful preparation space on the worktops. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher and double Bosch ovens. Draw a glass of refreshing natural water from the tap; UV filtered and chlorine-free. New Stickle Cottage is a home truly in tune with its surroundings.

Outside, the gently sloping rear lawn guides the eyeline towards the ever-present fells. A large patio is ideal for drinks, alfresco dining and entertaining, with a handy shed for stashing garden furniture over the winter months. Savour the garden views of the surrounding fells. Springtime is especially picturesque, with local fields populated by new born lambs. All quiet and peaceful in the afternoon sun, enjoy a snooze on your sun lounger to the gentle soundtrack of bleating lambs.
