When it comes to rustic stone barn charm, the Cumbrian hamlet of Duddon Bridge has the monopoly.
Tucked off the main road, along a private lane, Number Five, Duddon View, illustrates this point impeccably in its rough-hewn walls of Lakeland stone.
Home to a small handful of dwellings, surrounded by fells, find spacious parking near the garages before strolling past the authentic farm buildings and converted stables to reach your destination.
Outside, a neatly-gravelled courtyard paves the way to the front door.
Follow the flow of light through to the inviting open-plan living-dining-kitchen. Windows to every side draw the daylight indoors, creating a space that is in synergy with the outdoors.
Well-insulated and so warm, the rustic-feel log-burner set within a locally-sourced Burlington-slate surround is an instant draw. Artisan made from local oak, the lintel above the fire is a handsome sight.
A suffusion of windows pulls light in from every direction, creating such a peaceful space in which to relax and unwind.
Whilst dining at the table, French doors offer enticing glimpses of - and access to - the lush garden outside. Why not enjoy dinner alfresco this summer?
Tucked to one end is the kitchen, fitted with dove grey units above and beneath the jet-black worktops. Fitted with dishwasher, fridge-freezer, electric oven and gas hob, admire the views over the garden and the fields beyond from the window above the sink.
Take the open, white-spindled, grey-carpeted staircase (beneath which is an alcove of storage space) up. A light space, windows frequently feature throughout Number Five, Duddon View, drawing natural light in. Here, a large skylight overhead emphasises the height of the ceiling.
Turn right, into the first of three bedrooms. The more diminutive of the three, this bright bedroom is decorated in cool grey, with a window overlooking the courtyard to the front, the forest beyond and across to Corney Fell.
Ideally sized for a child's bedroom or even an office, the third bedroom is a quiet and elegantly decorated space in which to spin a daydream or two.
Look up to see another large skylight cascading light down from above.
Grey wood-effect tiled flooring in this bedroom is continued in the second bedroom, located at the end of the landing to the right.
Space for a double bed, with shelving above, note the depth of the walls in the windowsill overlooking the courtyard. Plenty of room in here for wardrobe and drawers also.
Tastefully dressed in tones of crisp white and dove grey, the master bedroom is found to the rear, overlooking the garden and fields beyond.
Wood-effect pale grey flooring extends underfoot, completing the trio of bedrooms at Number Five, Duddon View.
Refresh and revive in the newly-renovated and chicly-styled family bathroom.
Warm the towels on the heated rail whilst enjoying an indulgent soak in the freestanding tub.
Ever-connected to the inside of the home, the garden at Number Five, Duddon View beckons...
An open slat fence makes this spacious garden feel even bigger, almost a continuation of the fields beyond, often dotted with a sprinkling of sheep and cattle.
