Not far from the thriving market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, River View Cottage is nestled in the quiet village of Burrow, accessibly situated just off the A683, in easy reach of both the Lake District National Park and The Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Pull along the substantial driveway, where parking is available in abundance, alongside two garages, a double and single. The peace and privacy of the setting settles instantly, stepping outside and towards the main entrance of River View Cottage, as nature's soundtrack presents itself in the quiet birdsong and gentle flow of the river.

Make your way to the canopy covered entrance to River View Cottage, where a glazed door nestled between tall windows delivers light and views through to the entrance hall beyond.

Step inside, where warmth emanates from the underfloor heating running throughout the home, and sense the spaciousness of this open, flowing home.

Far reaching views greet you immediately in the lounge on the left; a grandly sized room with large windows to three sides. Airy and bright, courtesy of its high vaulted ceiling, freshly laid carpet flows out underfoot. Soak up the sunset views to the west and snuggle up in front of the fire on chilly winter evenings.

Turning right from the entrance hall, emerge into the dining area. A large, light and open space with an easy flow out to the conservatory, kitchen and living room, it serves as a sociable hub of the home. Attractive cornicing skims the ceiling, with a handsome solid wood fitted drinks cabinet arched into the wall. A large window draws in light.

Open the glazed door into the conservatory, an impressive mahogany extension to the home capturing the beauty and tranquility of the extensive gardens and riverside setting. Exposed stone, richly toned wood and anti-sun, self-cleaning glass combine for in this relaxing room, where double doors open to the paved patio, perfect for evening drinks, whilst the banks of the river are tantalisingly close, only a few dozen paces away.

Returning to the dining room, step through to the kitchen, a well-proportioned and spacious room, sociably styled with a central island. Cream cabinetry offers plenty of storage for all your kitchen utensils and culinary essentials, complemented by a combination of light-coloured granite worktops and solid wood.

Warm and welcoming, a built-in cushioned corner seating area is the perfect place for a breakfast table, whilst views extend over the landscaped gardens to the west.

With additional storage and plumbing for a washer-dryer, the utility room is an added bonus, providing direct access to the garden, where a paved pergola-covered walkway and patio extend to the side and stone steps lead up to the lawns.

Retracing your steps to the dining area, turn into the inner hall, broad and brightly illuminated by a large roof lantern, recently installed during renovation work to raise the ceiling height.

Turning left, discover the main bedroom. Spacious and light, windows frame sunset views out toward the west, whilst newly laid carpet - a feature throughout the home - extends underfoot.

Along one side of the room, fitted wardrobes provide plenty of storage, leading to a cosy dressing area, also bathed in light via a large window. Wake up to the peace and tranquility of rurality every morning. The main bedroom is served by its own private ensuite, furnished with bath, white heated towel radiator, wash basin and WC.

Next door to the main bedroom, on the left, light from a large roof lantern illuminates the spacious family shower room, where a wash basin, WC and mirrored cabinet accompany the large shower cubicle.

Continuing along the hallway, arrive at bedroom three on the left, admire the northerly views over the cobbled yard and stone trough with pump. There is plenty of space for a wardrobe in here.

Turning left along the passage arrive at the final bedroom. Spacious and bright with one window to the south and another window facing east drawing in early morning sun, it is served by a large shower room ensuite with shower, wash basin and WC.

Returning to the hall, storage is available in the walk-in cupboard on the left, fitted with shelving and also housing the boiler, heating and electric equipment.

Providing peace and privacy for guests and brimming with potential for Airbnb income, make your way into the entrance hall of the two-bedroom annex at River View Cottage.

Freshly painted in crisp white, with modern spotlighting overhead, make your way up the stairs to arrive at the open-plan living-dining-kitchen, where elevated views out over the gardens and river await. Light flows in through large windows in the sloping roofline of the vaulted ceiling

Returning down to the entrance hall, peep through the first door on the left, into the bathroom, tiled to the walls in white and containing a bath with overhead shower, wash basin and WC.

Spacious and light, the first of the two bedrooms is located across the hallway beyond a wooden door. With ample space for a king-size bed, views extend over the cobbled driveway and trees to the front.

Continuing along the hallway, the main bedroom is privately located at the end, with ensuite shower room containing shower cubicle, wash basin and WC.

With so much space there is scope to run your business from home, served by B4RN wired-in internet to both cottage and annex, connectivity is simple.

Step out into your own patch of paradise, as elevated patios step down to lushly mown lawns, swathing River View Cottage. Planted borders introduce colour, texture and fragrance from spring through 'til late summer, with mature trees to the boundary.

Peaceful and idyllic, sense your separation from the world in this outdoor haven, brimming with wildlife. Large ponds provide a perfect habitat for birds, amphibians and mammals, previously home to koi carp.

Walk down to the jetty at the waters' edge on the banks of the River Lune and soak up the sublime sunsets with a glass of your favourite tipple, watching for the vibrant colours of visiting kingfishers, treecreepers and nuthatches.

Wildlife is in abundance at River View Cottage - with all manner of shy creatures making an appearance including deer and otters; see the telltale signs of the sand martin tunnels in the riverbank opposite, a truly magical sight. With fishing rights in Leck Beck, simply obtain a fishing license and spend tranquil hours in tune with nature.

Grow your own in the vegetable patches, set in raised beds to one side and featuring a greenhouse too, ideal for avid gardeners.

Another area of lawn is fringed by pine trees, perfect for harvesting at Christmas time, and once housed beehives, whose balsam-scented honey was harvested and sold at the end of the road. Flat and vast, the lawns at River View Cottage, replete with their watercolour backdrop are ideal for marquees when hosting family parties and events.

A number of outbuildings, formerly used to keep Tamworth pigs, are brimming with potential, possibly for conversion to stables or for further annex accommodation. There is also a handy gardener's WC outside.
