From Lake Windermere weave your way up to the picturesque village of Troutbeck.

Continue past the historic Mortal Man pub, before arriving at another historic property, also part of Troutbeck's bedrock: Yew Tree Cottage.

Step inside and into the warmth, emanating from the navy-blue traditional LPG gas Aga in this large family dining-kitchen.
Serve up a family feast from the well-provisioned country kitchen, fitted with carved oak units above and beneath the black granite worktops.
Original stone flags extend underfoot, blending seamlessly with new slate flag flooring that runs through the dining area.

Step through to the left, onto the exposed, original oak flooring of the formal dining room. Evocatively atmospheric, oak beams span the ceiling, while the robustness of the stone walls is demonstrated by the depth of the windowsills.

Relax and unwind in the family living room, nestled to the right of the front door.
Celebrate the summer sunshine and slip out through a door from the living room directly into the garden.

Take the curving staircase up to the first floor and open the latched door into the master bedroom.
Spanning the full width of the house, this voluminous bedroom can easily accommodate the wall of stylish, built-in wardrobes that stretch up beneath the vaulted ceiling.
Light streams in through the two large windows, creating a refreshing and inviting room. Pause and admire the south-facing views down the valley.
Take the small step up to the ensuite bathroom, Sink into soothing waters in the sunken bath, surrounded by a covering of black and white splashback tiles. Even here, authentic timber beams span the ceiling.

Continuing along the hall where a latched wooden door on the left leads to a bright second bedroom, overlooking the lush garden.

Finally, pay a visit to the third of this trio of bedrooms. Utterly unique, its shapely walls and sloping ceilings are so unusual and much loved by children for their quirkiness.

Returning to the ground floor, head to the kitchen-dining room and take the staircase that leads off to the left, past the stone-flagged mezzanine level with its exposed wood, up a second set of stairs and into the cinema room with 3.5m screen and professional sound system.

Over the Way

Peeping out from across the courtyard is Over the Way, a one plus bedroom flat tastefully decorated and fitted out as a self-contained lettable apartment or guest accommodation.

Whimsically titled, Over the Way is situated up a flight of stairs above the workshop and garage to the rear and to the right.
