Croft Corner – sleeps 2 plus cot
Croft Corner offers self catering holiday accommodation just for 2 people. It is VisitEngland 4 stars with a VisitEngland Gold Award. A gravel path leads through the garden of Croft Corner up to the porch and the entrance door which opens into the kitchen. The kitchen was refitted in November 2014 in Shaker-style oak units and now includes a dishwasher.
The lounge/dining room has a view over the garden to the shoulder of Skiddaw whilst the double bedroom has a view over the garden and farmland beyond to Latrigg. There is a spacious en-suite bathroom with bath (with shower over the bath) wash basin and toilet.
Croft Corner has its own independent heating system and in addition there is a coal-effect electric fire in the lounge. It has its own cottage-style garden with a water cascade – also a magnificent view right to the summit of Skiddaw. Garden furniture and a BBQ are provided. Croft Corner has its own adjacent, small boiler room where there is space to store/dry walking gear.
(Guests who have limited mobility might like to be aware that the accommodation in Croft Corner is all on one level and it is a level path to the property from the car park.)
There are fell walks from the door (ranging from easy to difficult!) and three restaurants within walking distance – as are the health spa facilities at Oxleys at Underscar in Applethwaite.
There is a separate, shared laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer and additional space to dry wet walking gear.
We can offer lockable bike storage but we would ask that this is requested on booking. There is an outside tap by the laundry room so that bikes can be washed off. Car parking for 1 car in separate car park area. There is also a separate, shared children’s play area with a play tower and badminton net.
