House in Lake District, Great Britain

Our house is beautifully situated with lovely views in all directions yet within easy walking distance, down a quiet lane, of the village of Dalston with good shopping.  Dalston is on the Cumbrian Way (long distance walking trail) and there are many other walking paths by the River Caldew and to Rose Castle.
Ours is a pretty stone village house with period features. Sitting room (with conservatory off), dining room, with piano, and large dining kitchen on ground floor.  Two double bedrooms, one with en-suite, family bathroom and single bedroom, with full size high sleeper on first floor. Second floor two further single bedrooms, with room in one for an extra folding bed.
Full size table tennis table for setting up on drive, room to garage car if needed - plenty of parking on drive.

Our village has excellent craft bakery and butchers and deli.  We have fishing for trout on the River Caldew - 5 mins walk from house. The famous Lake District is within 20 minute sdrive, with sailing and walking and the Theatre by the Lake at Keswick.  We have Ospreys hatching in Dodd Woods in the Spring and you may see red squirrels in our garden.  Other beautiful places to visit are Hadrian's Wall - with battle re-enactments in the summer months.  Also National Trust Houses and Gardens, Wordsworth House and Garden, Mirehouse, with connections to the Lake Poets, Wallington and Cragside and just into the Scottish Borders there are Threave and Caerlaverock Castles.
We have kept lots of playmobil, lego and doll's houses for younger visitors
