Perfect for those looking to enjoy a romantic escape in Cumbria, sit back and relax in the hot tub after a day of exploring.

Coachman’s Cottage is a unique and characterful cottage, situated in the grounds of Ravenstone Country Manor in the quaint country village of Melmerby. This beautifully appointed one-bedroomed cottage features a cobbled courtyard, a wealth of beams and vaulted ceiling, with spectacular fell views from the panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows in the garden room. This is a true romantic getaway with a private garden, patio and a superb hot tub to enjoy the stunning views by day and the twinkling stars by night.

Situated alongside the manor house and surrounded by llamas, ponies and wildlife, it has a real ’wow’ factor with vaulted ceilings and amazing views. The cosy underfloor heating is complemented by a wood burner for that romantic night by the fire. The luxurious and quirky beamed bathroom features a slipper bath and French-style basin, en-suite to the bedroom. This gorgeous bedroom with brass bed, French armoire and mood lighting, features a huge, original, stone fireplace with inset large flat screen TV.

The main living room also features an old stone fireplace complete with original Victorian set pot, historically used by the manor house servants for the laundry, and above the log store sits a 65" wall-mounted Smart TV that is viewed from the huge Chesterfield sofa opposite.

The beautifully appointed kitchen simply exudes charm and character with beamed, vaulted ceiling, hand painted units with a large range cooker and oak worktops with double sink. The garden room is open plan to the main living room and is complete with a large comfy sofa where you can relax and enjoy the fantastic views over the surrounding countryside.

Melmerby is a lovely, quiet and peaceful little village with picturesque village green and boasts a quaint tea shop, village bakery with eatery and gift shop, antique shop, pub and village hall. There is also a private swimming pool that can be booked independently, just 100 yards away from the cottage.

The area is good for lovely walks with Melmerby Fell close by. Situated on the A686, which runs from Penrith to Corbridge, chosen by the AA magazine as one of the ’Ten Greatest Drives’. From Melmerby, the road climbs the Hartside Pass from where you will get magnificent views across the Solway Firth to Scotland.

    Absolutely stunning cottage with amazing views, added extra of log burner and hot tub. Never left the cottage apart from one night to go to the pub down the road. Very cosy and every single little detail has been thought of. Mary and Graham very welcoming and could not do enough for you. Already planning a return trip.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thanks so much for the review, it’s great for others to know it’s been personally recommended as it’s new to the market. We love the cottage ourselves and it is fab to think that others can enjoy the love and attention we have lavished on the lovely old building. See you again, I’m sure and thanks again.

    I have been to loads of hot tub cottages over the winter periods but non quiet as stunning as this place. The views were stunning and very much the escapism that we needed. I usually never see the home owners but at this place we did and we were treat like family. The cottage is a large cottage for two and you want for nothing - every attention to detail has been very well thought out. I’ve enjoyed every minute of my break. Mary the and Graham showed us around the manor attached to the cottage and it is utterly stunning - the history of the manor is fabulous and it’s interesting that we stayed in the old converted servants laundry rooms with original features. Mary thanks for having us and your hospitality and the recommendations you gave us especially the antique shop. Highly recommended.

    A beautiful cottage in a great location. We booked this for a break away after Christmas. The cottage is set in the quiet village of Melmerby, a great base for us to travel into the lakes. On arrival we were warmly met by Mary and Graham who showed us around, the cottage was homely and has everything you could want or need. A great place to spend the evenings, sitting by the roaring fire or in the hot tub admiring the amazing view of the Pennines. We can’t wait to visit again.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for taking the time to do a review for the cottage. We are so pleased we seem to have got things just right for you and look forward to seeing you here again in the future.
