Nurses Cottage is situated in the pretty village of Askham, with two pubs, a Michelin starred restaurant at Askham Hall, with an outdoor swimming pool and local shop. Also, home to Lowther Castle with spectacular gardens, an adventure playground and cycle hire. If you are looking to visit the Northern Lakes and Fells then this detached cottage is ideally positioned. Picturesque Ullswater and Pooley Bridge are just 10 minutes away in a car. The owners have lovingly and tastefully restored this detached cottage retaining the character of the original features but bringing a contemporary feel throughout, which will be comfortable for families and groups of friends to relax and enjoy, with a cosy wood burner in the living room.
From the front door there are numerous walks to enjoy including the River Eamont where the historical sites of King Arthur’s round table and Mayburgh Henge can be viewed. The nearby fells include the High Street range, 5 miles away, and Helvellyn only 10 miles away. The cottage is ideally placed for enjoying the activities around Ullswater, 4 miles, where excellent walking and cycling amidst splendid scenery can be enjoyed. If you enjoy a picnic, why not pack a rug and goodies and explore the numerous beaches around Ullswater, perfect to relax on and rejuvenate from busy lives. A 15-minute drive from the cottage is Haweswater, where you can walk up to the tranquil Small Water for a picnic and paddle.
To make the most of the spectacular scenery take a cruise on the Ullswater steamers, which sail throughout the year. Watersports are also close by with rowing boats and kayaks. If you’re looking to explore Penrith which is known as the ’gateway of the Northern Lakes’ and the doorstep to the Eden Valley, this local market town certainly won’t disappoint. It hosts not only history galore but a good variety of independent and high street shops and restaurants, and also includes a small cinema.
Keswick is just 20 miles away where walkers are offered an abundance of walking and climbing, or perhaps a leisurely cruise on Derwentwater is on your to do list. A stroll in the market town offers further shops, pubs and restaurants to savour and delight.
