Homely 17th century cottage in the heart of the village of Burgh-by-Sands (6 miles from Carlisle) on the route of Hadrian's Wall. Newly rennovated, the property comfortably sleeps four with two double bedrooms, one of which is complete with an ensuite cloakroom. The whole house is yours, including a spacious kitchen-diner and cosy living room.

Located on the Hadrian's Wall walking route (7 miles from the end) and National Cycle Network Route 72, ideally situated for exploring the Solway Coast.

The space
The ground floor contains an open plan kitchen/diner with a separate cosy living room complete with TV, DVD player, Chromecast, and cosy wood burning stove.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster, gas oven and hob, and washing machine. In addition to this, there is a dining table and chairs suitable for four people.

Completing the ground floor is a bathroom comprising of bath with shower over, W.C and wash hand basin.

Stairs lead to the first floor which has two double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite cloakroom. A cupboard on the landing houses the tumble drier. The second bedroom has an extra, reduced height, space, which can be used as a sleeping platform for children ( quality thick single mattress provided), or for a travel cot.

For small children, a high chair, and stair gate are also provided.

Every room has central heating.

Originally the village tailors shop, the cottage was also the birthplace in 1770 of poet John Stagg

Guest access
The whole of the house is accessible to guests. Although the main bathroom is downstairs guests need to be able to climb stairs to the first floor bedrooms. In addition to this there is a spacious garden with ample parking for two cars, a seating area, and a wildlife pond.

Other things to note
We provide complementary WiFi. The mobile phone signals in the village are improving all the time but they are patchy in a few areas. We get a signal in most parts of the cottage, and the phone roaming data also works. Phone reception and reasonable WiFi signal also extends to the lower garden areas.

Check-in can be in person or with a secured key safe, it is completely up to you.
