The semi-detached cottage is in the small village of Bouth, just over 1 mile from the main A590 road from the M6 (Junction 36 ) to Ulverston and Barrow-In-Furness.
On entering the village from the south, turn north at The White Hart pub. The cottage is approximately 100m. up this small road on the right hand side. There is ample space to park in the driveway. Clients are advised to drive beyond the cottages and turn to enter the drive. Care should be taken when reversing out as the view of and from the road is obscured.
The garage can be used by clients to store bikes or wood. There is a BBQ. The washing machine and drier are also located here. There is a small washing line in the drive.
The private garden is approached from the driveway by a path alongside the garage. There are two steps down into the garden, which is partly sloping with a level area with a picnic table. From here there are excellent views across fields to the woods. The garden boundaries are not securely fenced. The garden is on a higher level than the road adjoining the wall.
The front door opens directly onto the small road, but guests generally use the back door. This is accessed from the drive (two steps), across a small right of way to the adjoining cottage’s back garden. A further step leads into the kitchen. The back door has a light with a motion sensor. (There is no street lighting in the village).
The website description and photographs show details of the inside of the property, which is compact. There are two steps down from the kitchen to the hallway; from here the L-shaped stairs go to the bedrooms. The sitting room has a sofa, two tub chairs and window seats; there is an open fire. The bathroom and separate toilet are on the ground floor, opening off the front hall. The front bedroom (overlooking the fields and wood) has a 5’bed, wardrobe, two bedside chests and a chair. The rear bedroom (overlooking the adjacent cottage’s garden) has two 2’6” beds with a chest of drawers between them.
There is a night storage heater on each floor, and convector heaters in all other areas.
There is no landline in the cottage. Some mobile phones work in the cottage; however others work in the garage and the garden. There is a public telephone on the west end of the playground, opposite the pub.
There is a small shop, Post Office, baker and butcher at Greenodd (c. 2 miles); Booths, an excellent supermarket, is on the left at the first roundabout on the nearest edge of Ulverston (c. 5 miles). There is a weekly market and several other shops there.
