Built on the fell-side over 3 levels, Spedding Fold offers superb views across Langdale towards Lingmoor Fell. To coin a famous phrase, you can see the pub from here! (Only a five minute walk through Walthwaite meadow will get you there). The quiet location is within 15 minutes drive of Ambleside & Grasmere, with abundant walks from the door meaning the car can take a break as well. Ample parking in front of the house too.
Spedding Folds owners Geoff and Louise have set up the house to serve all the needs of a large family group. With plenty of space to spread out between the lounge and conservatory with pool/snooker table.(Grandparents take note, make one the play room and one the adults room). Now with Wifi so you can easily keep in touch with friends, or work if you have to!
Catering for 10 can be quite a challenge but with the kitchen fitted with 2 ovens and 2 hobs space for all the food wont be a problem. The dining room with table seating 10, joins both the kitchen and the garden. The fell side garden and patio area are great for kids to run off steam or for eating outside on warm summer evenings.
The bedrooms are spacious and light, with all rooms to the front of the house providing great views of the valley and the rear rooms look out at the garden and fell-side. The top floor family room has an ensuite shower room, the master bedroom on the first floor has a shower room, with large walk in shower, sink and w.c. The first floor also benefits from a newly fitted separate w.c.
On the ground floor the property has a double garage, which is accessed from the lower hallway and down some steps or from the outside using the up and over garage doors, this houses a full size table tennis table great for entertaining the children, and with plenty of room for storing bikes, canoes etc. It is not used to park cars. There is room on the driveway for a maximum of 4 cars.
We want our holiday cottages to be a 'home for home'. All the beds are made up ready for you, towels are included so no need to bring those, and shower mats are also provided. Two tea towels and a set of oven gloves/oven cloth will be in the kitchen along with a starter pack that includes: washing up liquid, kitchen roll, toilet roll, basic cleaning products, a bin bag in each bin and a few dishwasher tabs. This is just to 'start you off'; you will need to buy your own once these have run out.
Fire Pack / Logs available to purchase form the Good Life Office.
