The Schoolhouse
With Log Burning Stove & Wifi

The Schoolhouse and integrated conservatory / garden room is a detached building facing due south up the fell, offering character studio accommodation for two people. It combines the old with the new and has two multifuel "log burning" stoves.

Entrance is either through the garden room or through a gate and path to the front door where you enter into the combined lounge / dining / kitchen / bedroom area with exposed beams and stone walls.

A door leads from the bedroom area to the bathroom which has a spacious shower, hand basin and WC.

Another door leads to the conservatory / garden room. where there is a bistro table and chairs and a second multifuel stove. Whilst not practical all the year round, it provides additional living space, weather permitting,

Nb. This is a working greenhouse (although in a limited way) so the owners reserve the right to access it on occasions, although this will generally be done whilst guests are out. Occasionally other guests will enter to collect logs.

All areas are furnished with care and thought.

From the bedroom and garden there are views towards Scafell Pike, Bow Fell and Crinkle Craggs

An enclosed private south facing garden area surrounds two sides of the Schoolhouse and there is use of a nearby field.
A gas BBQ and tools are provided.

We welcome a variety of pets (with well behaved owners!)
