Always a popular holiday venue Brunt How is a charming 19thC property standing in an elevated positon with beautuful views across the river Brathay towards Black Fell and Wetherlam.

Set at the entrance to the Langdale Valley, Brunt How is ideally placed for a walking holiday in the central lakes. Loughrigg Fell rises behind the house and there are many walks in the immediate area as well as easy access to the main tops of Great Langdale, Silver How, Pike o'Blisco and on to the highest peaks of the central fells. With Ambleside only two miles away you are well placed for shopping and eating out. Your local pub at Skelwith Bridge is about half a mile distant as is the well known Chesters overlooking the river.

The property has a wonderfully spacious feel retaining Arts and Craft features typical of the period, the mullioned windows with panelled reveals and a rose architrave being particularly notable.

Accommodation: A steep drive leads to the elevated terraced area in front of the property. Front door entrance into the roomy dining hall (open fire) with beamed ceiling, period fireplace and large table for family meals. The spacious sitting room is a real feature with fine views from the dual aspect floor to ceiling windows (open fire, flat screen TV, Blu-ray DVD, iPod/Hi-Fi, Wi-Fi). Good sized recently fitted kitchen with breakfast table and chairs, as well as a very useful drying room, downstairs wc and basin. Back door.

Stairs from the dining hall access the three bedrooms. The master to the front has fine views which you can admire whilst sitting up in your king-sized sleigh bed (new en-suite bath with shower over, basin and wc). A second spacious bedroom is a twin with en-suite shower, basin and wc (two pull-out beds). The third bedroom is a smaller twin having use of the adjacent family bathroom (bath with shower over, basin and wc).

Furnishings are very comfortable with a traditional feel and the house has fitted carpets throughout.

Outside: Mature sloping gardens with pathways, steps and an elevated terraced lawn feature large rhododendrons, azaleas and towering firs, offering a riot of Spring colour. Front patio area where you can relax on sunny days and admire the views. Use of Victorian greenhouse with table tennis and indoor seating. There is also a small seasonal stream serving a little pond that nestles below the rocky outcrop near the entrance. Parking for two cars. Pub and cafe half a mile. Ambleside village 2 miles.
