Outside Description

There’s a glazed door giving light and access to the outside, where there’s an old stone store big enough for bicycles. The Carthouse has a private gravelled area, which is fenced for dogs. Parking for 3 cars.

Downstairs Description

The Carthouse is on three levels, with underfloor heating throughout apart from the top bedroom which has a radiator.

The Carthouse has its own entrance, with ramped access for wheelchair users, and enters into a hallway. The ground floor has a comfortable lounge which has a stone fireplace with a wood-burning stove to provide a cosy feature, or to supplement the underfloor heating in the coldest weather.

Off the lounge is the large kitchen and dining room with exposed stonework and French doors to the outside where steps lead up to the rear grounds. The dining area has a table and chairs to seat up to six and plenty of good quality crockery, cutlery and glasses are provided.

On the ground floor a large wetroom has been designed with the needs of our disabled guests in mind,

First Floor Description

The first floor has two fully furnished bedrooms with comfortable six foot wide superking-size beds which can be split into two singles if desired. The master bedroom features exposed timbers and stonework, and has a washbasin.

Along from the two bedrooms there is a bathroom fitted with washbasin, wc, towel warmer and a whirlpool bath specially shaped for showering, with a thermostatically controlled mains-pressure shower over.

Second Floor Description

Another flight of stairs leads to the third bedroom in the apex of the barn, again with a comfortable six foot wide superking-size bed which can be split into two singles if desired. This bedroom is heated by its own individually controlled radiator rather than underfloor, and has velux windows with a good view of Wild Boar Fell. Headroom is restricted only at the extremities of the bedroom, so it is fine for adults.
