THE HOUSE

 

Rockwood is an attractive detached Victorian country house built in the traditional Lake District style.  The house is set in extensive gardens on the edge of Eskdale Green.


 

Sitting rooms

The main sitting room is comfortably furnished with views to Birker and Muncaster fells.  Oil-fired central heating, an open fire in the main sitting room and multi-fuel stove in the snug.

Dining room

Light and airy with seating for six people.  A large west-facing window provides plenty of light.  A high-chair is available for small children.

Kitchen

Modern fitted kitchen equipped with range cooker, microwave, fridge-freezer and all the usual kitchen appliances and utensils, including full size dishwasher.

Utility room

Automatic washing machine, iron and ironing board, dehumidifier, drying racks, WC and wash-hand basin.  Ample space to dry clothes, boots etc.

Bedrooms

Three large double bedrooms and one single bedroom.  All bedrooms are centrally-heated and have views over the garden to fields and fells beyond.  Bedroom one has a king-sized bed, bedroom two a standard-sized double bed and bedroom three two single beds.  The fourth bedroom has a single bed.  Bed linen and towels are provided.  A travel cot is available on request.

Bathroom

There is a large bathroom fitted and equipped to a high standard.  The facilities include a walk-in shower, bath, wash hand basin and WC.

Much of Rockwood’s charm arises from its site - an elevated position on a hillside providing views across fells and fields and a quiet location set well back from, and above, the road through Eskdale Green.  

Gardens

Rockwood is set in approximately an acre of terraced gardens on a steep hillside planted with an abundance of shrubs and herbaceous plants.

PARKING AND ACCESS

A short, smooth but fairly steep gravel path leads up to the house from a parking area at the front gate.  There are also steps.  There is off-road parking for one large vehicle (eg an estate car or 4x4) near the gate with additional parking in the village (400 yards along the lane).

Note that young children may require supervision in the garden because of the relatively steep terrain, stone steps and rocks.

Please be aware of these factors when considering whether Rockwood would be suitable for your party.
