Gatefoot Cottages, Windermere Road, Staveley

Guide price

Bedrooms: 2
OVERVIEW In a quiet corner on the banks of the River Gowan, this two bedroom cottage is a true find. Located in a cluster of similar traditional properties, the cottage has accommodation over two floors and has period features throughout. Stripped wooden floors and doors, a cosy woodburner and leaded light windows all add to the character. The lounge overlooks the forecourt garden at the front and there is a kitchen diner in the middle of the property. The ground floor bathroom is a good size and there are two first floor double bedrooms. The rear garden has been gravelled for ease and there are steps leading down to the rivers edge - a truly lovely location. Staveley is popular with both permanent and second home buyers with a range of facilities. There is good access to the lakes and wider area.

No onward chain.
