This delightful cottage backs on to the River Greta as it winds its way through Keswick and is in the middle of a row of traditional cottages. Set back from the main road running in to Keswick, Glendera retains great character and oozes charm. Originally a bobbin-makers cottage, Glendera now provides characterful yet comfortable accommodation for four people.

To the front of the cottage, and facing the road, is the car parking space suitable for two cars. A small garden and paved area separate the parking area from the house. There is a wooden bench where you can enjoy the morning sun and look out on the garden of bushes and shrubs.

The front door leads directly in to the open-plan living room, with a dining table & chairs to the front of the room and a kitchen to the rear. The lounge is furnished with a sofa and two easy chairs which are arranged around the log stove set within the original fireplace. The modern kitchen has a built-in oven with ceramic hob and a built-in fridge with ice compartment. The kitchen units provide plenty of storage, with additional storage provide by a stand-alone cupboard and wall-mounted dresser. A laminate floor extends throughout the ground floor of the property.

A rear door leads from the kitchen in to the sun room which benefits from the late afternoon and evening sun. The sun room has a slate floor and is a great place to dry wet clothing and boots. The sun room houses the washing machine with integral dryer. A further door leads out to the slate patio where tables and chairs are positioned to enjoy the view over the River Greta.

A curved staircase leads from the lounge to the first floor where there is a double bedroom to the front of the cottage and a single bed room and shower room to the rear. The double bedroom has a built-in pine wardrobe. An additional curved staircase leads up to the second floor where there is a further double bedroom in the eaves of the cottage – please note, there is only access from one side of the bed. A large Velux window provides plenty of light.

Please note that whilst there are bed-spaces for five people, the cottage accommodates a maximum of four people. Glendera is a pet friendly cottage.
