5 Forest Houses, Ennerdale Bridge


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Moss Cottage is one of a small, pretty row in the charming rural village of Ennerdale Bridge in the tranquil western Lake District. The thriving village has a strong sense of community and is surrounded by fells and farmland, just over a mile from Ennerdale Water, whilst still offering a school, two pubs, a church and a community centre. The two country pubs both serve food, as does The Gather', a local community run café and small shop, popular with both villagers and tourists, particularly cyclists and walkers on the Coast to Coast routes. It also hosts a variety of activities including weekly group activities and even has a small gym facility. The primary school is well supported and the church lies at the heart of the village in this idyllic location, yet only a twenty minute drive from the historic towns of Cockermouth and Whitehaven. The property has been totally renovated by the present owner and newly decorated throughout within the last two years. Downstairs, this home offers spacious hallway, a light filled open plan lounge/diner with working open fireplace, a country style modern kitchen and handy downstairs wc off the rear hall. Upstairs, there are three good sized bedrooms and a bathroom. There is ample storage space both upstairs and downstairs. Externally, the delightful front and rear landscaped gardens have flower beds at different levels, filled with roses, shrubs and perennials, paved paths and patios, a rose arbour and an attractive summerhouse to sit in and relax with a cup of tea or glass of wine whilst enjoying the views.
