Traditional lakeland cottage with open fire and beamed ceilings.

The property oozes ’olde worlde’ charm with each room having original beams S85070 still retains its slate flagged floor. S85070 was originally a yeoman’s or statesman’s house (farmhouse) and following that it became an inn. In 1769 the poet Thomas Gray went on a tour of the lakes and S85070 is mentioned in his ’Journal’ which was published in 1775 after his death in 1771. In more recent times S85070 was drawn by A Wainwright and can be seen in his book ’The Coast to Coast Walk’.
