Perhaps head out for a visit to one of the beautiful local villages in the afternoon, such as Arnside with its attractive promenade with stunning coastal views over the bay towards the mountains and a range of independent shops, or a stroll down to the doggy-friendly local pub for an early evening meal. Maybe you'll spot some deer in the surrounding woods as you sit on the cottage patio enjoying a drink in the evening, or retire indoors if the temperature drops and put a couple of logs in the wood burning stove in the lovely lounge-dining room with its generous squashy leather sofa. Nestle down into cosy sheepskins and blankets and enjoy the view into the woods over a mug of hot chocolate. No need to fall out of date while you're away with unlimited wifi, large screen Panasonic HD LCD TV, Humax digital TV recorder and hi fi with iPod dock. Or just enjoy being offline during your stay - Rock Cottage has a selection of board games and books including guides to the local area and plentiful wildlife and a range of contemporary, classic and literary fiction. You might want to end the day enjoying a soak in Rock Cottage's fresh and relaxing modern country bathroom before collapsing into the comfortable king size iron bed with quality high thread count pure cotton bedding. No traffic noise or oppressive street lighting to interrupt your dreams - but you might hear an owl's hoot or the call of a rutting stag. The cottage has full adult single-bed sized 3ft bunk beds in the second bedroom, which is adjacent to the master, and we also provide a basket of toys, some childrens' books and optional cot and high-chair for little guests. The cottage was built around 200 years ago by a sailor and has much character which has been retained during careful and sympathetic renovation. Whether you are looking for a place for relaxation and recuperation or a base for an outdoor adventure, Rock Cottage offers all the home comforts and a beautiful base for your holiday in the south Lakeland area.More
