Emerald Bank Cottage, sleeps 6-8, with games room

Cottage -
4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Uldale, Lake District, Cumbria, England
Emerald Bank Cottage is situated in the most spectacular northern part of the Lake District. It looks like a traditional lakeland cottage but has every modern appliance, with everything you’ll need for a walking or family holiday in the Lake District - including maps, walking books, boot racks, dog basket/bowls and a games room with table football and air hockey (doubles as bedroom 4 with a futon bed).

The cottage is situated in Uldale, a small rural village in the Lake District National Park between Bassenthwaite Lake and Caldbeck. The village has a tea room, tennis court and adventure playground and the Snooty Fox Inn - serving a variety of real ales and superb food.
