Moorfoot Court Cottages

Sleeps 10
Bedrooms 5
Moorfoot Court Cottages are two beautifully decorated self-catering cottages that sit across each other, sharing an ample courtyard space. The layout of the two cottages makes Moorfoot Court Cottages ideal for two families to holiday together while maintaining an element of privacy or perhaps a group of friends or walkers.

Situated in the small village of Clifton (which is a 5-minute drive from Penrith), you're close to Lake District National Park and popular towns, including Keswick and Pooley Bridge, as well as the Yorkshire Dales National. Both are hugely popular for their dramatic scenery and fabulous walks.

Rose Barn - Sleeps six.

A stylish, luxury cottage is located on a 17th Century Farmstead within a private courtyard. The property's recent, high-standard renovation perfectly combines period charm with contemporary open-plan living.

Enter Rose Barn and take your breath away by its light, bright space, and decor. The open-plan design makes for an ideal place for a get-together of friends and families, and there is plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen/dining space comfortably seats six and is perfect for a catch-up around the dining table. At the same time, the chef of your group cooks a tasty meal in the fabulously appointed kitchen with all the mod cons you could need during your stay, including a dishwasher.

The cosy living area offers a seat for everyone and a flame-effect electric fire perfect for putting your feet up to enjoy a relaxing evening catching up on your shows on the wall-mounted smart TV. You will find a convenient utility room with a washer and dryer from the living space, perfect for those longer stays or after those long days of exploring on foot or bike. Plastic glassware is also provided for taking a 'glass' of bubbles into the bubbles of your hot tub outside! There is a lovely outdoor space for the whole group to enjoy al-fresco dining or a BBQ on a beautiful day.

Head to the first floor via the U-shaped staircase, a gorgeous key feature of the property, onto the large landing area at the top that gives guests a magnificent view of the large barn window and an opportunity to reflect on the property's historical function.

The three comfortable bedrooms provide a great night's sleep and have been decorated with style and care, with Velux-style windows flooding the rooms with light. The bathroom has a modern suite that provides all you could need for a pamper and a soak after a day's adventure. The soft furnishings have been chosen carefully, with the bedding and towels from Bedeck, providing you with a real sense of style and comfort during your stay.

The Welcome to Rose Barn Handbook provides guests with all the information they need to feel right at home, and a welcome pack is provided to guests with luxury tea bags, coffee, sugar, milk & butter, homemade jam, home baking and a loaf of bread.

Lilac Barn - Sleeps four.

Lilac Barn is a fabulous ground-floor barn conversion located within a private gravel courtyard on a 17th Century Farmstead. It has been recently renovated to a beautifully high standard and is an ideal base from which to explore the Lake District and Eden Valley with family or friends.

It is easy to see that Lilac Barn has been thoughtfully designed with its guests in mind, from the welcome packs for guests (including the 4-legged variety) to its stylishly seamless accessibility features. It is wheelchair accessible throughout with wide doors and low switches and has been decorated with gorgeous antiques and pieces that have been so lovingly restored.

The open-plan living and kitchen area is a great communal space. The kitchen has modern appliances that include a washing machine /dryer, a dishwasher, an oven & hob, and plenty of storage.

A four-seat dining table sits in the middle of the open-plan space. The adjacent living area provides two two-seat sofas, and the beautifully luxurious curtains along with a cosy cast iron electric stove give the feeling of a lovely and warm 'country cottage' experience.

A wide hallway takes you to the two bedrooms, one of which is en-suite, both beautifully decorated with fresh sage and grey tones and adorned complimentary decor, including lovingly restored wardrobes and beds. At the end of the hallway, you will find the sizeable wet room that has been amazingly designed to have discreet yet practical support/grab rails and a seat that blends in with the rest of the room's modern aesthetic. The soft furnishings have been chosen carefully, with the bedding and towels from Bedeck, providing you with a real sense of style and comfort during your stay.

The Welcome to Lilac Barn Handbook provides guests with all the information they need to feel right at home, and a welcome pack is provided to guests with luxury tea bags, coffee, sugar, milk & butter, homemade jam, home baking and a loaf of bread. A welcome pack is also provided for any dogs staying with you, with a dog towel, metal dog bowl and a few treats for our four-legged visitors!
