Little Swinside
Little Swinside Cottage has been converted from the original barn attached to the farmhouse; there are old oak beams in the main rooms. Most of the accommodation is upstairs - the double bedroom, sitting/dining room, kitchen, and bathroom. Downstairs there is a delightful patio room with exceptional views down the Lorton valley and French windows that lead onto a small terrace with table and chairs. The patio room also has a sofa bed that can be used for children. For large groups Little Swinside can be let with the Farmhouse next door; the two are connected via a lockable door. See below for photos, information, and availability.

Patio Room
The downstairs patio room opens out through sliding patio doors onto its own small terrace overlooking the garden and the valley beyond. The views are magnificent.

This room is centrally heated. It has a sofa bed and can be used as an extra bedroom for children. There are beams and other original features.
Double Bedroom
Stairs lead to the first floor and main living areas.

The double bedroom has an oak beamed ceiling and built-in wardrobes. It shares that same wonderful view over the Lorton valley, but you can also see towards the distant Scottish mountains (especially once the trees shed their leaves in autumn!)
Sitting/Dining Room
The cosy sitting/dining room is furnished with sofa and arm chairs, dining table, and a TV with DVD. The room looks north and east towards the Lorton Fells

There are are also lots of books, maps, and games that you are welcome to use.
Log burner in sitting room
The sitting room also has a log burner for those autumn, winter, and spring evenings - or anytime you want a little more warmth.
Kitchen
A door leads from the sitting room into the galley kitchen. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric cooker and a ceramic hob, microwave and fridge. (There are laundry facilities in the basement below the cottage, and a large chest freezer there for guests to use, accessible from the exterior).
Bathroom
The bathroom is next to the bedroom and includes a shower over the bath.
Patio
This is the view from the patio looking south east towards Whiteside - in winter.

The Garden
The garden is shared with the Farmhouse and larger cottage. It has a picnic table and benches for enjoying the view, hammocks under the trees, and gated access onto the open fells with wonderful walks right on your doorstep.
Dog friendly & path to Lorton village
The garden also has an enclosed area where dogs are free to roam safely.

In the lower garden there are free range hens - and you are welcome to buy their eggs!

Through another gate a green lane leads in 20 minutes to Lorton village with its excellent village shop. The friendly dog-welcoming Wheatsheaf pub is 10 minutes further on and serves a very good menu!
