Woodend Self Catering Holiday Cottages & Bed and Breakfast

Ulpha, Between the
Duddon & Eskdale Valleys

Holiday cottage in Lake District
The Schoolhouse Layout

Woodend SchoolhouseEntrance is either through the garden room or through a gate and path to the front door where you enter into the combined lounge / dining / kitchen / bedroom area with exposed beams and stone walls.

A door leads from the bedroom area to the bathroom which has a spacious shower, hand basin and WC.

Another door leads to the "sitooterie" (a Scots colloquial term meaning a place to sit oot!) / conservatory / garden room, where there is a bistro table and chairs and a second multifuel stove and the log store. Whilst not practical all the year round, it provides additional living space, weather permitting.

Nb. This is a working greenhouse (although in a limited way), so the owners reserve the right to access it on occasions, although this will generally be done whilst guests are out.

All areas are furnished with care and thought.

From the garden there are views towards Scafell, Bowfell and Crinkle Craggs.

An enclosed private south facing garden area surrounds two sides of the Schoolhouse and there is use of a nearby field.

For Internet connection the Schoolhouse is hardwired to the main router so is very fast.

A gas BBQ and tools are provided.

We welcome a variety of pets (with well behaved owners!)
