Named after Scafell, the second highest mountain in England and neighbour to England’s highest, Scafell Pike, Scafell Cottage presents itself as the largest of our cottages and potentially the oldest, as according to a National Park archaeologist, the barns may have preceded the building of The Farmhouse by up to 100 years!
Scafell Cottage is highly recommended for large groups or families, as well as parties with members who may have limited mobility or require ground floor facilities. It is delightfully open plan with a good flow for families and groups. The children often sit playing their games on the carpeted area between the lounge and kitchen leaving the adults free to relax on the sofas. As well as the full Sky TV package found in all of the Lake District cottages, Scafell has many novels to choose from and there is a CD player, ipod dock and children’s games to entertain everyone also. There is plenty of space for everyone to sit together at mealtimes, whilst there is also privacy, generated by the layout of the bedrooms. The backdoors from the kitchen open out onto the lawned paddock affording lovely fell views so step out of an evening and light the barbecue to enjoy dining al fresco.
