Romantische Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wil je een romantisch weekend weg naar 'the Lakes' en een cottage huren? Dan is the Turnip House precies wat je zoekt. Het is een beetje afgelegen in een klein dorpje, omgeven door mooi natuur, maar zeker niet ver weg van the Lake district. Het is juist fijn om buiten de (eventuele) drukte te verblijven. De cottage is super mooi ingericht, het voelt echt aan als je eigen huis. Zeer ruim, maar met een knus indruk en je kan lekker chillen voor de open haard. De eigenaren hebben overal aan gedacht tijdens het inrichten, het is erg stijlvol en ontzettend schoon. Boven is de mooie slaapkamer met een luxe badkamer. Steve heeft ons warm onthaald en vele tips gegeven voor uitstapjes. Op de site staat dat je bij hun brandhout kan kopen, hier hebben we om gevraagd en werden vriendelijk uitgelachen omdat het augustus was! Echter toen we thuis kwamen s'avonds, lag er een emmer brandhout voor de deur en konden we de open haard aansteken.. samenvattend een erg romantische cottage! :)
