|A lovely, romantic hideaway for couples, Victoria House has a charming galleried double bedroom above a living/dining/kitchen with bathroom off. The cottage, in Gunnerside, is set up a flight of outside steps, meaning the living area has terrific views overlooking the patchwork of Gunnerside meadows. With all mod cons, having been recently refurbished to a high standard, the cottage has everything you will need for a restful holiday away from the stresses and cares of workaday life in the city. Spend the day rambling over surrounding fells and moors and come back to the relaxation of beautiful Victoria House, a stone's throw from Ghyllfoot Tearoom and bistro. Extra sgle bed in bedroom. Sleeps 2/3. Pet-friendly! Sorry, no smoking.
