Todd Crag House

This beautiful 16th Century gentleman's residence has been sympathetically restored to provide luxurious self catering apartments on two levels in the pretty hamlet of Clappersgate. Guests are able to relax and enjoy the delightful cottage garden with patio in this sun trap.  Loughrigg Fell can be accessed from the path adjacent. Todd Crag is a tranquil retreat on the road between Langdale and bustling Ambleside. Less than 1 mile away you will find an array of shops, restaurants and pubs to meet all needs.

Porch At the front of the property is the traditional entrance porch with timber clad slate seats (a sunny place to sit and read the morning papers or simply watch the world go by).

Hall A spacious Victorian panelled hall with the original Victorian tiles, leaded window and oak beams.

Lounge Extremely spacious yet cosy lounge with wide screen TV (digital and satellite channels) and beautifully furnished with deep cushioned sofas, a window seat, Laura Ashley fabrics and the all important warming open fire set in a magnificent oak and stone surround.

Kitchen and Diner. The large Shaker style kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for self catering with a glass dining table and chairs.

Master Bedroom The spacious bedroom with king size bed is beautifully furnished with co-ordinating fabrics with another window seat and plump cushions.

Bathroom The bathroom is designed for relaxation with bath / powerful shower.

Utility. Convenient large utility room housing the washing machine, drier and central heating boiler. Lots of room for boots, rucksacks and waterproofs.

Parking. Park within the grounds of the property with easy access to the entrance through the enclosed sunny patio garden.

Heating. The house has full gas central heating and double glazing.

Wi Fi. Free

Outside. There is a private cottage garden for your use. This sunny spot is ideal for morning coffee afternoon tea or evening aperitifs.

If you enjoy low level walks the track adjacent to the property leads directly onto the fells and our personal favourite is onto Todd Crag and beyond. A 10 minute walk along the path rising from the cottage, known locally as 'Ever Turning', provides fabulous views across Windermere and Waterhead.

The Victorian hall with oak door, the spacious lounge, the bedroom, the kitchen, the beams in the bathroom,  the courtyard garden all provide for a lovely stay in the Lakes.
