A peaceful lane known as the Newkin runs from the south side of Bainbridge village green and branches into a private gated nook of four individual dales terraced cottages, a very intimate corner, with Lion Cottage central to the terrace. Now charmingly restored and brought into the modern era with style and comfort. The retention of wide board doors and bedroom floor, stone stairway and alcoves shows the essence of past times.
Entry is to a cosy living area with lounge seating around a wood-burning stove set in a Victorian surround with hearth and a dining area to one side. Adjoining the lounge to the rear is a well fitted galley kitchen with ample space to prepare for those romantic meal occasions. An original stone stairway winds from the lounge to a double bedroom and a bathroom with bath, shower, washbasin and toilet.
At the other side of the nook from the cottage are low outbuildings and behind these by way of a narrow alley is an enclosed and secluded patio garden with gravel surface and flower borders. Nearby on the Newkin is a designated parking area for the cottage which is adjacent to a gated access to the garden although the cottage is easily reached directly from the Newkin.
An interesting upper dales cottage providing a high standard of accommodation with a cosy atmosphere making it an ideal holiday home for two, whatever the weather.
