Brockstone Cottage - a new look for our Lakes cottage with amazing views

The lounge, kitchen and dining area of Brockstone Cottage have been refurbished. Here are a couple of photos of the new look lounge.

We've removed the existing fireplace, taken out lots of bricks that had been inserted over the years, and gone back to the original fireplace. There's a huge slate lintel, which has a couple of holes drilled in it. We're not sure exactly how these were used in the past, but lots of old  Lakeland fireplaces have them.

We now have a beautiful log burning stove. Cosy. You can see the new curtains, carpet and furniture too.

The back of the lounge has been opened up to reveal a couple of windows onto the banking. These were previously hidden by a stud partition. We love these windows. We're also very happy with our new sofas.

The original  window seat is still a lovely feature, and the seating arrangement now makes the most of the beautiful views.

We'll be writing more and showing more pics in the next few days. We still have 1 week available in the school holidays from 27 August . After that, our next available dates are from mid October.
