John Dalton Cottage

| Ref: W8625
Grade 3 Star rating

Quiet village location

Hidden behind the plain 17th century lakeland exterior, lies this unique gem of a cottage. It has exposed beams, a superb dual-fuel cast stove, a 17th century stone bread oven and a winding stone staircase, together with modern comfort. This delightful terraced cottage was the birthplace in 1766 of John Dalton, founder of the atomic theory. Extremely quiet and peaceful, it is very close to the boundary of the Lake District National Park with the lakes of Loweswater, Crummock and Buttermere, within 10 miles by country lanes. The market town of Cockermouth is 3 miles. Shop 1.5 miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

Ground floor: Living room with French door. Dining room/kitchen. Utility room. Uneven, winding stone stairs to first floor: 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet. Low ceilings and beams throughout.

Woodburner in living room (initial fuel included). Gas central heating, electricity and bed linen included. Freeview TV. Video and small library. DVD and small library. Stereo/CD. Electric cooker. Garden furniture. Garage (1 car).
