This cosy stone and slate detached period cottage has an interesting history and has been sympathetically renovated to create the lovely, atmospheric property it is today. With one double bedroom and an occasional bedroom, it has become an incredibly successful holiday let. The property is in an enviable position in a wooded area on the outskirts of Storth within the Arnside Silverdale Area of Outstanding National Beauty and has a patio, a terraced garden and an allocated parking space.
