Over looking Wainwright's favourite square mile of the Lake District
About Jonathan Vaillant
Hello. My partner and I moved to beautiful Borrowdale after holidaying here since Childhood. It was a dream that came true after living in the Midlands for 39 years. I often still say to my children that I still cannot believe I live here.
Jonathan Vaillant purchased this Cottage in 2001
