Spacious detached cottage for eight guests, situated on the way to the popular picturesque beauty spot of Tarn Hows, known for its scenic lakeside walks.

This lovely detached property is set in a quiet lane between Hawkshead and Tarn Hows. Situated between Coniston Water and Lake Windermere, this is a perfect base for exploring the Lake District. You could easily spend all day exploring Tarn Hows and Black Crag or Grizedale Forest, which is ideal for mountain biking. With stunning fell views, this is an idyllic and tranquil location. For shops, pubs and restaurants Hawkshead is a mile away, and Coniston is just a short drive. Esthwaite Water, Langdale, Ambleside, Coniston, Grizedale and Grasmere are all within easy reach, and Windermere and Bowness are just a short ferry ride away. With breath-taking scenery and activities for everyone, this idyllic spot guarantees a memorable holiday.

On entering this lovely cottage, with its white roughcast walls and traditional slate roof, the entrance hall leads you into the spacious and welcoming south-facing lounge, which has beautiful views over the fields and over to the wooded Latterbarrow ridge and beyond. The lounge has an open fire, TV, DVD, and also a useful and attractive dining area. Moving into the modern kitchen, you will find an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and coffee machine. There is also a utility area with a washing machine, freezer, large airing cupboard and plenty of space for coats and muddy boots. Exploring further you will find two bedrooms: a cosy double with lovely views across the garden, and a comfy single room with views to the front of the cottage. There is a ground floor bathroom complete with shower over the bath and WC, as well as an additional separate WC. Going upstairs, you will find two further bedrooms: a large double bedroom with wash basin and shaver point, and a spacious and bright bedroom with three single beds.

Stepping outside into the quarter-acre garden, there is plenty of space for children to play on the large lawn. Surrounded by mature shrubs and trees, with beautiful views, this is a charming spot to enjoy the peace and quiet of the rural location.

We decided on a last minute short break with Lakeland Hideaways and chose Black Fell Cottage. Ideally situated a short drive from Hawkshead (or a longer but pleasant walk for those so inclined!) this is a large comfortable property with pleasant views down from the sizeable garden. The kitchen has recently been replaced and is very nice. The open Read morefire quickly took the chill off the living room and there are storage and portable heaters for the rest of the house, making it a lovely place to come in winter. Beds very comfortable, as are the sofas and chairs in the living room. Hide

The cottage suited our family needs well and we enjoyed our stay . We will return in the future. we just would have liked a blind on the front top bedroom velux window as believe it or not the moon shone straight in when we were there !Beautiful sight but not for sleep ! Also would be great to have garden birdfeeders as we saw good birdlife flittinRead moreg about . Note from owners: There is an integral blind on the velux window in the bedroom which I think you may have missed although the moonlight does sound lovely! Hide

We have had many fun weekends up in the Lakes and Black Fell cottage is wonderfully positioned in a rural location. We spend our days walking so only need somewhere warm and comfortable to spend the night. The inside of the cottage is simple, not smart or luxury but generally it has everything we need. Hot water can be a little temperamental but thRead moree open fire really gets the place lovely and cosy. The fitted kitchen could do with a little refreshing as it's worn out and the lawn could do with mowing to give it a slightly more 'cared for' feel. If you are looking for a simple, cost effective place to stay to enjoy the outdoors, this is perfect. Hide
