Property code: SZ557

With magnificent views of majestic fells, this holiday home welcomes you back from adventures and provides you with somewhere homely to relax. Continue your day outside on the patio or sit inside by the French doors.

Get your boots on and walk 1.5 miles to explore the fells in Dodd Wood. Keep your eyes peeled for red squirrels and osprey which you may be able to see from the viewing platform. Stroll 2 miles down to the lake for a waterside wander along the west shore. At the northern end of the lake is The Lakes Distillery where adults can enjoy a fun day out and stock up your favourite tipple to accompany dinner. Mirehouse and Gardens is a lovely place to visit with little ones in tow as there are woodland playgrounds and plenty of lovely walks to follow. Treat yourself to a night off from the kitchen and visit the local pub in Bassenthwaite village (1.5 miles).

Descend stairs to reach this home and head into the ground-floor living space. Open-plan, the kitchen, lounge and diner fit together to create a welcoming hub of the home. Get comfortable and admire the views through the French doors or sit in front of the TV/DVD for a relaxing night in. Near the doors, the dining table seats all guests so you can eat together and raise a toast to the chef. Just beyond is the kitchen, with a cooker with ceramic hob and electric oven, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave and a dishwasher, find all you need to cook up a storm and clear up afterwards. Though small, the kitchen is stylish and has good worktop space. Completing the ground floor is the family shower room with WC where you can freshen up after exploring. Head upstairs to rest your head in one of three bedrooms. The double, twin and single are all decorated in neutral tones with splashes of colour to help you relax and drift off in style. Should you fancy a soak, the family bathroom has a bath with shower over the bath and a WC. Shared with the other properties in the barn, there is a room with clothes airer, iron and ironing board. Step out of the French doors and spend time basking in the sun with a drink in hand on your private patio. Beyond this, there is a garden shared with other properties in the barn. The garden boasts fantastic views and is a great place for children to play. There is off-road parking for two cars.

This cottage is comfortable, incredibly clean and in a really beautiful position. The views are incredible and there is easy access to many walks straight from the door.

Stayed recently in 5 bedroomed house in Scotland at about same price range and there were hairdryers in every bedroom together with above items. Also difficult to walk round bed in double room to access toilet on a night without banging legs. Double mattress quite hard compared with others.

Had a lovely week in the Whinlatter cottage. Good cleanliness and all equipment worked. Excellent views from the patio outside seating area; west facing so good sunsets. Couple of miles to nearest pub; Sun inn at Bassenthwaite village. Reserve table to be sure as gets very busy; food and beer very good. Good walks from Mirehouse and cottage; see guRead moreides in communal area where there is a boot room for drying and a shared freezer. We reported a couple of minor issues which were sorted that day. Hide
