Cosy, quaint and homely, this charming one-bedroom cottage is everything a romantic retreat should be.

With a pub, shop and restaurant within walking distance, and the banks of Lake Windermere 5 miles away, it is the perfect place for exploring the delights of the Lake District.
Full of character and traditional touches, this inviting home will ensure you have a comfortable break.

The open fire in the pretty lounge creates a warming focal point for relaxing evenings with a glass of wine and a good film or board game. The bedroom is both welcoming and restful, providing a comfortable place to relax after a busy day. Outside you’ll discover a shared garden with lawn and patio for the dog to explore, while you sit back with a glass of something cool.
You won’t have to stray far from the cottage to enjoy some of the scenic walks and cycle trails to be found in this area. Meander around the cobbled streets of Hawkshead and view some of Beatrix Potter’s original illustrations in the dedicated museum there. Follow the footpath to Claife Heights (5 miles), a stunning vantage point above Lake Windermere, or explore the lake itself by hopping on one of the pleasure boats that run there. Hire a boat or try out one of the water sports on offer at Coniston Water’s boating centre, 4.5 miles away.
