Cosy rural cottage for two, in a tranquil location with easy access to Hawkshead and Ambleside.
This charming cottage is one of two properties converted from a fine 17th century Lakeland barn. Tucked into the hillside and surrounded by beautiful countryside, it is close to the beauty spot of Tarn Hows, and under two miles from Hawkshead, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District. Home to the Beatrix Potter Gallery, you will also find tearooms, pubs and gift shops in Hawkshead. Close by are the lakes of Esthwaite Water, Coniston Water and Lake Windermere, with places such as Ambleside, Coniston, Grizedale and Grasmere all within easy reach.
On entering this traditional cottage, you will find yourself in the cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, with its exposed beams, slate flagged floor and wood burner. You can unwind in the lounge with the TV, DVD and radio. Moving over to the attractively designed and well-equipped kitchen you will find everything you may need during your stay including an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave and fridge. There is also an ideally situated breakfast bar. Heading upstairs via the steep, narrow staircase, you will find a comfy king-size bedroom complete with window seat, overlooking the garden and with gorgeous views of the rolling countryside. The unusual Chinese screen wall separates the bedroom from the good sized bathroom. The bathroom, offers a shower over bath, basin and WC.
Stepping outside you will find a utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer, as well as plenty of room for keeping walking gear or bikes. You will also find a small but charming enclosed garden with table and chairs, where you can relax at the end of the day. Off-road parking is available adjacent to the property.
