A beautiful 17th century Lakeland farmhouse blending many original features and contemporary style, set in a perfect location for exploring the Lake District.
Perfect for larger groups of friends or family, this beautiful detached 17th-century farmhouse sleeps six guests across three bedrooms. It’s located in the tranquil hamlet of Outgate at the end of a small lane, with some great walks from the doorstep making it great for those who love to explore on foot. The local pub is a short stroll away and Hawkshead, with its many shops and places to eat, is 1 mile away.
Full of character and charm, this impressive home offers contemporary accommodation, blended with original features. The elegant and modern kitchen is well-equipped to keep even the busiest of cooks happy, with the electric stove-effect fire set into the original fireplace adding to the room’s charm. The table is perfect for relaxed breakfasts while the dining area to the rear of the lounge is ideal if you’re sitting down to an evening meal. Exposed beams and a cosy wood burner create a lovely ambience in this room, with comfortable sofas for snuggling up on in front of a film. Upstairs, the inviting bedrooms are both restful and stylish, providing a haven to retreat to at the end of a busy day. Take in the stunning views towards Latterbarrow in your private garden, with a table and chairs which are perfect for a little al fresco dining.
Wander around the shops in popular Hawkshead and stop off at the Beatrix Potter Gallery, which celebrates the author’s work. Explore the interesting Wray Castle, which overlooks Lake Windermere. Take to the late itself on a boat trip and, if you’re feeling brave, get in the water to try out one of the many water sports on offer. There are plenty of hiking routes locally, but for hardier fell walkers, the majestic Langdales (7 miles) are the place to be.
