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.

Absolutely perfect location for some great walks and local pubs and cafe for dinning out. Great shopping too. Lovely getting a bottle of milk delivered to the door each day, others items available too. And able to buy fresh eggs from the local farm just yards away.

Once again we loved our rural stay at Black Fell cottage. It's perfect for walking the hills and lake sides in the local area. It's comfortable and practical - self catering, hot water and log fires provide the perfect base we need. We'll be staying there again for sure.

The house although a little outdated is a very comfortable place to stay. It is set in a beautiful peaceful area that is great for mountain biking, cycling and walking.

The cottage is very nice. Plenty of room. We were 4 but plenty of room for 8 people except for only 1 bathroom and a 2nd WC which for 8 people would be tricky. They missed a trick, it would be fairly east to give the upstairs double an ensuite. The utility is great for washing and boots. Nice big kitchen. For some it may feel a bit dated but I likeRead mored the retro feel to it with floral curtains and dark furniture. WiFi works well too! Hide

We decided on a last minute short break with Lakeland Hideaways and chose Black Fell Cottage.

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
