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. Off-road parking is available for three cars, and bike storage is available in the garage.

The cottage was such good value for money. It was very comfortable, homely and well equipped. From a lovely welcome pack when we arrived to ordnance survey maps and board games, little touches made it a lovely holiday property.
