Semi-detached cottage situated on a millpond in a quiet location within walking distance of the village of Hawkshead.
You’ll find this beautiful cottage situated alongside a millpond, in a peaceful location on the outskirts of the village of Hawkshead. The semi-detached property can sleep up to five people, making it a perfect rural retreat for families or groups of friends. It boasts spectacular views across the Vale of Esthwaite and has some superb scenic strolls on the doorstep, while local shops, pubs and a restaurant are all within walking distance.
With many traditional features and exposed beams throughout the ground floor, this delightful cottage offers both character and comfort. The welcoming kitchen/diner has a real country feel and is equipped with everything you’ll need to cook up a delicious meal. Enjoy a sociable dinner together before retiring to the lounge, where you can put your feet up and unwind on the sumptuous sofas while the wood burner-effect electric fire adds a bit of cosiness. On the first floor, you’ll discover three pretty bedrooms, which provide a snuggly spot to rest your head at the end of a busy day. Relax in the pretty garden and patio area, which is a great space to enjoy a little al fresco dining, while the millpond and stream is a lovely addition, though children will need to be supervised around them.
Wander into Hawkshead and enjoy a bite to eat in one of its many pubs, before stopping off to view some of Beatrix Potter’s early illustrations in the gallery dedicated to her work. Water sports fans will love trying out some of the activities on offer at Lake Windermere (5.5 miles), while those preferring a slower pace can enjoy one of the many boat rides which operate. Woodland walks and sculpture trails make Grizedale Forest (3.5 miles) a great day out for all the family.
