Self-contained apartment hidden away on a private lane in rolling countryside, between the villages of Hawkshead and Coniston.

Enjoying a secluded and tranquil rural location, this couples’ retreat is the perfect getaway for a romantic break. Close to the village of Hawkshead, as well as many scenic lake and fell walks, it’s a super base from which to explore the Lake District. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and enjoying stunning views from its private balcony, this is the perfect place to unwind and reconnect.

Located on a private lane, this first-floor cottage is welcoming and homely. The lounge/diner is a cosy space to relax after a busy day of activities. Take in the gorgeous views from the comfortable chairs, before putting on a film and pouring a glass of wine. An electric fire helps to keep the room extra toasty on chillier evenings, while the compact kitchen is equipped with all you might need to prepare a hearty breakfast, or evening meal if you fancy dining in. Wake up to that beautiful scenery in the bedroom, which is both restful and inviting. Glass doors lead from the lounge area onto your private balcony, where you can take a seat and really absorb the peaceful atmosphere. There is also a pretty garden area, which is perfect for a picnic or drink at sunset. Handy bike storage is available for keen cyclists.

Walk the popular circular route at the National Trust’s Tarn Hows, less than a mile away. For those looking for a more challenging hike or climb there are plenty of local opportunities including climbs at Dow Crag (19 miles) and Hodge Close Quarry (6 miles). If water sports are your thing then Coniston Water (4 miles) is packed with activities to try including canoeing and paddle boarding. Let someone else do the cooking and enjoy a meal at one of the local pubs in Hawkshead (1.5 miles).

A perfect location for an 'away from it all' holiday, the apartment was warm and comfortable with everything we needed. There are some beautiful walks starting from the property and we were lucky with the October weather and were able to enjoy sitting on the balcony enjoying the beautiful views. We would love to return.

We've just got back from a weeks holiday. The property is ideal for couples. It is very cosy, and comfortable, and has everything you need, including a hairdryer, television, dvd and dab radio. The views are stunning, from the balcony. The property is very close, to the walk to Tarn Hows, which is definitely recommended. We even went on a socially Read moredistanced walk, with the owner to Black Crag. The property is in a quiet location, but ideally based for all the local places of interest. Hide

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
