Property code: LLH13

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, homely and flooded with light. The lounge/diner is a cosy space to relax after a busy day of activities. Take in the gorgeous views from the comfortable recliner 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 cottage style 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 south facing 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. Secure bike storage is available for keen cyclists.

Step out of the front door directly onto the footpath to the National Trust’s Tarn Hows and the popular circular route around the tarn. For those looking for a more challenging walk or climb there are plenty of local opportunities including the many classic walks to be found amongst the high summits of The Coniston Fells rising up behind Coniston village 3 miles away. If water sports are your thing then the Boating Centre (4 miles) at Coniston Water is packed with activities to try including canoeing and paddle boarding. For keen cyclists the entrance to Grizedale Forest at High Cross (0.5 miles) gives access to the many cycling trails through the forest. Great pubs and tea rooms can be found in the pretty village of Hawkshead (1.5 miles) and for that special occasion the renowned Drunken Duck Inn is 1.7 miles away.

The balcony is a wonderful facility for the nice weather to watch wildlife - deer, red squirrel and lots of birds.

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.
