The property is accessed by a narrow lane leading to a narrow drive on a blind bend. Large car owners should be aware of this before booking. The property could be stunning but is tired and would be more appropriately rated with 3 not 4 stars.

A nice house with a lovely garden. Great location being very peaceful but just a ten minute walk along country paths to Hawkshead where there are plenty of pubs and a co-op. A great base for exploring the Lake District. The house was comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped if you want to cook. Make sure you bring/buy essentials like loo roll,Read more milk etc as these were not provided. Overall a great stay and looking forward to returning to the Lake District again in future. 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.
