Attractive barn conversion cottage, contemporarily styled and yet retaining some lovely period features, located on the edge of Hawkshead village.
Exuding character, this charming barn conversion is a great choice for friends or family looking to spend some quality time away together. Located just a short stroll from the popular village of Hawkshead, the three-storey accommodation can sleep up to five guests. With many great walks on the doorstep and Lake Windermere a short drive away, this is a great base from which to explore the area.
With many period features, this attractive home has a contemporary yet traditional feel. To enter, you first cross several steps over a low wall, which acts as a stile, to lead into the courtyard. In the stylish kitchen/diner, which boasts underfloor heating, there’s plenty to keep even the busiest of cooks entertained. Enjoy the results of your efforts at the dining table, before everyone retires to the colourful lounge where the cosy wood burner is certain to be a hit while you all unwind on the comfortable sofas. One of the bedrooms is located on this level: an en-suite and beautifully styled room with a vaulted ceiling and exposed brickwork. On the first floor, you’ll find a cosy single room while cottage-style steps lead to a gorgeous double attic room on the second floor, with sloping ceilings. Step outside and enjoy some al fresco drinks and dining on one of your two patio areas while soaking up the peace and quiet.
Hawkshead is proud of its literary connections and a visit to the Beatrix Potter Gallery is a must for fans of her books. Take in the beauty of Lake Windermere (4.5 miles) on a boat trip, before following the footpath to Claife Heights, a purpose-built viewing platform that looks over the lake. For a family day of adventures, Grizedale Forest (3.5 miles) has woodland walks, sculpture trails and even Segway riding.
