Thoughtfully styled property for two in the popular attractive village of Hawkshead, with easy access to Lake Windermere and Grizedale Forest.
Oozing character, this beautifully refurbished cottage cleverly combines traditional features with contemporary touches to create a welcoming couples’ retreat. Overlooking the main square in the bustling village of Hawkshead, it is perfectly placed for adventurers who want to enjoy the great outdoors. Some great pubs, shops and restaurants are all within walking distance, making this a convenient and pleasant getaway.
Accessed via a set of external steps, this welcoming property is both stylish and elegant, with many period features such as exposed stone walls and beams. In the open-plan living space, the lounge area is particularly relaxing, with a leather sofa and wood burner making it a super spot to cuddle up and put your feet up. The smart kitchen offers everything you might need to prepare your favourite meals or snacks, if you don’t fancy eating out. A glass-sided staircase leads up to a romantic bedroom, which has been designed in neutral tones to create a restful atmosphere. Underfloor heating throughout the property adds to its homely and cosy feel.
Step outside your front door to experience the pretty cobbled streets of Hawkshead, with its many great places to eat and independent shops. Don’t miss the chance to visit Lake Windermere (5 miles) where you can explore on foot or on the water, by hopping on one of the pleasure boats that operate there. Soak up some of the history of Wray Castle (3 miles) with its towers and turrets. For a day packed with woodland walks, sculpture trails and even Segway riding, Grizedale Forest (3 miles) is a super choice.
