Guests access this property via asset of external steps, which lead to the stable-door opening onto the property’s hallway. Through the hallway, guests will come to the welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with some lovely original features, including the exposed stone wall and fireplace which now occupies the cosy wood burner, sitting on a stone hearth. The room is wonderfully relaxing, with leather sofa, TV, DVD, and window-side dining table for two. The contemporary kitchen area offers everything that guests will need to prepare their favourite meals, including an electric oven, hob, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. A glass-sided staircase leads up to the romantic bedroom, which has the feeling of a high-quality hotel room, only with more privacy. The bed is a kingsize double, but can be made up as two twins on request. Just across from the bedroom, the sleek bathroom offers a shower over the bath and WC. There is underfloor heating throughout the property.

 A parking permit is provided for guests, for use in the village’s main car park for one vehicle.

We had a great time at the Gooseyfoot. Everyone at Hawkshead was very kind, and the walks to coniston and Tarn Hows were extremely enjoyable. We will definitely recommend this cottage to friends visiting the lake district. 10/10

Excellent renovation of this apartment with quality materials. We spent quite a bit of time sitting in the windows watching folk come and go in the square, with coffee in the mornings, tea in the afternoons and a large glass of wine in the evenings! The only quibble we have is, the trips to the loo during the night are quite a challenge, four stepsRead more down and four steps up to the bathroom. Hide
