On entering this charming apartment, which occupies the ground floor of the owner’s home, you will find yourself in the welcoming and bright open-plan lounge/kitchen. This lovely and light room is dominated by two windows offering stunning views out across the valley. The inviting and cosy lounge, with TV and a coal effect electric fire, is a great place to relax at the end of a fantastic day. The attractive and elegantly designed kitchen is equipped with everything you might need including an electric oven, hob, fridge and microwave. You will also find an ideally situated dining area.

Hillside is a cosy property, well maintained, a bit old fashioned in many ways but well equipped. Hillside is not very spacious but is large enough for a party of 2. Beds are comfy, there is a storage and the bathroom is very clean. The road to get to the property offers very limited visibility so just drive slowly. Hawkshead is a good spot to explRead moreore the rest of Lakeland. The village is very quirky and pleasant. Hide

Wonderful spot with Mr. McGregor's garden at the front. Charming owner, glorious walks and views. To have sheep looking in through the window and uninterrupted views of hill and dale, there can be nothing more delightful.

The views from this apartment are fabulous and it is in a lovely location. The apartment is small but enough for 2 people. It was clean and pleasantly furnished.

Fantastic views Basic living space but everthing you need. Wonderful garden which is well maintained. Excellent for local walks and only 20 mins walk to Hawkshead. All pubs in Hawkshead are dog friendly and are reasonably priced with good quality food.
