Located in the peaceful hamlet of Satterthwaite on the edge of the Grizedale Forest, this traditional period cottage is perfectly placed for exploring the Lakes. Sleeping seven people and welcoming three dogs as well, this charming home is perfect for a true family getaway. Within walking distance of the local pub and with some scenic walks and cycling trails on the doorstep, there’s something here for everyone.
With many traditional features, this four-bedroom cottage is homely yet contemporary. At the heart of things is the open-plan lounge/diner which provides a sociable space for everyone to enjoy, with exposed beams and a slate floor. Whether you’re chatting over dinner at the large dining table or snuggling up in front of the wood burner and a great film, this is a relaxing space for all your guests. A separate snug room is also a welcome addition for those who might like some quieter time to themselves. Whip up a tasty breakfast or pack a picnic using everything to hand in the stylish kitchen, which has access to a sunny conservatory and patio doors into the garden. A handy wet room is also to be found on this level. Upstairs, four restful and cosy bedrooms await guests needing to get some sleep. Enjoy some al fresco drinks and dining in the pretty garden, which boasts lovely views of the valley.
For those looking for adventure, Grizedale Forest has a range of walking trails, a sculpture trail and Segways for hire. The cottage is in the middle of Coniston Water (9 miles) and Lake Windermere (8.5 miles) where you can try water sports such as canoeing or paddleboarding, or simply sit back and enjoy a pleasure cruise. Take a wander around Hawkshead (4.5 miles) and visit the popular Beatrix Potter Gallery.
