Charming cottage located on the edge of Grizedale forest, with easy access to both Lake Windermere and Coniston Water.

This cottage enjoys a quiet location in the small village of Satterthwaite, within walking distance of the local pub, The Eagles Head, perfect for a long lunch, or a few drinks in the evening. Two miles from the property is the Grizedale Forest visitor centre which has a range of walking and cycle routes, Segways for hire, a sculpture trail, and a Go-Ape high ropes adventure. Of course, visitors will want to visit the lakes and the property is situated right in the middle of two of the region’s finest: Coniston Water and Lake Windermere, which are both around six miles away.

This pretty cottage is an ideal base from which to explore the Lake District and offers accommodation sleeping seven. The heart of the house is the open-plan lounge/diner, with its beamed ceiling, slate floor, and stone fireplace which now houses the wood burner. The two comfortable sofas allow guests to relax whilst watching the TV and DVD, or perhaps enjoying one of the selection of provided books or board games. The dining area of this room has a large table seating eight. A snug room, also located on the ground floor, takes on the role of a second lounge area with a second TV. The kitchen is well-equipped with an oven, hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, and access through to the sunny conservatory with its wicker chairs and patio windows leading out to the garden. There is also a handy wet room with walk-in shower and WC on the ground floor. Taking the stairs to the first floor, guests will find the master bedroom with its king-size bed, as well as a double room, a twin room and, finally, a bunk-bedroom. The main bathroom is also located upstairs and has a shower over the bath and WC.

Outside, the property benefits from an attractive rear garden with table and chairs, from which guests may like to enjoy alfresco meals or simply admire the view of the valley. There is off-road parking for two cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The cottage is in a small village with only a village pub. There is a small playground for children and many footpaths into Grizedale Forest. We were a party of 5 adults, two 8 year olds and two 2 year olds and cottage was big enough for us all. The local office staff were very helpful with any problems we had.

Although the cottage is out of the way it was easy to find. On our arrival there were floods so we had an hour diversion. Other than that it ways a lovely cottage the owner had thought of everything,a very quiet village and welcoming pub landlord.
