Just meters from all kinds of local amenities (including restaurants, a chocolate factory and shops) and with all sorts of activities on offer, you can rest assured your whole party will love a holiday here. Even William Wordsworth lodged just below the cottage!
Take the external stone steps and head into the welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Boasting warm tones, period features, cosy furnishings and handy mod-cons, all generations will quickly settle in and relax. Particularly popular amongst foodies, you will love the well-equipped kitchen area, equipped with all sorts of accoutrements and a stylish AGA.

With so much on offer in the town and within walking distance, you can easily ditch the car and make use of the local attractions. You can even walk the 1 mile to the North Fen National Nature Reserve at the head of the stunning Esthwaite Water. That said, the opportunities are endless, and you can also drive the 4 miles to Coniston with its popular lake and array of shops or the 4 miles to Mitchell Wyke Ferry for a cruise over Windermere. Elsewhere, why not relive childhood tales at the National Trust-run Hill Top, the former home of Beatrix Potter (2.5 miles), or follow the many trails of Grizedale Forest (3 miles)?
