Attractive ground-floor apartment, offering accessible accommodation for four in the heart of the village of Hawkshead, a short walk from shops, pubs, and historic buildings.

Hawkshead is one of the region’s most attractive villages, with a choice of welcoming pubs and several interesting National Trust properties. Lake Windermere lies just a three mile drive to the east of the property, along a country road which passes through the hamlet of Near Sawrey, where visitors will find Hill Top, the former home of Beatrix Potter. Less than five miles to the west of the property Coniston Water offers a range of water sports from it boating centre, or perhaps enjoy a Swallows and Amazons boat trip out to Peel Island, said to be the inspiration for Wild Cat Island in Arthur Ransome’s celebrated novel.

The heart of this lovely apartment, accessed via the entrance hall, is an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner and it is here that guests will spend most of their time when they aren’t out exploring the local area. The room has Karndean flooring throughout , a contemporary, wall mounted, coal-effect fire, two comfortable sofas and a TV. The dining area is located behind the lounge seating area, to the left of which is the contemporary kitchen, equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge with ice compartment, and washing machine. The first of two bedrooms, the king-size master bedroom is a lovely light-filled space, thanks to the French windows which give access to the apartment’s enclosed private patio. The neighbouring room has twin beds and looks out onto the patio garden. The sleek shower room is fully tiled with shower and WC. Because of the accessibility and layout of this property it is ideal option for those with limited mobility.

Outside, the property benefits from an enclosed sunny patio, accessed via the master bedroom, which has a table and chairs, ideally for relaxing with a drink at the end of a busy day. There is off-road parking provided for two cars.
