Pretty, traditional cottage enjoying a tranquil countryside location, and yet still within walking distance to pubs and shops in the village of Hawkshead.
Packed with traditional features and old-world charm, this fantastic cottage is situated on a quiet lane on the edge of the village of Hawkshead. Enjoying a peaceful, rural location, it also offers easy access to many scenic walks and trails in the surrounding area. Sleeping up to four people and their two dogs, it’s a memorable retreat for a couple or for a family break.
This pretty property has retained many period features which, combined with sumptuous furnishings, makes for a welcoming home. The cosy lounge is a haven for relaxation, with a warming wood burner and comfortable sofas to curl up on after a busy day of exploring the Lakes. The contemporary kitchen/diner provides a stylish space to put your cooking skills into action, while the wood table is a super spot for everyone to enjoy a meal and discuss the next day’s activities. Enjoy a restful night’s sleep in the two inviting bedrooms, before waking up to those gorgeous views from the window. The property has an unusual woodland garden with slate paths meandering between the trees. Unwind with a glass of wine on the large patio area and take in those views, while the children and dogs play to their hearts’ content.
Shops, pubs and a restaurant are all within walking distance of the property, adding to its convenience. Lake Windermere (5 miles) has something to suit every mood, with some great walks as well as many boat trips which come and go throughout the day. While there, follow the footpath which leads to Claife Heights, a purpose-built vantage point which looks over the lake. For something the whole family will enjoy, Grizedale Forest (3.5 miles) offers woodland walks, sculpture trails and even Segway riding.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
