Escape for a romantic, rural retreat filled with waterside walks and cosy nights in. Your dogs are welcome to adventure by your side and enjoy this fabulous location.

Nestled in the pretty hamlet of Dubwath situated on the edge of Lake Bassenthwaite with so much to explore in the immediate area. Only 200 metres from the sailing club and Bassenthwaite Lake Station where you can enjoy a cream tea on board the Orient Express train or a murder mystery evening! The Lakes Distillery is less than a mile away and offers tours and has a lovely bistro to enjoy a spot of lunch. Walkers and cyclists are spoilt with some brilliant bike tracks in Whinlatter Forest which is 8 miles away and there are some fabulous walks from your door: explore Sale Fell by walking from the cottage, directly in front of the main house or Dubwath Silver Meadows Nature Reserve opposite Bassenthwaite Lake Station.

 Walking through the enclosed garden, you enter the property into the useful hallway with storage for coats and muddy walking boots. You will then find the comfortable bedroom on the ground floor, which is a super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made up as a twin on request). The bedroom offers a peaceful retreat to switch off after a day exploring with pretty views over the garden. There is an en-suite shower room with a shower and WC. Head up the stairs to the first floor to find the bright lounge with a Smart TV, dining area and views over the open fields. It is a great place to sit quietly and watch the local wildlife and birds. The kitchen is off the lounge, compact yet well equipped and has everything you need to prepare a hearty breakfast or romantic evening meal. There is an electric oven and hob, fridge with freezer compartment, slimline dishwasher and microwave.

Venturing outside, there is an enclosed garden with seating offering the perfect area for al fresco dining, or perhaps enjoying a nice glass of wine. You may also get the opportunity to spot regular visitors including squirrels, rabbits and lots of garden birds. There is off-road parking available for one car.

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
