Charming 17th century cottage located in a secluded valley on the edge of Grizedale Forest, surrounded by stunning countryside and scenic walks.
This property enjoys a secluded rural location, in a quiet valley right on the edge of Grizedale Forest. The forest can be accessed directly from the cottage, via a bridleway which leads directly from the front door. The forest has a fantastic visitors’ centre, which offers a range of walking and cycling routes, a sculpture trail, cafe, children’s adventure playground, Segway hire and a Go-Ape adventure centre with high ropes and thrilling zip wire. The village of Satterthwaite and Hawkshead are nearby, and both Coniston Water and Lake Windermere are just a short drive away, offering a range of boat trips and water sports.
This property is a typical 17th century Lakeland farmhouse, which offers accommodation for four people. On entering the property, guests will come to the welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with its cosy open fire, comfy sofas, TV/DVD, and CD, making this a relaxing space to enjoy after a day of sightseeing or hiking. The dining table to one side of the room seats four, whilst the kitchen area, to the rear of the room, is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher.
