Charming 17th century cottage located in a secluded valley on the edge of Grizedale Forest, surrounded by stunning countryside and scenic walks.

Tucked away in a secluded valley on the edge of the Grizedale Forest, this 17th-century semi-detached cottage is an idyllic rural retreat. Surrounded by stunning countryside and some lovely scenic walks, it will particularly suit couples and families of up to four people, who are holidaying with three canine companions. A bridleway leads directly to the forest from the property, making this a super choice for those looking to enjoy the great outdoors.

Oozing character and many traditional touches, this gorgeous home is both warm and welcoming. What better way to relax after a busy day of exploring than by curling up on the comfortable sofas in the open-plan living space, in front of the open fire. Gather your guests around the dining table to enjoy a home-cooked meal together, which you’ve rustled up in the bright, shaker-style kitchen. When it’s time to retire for the night, head upstairs where you’ll find two restful bedrooms which provide a snuggly spot to drift off into a peaceful sleep. Stepping outside, children and pets will love exploring the large orchard gardens which make a lovely place for you all to relax and enjoy a drink or some al fresco dining. A barn is also available for storing bikes.

The local pub and village shop are 2 miles from the cottage. Have a go at Segway riding or pick a walking or cycling route to follow at Grizedale Forest, which is within strolling distance. You’ll find some friendly cafes and pubs to visit in Hawkshead (4.5 miles) as well as the popular Beatrix Potter Gallery which features some of her early illustrations. Take a boat trip at Lake Windermere (6.5 miles) or Coniston Water (9 miles) which also offer a range of water sports to try.

The cottage is in a beautiful, peaceful location. The hosts are extremely welcoming and friendly. The cottage is cosy and comfortable, fully equipped and has endless supply of logs for the fire. Its amazing to be able to walk into Grizedale Forest right from the door. The orchard is a perfect safe place for the dog.

Lovely, well stocked, comfortable cottage. Husband especially liked the open fire! Wi-fi could sometimes be a little bit spotty, and as we had some bad weather (biblical rain!) we spent a lot of time in the cottage. Very rural! So no phone signal. Also takes about 15 mins to drive to the nearest village for the local shop. Dog enjoyed the enclosed Read moregarden and local walks. Colin and Anne were very friendly and helpful. Hide

Very quiet and beautiful cottage and location. Perfect to get away from reality for a while. Short but hilly walk to the nearest pub. We as family of two young children thought it was an ideal place for them to play. They spent alot of time by the shallow brook. Making the most of the fresh air! We would definatly go back.

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.
