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.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
