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. The property’s two bedrooms are located on the first floor: a twin and a double room which are both comfortably and tastefully decorated. The bathroom is also located on the first floor and shower over the bath and WC.

Outside, the property has beautiful orchard gardens with large lawn areas, which make a lovely place in which to relax and enjoy the tranquillity. A barn is available for bike storage and also houses the washing machine. There is ample off-road parking.

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.

Very quiet and peaceful location with walks from the door. Our dogs loved the orchard which is secure so they could run around to their hearts content. Very friendly and helpful owners lived next door. We thoroughly enjoyed our short break here.

This cottage was exactly as I expected and didn't disappoint me in any way. Very dog friendly, well equipped and a cottage with character. A great large enclosed garden which is opposite the front door and owners who are in the attached cottage and are extremely helpful but not intrusive.

This cottage is rather remote, which we loved. It is an old building with wonky walls and lots of character, but with all mod cons, perfect. Very well equipped with everything you need, and the owners are delightful and just next door if you need anything. The orchard is a fab spot to run around with the dog, and the sitting room is cosy with big lRead moreeather sofas and a wood fire. Beds are comfy, wifi is good. You can walk directly into Grizedale forest, and the nearby Eagle's Head pub is very nice. Hide

A fantastic location to get away from busy city life. It was fantastic to be so up close to nature. The bird watching was great. The orchard was fantastic for sitting out and having meals. Our dog thoroughly enjoyed the orchard too. The cottage was just what we ordered.

We had a lovely stay in this cottage, perfect for this time of year. We had a lovely welcome from the owners who live next door and let us know where to find everything.

Had an excellent week, cool for the Lakes but no fault of the cottage! Did think a wood burner, from my own experience, would be more economical and give off more heat. Good walled orchard for letting dog out.
