Lovely cottage located in the Kings Yard area of Hawkshead, with village facilities right on your doorstep and a short drive to Lake Windermere.
This lovely end-terraced cottage, situated in the heart of Hawkshead, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District, is a perfect retreat and an excellent base for exploring this stunning area. Ideally situated between Coniston Water and Lake Windermere, Hawkshead is a thriving village, offering a great selection of tea rooms, pubs and gift shops, and is the home of the Beatrix Potter Gallery. Close by is Esthwaite Water, a fantastic fishing lake which also inspired Wordsworth. Coniston, Grizedale, Langdale, Grasmere and Ambleside are all within easy reach, and the busy centres of Windermere and Bowness are just a short ferry ride away. With breath-taking scenery and activities for the whole family, this idyllic spot guarantees a memorable holiday.
On entering this lovely cottage you will find yourself in the comfortable and welcoming lounge, where you can relax with TV (with BT sport), DVD, CD and iPod dock, and snuggle in front of the charming fireplace with log effect fire. There is also a pay phone for the use of guests. Heading into the stylish, elegant and well-equipped country-style kitchen/diner you will find everything you may need including electric oven and hob, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge/freezer and microwave. The traditional dining area is ideally situated, and is ideal whether you’re grabbing a snack or sitting down to a special meal. Going upstairs, you will find two comfy and attractive bedrooms. There is a lovely, romantic, four-poster double bedroom and a pretty twin bedroom. You will also find a bathroom complete with shower over the bath and WC.
Stepping outside there is a walled patio area to the front of the cottage with table and chairs and to the rear of the cottage, a bench where you can relax at the end the day, or head to one of the village’s popular pubs for a well-earned meal or drink. There is off-road parking available for one car behind the property.
