Beautiful, lovingly styled cottage, situated in a lovely rural location, and yet just one mile from the popular village of Hawkshead.
This gorgeous cottage is found in the peaceful hamlet of Outgate, just 1 mile from Hawkshead, opposite a pretty green used for grazing sheep. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, it’s the perfect choice for families or couples who are looking to escape the bustle and get back to nature. The local pub is a short stroll away and there are some scenic walks on the doorstep, if you don’t fancy getting in the car.
Carefully blending period features and contemporary touches, this lovingly styled cottage exudes old-world charm. The grand feature fireplace takes centre stage in the welcoming hall, which has additional seating and book-lined shelves. Take several steps into the characterful lounge, where you’ll feel at home as soon as you sink down onto the comfortable sofas, in front of a roaring open fire. The kitchen/diner is a light and airy space, creating a sociable spot to chat while rustling up breakfast or a tasty snack, before enjoying it together at the dining table. Each of the two elegant bedrooms is to be found on the first floor, along with the family bathroom, creating a restful retreat after a busy day of exploring. Doors lead into the garden from both the lounge and the kitchen, where you’ll find an attractive garden and patio area. Fire up the BBQ while the children play, and enjoy a glass of something cold.
Hawkshead has some great shops and pubs, if you’re looking for somewhere to eat and wander. Learn more about Beatrix Potter with a visit to Hill Top (3.5 miles), her former family home.
