This is a beautiful Lakeland cottage situated in the peaceful hamlet of Outgate, about a mile north of Hawkshead.

Moving into the gorgeous lounge, you will find a welcoming open fire, TV, DVD and CD, a window seat, exposed beams, and ample comfy seating. Moving into the stylish and elegantly designed kitchen/dining room, you will find everything you may need including a range cooker with electric oven and five ring gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, coffee machine and food processor as well as a TV with DVD to entertain you while you cook. The traditional dining area is ideally situated with beautiful viesw of the garden. There is also a ground-floor WC. From the hall, the stone flag stairway takes you to the two bedrooms. The beautiful main double bedroom with king-size bed has oak beams set into the wall and ceiling creating a dramatic effect. The second bedroom is a cosy double with zip-and-link beds which can be separated on request to a twin room. The bathroom is complete with shower over the bath and WC.

Stepping outside, you will find the pretty garden is beautifully laid out with a patio near the kitchen, and a flagstone path leading to a sunny paved area at the centre of the garden, with garden furniture and BBQ, overlooking the meadow behind the cottage. There is off-road parking available for two cars behind the cottage and a garage which offers secure bike storage for guests.

A really delightful cottage with a beautiful garden. Great location for local and wider walking. The Drunken Duck is just a one mile stroll along the quiet back lane which was an unexpected bonus.

Reviewed by Paula 20th July 2019

We spent a very comfortable and relaxing week at Moss Beck, two adults and two children. The cottage is spotless and fully equipped. The beds very comfortable for a good rest after a day cycling the beautiful surroundings.

This is probably the nicest cottage we have ever found, although I would have been a little scared of the uneven stone stairs if I had had small children. The kitchen was easy to use/and sit and dream in as it was spacious and light and airy. The open fire was wonderful for the same purpose!

A very cosy cottage with a home-from-home feel. Very clean and excellently stocked.

We had a wonderful three night stay at Moss Beck Cottage. Its a spacious yet snug cottage, beautifully decorated and thoughtfully equipped. Would definitely recommend.

This is by far one of the best holiday cottages Ive stayed in the Lakes and Ive stayed in a lot. Very clean, well presented, well thought out. It was so cozy in a lovely part of the world, will certainly be coming back again soon!

Reviewed by A Derrick 1st September 2016

We have stayed at Moss Beck twice in the last 2 years and now intend to stay every time we come to the Lakes, which is at least once a year. It is a beautiful cottage, very comfortable and cosy, with everything you could possibly need provided. The standard is very high and the decor is gorgeous. It is also very quiet, despite being a terrace. We nRead moreever heard a thing from either neighbour even though both houses were occupied while we were there. The location is also very convenient, and there are lovely walks from the front door if you don't feel like driving. Can't wait to stay again. Hide

Cannot fault Moss Beck Cottage in any way. The attention to detail for all facilities is outstanding. A pleasure to stay in a place where the owners have gone to so much care to make the stay enjoyable.

Reviewed by D Jobes 1st June 2016

After forty years of self catering holidays Moss Beck cottage must be the best place we have ever stayed in. So well equipped with top quality furnishings and fittings, a real pleasure to return to after a day's walking. We stayed in June and the garden was full of flowers, with plenty of seating areas.

Beautiful well presented cottage with a modern twist ! Only booked the cottage 24 hours before our weeks holiday, and we were not disappointed. Very well presented and immaculate cottage. Very cosy and traditional cottage, but with modern central heating and wonderfully appointed and stocked kitchen. Cannot fault anything about the cottage at allRead more, good off road parking, nice back garden which I am sure we would have used more if we had stayed in the summer. Very comfortable indeed, wish we could have stayed longer. Local farmer even delivered the required amount of butter, milk, bacon and eggs etc as required. Helpful info in the cottage to help those who aren't familiar with the Lakes. Would also highly recommend using Lakeland Hideaways, very helpful and professional. Will certainly use them prior to any other in the future. Hide
