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. For a day of adventures, both Lake Windermere (6 miles) and Coniston Water (5 miles) offer boat trips, water sports, hikes and cycling routes. Don’t miss the chance to explore Wray Castle, 2.5 miles away.

A delightful character cottage with sympathetic modern comforts and a superbly equipped kitchen.

Reviewed by Julie 4th August 2019

The cottage and garden were absolutely beautiful and in lovely surroundings. It had everything we needed, I really can't fault it. It was the nicest cottage we'd ever stayed in. It had all amenities - even Netflix! I would certainly recommend this cottage and a reasonable price too.

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.

Reviewed by Christopher 1st June 2019

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!

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
