Period property in a rural location 1.5 miles from Hawkshead and Ambleside, with easy access to many stunning walks and climbs.
Enjoying a peaceful, rural location, this charming 17th-century barn conversion is a perfect base for small families or couples looking to explore the Lake District with their two loyal canines. Sleeping four people in two bedrooms, the cottage enjoys some stunning countryside views and is close to a variety of walking routes. A shop, pub and restaurant are all within 1.5 miles, along with the popular village of Hawkshead.
This period property, which is all on one level, occupies half of a converted Lakeland barn and is full of character and traditional touches. The sunny porch is a welcome spot to leave walking boots and wipe muddy paws, while the bright, country-style kitchen, is equipped with all you need to rustle up a tasty snack. The cosy wood burner in the lounge provides some welcome warmth on chillier evenings, as you all settle down to unwind on the comfortable sofas. The two bedrooms are both inviting and homely, providing a relaxing spot for you all to rest your head at the end of the day. French doors lead from the lounge out into the south-facing garden, where you can take in the views across the valley while enjoying a glass of something cold.
The cottage is in a super location for exploring on foot, with a range of gentle strolls to challenging climbs to enjoy. Wander around the pretty streets of Hawkshead (1 mile), where cars are banned, and visit the Beatrix Potter Gallery to learn how this pretty area inspired her famous characters. For those who love the water, Coniston Water (4.5 miles) has a fantastic boating centre with canoes, paddle boards and rowing boats on offer. For something a little more leisurely, take a pleasure cruise on Lake Windermere (6 miles) to really soak up the area’s beauty.
