Period property in a rural location 1.5 miles from Hawkshead and Ambleside, with easy access to many stunning walks and climbs.
This charming Lakeland barn has been converted into two delightful homes which enjoy an elevated position close to Tarn Hows and overlooking the Esthwaite Valley. Hawkshead, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District, is under two miles away. A thriving village ideally situated between Coniston Water and Lake Windermere, Hawkshead offers a great selection of tea rooms, pubs and gift shops, and is home to the Beatrix Potter Gallery. Close by is Esthwaite Water, a fantastic fishing lake which also inspired Wordsworth. Ambleside, Coniston, Grizedale and Grasmere are within easy reach, and 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.
Situated down a quiet country lane, this is the ideal cosy hideaway. You enter this single-level barn conversion via a sunny entrance porch with its Lakeland slated floor and window seat, ideal for storing muddy boots. This leads into the charming dining room, and then into the comfy and welcoming lounge, which is comfortably furnished, with TV, DVD, CD, telephone and wood burner. The spacious and elegant kitchen is equipped with everything you may need during your stay including fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, double oven and separate electric hob and microwave. Exploring this delightful cottage further, you will find a comfortable kingsize double bedroom with en-suite shower room complete with WC. There is also a pretty twin bedroom, and across the corridor is a family bathroom, complete with shower over the bath and WC.
Leaving the lounge via the French doors, you will find yourself in the pretty south-facing garden with seating, where you can sit back and relax and spend an idyllic sunny evening admiring the beautiful views across the valley. Secure storage for bicycles is available, as is off-road parking.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
