Authentic country cottage, offering the perfect location for enjoying a relaxing couple’s retreat, located in the Lake District countryside, just nine miles from the eastern shore of Lake Windermere.
Enjoying a peaceful location in the Lake District’s Kentmere Valley, this charming one-bedroom cottage is an idyllic romantic retreat. Surrounded by stunning countryside, it’s a great base from which to explore the lakes and fells which make this area so popular. There are endless trails to be found on the doorstep and one canine companion is welcome too, so your walking boots will be getting plenty of use.
This semi-detached property is packed with traditional features which give it a homely and characterful feel, perfect for those wanting to step back from busy daily life. The pretty kitchen is equipped with everything you’ll need to make yourselves at home, along with a traditional AGA which takes pride of place in the living room. Enjoy a candle-lit dinner together at the small dining table, before snuggling up on the sofa to enjoy a film, while the dog snoozes at your feet. Stairs lead up from here to the shower room and a beautifully finished king-size bedroom, with shabby-chic furniture and calming decor, which provide a sanctuary for rest. Wake up to those wonderful countryside views from here, before stepping out into the cottage garden where the dog can roam happily while you enjoy your morning cuppa.
The nearest pub is 4.5 miles away, while the historic market town of Kendal (10 miles), home to the famous mint cake, is worth a visit for a day of shopping, with museums and two castles to explore. The eastern shore of Lake Windermere is 9 miles from the cottage, where you can take a boat trip or follow one of the picturesque walking routes around it. If you’re looking for a bit of adventure, try canoeing or paddleboarding, with equipment for hire locally.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
