Attractive, cosy cottage situated in one of the Lake District’s prettiest villages, with Lake Windermere just a ten-minute drive away.
This cottage is located in the village of Hawkshead, an attractive and well-appointed village with two pubs, shops, and several National Trust properties. Just over two miles to the south of the property is the hamlet of Near Sawrey, where Hill Top, the former home of Beatrix Potter is situated. Continuing along the same road will bring visitors to the banks of Lake Windermere and the ferry terminal, from where cars and foot passengers are taken across the lake to the town of Bowness. There are plenty of scenic walks in the area, particularly around Claife Heights and Wray Castle.
On entering this cottage, guests arrive directly into the warm and welcoming kitchen/diner, with its country-style dining table, co-ordinating units, oven, hob, fridge, freezer, washer/dryer, and dishwasher. Moving through to the property’s lounge, guests will find a cosy gas stove which occupies the place where once the original fire was located. A comfortable sofa and chairs here allow guests to enjoy the TV/DVD, and CD player. Wooden stairs lead to the first floor, where the king-size master bedroom is tastefully finished in pine furniture and warming colours, and benefits from its own TV, and iPod dock. Across the landing, the second bedroom is a tasteful double room, which, like the master bedroom, also has a TV and iPod dock. A shower room with WC is situated conveniently between the two bedrooms. In the eaves of the house, on the second floor, there is a spacious, pretty twin bedroom, with sloping ceilings and a bathroom with bath, handheld shower, and WC.
Outside, the property enjoys a south-facing patio with large table and chairs, which makes a great place to relax, perhaps with a drink or even a meal in the evening. There is parking provided for one car, just next to the cottage.
Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.
