Attractive, cosy cottage situated in one of the Lake District’s prettiest villages, with Lake Windermere just a ten-minute drive away.
Hidden away in one of Hawkshead’s lovely cobbled yards, this is a real gem of a cottage. Hawkshead is one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District, and this delightful cottage is a perfect base for exploring this stunning area. Ideally situated between Coniston Water and Lake Windermere, Hawkshead is a thriving village, offering a great selection of tea rooms, pubs and gift shops, and is home to the Beatrix Potter Gallery. Close by is the glorious fishing lake Esthwaite Water. Wray Castle, Claife Heights, Coniston, Grizedale Forest, Tarn Hows, Langdale, Grasmere and Ambleside are all within easy reach, and the busy centres of Windermere and Bowness are just a short ferry ride away.
On entering this charming cottage, you will find yourself in the cosy and welcoming lounge, which, with its wood burner effect gas fire in a stone hearth and traditional ceiling beams, is full of old world charm. A perfect room for relaxing in after a day on the fells, it is equipped with a TV, DVD and CD. Crossing the hallway, you will find yourself in the stylish country kitchen with flagged floor and beamed ceiling. Here you will find everything you may need including a halogen hob and electric oven, fridge, freezer, washer/dryer and dishwasher. The dining area is ideally situated, and the traditional feel will help to make every meal special. Wooden stairs lead up to the first floor where you will find the spacious master bedroom with king-size bed, exposed beams, lovely views and TV with integral iPod dock. There is a smaller, pretty double bedroom, also with exposed beams and TV with iPod dock. You will also find a shower room complete with WC. A further flight of wooden stairs leads up to the second floor where children will enjoy the spacious twin bedroom in the eaves and adults will enjoy the lovely view of the hills of Claife. There is a bathroom on this top floor with hand-held shower and WC.
Stepping outside you will find a delightful south-facing enclosed patio area to the front of the cottage with table and chairs provided, where you can relax with a drink at the end of the day. There is parking available for one car adjacent to the cottage.
