Detached cottage on a quiet country lane, just a few miles from the water’s edge at Lake Windermere and with easy access to country walks and hikes.
This beautiful detached Lakeland cottage is situated in the delightful hamlet of Near Sawrey, close to where Beatrix Potter wrote many of her famous stories. Two miles away is Hawkshead, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District; a thriving area 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.
From the porch, you step through a small entrance hall and into a charming furnished reception room. From here a doorway leads into the traditional dining room, and then you can pass into the bespoke kitchen which is equipped with electric oven, double hob, dishwasher, microwave and fridge. The kitchen also benefits from French doors which lead out onto a furnished private patio at the rear of the cottage. Exploring further, you will find the inviting and cosy living room, with exposed beams, an open fire in a stone hearth, TV and DVD. You will find a comfy double bedroom and a shower room complete with WC. There is also a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer. Heading upstairs you will find the second lounge, also with TV. This spacious room has high ceilings and French doors which lead out onto a second patio area which offers glimpses of the rolling hills towards Grizedale. There is also a large master bedroom with four-poster bed and TV. You will also find a second smaller double bedroom (with an electric wall mounted heater). There are two bathrooms on this floor: the traditional family bathroom offers a bath with hand-held shower and WC, and there is also a smaller shower room with basin and WC.
Stepping outside you will find two stone-flagged patio areas at different levels, linked by a flight of stone steps (small children will require supervision). These are charming spots for relaxing at the end of a fantastic day. Off-road parking is available for two cars opposite the property.
