Attractive semi-detached cottage with expansive gardens, on the edge of the stunning Grizedale forest, just a short drive from both Coniston Water and Lake Windermere.

If you are looking for somewhere to enjoy an active family break, then look no further, this cottage is in the perfect location to try out many of the activities that the Lakeland region has to offer. A short woodland stroll from the property brings guests to the Grizedale Forest visitor centre, where they will find a playground, café, cycling routes, a Go-Ape high ropes centre and info on the forest. Both Lake Windermere and Coniston water, two of the region’s best known lakes, are less than eight miles away and give the visitors chance to try their hand at various water sports, or perhaps take a pleasure cruise if they are looking for a more restful experience.

Entering the cottage, guests will be able to leave their boots on the porch before entering the spacious hallway, close by is the lounge/diner, with its comfortable seating, dining table, wood burner-effect electric fire, TV, DVD, and hi-fi. The kitchen is situated to the rear of the property and is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, and fridge, whilst the washing machine and freezer can be found in a separate utility room, next to which is a convenient ground-floor shower room with WC. To the first floor, there are three tastefully decorated bedrooms: a double, a twin and a single. The main bathroom is also on the first floor and has a shower over the bath and WC.

Outside, the property has wonderfully spacious gardens, mainly set to lawn, with a small patio area, ideal for sitting back with a drink and watching the children play. The garden is fully enclosed, but there is a stile on one edge, which allows guests to access the woodland which lies beyond the grounds. There is ample parking available for three cars adjacent to cottage.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Overall the cottage is in a excellent location, very close to Grizedale Forest centre with it's extensive bike and walking trails. The cottage is cosy and warm and very well equipped.

Reviewed by Rich 16th February 2019

The cottage is warm, cosy and spacious. It is ideally situated if you wish to explore Grizedale Forest on foot or bicycle, with a good MTB single-track trail, which can be accessed almost directly from the cottage. There is a secure outhouse, in which we were able to store 3 adult and 1 child bikes. Ample parking for 2 'family' sized cars.

Lovely cottage that actually is larger than pictures show. Great location for mountain biking, Go Ape in the forest all on the doorstep. Cottage is on a private road so extremely quiet. Nearby Hawkshead has all the amenities needed.

Great house with lots of space and confidently located near the mountain bike and walking trails of Grizedale. Ambleside, Hawkshead all close by by car.

Reviewed by S Hicks 1st September 2016

The Kennels is a lovely welcoming, cosy cottage a stones throw away from the Grizedale Forest visitors centre. We made use of the easy access to all the forest trails. The cottage does allow dogs however the spacious garden is not petproof. Our Westie is an 'escaper' so had to be kept on a lead in the garden as he could have gotten out through holeRead mores in the fence and a large gap beneath the front gate. The cottage is along a private lane so is very quiet. Hawkshead is the closest village so the milkman service (Saturday, Tuesday, Thursday) was a wonderful bonus. Hide

Reviewed by C Baines 1st August 2016

This was our second visit to this lovely, spacious, homely cottage in a beautiful location, had another lovely holiday with excellent weather, particularly enjoyed breakfast in the sunny garden each morning, would definitely recommend.
