Attractive countryside retreat just minutes from Lake Windermere and close to the stunning Wray Castle.
This beautiful cottage is situated on the little lane which leads from the rural village of High Wray down to the spectacular yet serene Lake Windermere. Hawkshead, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District, is just two miles away. A thriving village a couple of miles from Coniston Water, in Hawkshead you can find the Beatrix Potter Gallery as well as tearooms, pubs and gift shops. Esthwaite Water is another pretty lake found nearby which inspired the works of Wordsworth. Towns to visit in the local area include Ambleside, Coniston and Grasmere, as well as Grizedale Forest. Bowness and Windermere can also be reached via a short ferry ride.
On entering this delightful cottage you will find yourself in the cosy and welcoming lounge with its exposed beams, open fireplace and old world charm, where you can relax in front of the open fire or snuggle down and watch the TV or use the DVD or CD. Next to the lounge you will find the elegant and stylish dining room, which is ideal when sitting down to a special meal, with seating for four and a hi-fi. Exploring further, you will find an attractive and airy kitchen/breakfast room. The breakfast area is ideal for snacks, and can be warmed by a traditional wood burner. The kitchen is equipped with everything you may need during your stay including a large range oven with gas hob and electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, and fridge/freezer. French windows lead out from this lovely room onto the sunny patio. Passing back through the lounge, you will find an additional snug with wood burner and a selection of books to enjoy. The washing machine is located in a cupboard off this room. Going upstairs you will find two cosy bedrooms. The attractive double is full of character with exposed beams and slate window sills, while the comfy twin bedroom overlooks the garden. The bathroom has a roll-top bath, large separate shower and WC.
Stepping outside, you will find a large and enclosed south-facing lawn garden which leads up to the woodlands. In a separate area at the rear of the cottage, there is a little stream which cascades over a series of waterfalls where small children and dogs will need supervision. There is off-road parking available for four cars to the rear of the cottage.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
