Attractive countryside retreat just minutes from Lake Windermere and close to the stunning Wray Castle.
Located within walking distance of stunning Lake Windermere, this delightful countryside retreat offers the perfect base for adventurous couples and families. Sleeping five people and up to three dogs, it also features a large enclosed garden with a stream, as well as access to woodlands. With numerous opportunities to explore the lake, and the many pretty towns and villages to visit locally, this is a super rural getaway.
Full of character and many original features, this welcoming home is both cosy and comfortable. An inviting lounge is at its heart, with a warming open fire and snuggly sofas creating a lovely ambience for your guests. The additional snug room with wood burner is a super spot to curl up with a good book. The pretty kitchen is as practical as it is attractive with a working fire, and all you need to whip up a delicious meal which can be enjoyed in the dining room or at the breakfast table. Three characterful bedrooms are to be found upstairs, which allow you to leave your cares behind and have a restful night’s sleep. The single room enjoys lovely views over the garden, there is also a king-size (which can be made up into a twin on request) and a lovely master with it's own en-suite. There is also a large family bathroom with bath and separate shower. The spacious garden with large lawn, stream and small waterfalls will prove a hit with youngsters and hounds, while you relax in the patio area.
Enjoy a cycle ride or walk around the edge of Lake Windermere or take to the water itself and hire boats, windsurfing boards and canoes. Explore Wray Castle (1.5 miles), a Gothic building which sits on the shores of the Lake, with turrets, towers and informal grounds. Head to the pretty village of Hawkshead (2.5 miles) and visit the Beatrix Potter Gallery, along with one of its many tea rooms and cafes. Local shops, pubs and a restaurant are within 3 miles of the cottage.
