This quaint and cosy cottage is a romantic bolthole for couples in search of a relaxing break in the Lakes.
Located in the grounds of Crosthwaite House, this quaint and cosy cottage is a romantic bolthole for couples in search of a relaxing break. It enjoys a peaceful location and spectacular views with many walks on the doorstep, perfect for those who are bringing their two dogs along as well. The local pub is less than half a mile away too, meaning you can do as much or as little as you like.
This pretty home has many traditional features which add to its charm, to create a relaxing base for your holiday. On the ground floor, the living accommodation is open-plan and has a warm and inviting feel. Prepare a tasty meal for two in the compact, yet well-equipped kitchen, before sitting down to enjoy it beside the wood burner, which is in a fine stone fireplace. Snuggle up on the sofa and enjoy a relaxing night in with a film, while the dogs snooze at your feet. A staircase leads up to the double bedroom, a tastefully decorated space where you’ll be sinking under the covers and drifting off to sleep in no time. The bathroom can be found on this level, as well. Soak up your tranquil surroundings with a drink in the pretty shared terrace garden and take in the views across to the church and distant fells of Whitbarrow Scar and Cartmel Fell.
The area is packed with narrow winding lanes that pass farmland, woodland and rivers, making it perfect for keen walkers and cyclists. Take to the water on Lake Windermere (6 miles) with a pleasure cruise, before stopping off at Bowness, which boasts an array of shops. Explore the medieval house and gardens of Sizergh Castle, which is 7.5 miles away.
