  • Abundance of walks and cycling from the doorstep
Property code: LCC78

Just a stone’s throw from the local pub, this cosy cottage makes a charming bolthole for a romantic break in the Lakes.

This charming romantic retreat enjoys a peaceful location in the pretty village of Bouth. Just a stone’s throw from the local pub, it’s surrounded by beautiful countryside and within easy reach of the southern lakes and fells. One canine is welcome to join you at this pretty cottage too, making it a rural escape for you all.

Tasteful decor and comfortable furnishings throughout, make this home a lovely bolthole for your holiday. The open-plan living space on the ground floor is contemporary in style, with the odd original feature too. The modern kitchen is perfect for preparing snacks or a candlelit meal, which can be enjoyed at the dining table. At the end of a long day of walking, let the dog stretch out on the rug as you both settle down in the lounge area in front of a film, for a cosy night in. Heading upstairs, sink down under the covers and drift off into a deep sleep in the restful bedroom, which is light and calming. Wake up to those pretty views across the fields, before freshening up in the stylish bathroom. Enjoy some al fresco dining in the sunny patio garden, which also has a delightful summer house which is lovely come rain or shine. A section of the garden is enclosed with a barrier, which can be removed if necessary.

Both Lake Windermere (5 miles) and Coniston Water (6 miles) offer a range of water sports as well as pleasure cruises to different locations. Wander around the cobbled streets of Hawkshead (9 miles) before stopping off to eat at one of its many pubs. Follow one of the walking trails that pass your front door, or for a more challenging day, climb to the summit of the Old Man of Coniston, 12 miles away.

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

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Some things are ok but there are 4 negative points to consider:: 1. Hazard of sloping ceiling in bathroom (need to be careful when in there) 2. Parking is not reserved outside property and you may have to park 100 meters or so away for a day or two in a week 3. No manual for the microwave which we couldn't work and believe is broken 4. Nice garden Read morefurniture shown on website is not on site at the property rather some much inferior metal table and chairs Hide

A lovely cottage with a quiet garden area- which unfortunately due to the weather we weren't able to make use of. However the dog enjoy numerous wander rounds thanks to the fully enclosed fencing. Location wise it was a quiet village but only 5 minutes from the main road to Windermere and coniston lakes.

We enjoyed staying at the cottage as it was a good base with which to visit the popular parts of the Lake District including Windermere, Coniston and Ambleside. You felt away from the busy areas and so it was nice to come back to at the end of a day out.

We thought the cottage was true to the pictures but unfortunately really underwhelming for our stay. For 425 for 2 nights with one dog, we expected some personal touches but there were none. One half used toilet roll, no coffee/tea, handwash in kitchen or bathroom, no functioning wifi/tv/phone service or any personal touches whatsoever

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
