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.

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

Lovely stay, fabulous location. Very dog friendly and surrounded by beautiful countryside and dog walks. Very cosy however we felt the property could have been a little cleaner.

It says 1 parking space but a neighbour uses this and guests at Ash cottage; we did squeeze on the back but it left our car partly in the road all week!

the cottage is sole with parking to the front. If all three cottages are let, there is not sufficient parking for three cars; even if parked considerately. Either parking must be designated for this particular cottage or it must not be sold with adequate parking: even for one car.

A romantic setting, in a gorgeous little village, idyllic views and plenty of walks with the added bonus of a village pub within walking distance.

The property for us was in an ideal position, we loved the walks around there and the local pub just two mins away was excellent good pub food.

the location is great with a friendly pub a few steps away and within easy reach of Windermere, Coniston, and Grange. The buffet at the nearby Lakeside Railway is ideal for breakfast and snacks.

Nice cottage in a lovely location with the pub literally 2 minutes walk away. Parking is not good as locals told us it was public and not dedicated to the cottages. We struggled to park in front of the cottage in January.

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.
