Charming eco-friendly cottage enjoying a tranquil location with stunning countryside views, located close to the village of Hawkshead.
Oozing with cottage charm, in the heart of the scenic Lake District, this holiday home is a real beauty. Whether it’s a family break or a get-together with friends, this little spot provides the perfect setting.
The stone-built cottage has been renovated to a high quality by local craftsmen, and there are endless thoughtful touches throughout, from the outdoor drying room for wet gear, to the luxurious reclining leather armchairs in the cosy living room. The perfectly manicured garden have a decent-sized lawn for children and dogs to stretch their legs and a patio for al fresco dining, all with stunning countryside views across the Esthwaite Valley. Get everyone involved at the kitchen island preparing dinner, and then sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labour at the table in the sunny dining area. Contentedly full, retire to the lounge with a glass of wine and light the wood burner, before settling into the leather sofas for a movie, a game of cards, or a catch-up chat that stretches into the early hours of the morning.
It’s a 1.5-mile stroll to Hawkshead village for brunch or a mouthwatering afternoon tea in one of the cafes. Visit the Beatrix Potter gallery, browse the shops and don’t miss taking the kids to decorate their own chocolate bars in the Chocolate Factory. Dogs will love a romp around Tarn Hows, around 2 miles from the house, and there are plenty of walks from the door too. Head to Coniston Water, 3 miles away, for fun on the lake with all kinds of water sports or enjoy a more leisurely boat ride on Windermere from Ambleside, 4 miles from the house.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
