A real rural fairytale cottage set in an idyllic 3 acres of landscaped gardens. Tastefully designed with just two in mind, it is ideal for a peaceful and romantic getaway in the raw beauty of Cumbria with a few indulgent touches to make your stay extra special.
Nestled in a secluded location, this romantic retreat will suit couples and their canine companions seeking a luxurious holiday hideaway from which to explore the stunning Lake District landscape. Charter a boat to sniff out a picturesque picnic spot along the banks of Lake Windermere (5 miles) where dogs get their very own ticket, or head to vibrant Ambleside (11.5 miles) for a walk through Skelghyll Woods in search of Cumbria’s tallest tree and a drink in one of the town’s dog-friendly pubs.
Your light and airy single-storey accommodation boasts a wonderful open-plan living space with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and large windows overlooking the gardens. Snuggle up on the plush sofa while your dog snoozes in front of the gentle warmth of the wood burner. Plan your day’s activities over a coffee sat at the breakfast bar or enjoy a cosy supper at the table for two. At bedtime head through to the sumptuous double bedroom with free-standing bath and en-suite shower room. Remember to bring your pup’s favourite bedding so they can rest their paws in comfort too. Your private patio is the perfect spot for an al fresco drink in the evening or take your hound for a pre-supper stroll around the 3 acres of shared garden. Practise your dog paddle in the shared indoor swimming pool.
Perfectly positioned to explore the Lakeland towns, your couples’ cottage is the ideal base for day trips in the area. Visit Brockhole (9 miles), where you can stroll around the substantial gardens and grounds and picnic on the lakeside.
