  • Former forestry workers’ cottage found at the edge of Grizedale Forest
  • Delightful semi-detached property in lovely rural setting with a large garden
  • Walking distance to forest visitor centre for local information and 3 miles from the village of Hawkshead
Property code: LLH06

Attractive semi-detached cottage with expansive gardens, on the edge of the stunning Grizedale forest, just a short drive from both Coniston Water and Lake Windermere.

With forest walks and cycle trails from the door, this welcoming home in the heart of Grizedale Forest is a top choice for your outdoorsy holiday in the beautiful Lake District. Once a forestry worker’s cottage, the house is set up perfectly so you and your family, friends and canine companions can fully enjoy the spectacular countryside all around.

A useful entrance porch is ideal for shedding muddy boots and coats, and drying off soggy dogs too, before heading into the cosy lounge/diner to warm up in front of the electric fire. Anyone very cold or wet can hop straight in the downstairs shower, while the wetgear can go in the washing machine in the utility room next door. Enjoy a well-earned meal at the table, prepared in the compact but well-equipped adjacent kitchen, and linger over coffee while the children and dogs curl up in front of a film. On summer evenings, they’ll want to go outside and explore the large garden, which has plenty of space for a spontaneous football or cricket tournament as well as seating for those who prefer to spectate over a glass of wine.

The house is half a mile from the Grizedale Visitor Centre where you can pick up trail maps, information on the forest, and enjoy a tasty treat in the cafe. You can also hire mountain bikes, including kids bikes and trailers, or swing through the treetops on the GoApe high wire course. It’s 3 miles from the house to the charming Tudor village of Hawkshead, home to the Beatrix Potter museum, and about the same distance to Esthwaite Water for fishing. Lake Windermere is 6 miles away, with a ferry to take you across to the pretty village of the same name.

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

Lovely location, Cottage needs a bit of TLC , particularly the bathroom floor that obviously has had water damage at some point as the floor is rotten. Sleeps 5 but the sitting in lounge would struggle to sit 5 comfortably . Directions on how to find from the south need revising!

Location is great and very peaceful, some niggle with property , and the fence surrounding not as secure as it could be and the stile to the woods non existent. apart from that the, house was very clean and adequate , I would recommend especially for dog owners has some lovely walks very close by in the woods, just take note re the fence, as sheep Read moreoften in the adjoining field. Towels provided , but I would recommend take extra, especially kitchen towels Hide

We visited for New Year and thought this a lovely cottage, warm and practical with places for wet clothes and boots, parking for 3 good size cars if you're canny, 2 good showers, and a place to store a few bikes. Lovely walking up Wetherlam and Coniston as the closest larger hills, and biking from the door in the forest or to Claife Heights and WraRead morey Castle. The Holiday Cottages agent in Hawkshead was most helpful. Hide
