Property code: LCC75

Built some 200 years ago, this charming cottage has been beautifully refurbished to offer home from home accommodation in the heart of the Lake District.

Located by the river Ea and Wheelhouse bridge, this historic property boasts a tranquil setting that feels worlds away from everyday life. Sleeping four across two cosy bedrooms, it’s the perfect spot for a family escape to the picturesque Lake District. Of course, no family is complete without a four-legged friend or two, so bring Fido and Mutley along for the adventure as you spend your days exploring the fells, lakes and woodland walks.

With a traditional meets contemporary country-inspired decor, you’ll feel immediately at home in this refurbished cottage. The open-plan living space is flooded with light, although the log burner turns it into a cosy haven on cold winter nights. Exposed ceiling beams and soft rugs add character and charm, while the airy kitchen has plenty of space to cook up a family feast. Dine beside the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the stream in the conservatory area or in the quaint walled garden, where your canine companions will have a ball playing in the fresh country air. Here you will also find a luxurious hot tub, perfect for soothing those achy muscles after a busy day exploring on foot. There is also a small iron bridge that crosses the river to a private riverside bank--an idyllic spot for a peaceful picnic surrounded by nature.

Don’t forget your walking boots, as the Lake District is famed for its incredible footpaths and bridleways. For the more adventurous, head straight for the mountains, while the local routes which take in Hampsfell (2.5 miles) and Eggerslack Wood (3 miles) offer a more gentle stroll. You can also hop on the dog-friendly Lake Windermere steamer, which winds its way for 10 miles into the central fells - a great way to see the sights of Bowness-on-Windermere, Sawrey and more without the risk of blisters.

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.

Might be worth pointing out that the garden has artificial grass rather then a real lawn.

This cottage is a gem, very thing you need cosy warm just lovely. Hot tub a bonus if you like them. The garden is ideal if you have small dogs which we do, secure and very private.

Beautiful cottage set in a beautiful friendly village. The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable. The village is very dog friendly with great country walks complete with dog friendly pubs.

The cottage is absolutely lovely. It felt like a home away from home, with everything you needed to be comfortable. It was a welcome change from other rental cottages that often feel a bit soulless. The location couldn't be better, a short walk from shops, pubs and restaurants and with beautiful country walks right on your doorstep. Being able to tRead moreake a dog is also an added bonus. We can't wait to go back. Hide
