Detached cottage on a quiet country lane, just a few miles from the water’s edge at Lake Windermere and with easy access to country walks and hikes.
Visitors should be sure to take one of the numerous pleasure cruises around the lake, to enjoy the scenery and to visit some of the interesting lakeside towns and attractions, including Wray Castle, Ambleside, and Bowness. The village of Hawkshead is just over two miles from the cottage and offers a range of village amenities, including pubs, shops, and several National Trust property’s, including the Beatrix Potter Gallery. The village pub is only a short stroll away.
The front door of this property opens onto the entrance hall, which is a handy place to leave boots and coats. Moving through to the main house, there is a reception room with a bench seat and table which leads on to the country style kitchen/diner, with its attractive Welsh dresser and table next to the patio doors which open on to one of the property’s patios. The kitchen is well-equipped with oven, hob, microwave, Belfast sink, fridge, dishwasher and an under the counter freezer with three drawers. The washing machine and tumble dryer can be found in a separate utility room. The cosy ground-floor lounge has an open fire, comfortable chairs, TV, and DVD. One of the bedrooms is also on the ground floor, a double room, which is found just beyond the lounge. There is also a ground floor shower with WC. Upstairs, guests will find two more bedrooms: the master bedroom has a four-poster double bed and its own TV, whilst the other is also a double. There are two bathrooms on this floor: The main bathroom which has a bath with handheld shower and WC, and a shower room with WC. The first-floor is also where guests will find the second lounge, a spacious room with a sofa and TV. It is from here that the second patio is accessed, via a set of French windows.
Outside, the property has two pretty flag-stoned patio areas, one on the ground floor and the other on the first floor, which are linked by stone steps (please take care to supervise children on the steps). Opposite the cottage, there are two off-road parking spaces.
Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.
