  • Couple’s retreat, ideal for an escape to the countryside
Property code: LLH19

Stylish barn conversion sleeping two, situated on a quiet lane in the Esthwaite Valley, close to both Lake Windermere and Coniston Water.

This property enjoys a stunning location close to the picturesque Tarn Hows, just one mile from the popular village of Hawkshead, known for its connections to Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth. The larger town of Ambleside is just over four miles away and offers a range of shops, eateries and is the starting point for a number enjoyable pleasure cruises on Lake Windermere, including trips to Bowness. Seven miles from the property is Claife Heights, a purpose-built viewing platform which avoids magnificent views over Lake Windermere.

This property is an elegantly converted barn, sleeping two people. On entering the property, coats and boots can be left in the shared hallway, before going through to the main living space, which is a spacious room with lounge/kitchen/diner. The kitchen area is tastefully styled and well-equipped with an oven, hob, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, and washing machine. The spacious lounge area has a high vaulted ceiling, a wood burner, two comfortable sofas, a TV and DVD player, and is a wonderful place to relax after a busy day of sightseeing or hiking. At each end of the room staircases lead to the galleried areas. The area above the lounge has been made into a wonderfully sunny seating area which looks over the gardens and makes the perfect place to enjoy a drink, be it a glass wine or a morning coffee, there is also a handy desk here, should you need to keep up with work. A separate staircase leads from the main living space to the second gallery, where guests will find the king-size bedroom. The property’s bathroom has a bath, shower, and WC.

Outside, guests have use of the five acres of shared gardens, with seating areas and views over the surrounding the countryside. Off-road parking is provided and there is also secure bike storage available.

It is a lovely cottage and very well equipped. The location is along very narrow lanes so you have to be careful. The villages of Hawkshead and Coniston have a good selection of shops and cafes.

The Weaver's gallery, Near Ambleside. We absolutely loved this cottage, it was perfect for the 2 of us and our Golden retriever. The location was also perfect, situated centrally between the lakes.

loved this place, really cosy for a couple, lovely gardens and a secluded setting. we chose it as we are keen fell walkers and wanted to be away the village for a change, however it is only a 20 minute walk to the village which was fine for us. Great lobby area for wet outdoor gear and muddy boots. would definitely stay again.
