Entering this cottage through the porch, guests will come to the welcoming and homely lounge/diner, with its beamed ceiling, fireplace with wood burner, comfortable seating, and TV/DVD. To one end of this room, there is a dining table and chairs and a door which leads out onto the property’s rear garden. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine, as well as an extra dining table, which makes a great place for breakfast. To the first floor of the property, there are three bedrooms, all with sloping ceilings and dormer windows. The first of these is a lovely light and airy twin room, which can be made up as a king-size on request. The second room is a double, whilst the third is a cosy single room.

Outside, the property enjoys a large enclosed garden which is mainly set to lawn and offers plenty of quiet space for guests to relax in, and for children to play games.

Great location if you want peace and quiet. Lots of lovely walks from door step. Garden is beautiful and safe for our large dog to run around. Cottage its self is cozy and warm with the log burner going. The birds on the feeders are a delight. Good parking space for two large cars. A proper country cottage in the lakes, perfect.

Set in a beautiful rural location this cottage is the perfect get away from the hustle and bustle! Although it is still close enough to walk into the local village of hawkshead or a short drive into Ambleside which have a good range of shops and amenities.

A welcoming character cottage in a tranquil location. The cottage is clean, very well equipped and spacious. Lovely walks from the cottage to Wray Castle and Lake Windermere. The garden is spacious and secure which welcomes a wonderful variety of garden birds who frequently visit the feeders. We will definitely return to Manor House Cottage.
