Cosy rural cottage for two, in a tranquil location with easy access to Hawkshead and Ambleside.

This cottage enjoys a quiet, rural location on a country lane just a few miles from Hawkshead and Windermere. Windermere is the region’s longest lake and offers a range of boat trips, many of which depart from Ambleside, which is located five miles away from the property. One of the most popular towns in the Lakes, Ambleside has a range of eateries, as well as shops. The area is, of course, extremely popular with walkers and offers many scenic routes at a range of accessibility levels, from easy strolls to thrilling mountain climbs. Also within easy access of the property, visitors will find Coniston Water, Wray Castle, The Beatrix Potter Gallery, and the Go-Ape high ropes centre in Grizedale Forest. There really is something for everyone.

Guests enter the cottage and come straight to the cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner where the beamed ceiling, slate floor, and wood burner all contribute to the authentic atmosphere of the property. Guests do not have to forego their creature comforts though, as is there a TV and DVD which can be enjoyed from the comfortable corner sofa. There is breakfast bar with seating overlooking the kitchen area. The kitchen is well-equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher, whilst the washing machine, tumble dryer, and freezer can all be found in the external utility room, which is also a great place to store muddy boots and bikes. Upstairs, accessed via a steep narrow staircase, the bedroom is a stylish king-size room which has a pretty Chinese-style screen separating it from the bathroom, with its shower, bath, and WC.

Outside, the property benefits from an enclosed lawned garden which has table and chairs, ideal for an evening drink in this tranquil location. Off-road parking is available.

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

In general we had a great time once we got our bearings . We wish the cottage could have been closer to more amenities although it was nice being so quiet. We will definitely be back but want to be closer to either hawkshead or Ambleside

Lovely location, however this cottage needs a complete new set of utensils, pots, pans and a new mattress pans. Also needs work on the plumbing.

Cute little cottage, lovely for 2 people. Its a bit tired and needs a bit of TLC but good value for money. Easy walk into Hawkshead across the fields.

This quaint little cottage situated between Outgate and Hawkshead is the perfect location for a relaxing short stay. The surrounding area is bliss and peaceful and the cottage itself is cosy and inviting. Plenty of walks in the nearby area to choose from and the Outgate Inn is only a 15/20 minute walk down the road. I've stayed here a couple of timRead morees now and it's always a relaxing and pleasent stay. Hide

The cottage is cosy, ideally placed for good dog walks. It is lovely and warm, but a little too small for two adults and two large dogs. In an ideal location to explore the area.

Hawkshead itself has four dog friendly pubs, but you need to be aware that not all of them serve food all day. Have already booked Barn End for next year. Hide

The cottage was cute and cosy and in an excellent location for lots of beautiful walks and to explore places further afield. We took our puppy and she loved it too! We'd definitely recommend it for a couple.
