Charming 17th century cottage located in a secluded valley on the edge of Grizedale Forest, surrounded by stunning countryside and scenic walks.

This property enjoys a secluded rural location, in a quiet valley right on the edge of Grizedale Forest. The forest can be accessed directly from the cottage, via a bridleway which leads directly from the front door. The forest has a fantastic visitors’ centre, which offers a range of walking and cycling routes, a sculpture trail, cafe, children’s adventure playground, Segway hire and a Go-Ape adventure centre with high ropes and thrilling zip wire. The village of Satterthwaite and Hawkshead are nearby, and both Coniston Water and Lake Windermere are just a short drive away, offering a range of boat trips and water sports.

This property is a typical 17th century Lakeland farmhouse, which offers accommodation for four people. On entering the property, guests will come to the welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with its cosy open fire, comfy sofas, TV/DVD, and CD, making this a relaxing space to enjoy after a day of sightseeing or hiking. The dining table to one side of the room seats four, whilst the kitchen area, to the rear of the room, is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher.

The bathroom is also located on the first floor and shower over the bath and WC.

Outside, the property has beautiful orchard gardens with large lawn areas, which make a lovely place in which to relax and enjoy the tranquillity. A barn is available for bike storage and also houses the washing machine. There is ample off-road parking.

Absolutely wonderful cottage with a kitchen equipped with everything we could have wanted and more. Warm welcoming and helpful owners who live next door. The location is second to non.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Low Dale Park Cottage and with an 18month old baby in tow, we had to be careful about our choice of destination - we were not disappointed!

Beautifully secluded cottage with absolutely everything you could need included. The only drawback was that the garden was not attached to the property, which meant we couldn't just open the door to let the dog out, and he couldn't come and go as he pleased. This was not really an issue, but I feel it should be mentioned in the cottage description.Read more Other than that I would say the cottage was pretty nearly perfect! Hide

A fully equip cottage , above and beyond what is usually offered. The owners live next door are friendly and offered their help if required. A real friendly welcome from them. The adjacent orchard, a walled secure garden is a wonderful bonus for any dog owner and would be one of the reasons to revisit the property again as have many others previousRead morely. Hide

The cottage had everything we needed and the large enclosed garden was perfect for our two cairn terriers and with no sheep in the immediate vicinity this made for a very relaxed stay. We would gladly come back , I'm sure an off season break would be very cosy with the open fire, kindling and logs supplied foc.

Lovely cottage in a fantastic setting. Absolutely gorgeous surroundings and so peaceful. Hosts were very helpful. Cottage was just as Hideaways described it and was very comfortable.

Had an excellent week, cool for the Lakes but no fault of the cottage! Did think a wood burner, from my own experience, would be more economical and give off more heat. Good walled orchard for letting dog out.
