Perfectly located in the heart of the National Park, this delightful holiday cottage (one of a pair) is peacefully situated on the lakeshore road, only yards from Esthwaite Water (fishing available), and less than a mile from Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter and the famous Tower Bank Arms. Beautifully appointed in chic, contemporary style, the property retains its cosy cottage features. The front garden faces the lake, which has excellent views in winter, whilst the large rear garden backs onto woodland. Quintessentially English, this lovely area is steeped in history, and there are delightful walks direct from the doorstep. Hawkshead, Windermere, Grizedale Forest, Ambleside and Grasmere are local places of interest. Dove Cottage - the home of Wordsworth - is open to the public all year. Shops ¾ mile.

A spacious and very comfortable holiday house. We would stay again and recommend it. Ample parking, lots of outside space, great location for travelling around the area.

We had an amazing week at Broomriggs Cottage. It is beautifully located, overlooking Elsthwaite and just a few minutes drive from Windermere. The local town of Hawkshead is very pretty with some great places to eat and a chocolate factory for the kids. The property is very comfortable with the downstairs bedroom (with shower) being ideal for my elderly parents. At the back of the cottage are some woods leading up a hill which are wonderful for exploring with the kids. I would highly recommend this cottage as a great place to stay.
