In the heart of Beatrix Potter country and close to the shore of Lake Windermere, this delightful Grade II listed cottage commands spectacular lake views, with peaceful walks to be found along the shoreline. Adjoining another property, it has been lovingly restored and exudes character with its original polished wooden and stone-flagged floors, exposed beams and a cast-iron range. The charm is also reflected in the lovely cottage garden, with the grandeur of the lakes extending beyond. It serves as an ideal base for exploring the central Lakes with Grizedale Forest, Grasmere, Hawkshead and Ambleside all close by. Just over a mile to the Hawkshead ferry and Far Sawrey and Hill Top, the home of Beatrix Potter and the famous Tower Bank. Shop 1 mile.

Beautiful old cottage. We had to contact the host at one point who was very helpful. Overall this is a beautiful old cottage stacked in history with a massive garden and lake views in a quiet rural setting away from the crowds which we all very much appreciated….. there is wifi but speeds around 1-2 mbps are ok enough for email…. I would happily recommend.

Great location although the cottage could do with some updating internally as it's looking a little tired.
