Ash Cottage lies in the village of Bouth, noted for one of Cumbria's best pubs, The White Hart Inn. The location makes for easy exploration of the southern lakes and the rolling low fells and meadows of the peninsulas and the south lakes coast.

Adjoining Ash Cottage we also have Yew Tree Cottage where Ash is second of a little row of four. Set on a very quiet narrow lane, a stone's throw from the White Hart, this little retreat offers guests a comfortable holiday home in which to relax after a day's exploration.

The Living Spaces

You step into a small lower hall with stairs that take you up into the open plan living space. Set under heavy oak beams and a pitched ceiling you have to one end a comfortable sitting-room. This leads through to the dining and kitchen area. The combination works very well, all being well furnished and perfect to both relax and wine and dine.

Large glazed doors lead out to a small patio garden, where you can enjoy a drink or meal on a warm summers day.

The laundry facilities are housed in the garage which has internal access. Although not used for car parking, it does offer bike storage along with storage for your luggage and bits and bobs.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

There are two bedrooms, the first is on the lower floor and furnished with a double bed, along with the bathroom with bath, overhead shower, basin and WC. There is also a small dressing room, also perhaps suitable for a cot - please note there is no bed in this room.

The second bedroom lies off the sitting room, again with a double bed and comfortably furnished along with an en-suite shower room, basin and WC.

Garden Spaces

French doors from the kitchen area open out to a small terraced patio garden, ideal to relax, enjoy a glass or two and watch the abundant bird life that visits.

Out & About

Bouth is a popular village. The location gives easy access to the southern fells and lakes as well as the coastal areas of the Cartmel Peninsular. A quiet peaceful place it boasts one of the best pubs, The White Hart Inn, serving excellent ales and hearty pub grub.

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

Lovely clean, quiet and cosy cottage. Ideal for cyclists with plenty of storage for bikes. Lots of room for guests too. Recommend local pub for beer but didn't get to try food cos of lockdown.

Lovely location, lovely cottage, very cosy. Lovely village. We had the best Christmas , singing Christmas carols on the village green with the local community was quite special.

We enjoyed our holiday, the area is excellent with plenty of walks and very quiet, and the village pub is very welcoming. The property was dissapointing.

We enjoyed our holiday in the cottage in May 2018 and were therefore disappointed on our return, in October 2019, to find that both the cottage and garden were suffering from a lack of TLC. There were a number of maintenance issues requiring attention, which rather spoiled our stay. The surrounding area is beautiful, even in the rain, and the localRead more White Hart pub provides good food, good cheer and is often wall to wall with dogs.

Beautiful cottage in a great South Lakes location. The cottage was very cosy, comfortable and very well equipped. As a lot of reviews say, parking was limited but we managed to park outside our cottage every day. Most definitely be staying again in the future.

Ash cottage in Bouth was lovely, it was clean, comfortable and had everything you need for a holiday cottage. The location was very quiet and peaceful. If only there was a guaranteed parking space, this is the only reason we wont go there again, which is a great pity because we loved the cottage.

Reviewed by Harry 9th August 2019

The cottage was lovely - well equipped and clean. Be aware that the bedrooms are split across two floors but there are bathrooms on both floors - just be aware if you need to be near small children. The location is good and we were able to explore the Lake District fully, the local farm was a particular delight. The only issue was with the parking Read more- there is parking outside but it's not designated to the cottage and as there's no parking for the neighbours they often take up the parking spaces.

The property needs a little update and loving, (new fridge and dishwasher would be good) but the location of the property is fantastic and makes up for the downfalls. Meals at the White Hart are incredible, with access to other towns/villages nearby and nice walks on the doorstep.

There is no doubt that this cottage is beautiful and provides an amazing home feeling. It has a wide range of equipment and they provided wash up tablets which is helpful.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
