Set in rural splendour amongst the rugged wilderness of the Lake District National Park, this attractive cottage is the ideal retreat for small groups and families of up to four guests. Boasting spectacular views of the fells and traditional details such as timber beams and exposed stone, your charming abode offers comfort in abundance. Return from bracing walks throughout the Duddon Valley, to bask in the peaceful ambience of your home-away-from-home.

Escape the elements and hunker down inside on chilly afternoons, exchanging your walking boots for slippers and seizing a glass of wine ready to unwind in style. A farmhouse-style kitchen has all the trimmings for preparing delicious feasts that are best enjoyed around the table, or perhaps you would prefer to step outside for some al fresco dining on the patio on summer evenings. There’s a delightful lounge area complete with views of your surroundings and comfortable furniture, just the spot for enjoying your first coffee of the day. Climbing the stairs will reveal two elegant bedrooms, both of which have their own en-suite washing facilities. You’ll also have private parking for two cars, and ample lawn space in the additional garden.

Immerse yourself in the ethereal countryside as you explore near and far, taking a walk on the wild side as you scale hill climbs and woodland walks, or dive into the water at Duddon for a taste of natural swimming 2 miles away. Stroll around the pretty shores of Coniston Water 16 miles away and factor in a visit to Hawkshead to experience the cobbled streets and chocolate-box charm of the village. Home to the Beatrix Potter Gallery and offering a scattering of pubs, shops and cafes, it is a treat to explore 16.5 miles away.

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.
