Enjoying a tucked away location among 3 acres of grounds, this idyllic cottage offers luxurious accommodation for couples who want a relaxing base to retreat to after spending the days discovering quaint towns and exploring the glorious Cumbrian countryside. Stroll the streets of nearby Stavely, stopping in the ice-cream parlour or to sample some ales on a tour of Hawkshead Brewery. Enjoy a gentle wander through Dorothy Farrer's Spring Wood Nature Reserve or hike the challenging trail up Reston Scar for unparalleled views over the South Lakes.

 

With shared use of the swimming pool complex with hot tub and sauna, your holiday home is the perfect place to unwind and recharge your batteries. Boasting contemporary styling and luxurious soft furnishings your romantic retreat is a welcoming and restful space. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining room is light and airy with tiled flooring and stylish lighting. Light the wood burner and curl up on the sumptuous sofa to chat about highlights of your day. At the end of the day, head up the open stairs to your indulgent double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and private balcony. Outside, your private patio is a lovely spot to enjoy morning coffee or an alfresco lunch.

 

Take to the water on nearby Lake Windermere (5 miles), the largest of Britain's natural lakes. Hire a kayak or canoe to explore the lake or for a less strenuous journey why not take the steamer to one of the picturesque lakeside towns? Sample local produce in one of Windermere's award-winning restaurants and discover the animals that make their home in and around the lake at the Lakes Aquarium. View the vista that inspired Wainwright on his journey through the Lake District with a walk up Orrest Head (7 miles), the glittering water below leading him to decide to write his famous Lakeland Guide.

 

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

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
