Studded on the western edge of Lake Windermere in a location that inspired Beatrix Potter herself, this charming property is a delight for families seeking a tranquil staycation. Beneath the stone exterior belies a cosy retreat characterised by elegant decor and roaring fires, and of course a fantastic farmhouse-style kitchen tailor-made for family feasts. On summer afternoons, the vast garden is a treat for afternoon tea with spectacular views of the sparkling waters of Lake Windermere.

Step back in time from the moment you enter the exquisite kitchen/diner, firing up the Aga ready to cook up a storm using the ample workspace and gadgets. Mealtimes are a treat by flickering candlelight at the table, especially on special occasions where you can crack open the bubbly and celebrate in style. Comfortable and sated, the cosy lounge has enough seating for you to curl up by the fire, using the last of your reserves to play a board game or two. Busy days call for a spot of pampering in the ground-floor shower room, or indulge with a soak in the en-suite of the first-floor master bedroom. The remaining bedrooms are equally as impressive, including an upstairs twin with an en-suite shower room, a single room ideal for children, and a ground-floor double bedroom with pretty views. Outside, the sweeping garden overlooks the surrounding countryside, offering an idyllic setting for al fresco dining.

Take a short stroll along the lane to reach the former residence of Beatrix Potter, or visit the popular gallery in Hawkshead village to admire original copies of her famous illustrations. Now owned by the National Trust, both attractions are within 3 miles and are a delight to explore thanks to their breathtaking surroundings and close proximity to Esthwaite Water, the inspiration behind the beloved storybook character Jeremy Fisher.

Fabulous fully equipped cottage which we have stayed at for over 20 years and hopefully the next ! Great pub on the doorstep and you wouldn't think they allowed dogs as there is no smell; immaculate place. Aga is heaven/Perhaps a BBQ would be a good idea.

Couldnt fault the cottage or the cleanliness. Everything that you need in a week away. The only thing that annoyed us was that we were sitting in the garden and contractors came in to tend to the gardens and clean the windows. There was no prior warning. Wasnt ideal with three dogs and two kids - the gate was left open as well.

A really lovely cottage with plenty of room. There were 6 of us and 2 dogs and we spent a great week there. The garden was a delight and, as we had the 2 pooches with us, was used every day for playtime. We also sat outside most days as the weather was lovely (end of September!!)

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.
