Nestled to the south-west of Lake Windermere surrounded by woodland and little streams, this charming cottage is perfect for you and your guests. Sleeping four over two tranquil bedrooms, this characterful property is an opportunity to escape it all in a remote location in one of the best-loved areas of the Lake District. Take a stroll around the village’s local church (1 mile), or head 300 metres further to the National Trust’s Stott Park Bobbin Mill to take in the peace and quiet of this beautiful area.

High vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and wooden flooring bring this cottage’s rustic attraction to life. Dine at the antique dining table in the open-plan living space, looking out towards an impressive bookcase and beautiful spiral staircase before retiring to the lounge to curl up on the sofas and chat in front of the fire. You’ll feel as though you’ve stepped back in time as you sit among the country-style furnishings and soft lighting. Down some steps, cook up breakfast in the delightful farmhouse-style kitchen and enjoy views of the garden as you eat in the conservatory. At the end of the day, take an indulgent soak in the freestanding bath in the bathroom among soft, pastel tones.

When you’ve explored the stunning garden and discovered the small beck that courses down over little waterfalls, head out to Lake Windermere. Fell Foot Park (3 miles) is ideal for children to let off some steam, but they also host bat walks at night-time for all the family. Head up to Windermere Canoe and Kayak (8.5 miles) and paddle on the lake for as long as you like. On dry land, there are multi-ability trails at Grizedale Forest (10 miles) and to the peak of the Old Man of Coniston (13 miles) which provides spectacular views of the lake.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

We would recommend this beautiful cottage to every fit guest,but steps to kitchen, and a very small shower room, with 2 deep steps to the shower, should be considered, for anyone not quite so able bodied. We felt privileged to be able to stay in such a warm inviting home, and so close to lake Windermere, we were very sad to leave.

This is a very special place to stay and completely unwind from the outside world. The location and charm of the property means you leave feeling calm and restored again. The hills, lakes, mountains and views combined with the luxurious yet cosy comfort of Tom Crag barn makes you want to return again and again. This is our second visit to this propRead moreerty. Hide

The cottage is very spacious. There were only the two of us staying but there would be more than ample room for four. The pictures on the website don't do it justice. The dining area, kitchen diner conservatory,upstairs bedroom and bathroom are huge. The downstairs bedroom and showerroom are smaller but definitely not cramped.

This cottage is clean, cosy and warm and is in a pretty location, right on the Greenwood Trail for the High Dam. A walk that is challenging but so worth the effort. Plenty of hot water, centrally heated (though you can have an open fire if you want!). Pretty much home from home, with most everything you could need on holiday.

The conservatory was dirty, mounds of dirt on the floor and covered with dead flies. The kitchen cupboards were full of cobwebs & the plates, cups & utencils were filthy. The dishwasher was broken. There was dirt & dust around the edges of the floor downstairs. The top bedroom was clean & the bed was comfy, however the bed sheet had holes in it. ThRead moree bathrooms were clean, apart from little pins stuck in the carpet. The garden was beautiful. Would not come back. Hide

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.
