Property code: SZ596

Converted from some of the oldest buildings in Windermere, this spacious property retains many original features and makes a wonderful holiday home for a family or group of friends exploring the south-east Lake District.

Just a mile from the edge of the lake, the pretty village of Windermere has a choice of welcoming pubs, restaurants and cafes, providing a range of refreshment at the end of a great day’s exploration. Nearby Bowness-on-Windermere is home to The World of Beatrix Potter, and you can take a ferry across Windermere to discover Wray Castle and the stunning Claife Viewing Station. Heading west you can visit Hill Top (5 miles) or climb The Old Man of Coniston (12 miles). There are numerous quaint villages in the area including Ambleside (4.5 miles) and Hawkshead (9 miles). A wide variety of activities to take part in include mountain biking, climbing, golf, canoeing, kayaking, boat cruises, horse riding and paddleboarding.

Stepping into this bright and attractively renovated property, the spacious lounge is an ideal spot to unwind in, with plenty of seating, TV and a warming wood burner, with original ceiling beams adding character to the room. The stylishly designed kitchen/diner has flagstone floors and wooden beams and is a lovely sociable space for preparing and sharing your favourite meals. The light and relaxing diner is set in front of a wood burner-effect gas fire which is in an original brick fireplace, and makes a lovely spot for you to all gather together. The sleek, attractive kitchen is equipped with an electric range-style oven with gas hobs, a microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a handy central island unit. There’s also boot room and a WC on the ground floor. The wooden staircase leads to the three first-floor bedrooms. Please note there are some lower beams upstairs. The characterful first king-size bedroom features an exposed stone wall and wooden beams in a vaulted ceiling. The second king-size room has a feature stone wall and a view over the garden, along with a TV and plenty of storage space.

This is a delightful property. We spent a week here in the first week of December. What a lovely home to get snowed in at. The Sky TV was a welcome asset to the cottage during this time as we couldnt go site seeing as planned. The beds are comfortable and the cottage warm and cosy.
