A warm welcome awaits you at 2 Orchard Cottages; a pretty Lakeland property packed full of character and nestled in the rolling countryside of the Furness region of Cumbria. Refurbished to offer comfortable and homey accommodation for up to four people, this beautiful slate-built cottage provides a quiet retreat for anyone wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of their busy lives. The small enclosed courtyard garden presents further opportunity to relax in the summer months, and with its outdoor bistro table and chairs surrounded by wonderful plants, it's a great place for some alfresco dining.
The cottage is located in the tiny village of Haverthwaite, in one of the quieter areas of Cumbria just within the Lake District National Park. It has excellent transport routes from the M6 motorway and is only seven miles from the vibrant market town of Ulverston. The foot of Windermere, one of the region's best known and most visited lakes is less than five miles from the property, and the River Leven which flows out of the lake passes through the village on its journey to Morecambe Bay. Cumbria's foodie capital, Cartmel, with its picturesque Priory in the village centre, is just a 20-minute drive away, and the whole area is known for its fresh produce and excellent choice of eateries.
Exploring the Lake District National Park and the Furness Penninsula couldn't be easier from Orchard Cottages, and there is so much on offer for those yearning to walk or explore the great outdoors. Cycling and watersports opportunities abound, and there are plenty of chances to spot the local wildlife for those wishing to do so. Haverthwaite is also a perfect destination for anyone seeking to entertain children of all ages, with the Haverthwaite Steam Railway, Lakeland Aquarium, Windermere Steamers' Launch and the Motor Museum all within a five-mile drive; there is plenty on offer whatever the weather.
