  • An attractive, garden apartment with restful atmosphere
  • Ideal couple’s retreat for a quiet break away with beautiful gardens incorporating a sunny private patio
  • Stunning views across to Esthwaite Water and beyond and walking distance to the village of Hawkshead
Property code: LLH16

Stay at this sweet countryside property surrounded by beautiful gardens and wild scenery. This couple’s retreat is less than a mile from the ancient village of Hawkshead, which was beloved by William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Enjoy a scrumptious bite to eat in one of the delightful teashops and roam around the cobbled streets in this traffic-free community. There are some fantastic rural walks in the surrounding area with both Lake Windermere and Coniston Water offering scenic waterside strolls within 5 miles of this cottage.

This lovely home from home can be found on the ground floor of the owner’s property and boasts mesmerising views across the Esthwaite Valley. At the heart of this holiday retreat is a cosy lounge area with a large window that overlooks the pretty garden and fills the space with plenty of natural light. Sink into the sofa while the electric fire warms your toes and the chef between you rustles up a tasty meal in the well-equipped kitchen. Outside you’ll find a private patio area where you can enjoy a moment’s peace with a hot cup of tea. You can also access the owner’s garden, which offers a large patio area with seating and a BBQ – perfect for al fresco dining during the warmer months. When it’s time to get some rest, make your way to the bright and airy king-size bedroom, which can be made into a twin on request.

The grounds at the National Trust’s Wray Castle are well-worth exploring while you’re in the area and can be reached in 3.5 miles from the property. Located on the shores of Lake Windermere, why not combine your castle visit with a refreshing dip in the lake’s crisp, natural waters? Alternatively, there are options for canoe and kayak hire around the lake.

Had a very comfortable stay at Woodys Nook, the homemade cake on arrival was delicious. The enclosed garden was a godsend for our 2 dogs. Whilst the property is only a short walk to the village, this is via a very overgrown footpath and fields, parts of which would be boggy certain times of the year. (we were lucky). We didnt risk the narrow windinRead moreg road with dogs which is considerably further. We would recommend The Queens Head and Poppi Red for food. Note: the TV is freesat. Lovely owners Hide

Arriving late on a dark, wet Friday night before New Year we found a warm, cosy cottage with mince pies and marmalade waiting for us. The cottage had everything we needed and we soon settled in. The bed is huge and the shower fabulous and hot after a wet day on the fells. The garden is enclosed if you have a dog and looks out over fields. HawksheadRead more is a short walk away either via a footpath or along the road - we used the road mostly as so wet underfoot and had high-vis for us an the dog. Hide

The property was very comfortable, the owners were lovely & left cake, milk & marmalade for us, there is parking outside the owners property, but I would say that if you aren't good on your legs then the steps down to the property & gravel path at the side of the property with an additional step may prove to be difficult, the property was very cleaRead moren & the walk in shower was excellent, there is a short 15min walk over the fields to Hawkshead that's useful for getting to the village.
