Property code: LLH35

Surrounded by fields and offering breathtaking views of the Lake District countryside, this stunning cottage with period features is a must-stay for families or small groups of up to four people. Lace up your walking boots for a stomp around Lake Windermere, or hire kayaks and canoes and admire the landscape from the water. Though located within a tranquil setting, this lovely holiday home is just half a mile from the idyllic village of Hawkshead, where there are local pubs and shops for you to explore.

Leave your muddy boots and coats in the handy porch before making your way through to the heart of the home: an inviting lounge with a wood burner and beamed ceiling. Light a fire and watch as the flames crackle and glow, filling the room with warmth as your favourite programme plays on the TV. When you’re ready to eat, a modern kitchen/diner awaits. Enjoy a scrumptious supper together at the table or head outside to the patio area for an al fresco meal on a sunny day. The garden boasts mesmerizing countryside views and is a charming place to relax from afternoon to night. When the stars come out across the sky, rest your head in one of two bedrooms: a spacious double or a charming twin.

The National Trust Beatrix Potter Gallery is a short walk away from the property’s doorstep and a must-visit for literary enthusiasts. For adventurous groups, make your way to Grizedale Forest (3 miles) and spend a day meandering along endless forest paths, riding down one of the nine cycle trails, or swinging among the trees on one of the Go Ape courses.
