Escape to the western Lake District with a loved one with this charming cottage for two just half a mile from the shores of Buttermere.

This characterful holiday home is a traditional farm cottage tucked away in the beautiful village of Buttermere. This tranquil area is surrounded by dramatic fells, farms and woodlands and is home to three lakes - Buttermere, Crummock Water and Loweswater. The village itself has two good pubs, a small chapel and two cafes - one of which serves homemade Buttermere ice cream!

You can experience superb walks from your own front door, from challenging mountain hikes to gentle lakeshore strolls - the choices are endless and the views are breathtaking. Cyclists will also enjoy the many routes from the village including the Honister, Whinlatter and Newlands Passes. Scale Force, the highest waterfall in the Lake District, is just a short walk from Buttermere, hidden away in a deep tree-lined gorge on the way from Crummock Water to Red Pike.

Sleeping two guests in one bedroom, Wilkinsyke is the perfect cottage for walkers and tourists looking to discover the Western Lake District. There is a well presented sitting room to relax in, a well-equipped kitchen, a double bedroom and an upstairs reading room.

The popular market town of Cockermouth is within a 25 minute drive offering boutique shops, pubs and cafes. Keswick town is 30 minutes away and you'll find outdoor shops aplenty as well as pubs, restaurants, cafes, attractions and a cinema and theatre.

The comfortable lounge seats two people. There is a newly fitted wood burner (initial wood supplied ) and TV with Freesat.

The kitchen is equipped with an electric hob, oven, microwave, toaster, fridge, freezer (both undercounter size) and a drop leaf dining table. There are stunning lake views from the kitchen window.

Off the kitchen is a separate WC and a bathroom with bath, separate shower and wash basin.

On the first floor is a double bedroom and a reading room. The double room is furnished with a double bed, chair and wardrobe.

Outside opposite the cottage there is an enclosed garden, ideal for picnics. There are lovely fell views and an ice cream parlour just next door - wonderful!

Perfect location for walking and enjoying this special part of the Lakes. Major fell walks on the doorstep + National Trust created walks at the two nearby lakes. Good local food to eat out (no shop though so you need to be stocked up before). Cottage not centrally heated - might be a problem in winter, though localised heating is available. Good sRead morehower and kitchen equipment. We had a lovely week. Hide

The cottage is basically tired. Needs some tlc. It's a pity the cottage doesn't match its perfect location.
