  • A traditional Lakeland cottage with plenty of original features
  • Located next to a friendly pub in a delightful Cumbria village
  • Sit back in the pretty shared garden with private patio
Property code: SZ253

Featuring original exposed beams, flagstone floors and wood burners, this charming cottage is full of character and makes a delightful base for a couple or family exploring Windermere and Ulverston.

This is a characterful Lakeland cottage, located in the peaceful village of Bouth. Full of charm and with plenty of original features, the cottage is a welcoming home from home for up to three people and two dogs. Inside you'll find a well equipped kitchen/diner and a cosy living room, complete with wood burner, on the ground floor. Upstairs on the first floor are the two bedrooms and the family bathroom. Outside, accessed through the owner's garage next door, is a delightful rear garden area - please note, the garden is available April to October only.

Bouth can be found between the southern tips of Lake Windermere and Coniston Water, not far from the south Cumbrian coast - there's plenty to see and do during your stay here. Bouth has a popular pub so why not treat yourselves to a night off and enjoy a refreshing drink and hearty meal in a convivial atmosphere? There are some lovely local footpaths to explore straight from the front door. Grizedale Forest is less than a 30-minute drive away and has plenty of walking trails and biking routes, as well as a high ropes course for adrenaline junkies! A five-minute drive will take you to The Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, where the trains take you through scenic countryside from Haverthwaite Station to Lakeside Station and from there you can continue your journey aboard a Windermere Steamer and cruise up to Bowness or Ambleside. The pretty village of Cartmel, with its 12th-century priory, is a definite must for any foodies as it's home to the famous Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding as well as a two-Michelin-starred restaurant.

Less than a 15-minute drive away is Ulverston, a vibrant market town with a great selection of independent shops and cafes. The birthplace of Stan Laurel, Ulverston is also home to the world's only Laurel and Hardy Museum - a must for any comedy fan. Spend a day exploring around the southern end of Windermere. Enjoy a lakeside picnic at Fell Foot, a beautiful National Trust lakeshore park, before visiting The Lakeside Aquarium or the Stott Park Bobbin Mill to learn all about the industrial heritage of the area. Why not head to Coniston? Another charming Lakeland village sitting beneath the mighty Coniston Old Man, a fantastic fell walk for the avid hiker. The south Cumbrian coast is also within easy reach; there are plenty of great spots to choose from here so enjoy a bracing coastal walk whilst you take in the beautiful wide open vistas.

Head inside and you go straight into the quirky-shaped kitchen/diner. In here, you'll find an electric oven with ceramic hob, fridge, freezer, handy microwave and useful dishwasher. A utility area at the end of the kitchen also houses a washing machine and tumble dryer, should you need to make use of that during your stay. A wood burner sits next to the dining area, making this is a lovely cosy spot for enjoying a home-cooked meal. The charming living room is full of character with wonderful original exposed beams and a stone flagged floor. Relax on the sofa in front of the wood burner here and compare notes on the day's events. There's also a TV for entertainment too.

The stairs lead off the kitchen up to the first floor and the two lovely bedrooms. The first is a spacious double room, with a feature fireplace and original wooden beams. There's also a wardrobe and useful chest of drawers for storage, and a cute window seat, the perfect spot for catching up with a good book - or simply take a seat and watch the world go by. The second bedroom is just as lovely as the first. This room is a single bedroom but it does have a three-quarter bed. There are also more of those characterful exposed beams and a useful wardrobe too.

Also on the first floor is the spacious family bathroom. In here you'll find the WC, wash basin and a bath with shower over. Whether you prefer a relaxing soak in the bath or a refreshing shower, there's a ladder radiator to warm your towels.

Outside is a delightful rear garden. Accessed via the owner's garage next door, this garden is shared with the owners but there is a fenced off area including a patio. The garden is only available April to end of September and it's a lovely spot to sit out and enjoy the spring/summer sunshine. To the front of the cottage is another small area that catches the sun from early in the morning all the way through to late afternoon. Enjoy your morning coffee out here before heading off on your day's adventures.

A very comfortable cottage, spacious and very clean with everything you could need. Just to note, the TV only has standard channels and a DVD player but the wifi was very good so this wasn't a problem. Location-wise, Bouth is easy to get to from the motorway and is a great base to visit areas around Coniston and Windermere. The coastal areas to theRead more south can be overlooked but are worth a visit. We recommend going for a walk in the village after dark as you can see bats and even a couple of owls! Hide

We would highly recommend Hill View Cottage; it was a lovely property with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. It is situated in a quiet village with plenty of walks and open space. Steph, the owner, was welcoming and friendly without intruding on our holiday and willing to help if we needed her.
