Take your loved one and your favourite four-legged friend to this cottage near Matterdale in the Lake District. Sleeping two guests, the one-bedroom bolthole offers welcoming, characterful accommodation for those seeking an enticing, romantic retreat. Just under 2 miles from the shores of Ullswater and 4 miles from Glenridding, the charming cottage features a lovely garden for spring and summer days and a wood burner for autumn and winter evenings.
Let yourselves into the cottage, which adjoins a larger house but enjoys its privacy, via a covered entrance and lobby, with access to a utility room and WC. Take three steps down into the lounge with its country-style furniture and furnishings, and wood burner for cosy nights in together. Lose yourselves in the view from the window in here or settle down in front of the TV. Take three steps up to find yourselves in the kitchen/diner, where a picture window pulls your Lakeland surroundings right into the airy space. Rustle up romantic dinners for two then dine together against the beautiful backdrop. At the end of each delightful day, make your way up to the first floor of the cottage to your king-size bedroom and family bathroom. Wake up to views out across the fells before carrying your coffee out into the attractive garden. Take in the scenery, listen to the sound of the babbling brook and chat about your plans for the rest of the day.
Stride out from the cottage on a myriad of magnificent footpaths and routes. Walk 1 mile to see famous Aira Force waterfall and another mile down to the shores of Ullswater to catch one of the famous Ullswater steamers that cruises around the lake. Visit Keswick, 12 miles away, to browse in the shops, stock up on local produce and dine out.
