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.

This is a beautifully presented and warm cottage with stunning views. Very well set out and great parking. Very comfortable with thought put into nearly everything. ( Take milk as there was none to start you off but there was tea/ coffee). Lovely hot shower over bath and good to have anti- slip pads on bath and a hand rail ( very important feature Read morefor myself due to arthritic mobility issues) we would definitely stay here again.

We had a lovely week at Teacher's Cottage in mixed weather. The kitchen was ideal for Pam to paint from with lovely views and plenty of table space. We enjoyed lots of walks from the door and particularly liked Aira Force and the woods around it when the weather wasn't great. We would like to return and will recommend to friends and family.

Lovely cottage. Quiet location with lots of options for walks. Watch out for the tight turn opposite the church into the lane the cottage is located at the end of.

This cottage is in a beautiful location, quiet, peaceful and amazing views. Kitted out with everything you need, right down to binoculars, backpacks and even a spare pair of wellies. It really is home from home.

This cottage was in an absolutely superb location with stunning views. It was comfortable and very well equipped . There were a few teething problems possibly from being a new let which were eventually sorted out and the company that manage the property were responsive and helpful. Brilliant location for accessing amazing bits of the Lake District Read more. We would definitely go back . Hide
