Lying close to the heart of the Lake District, this delightful cottage is full of charm and character and makes a fabulous hideaway for families, couples and friends exploring this incredible area. Surrounded by truly breathtaking scenery, the cottage dates back over three centuries and has been sympathetically updated to provide fresh, cosy accommodation for up to six guests. Set at the end of a single-track road in a beautifully secluded spot on a working sheep farm, this tastefully furnished getaway features ancient timber beams, exposed stone floors, whitewashed walls and a wood burner set in a rustic-style inglenook.

A wood-panelled hallway greets you as you enter, leading through to the cosy lounge/diner. Brimming with character, this beautifully furnished room has latched doors, wooden beams, comfortable seating and a lovely wood burner alongside a relaxing dining table. The ground floor also has a stylishly updated, fully equipped kitchen and a cheerful bathroom with underfloor heating. Upstairs, there are three characterful bedrooms with picturesque views, latched doors, low ceilings and some uneven floorboards: two charming double rooms and a lovely twin. Outside, the fenced garden has a large lawn and a picnic table making it an ideal spot for sitting back and taking in the magnificent views surrounding this tranquil, secluded property.

Encircled by dramatic fells, the cottage is a fantastic base for walkers, climbers and hikers, with Latterbarrow, Cathedral Cave and The Old Man of Coniston all within 5 miles. Also within a 5-mile radius are Coniston Water, Windermere, Rydal Water, Esthwaite Water and Grasmere, with other local attractions including Rydal Mount and Gardens, Wray Castle and Brantwood, all within 7 miles.

I cannot praise this cottage enough. Location is absolutely unbeatable. Beautifully laid out with very cosy sofas and beds. In my opinion best experienced in the winter months when you can use the fire to its full potential. Located on a working farm, you have the company of beautiful cows, sheep and sheep dogs. Fresh eggs on request. Absolutely pRead moreerfect home away from home cottage. Didnt want to leave. Dealing with original cottages was easy and smooth. Would 100% recommend. Hide

Low Arnside is an idyllic cottage in the heart of truly breathtaking countryside. It has everything you could need including total peace and quiet. The farm is a working farm so there are animals around which is a bonus. A wonderful holiday in a wonderful place. We will definitely return.

We really loved the remoteness, lack of WiFi and being in such a beautiful location. The house is perfect with a dog due to flag stone floors downstairs and the private garden. The wood burning stove makes it super cosy in the sitting room and other rooms get warm with the storage heaters. I was concerned about the downstairs bathroom because Im pRead moreregnant and need to go in the night, but the stairs are carpeted and easy to navigate so it wasnt a problem at all. We were only two people and the dog so we had quite a lot of space, it would feel a bit tight with 6 adults but lovely with children. Lots of low doors but they have padding on which saved my head on many occasions. Hide
