A smart, semi-detached holiday home in the pretty village of Backbarrow, this property makes a terrific base for an active Lake District family break. At the south end of the village, the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway begins its scenic Lakeland circuit under steam power. Exploring a little further afield, kids will love the Lakes Aquarium, just 2.5 miles away, while Beatrix Potter’s charming house at Hill Top is also on the western shore of Windermere, 8 miles away. A trip to Grizedale Forest, 8 miles away, makes a terrific day out too, with walking and cycling tracks, mountain bike hire, an adventure playground and a sculpture trail.

This welcoming property has been thoughtfully appointed for a family group. On the ground floor, the elegant lounge/diner is a spacious room, enjoying light from French doors which lead out onto the patio. Here, you’ll find sofa and armchair seating around a wood burner and, to the rear of the room, a dining table and chairs for four, perfect for enjoying an evening meal together and then cosying up in front of the TV. A contemporary kitchen and a handy cloakroom complete the ground-floor accommodation. Up on the first floor, there are two good-sized bedrooms – one queen-size and one twin – and a bathroom with both a bath and an overhead shower.

Outdoors, an enclosed, fenced patio with garden furniture and a BBQ is an ideal space for fun al fresco feasts in good weather.

Very clean and comfortable. We went in between Christmas and New Year for somewhere to relax, chill and basically to do nothing. The property was perfect and had everything we needed. Would recommend to anybody. Enjoyed our stay!!!!

Quiet village, but close enough to A590 to visit lots of the beautiful places a short drive away or a 3 mile walk to the south lakeside. Property was well maintained and decorated. Comfy living room, large bedrooms and downstairs loo which was nice after a days walking. Patio was nice for sitting out with a drink at the end of the day. Neighbours wRead moreere all friendly and some nice walks for the dog. The Anglers Arms in Haverthwaite does lovely food but book in advance if you have a dog to avoid disappointment. Will definitely look to come back to Dawn Cottgae. Hide

The property is very comfortable and adequately equipped with everything you could need. When I stayed there were a few warm days and nights. My only negative comment would be on those evenings when you may want to sleep with a bedroom window open, there is significant road noise from the very close A590 main road late evening and very early morninRead moreg.

Dawn Cottage is a good base to explore the area, lots of walks around the village and beyond, enjoyed by our two dogs. Enjoyed our time here, everyone we met was friendly, local history of the village is so interesting.

Enjoyed a week stay here at Dawn Cottage. Loved sitting on an evening with the patio doors open in the late sunshine. Easy base to get out and about from. Well planned accommodation. Thank you.
