Set in the small village of Backbarrow less than 3 miles from the southern tip of Lake Windermere, this delightful modern cottage makes a great base for your Lake District adventures. Providing ample accommodation for four guests, this dog-friendly cottage benefits from stylish and spacious living areas and a lovely patio garden.

We enjoyed a lovely stay here with our 2 dogs. The cottage has everything you need and the weather was good so we were able to enjoy sitting in the garden on an evening. The location is good for exploring the South Lakes just a shame nowhere to walk to on an evening for a drink, the nearest pub is on a busy road so have to drive. The cottage was Read moregreat for a weeks stay, just a few cobwebs in bedrooms and could do with a more comfy sofa for relaxing after a days walking. Was value for money and would return. Hide

Cosy, comfortable cottage, near to Haverthwaite Railway, Lake Windermere & Grizedale Forest which make good days out. The local village has an interesting history if you take a walk to the river.

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.

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.

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.
