Move seamlessly from cooking up a feast in the kitchen, to enjoying your meal at the breakfast bar, before retiring to relax on the sofa. Upstairs is the lovely double bedroom and modern bathroom with a shower over the bath. Outside is a great patio garden, perfect for al fresco dining and a soak in the private hot tub!

This cottage can be found in the hamlet of Grizebeck, just a couple of miles from Kirkby-in-Furness. Surrounded by pretty countryside, Grizebeck is an ideal little hamlet if you're looking for a break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Explore the quieter footpaths and hills nearby before stopping off at the hamlet's 300-year-old coaching inn for a hearty meal and refreshing drink. In nearby Kirkby-in-Furness, you'll find a Post Office with village shop, two pubs and the railway station. Ulverston is only 6 miles away. The birthplace of Stan Laurel, Ulverston has a long history as a bustling market town and has a wealth of independent shops and cafes.

Both the Lake District National Park and beautiful South Cumbrian Coast are easily accessible from Grizebeck. Learn all about the history of the Furness Peninsula at Dalton Castle and Furness Abbey. Spend a day exploring the nature reserves on Walney Island, depending on the timing of your visit there's plenty to see from a wide variety of birds to the grey seals who also like to visit this part of the Cumbrian coast. Head north into the Lakes. The stunning valleys of Eskdale and Wasdale are sure to delight fans of fell walking, or head to Coniston Water for picturesque lakeshore walks.

The open-plan ground floor allows for easy, sociable living - just perfect in a holiday cottage for two. The living area has a leather two-seater sofa and two leather armchairs, ideal for relaxing evenings in. For entertainment there's a TV with Freeview and DVD player. The large windows at the end of the living area mean you can gaze out at the view, even when the weather isn't on your side. At the other end of the room is the great well-equipped kitchen. There's an electric oven and gas hob, under counter fridge and separate under counter freezer, useful washing machine and a handy dishwasher - though you won't mind doing the washing up when you see the view from the kitchen sink! Pull up a stool at the breakfast bar to dine in style.

Up the stairs to the first floor. Up here is the pretty double bedroom and modern bathroom. Thanks to its two picture windows and two Velux windows, the bedroom is lovely and light - you're sure to feel instantly relaxed in here. Either side of the leather double bed is a handy bedside table and there's also a chest of drawers and built in cupboard with hanging space. A cream sofa positioned under one of the Velux windows is the perfect spot to escape with a good book.

Reinvigorate tired muscles under the rainfall effect shower, or indulge in a long soak in the tub.

Open the door from the living area to the delightful rear patio garden.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages.
