Providing welcoming accommodation for four, this property offers stunning Lake District views and features exposed wooden beams, a picturesque courtyard garden and a warming wood burner.

A short drive from the village of Buttermere and close to Crummock Water, this cottage enjoys an enviable position surrounded by magnificent countryside. It’s a stone-fronted former barn offering characterful accommodation for up to four people. Inside is a charming, open-plan living-dining-kitchen area with a wood burning stove and original wooden beams. Upstairs on the first floor are the two bedrooms, a king and a double, and the family bathroom which has a shower over the bath. Outside is a pretty garden with a picnic bench for al fresco dining. There's also parking for two cars in the courtyard in front of the cottage.

The Buttermere Valley is a haven for walkers; from days out on the high fells to lower-level woodland rambles and lakeside strolls, there's something for everyone. Experienced hikers can enjoy a long day out on the nearby fell tops, tackling Robinson before continuing onwards over Dale Head, Maiden Moor and Catbells. Explore the woods and tarn at nearby Cogra Moss or walk from the cottage to Buttermere village where you treat yourselves to delicious homemade cakes and ice cream at Syke Farm Tea Room. With Crummock Water, Buttermere and Loweswater all within easy reach, a lakeside picnic is a must, and the well prepared can also wild swim.

A scenic 30-minute drive will bring you to the bustling market town of Keswick. There is a good selection of outdoor and independent shops, perfect for indulging in a spot of retail therapy, and a great choice of different eateries to try out. For an evening out, take in a performance at the town's renowned Theatre by the Lake or watch a film at the family-owned Alhambra Cinema. Cockermouth, a charming Georgian market town and the childhood home of William Wordsworth, is a 20-minute drive in the other direction and is certainly worth a visit. Families will love a day trip to the Lake District Wildlife Park at nearby Bassenthwaite, whilst adults can enjoy a tour and tasting at the popular Lakes Distillery near Setmurthy.

Inside this Lakeland stone cottage is a welcoming, open-plan living-dining-kitchen area; with beautiful wooden beams, this room is full of charm and character. The two-seater sofa and two inviting armchairs are positioned in front of the wood burning stove and there's also a TV in here, making it a perfect space for cosy evenings in. The kitchen area sits snugly in the corner of the room and has an electric oven and separate hob, built-in microwave and fridge-freezer. Next to the kitchen is the dining table, making this a great social space, perfect for convivial mealtimes whilst catching up on the day's events.

The stairs lead from the dining area up to the first floor, where you'll find the two bedrooms and bathroom.

The first bedroom you come to on the half landing is the lovely double bedroom. A cosy room with a vaulted ceiling and a feature low window that was once the top of the former barn doors. There's also a wardrobe and chest of drawers for storage too. The next room up the remaining stairs is the family bathroom. With a WC, washbasin and electric shower over the bath, you can either indulge in a long soak in the tub or reinvigorate muscles tired from walking in the shower. Last but not least, at the end of the landing is the master bedroom. With a king-size bed, original wooden beams and quirky cottage-style windows, this really is a wonderful room, full of charm and character. A quaint dressing table and stool are positioned under the rooflight, there are useful hooks on the back of the latch door, and the bedside tables have handy drawers for storage.

To the side and rear of the cottage is a delightful garden. A paved path weaves its way past pretty borders to a picnic table. With wonderful views of the surrounding fells, it's a fantastic spot for al fresco dining with a stunning backdrop.

There is also parking for two cars in the courtyard in front of the cottage.

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.
