Escape for a romantic, rural retreat filled with waterside walks and cosy nights in. Your dogs are welcome to adventure by your side and enjoy this fabulous location.

Nestled in the pretty hamlet of Dubwath situated on the edge of Lake Bassenthwaite with so much to explore in the immediate area. Only 200 metres from the sailing club and Bassenthwaite Lake Station where you can enjoy a cream tea on board the Orient Express train or a murder mystery evening! The Lakes Distillery is less than a mile away and offers tours and has a lovely bistro to enjoy a spot of lunch. Walkers and cyclists are spoilt with some brilliant bike tracks in Whinlatter Forest which is 8 miles away and there are some fabulous walks from your door: explore Sale Fell by walking from the cottage, directly in front of the main house or Dubwath Silver Meadows Nature Reserve opposite Bassenthwaite Lake Station.

 Walking through the enclosed garden, you enter the property into the useful hallway with storage for coats and muddy walking boots. You will then find the comfortable bedroom on the ground floor, which is a super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made up as a twin on request). The bedroom offers a peaceful retreat to switch off after a day exploring with pretty views over the garden. There is an en-suite shower room with a shower and WC. Head up the stairs to the first floor to find the bright lounge with a Smart TV, dining area and views over the open fields. It is a great place to sit quietly and watch the local wildlife and birds. The kitchen is off the lounge, compact yet well equipped and has everything you need to prepare a hearty breakfast or romantic evening meal. There is an electric oven and hob, fridge with freezer compartment, slimline dishwasher and microwave.

Venturing outside, there is an enclosed garden with seating offering the perfect area for al fresco dining, or perhaps enjoying a nice glass of wine.

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.
