This spacious and homey cottage is perfect for a family or group of friends looking to enjoy a holiday in the Lake District National Park. The quaint little village of Seatoller lies at the southern end of Borrowdale, taking you into the heart of the mountains and offering a quiet haven in the Cumbrian Fells. This lush green valley is a tapestry of grassy fields, dry-stone walls and rolling hilltops, with a dramatic backdrop of high mountain peaks all around. If you are looking to enjoy the best of Cumbria's natural environment, you have come to the right place! The whole area is a paradise for walkers and there is something to suit every level of ability.  You can walk to the summit of Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England, or can enjoy an endless array of low-level walks in the area. For more relaxed days, there are lots of fantastic picnic spots and the beautiful fairy glen waterfalls in the Langstrath Valley are perfect for a refreshing swim on a sunny day!  If you want to enjoy a bit of culture, the bustling market town of Keswick is only 20 minutes away and has lots on offer, there is a very reliable bus service which pretty much takes you door to door!

The cottage itself is wonderfully welcoming and has been freshly decorated throughout. It has a very homely feel and is equipped with everything you are likely to need on your holiday. The kitchen is well stocked for self catering and has a dining table for 5, so there is plenty of space for sitting together whilst meals are being prepared. The living room has comfortable sofas, a smart TV and slate bookshelves with a selection of books, so is a nice space to unwind at the end of the day. The highlight of the cottage has to be its idyllic location, sat at the end of a little row of white cottages next to its namesake Hause Gill, a beautiful mountain stream that cascades down from the top of Honister Pass. The charm of the surrounding area can be enjoyed from every room, each having a slightly different view. 

If you decide to head out in the evenings, there are lots of wonderful local pubs dotted all along the Borrowdale Valley, such as the Langstrath Country Inn in nearby Stonethwaite. Glaramara Hotel is just a 5 minute walk away and has a lovely little public bar serving a selection of local drinks and offering light lunches, though opening times do vary. You can also opt to drive into Keswick, which offers food from all around the world and has a lovely little cinema, as well as a brilliant theatre. You won't be short of things to do!
