Hill View (Bouth) is one of our NEW COTTAGES!
Hill View is a characterful Lakeland cottage, located in the peaceful village of Bouth. Full of charm and with plenty of original features, Hill View is a welcoming home from home for up to 3 people and 2 dogs. Inside you'll find a well equipped kitchen-diner and a cosy living room, complete with wood burner, on the ground floor. Upstairs on the first floor are the 2 bedrooms and the family bathroom. Outside, accessed through the owner's garage next door, is a delightful rear garden area - please note, the garden is available April to October only.
Bouth can be found between the southern tips of Lake Windermere and Coniston Water, not far from the south Cumbrian coast - there's plenty to see and do during your stay here. Bouth has a popular pub, The White Hart, so why not treat yourselves to a night off and enjoy a refreshing drink and hearty meal in a convivial atmosphere? There are some lovely local footpaths to explore straight from the front door. Grizedale Forest is less than a 30 minute drive away and has plenty of walking trails and biking routes, as well as a High Ropes course for adrenaline junkies! A 5 minute drive will take you to The Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, where the trains take you through scenic countryside from Haverthwaite Station to Lakeside Station and from there you can continue your journey aboard a Windermere Steamer and cruise up to Bowness or Ambleside. The pretty village of Cartmel, with its 12th century Priory, is a definite must for any foodies as it's home to the famous Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding as well as the 2 Michelin starred restuarant L'Enclume.
Less than a 15 minute drive away is Ulverston, a vibrant market town with a great selection of independent shops and cafes. The birthplace of Stan Laurel, Ulverston is also home to the world's only Laurel and Hardy Museum - a must for any comedy fan. Spend a day exploring around the southern end of Windermere. Enjoy a lakeside picnic at Fell Foot, a beautiful National Trust lakeshore park, before visiting The Lakeside Aquarium or the Stott Park Bobbin Mill to learn all about the industrial heritage of the area. Why not head to Coniston? Another charming Lakeland village sitting beneath the mighty Coniston Old Man, a fantastic fell walk for the avid hiker. The south Cumbrian coast is also within easy reach; there are plenty of great spots to choose from here so enjoy a bracing coastal walk whilst you take in the beautiful wide open vistas.
