Lanthwaite Green Cottage is one of our NEW COTTAGES!
A short drive from the village of Buttermere and close to Crummock Water, Lanthwaite Green Cottage enjoys an enviable position surrounded by magnificent countryside. This Lakeland stone fronted former barn offers characterful accommodation for up to 4 people. Inside is a charming open plan living-dining-kitchen area; with a wood burning stove and original wooden beams, it's a lovely cosy space. Upstairs on the first floor are the 2 bedrooms, a king and a double, and the family bathroom which has a bath with a shower over. Outside is a pretty garden with a picnic bench for al fresco dining. There's also parking for 2 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 are 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.
