Full of charm and character, Post Lady Cottage is a beautiful Lakeland cottage for 4 people. With a great mix of traditional features and with all the modern comforts and conveniences you could need, you really do have the best of both worlds here. Inside you'll find a cosy living room complete with wood burner, a well equipped kitchen and a lovely dining area that has fantastic bi-fold doors. Upstairs on the first floor are the 2 bedrooms, there's a kingsize room and a twin room, and the family bathroom. To the front of the cottage is parking for 2 cars and the rear is a delightful garden with decking areas and astroturf.

Backbarrow is a charming village, just 3 miles from the southern end of Lake Windermere. A great attraction on the doorstep is the popular Lakeland Motor Museum. It makes a fascinating way to spend the day and has an excellent riverside cafe for lunch with a view. Follow the river Leven that runs through the village to the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, built to transport coal and iron inland from the coast, now a popular tourist attraction where the trains take you through scenic countryside to bustling Bowness-on-Windermere.

Spend a day exploring around the southern end of Windermere, there's plenty to see and do here. 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. Head to nearby Gummer's How for a woodland walk with stunning views from the summit or enjoy a cruise around the lake from Lakeside Pier. The market town of Ulverston, birth place of Stan Laurel, has a great selection of local independent shops as well as the world's only Laurel and Hardy Museum. Why not continue on to the coast? Take in the wide open vistas whilst enjoying a bracing coastal stroll.
