The Burrow is one of our NEW COTTAGES!
Looking for a stylish character apartment in a peaceful location, with stunning views and direct access to the shores of Windermere as well as its own dedicated boat parking space? Then look no further! Let us introduce you to The Burrow a perfect retreat for a family or two couples holidaying together sleeping four people in two bright bedrooms. The large living area is delightful with high ceilings, tall windows and some lovely original features. Take a seat on the sofa and watch the flames flickering in the wood-burner or pull up a chair in front of the window and drink in the beautiful view of the lake; take a breath and feel yourself relax. The bathroom has cosy underfloor heating and a choice of bath or separate shower whilst the sleek modern kitchen has all the appliances built in, fitting in seamlessly with the living area but ready and waiting however much - or little - you like to cook. Outside the grand shared garden has mature trees and extensive lawns to enjoy as well as that rare direct lake access that is so coveted in the Lake District!
Just a short wander down a track past meadows and woodlands is the shore of beautiful Windermere. Picnic benches on a large grassy area invite you to bring along some food and perhaps your favourite tipple and make the most of this stunning location. The Burrow benefits from a space to park a boat beside the track and the option to launch from the gravel beach into the lake. The beach also offers an enticing entrance to the lake for swimming or for children to paddle in the shallows, or they may prefer to play in the pretty stream that babbles down to the lake through the grass, either way the scene is set for an idyllic afternoon.
The Burrow may feel a long way from anywhere, tucked away in its sylvan nook, but all the attractions of the southern Lake District are on your doorstep. The Lakes Aquarium, Motor Museum, Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway and the Windermere lake cruises are but a few minutes away. Stott Park Bobbin Mill is a neighbour and pretty little Hawkshead is just up the road. Take a boat across to Fell Foot Park for a cream tea or immerse yourself in the world of Beatrix Potter at her former home, Hill Top. How about climbing up Gummers How on the other side of Windermere to see if you can spot The Burrow from the top, it's a small fell and easily reached but the views are superb. With easy access to the A590 you could also turn away from the hills and explore the southern Cumbrian coast, facing Morecombe Bay this area has a microclimate and character all of it's own - delightful!
