Underwood is a beautiful retreat to relax in style. There's a wonderful open plan living-dining room complete with wood burner and lake views, as well as a great well equipped kitchen. All three bedrooms have their own en-suite shower rooms making it the perfect cottage for groups of friends and family holidaying together. The enclosed patio area is a welcome spot for taking in those breathtaking views and there's even a private hot tub (available 8am-10pm) to enjoy!
Located in the peaceful hamlet of Little Arrow, you're perfectly placed for enjoying everything that this corner of the South Lakes has on offer. Less than a mile's walk away along the old railway footath you'll find the charming village of Torver. Here there are two popular pubs, one doubling as a small village shop and cafe during the day; why not call in to pick up some picnic supplies or stop off on your way back to the cottage for a well deserved drink and bite to eat? Coniston is about a five minute drive away and definitely worth a visit. There's something for everyone in the village's Ruskin Museum: not only a treat for art lovers, fans of speed will love learning about Donald Campbell too. You might even be inspired by Arthur Ransome's Swallow and Amazons, set around Coniston Water. Try a spot of wild swimming, hire a canoe or paddle board, or hitch a ride on the majestic steam gondola to enjoy the water at a more sedate pace. The charming village of Hawkshead is another must visit destination, stroll around the cobbled streets after a visit to the popular Little Ice Cream Shop or stock up on lovely local produce from Hawkshead Relish.
A scenic drive along winding roads takes you to the ever popular towns of Bowness and Windermere. A trip to The World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness is a must for families and there's a great selection of cafes, bars and restaurants in Windermere that it would be rude not to try out! Take a stroll round Bowness's lovely park or admire the boats moored at lake Windermere. Head south from Underwood to the lively market town of Ulverston. The birthplace of Stan Laurel, comedy fans will love the town's Laurel and Hardy Museum, and there's a great choice of independent shops here for those who prefer a spot of retail therapy.
