Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Hawkshead - 3 Vale View

Stunning Views, Lovely fresh interior with two Bedrooms - sleeps 4

The Cottage dates back to 1860 and has been completely refurbished to ta very high standard.

Free Wi-Fi available at Cottage.

Accommodation: This is an ' upside down ' Cottage.

2 Bedrooms Downstairs, Living room area and Kitchen are upstairs - to take advantage of the Fabulous Views.

A great deal of thought has been given to the Interior decoration of the Cottage offering a bright, modern yet cosy environment. The two Bedrooms are Downstairs. One Double and One Twin. They are cosy and very Comfortable and Bright. The Modern Bathroom is down the hall.

A large Brass Chandelier lights the way upstairs to a Fabulous Living room with Stunning views of the Vale. A window seat or two awaits, to enjoy a relaxing drink with a good Book. The Dining area is just off the Living room and offers subdued lighting for that special evening meal.

TV with Free Sat., Music Centre and the best bit - a Wood burning stove for that extra bit of warmth on a cold evening.

On the same floor is the modern kitchen which has everything a great cook will need.

The spacious cottage garden - which has won numerous Gardening Awards over the years - has a patio with Table and Chairs and is perfect for alfresco eating or just planning the next adventure. It is easily accessed from the Door leading from the Living room.

A Garden shed is available for Bikes and Bits - to store whilst staying at the Cottage. Areas for drying, and storage of outdoor gear is upstairs on the Stair landing - which has access to the Living room.

The Cottage is situated in a great area for Outdoor Activities such as general Hiking and Mountain Bikes. Grizdale forest is less than 2 miles away.

About 5 minuets walking from the cottage, is Hawkshead village. Nearby are the market towns of Ambleside,Windermere and Keswick are great for shopping and are packed with museums and art galleries, as well as other attractions such as the Lake District National Park Visitors Centre in Windermere and the Beatrix Potter museum at Bowness.

This fabulous cottage offers the perfect setting for exploring The Lake District National Park, famous for its stunning scenery, abundant wildlife and cultural heritage.Grizedale Forrest is about a 10 minuets ride ( 25 mins. walk) from the Cottage. Great for Mountain Bikes and Walking. It is a perfect setting for lots of outdoor activities including hiking, climbing and mountain biking, water sports - including fresh water fishing, sailing, windsurfing and canoeing (on Lake Windermere or Coniston) - or golf, with several excellent courses nearby.

Bring plenty of Maps.

A short distance away are the Langdale and Furness Fells, and we are not far from the Helvellyn range.

Lovely littel home

  • 4 out of 5
Lovely cosy place to relax. The cottage is perfectly situated at the edge of hawkshead with a beautiful view over the valley. It was also a good starting point for trips and walks.
Mostly amazed we have been about the fresh milk delivered to us from the first day onwards. Definitely a place we consider to return to.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely comments. The Hawkshead area is stunning for walks, especially from the Cottage doorstep.
Milk and basic groceries can be ordered from a shopping list situated in the cottage and delivered by the local milkman, directly to the cottage door - first thing in the mornings. This is definitely an added bonus for guests, who love this service whilst staying at the cottage.
We are delighted you enjoyed a relaxing and cosy visit during your stay at the cottage and we look forward to welcoming you back again, to this lovely and historical part of the Lake District.
Kindest regards,
Alexandra

A comfortable cottage in a great location.

  • 5 out of 5
We enjoyed a comfortable stay in this cosy, well equipped cottage. What a good idea to locate the living area upstairs, from which the wonderful view could be well appreciated. The parking area was very useful as was the arrangement for milk to be delivered to the property on the arrival of guests. The cottage was really clean and well maintained and its location, within a 5 minute walk of the village, was ideal, both for the convenience of local shops/pubs and for exploring on foot. Several walks, starting and finishing at Hawkshead can be enjoyed. We would certainly recommend this property to others and look forward to a return visit ourselves.

Owner's Response: Delighted you had a lovely stay. The local milkman who has a comprehensive list of goodies available - a quick phone call and your order is delivered directly to the cottage door for you. Other guests agree with you, this is a huge bonus. Look forward to having you stay with us again.
