Very Spacious, Clean and Comfortable Cottage within a very short distance to Hawkshead and Ambleside. We were truly blessed with the weather and couldn't of wished for anything more from a holiday in The Lakes. Food in the nearby Outgate Inn is fab and also check out the Kings Arms in Hawkshead. For those who like a hearty breakfast before hitting the hills I would recommend purchasing some first class bacon and free range eggs from the local dairy farmer who visits the property each day. Just leave a note on the doorstep and they will leave the goodies in a box and settle the bill with you at the end of the week. The cheese is delicious too and all reasonably priced. There are walks on your doorstep and just a short car journey will open up further adventures. Couldnt recommend enough.
