A delightful character barn conversion in the peaceful village of Watermillock, which is elevated above Ullswater and close to Pooley Bridge in the Northern Lake District.
This well-presented cosy cottage has an open plan living area with an open fire, whilst the bedrooms have original rustic walls tastefully combined with contemporary elements of interior décor.
The main bedroom boasts a comfortable four poster bed, whilst the family room with its three singles is ideal for the children to spend some together.
Outside this lovely cottage there is a sheltered seating area with picnic table and views of the Mell Fell and surrounding woodland.
If you are enjoying an evening drink or a morning coffee, whilst perhaps planning the day’s activities, you may well share this space with a nosey pheasant or two.
A few yards stroll along the peaceful lane from this cottage, you are rewarded with a view of the lake and the surrounding fells which is a glorious sight.
If you are feeling active you can walk from the door to the famous Lake District Air Force, a spectacular tumbling waterfall set in ancient woodland and glades, with beautiful surrounding walks.
Ullswater Lake offers many water based activities from kayaking, sailing and canoeing to fishing for brown trout.
At Pooley Bridge you will be spoilt for choice for refreshments as the bustling village has an array of cafes, pubs and restaurants.
The whole area is also popular for walking and cycling and for those seeking a hiking challenge Hellvellyn via Striding Edge can be undertaken with a guided tour from Glenridding; a walk not for the faint hearted as it reaches a height of 3,116ft.
The picturesque towns of Ambleside and Windermere can be easily reached with a stunning scenic drive over the Kirkstone Pass, and Keswick is a little further to the west.
This holiday cottage is in an ideal location for families, groups or couples to relax and explore the Northern Lakes all year round.
