The property

An attractive terraced Lakeland cottage nestling on a hillside above the tiny village of Backbarrow, just a stone's throw from the southern tip of Lake Windermere.

With breathtaking views of the surrounding fells and the steam trains of the Furness Railway meandering through the valley, this is an ideal place to relax and unwind.

Well-equipped and thoughtfully presented, Whiteholme Cottage boasts a beautiful garden with a summerhouse and a delightful living room with multi-fuel stove.

Within this area of the Lake District you can enjoy fishing, horse riding, a gentle stroll along the River Leven, walk the famous 'Wainwright' fells and visit local attractions, such as Bigland Hall and Cartmel village, along with relaxing with a meal in one of the tempting restaurants.

If you yearn for a traditional Lakeland retreat with fabulous views, then look no further!

About the location

BACKBARROW

Newby Bridge 1 mile; Bowness-on-Windermere 10 miles.

The small village of Backbarrow sits by the banks of the River Leven and the southern tip of Lake Windermere. The famous Haverthwaite Steam Railway runs close by the village between Haverthwaite and Lakeside. Enjoy magnificent views across Windermere and the surrounding fells, or visit the Aquarium of the Lakes, where the naturally themed habitats bring the history of the Lakes vividly to life. Bowness-on-Windermere provides a lovely day out, and the picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Set amidst the charm of the Lake District, close to the fringe of Windermere, this attractive village makes an inspiring choice from which to forage further into a magical heartland of silver lakes, lofty towering peaks and lonely gorse clad moors.
