The property

Allithwaite 1.2 miles.

A delightful barn conversion, set in pretty countryside, within reach of the small village of Allithwaite in the heart of the Lake District Peninsula.

This lovely cottage is also close to the village of Cartmel and the elegant coastal town of Grange-over-Sands.

This comfortable Allithwaite cottage is full of character and charm, with a stunning sitting room with feature wall and floor-to-ceiling windows, leading into a conservatory.

On the first floor at this Allithwaite cottage is a large, light king-size double bedroom, as well as a modern shower room, and a mezzanine sitting area, which is situated between the bedroom and shower room.

This cosy Allithwaite cottage is an ideal base for exploring the south lakes, with easy access to Lake Windermere at Lakeside, just 15 minutes' drive away, where you can embark on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway to travel up to the Aquarium of the Lakes and even catch the Windermere Steamer and continue on to the bustling towns of Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside.

The ancient priory village of Cartmel is one mile away and has some lovely shops and cafes, including the Cartmel Village Shop, home to the delicious sticky toffee pudding, and Allithwaite itself offers a general store and a pub serving food.

This wonderful Allithwaite cottage is a great base at any time of the year.
