The property

Toad Mire is a beautiful cottage situated 1.5 miles from the small village of Backbarrow, a wonderful retreat with an open-plan living area, extensive views from the sitting room with its glass windows and patio across the lake.

Well-suited for families or friends to come together, this retreat is designed to a standard of luxury, beginning with a lounge which hosts sumptuous leather sofas, and a woodburning stove to warm those cooler evenings.

White-washed walls, and spotlights in the ceiling, surround a dining table situated by the window; a fantastic outlook over the lake and surrounding woodland.

The glamorous floor to ceiling windows continue round to the kitchen, which is spaciously arranged, with fabulous wood effect units, and a small breakfast area, perfect for a warm cup of tea throughout the afternoon.

There are three beautiful bedrooms included, each wrapped in more enticing views, which you can wake up to every day that goes by, with an interior matching that of a hotel quality.

Exceptional extras include luxury en-suites, a hot tub, outdoor furniture, sun loungers and a barbecue.

Surrounded by woodland, you will look forward to opening up the sliding doors, and enjoying everything Toad Mire has to offer.

Beyond this, 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 is certainly worth a visit.

The cottage is situated 3 miles from the prehistoric village of Cartmel, described as a thimble full of Diamonds, perfectly sited for attending Cartmel Races.

Set amidst the charm of the Lake District, close to the fringe of Windermere, this village makes an inspiring choice from which to adventure further into a magical heartland of silver lakes.

A getaway not to be missed.

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.
