This beautiful, semi-detached converted coach house is situated on the road connecting Ambleside and Hawkshead, on the renowned Pullwood Bay Estate, making it a truly central location for exploring the Lake District’s many attractions.
The estate sits in 50 acres and is abundant in woodland pathways, beautiful scenery and a cycle track that cuts through the estate and circles Lake Windermere.
The cottage is cosy and stylish, seamlessly combining modern amenities with traditional Cumbrian character.
Stairs lead up to two bedrooms and a small, compact bathroom; one bedroom hosts a double bed and the second has two single beds, making the cottage a wonderful choice for families, couples or friends.
Though the bathroom is compact, the size is compensated for by a fully opening Velux window, a lovely feature which opens fully and catches the sun in the mornings.
The living space on the ground floor is open and sociable.
A striking feature slate wall separates the well-equipped kitchen from the rest of the room, and the sitting area is bright and pretty with a dining table and a woodburner-style electric stove.
The front of the cottage overlooks fields, and at the back is a shared gravel courtyard with a picnic table in a private corner, a charming spot to dine in the summer.
A scenic 10-minute walk leads through the private estate to the shores of Lake Windermere, where you can find a beach and a private jetty reaching out into the water.
This stunning, secluded location offers spectacular views across the lake, and is a peaceful spot for reading, swimming, having a picnic, or simply enjoying the magnificent view.
If you are planning on taking your own boats or canoes away with you, you can drive down to the visitor’s car park by the lake and take them out onto the water from there.
The nearest shops can be found in Ambleside, but the popular Drunken Duck Inn is only around half a mile away up the hill.
Venture out of the estate to Wray Castle for the day, which has a huge, largely-undiscovered gravel beach of its own, and was Beatrix Potter’s first Lakeland holiday home at the age of 16.
Coniston inspired the countryside of Arthur Ransome's 'Swallows and Amazons', and is a short drive over the hill, past the National Trust beauty spot of Tarn Hows.
At Coniston, you can also visit the former home of John Ruskin, or sail on the lake in a Steam Yacht Gondola.
The area carries many literary connections and it’s beauty and magical landscapes still inspire memorable holidays for all; whether it be a fun-filled break on Lake Windermere, or a relaxing walking holiday through this breathtaking region.
