  • Mr Saunders

    “We absolutely loved staying in this cottage in Dacre.”

    The kitchen was so well equipped, the bathrooms were spacious and spotless and the beds were very, very comfortable. We all loved the walks from the door, the peace of the garden when we came home from our many walks and the wonderful Pub up the road.

We all loved the walks from the door, the peace of the garden when we came home from our many walks and the wonderful Pub up the road. I'm sure that we will come again to Boxtree. Praise indeed as we have been coming to the Lakes and staying in cottages every year for over 30 years, almost always through Lakelovers.

About the property

Dating back to the 18th century, this stunning farmer’s cottage has been beautifully renovated to provide luxury accommodation while retaining its original charm and period features.

With its village setting and being just a stroll away from the shores of Ullswater, this property most certainly has the wow factor.

Entering through the rear door of the cottage, guests will be charmed by the cosy sitting room with feature fireplace, log burning stove and exposed beams.

A choice of deep-cushioned sofas and huge armchairs make this is the ideal spot in which to curl up and relax after a busy day outdoors.

Boxtree’s kitchen is fabulous.

Extremely well-equipped, with shaker style units, natural stone floor and up-to-date appliances, this bright and airy room has everything needed to cook up a fabulous family meal.

The adjoining dining room, with its farmhouse style table and chairs, is prefect for enjoying a lazy breakfast or more formal supper.

Through the kitchen to a wonderful sunroom overlooking the adorable cottage garden, and a useful cloakroom-cum-drying room with separate wc completes the downstairs accommodation. Upstairs the master bedroom features a vaulted ceiling, iron bed and period furniture complimented by an en-suite bathroom with attractive roll top bath.

The equally charming double room comes with modern en-suite shower room.

The cottage garden faces south west and is entirely enclosed, a safe place for dogs and children to play.

There is parking for two cars and a lockable stone outhouse is perfect for storing mountain bikes.

This is also where guests will find the tumble dryer. Boxtree has so many exciting things to offer, with footpaths, cycle routes and lake on the doorstep.

Glenridding and Pooley Bridge are close by, while the A591 runs from Keswick to Grasmere and on to Ambleside.
