The property

Perched in the peaceful hamlet of Beanthwaite near Ulverston in Cumbria, is this charming sem-detached cottage, The Old Peat Cottage.

Boasting a fantastic location on the edges of the Lake District National Park, with easy access to Lake Windermere and Coniston Water, The Old Peat Cottage makes for a wonderful dwelling for a couple looking to embark on their next adventure to the Lake District.

Make use of your private roadside parking space, before being greeted by a delightful front patio with bench, where you can look forward to savouring your morning coffee as you watch the world go by.

Step into the open-plan living space, where you can look forward to rustling up culinary delights for your guests in the well-equipped kitchen, with the help of the electric oven, ceremic hob, microwave, along with a handy washer/dryer for keeping your holiday wardrobe fresh!

Settle down at the intimate dining table for two to tuck-in to a delicious meal, as you pop open a bottle of fizz and toast to a memorable getaway.

After a hearty meal, retire to the plush sofa where you can snuggle up in the warmth of the log effect fire and select the evening’s entertainment, courtesy of the Smart TV.

Completing the ground-floor is a well-appointed shower room, where you can indulge in a refreshing rinse after a day of exploring.

Make your way up to the first floor, where you can catch your rest in the beautifully-decorated double bedroom, with plenty of storage and served by a cloakroom.

Explore your local surroundings with a trip into the bustling town of Ulverston, home to the Laurel and Hardy Museum, Stan Laurel’s Birthplace and the excellent Ulverston Golf Club where you can test your clubs out with fantastic views looking out towards Morecambe Bay.

The town also offers a good selection of pubs and restaurants, where you can treat your loved ones to an evening of sampling the local delights, and yourself to a night off from the kitchen!

Venture into the Lake District National Park, where you will find the Coniston Water, well-known for its idyllic setting offering a wealth of watersports opportunities, including kayaking and canoeing, along with the National Trust Steam Yacht Gondola for those who prefer to sit back and relax as they take in the scenic views.

For those who can’t get enough of the outdoors, head to Lake Windermere, where you can take to the waters of the famous lake by boat or paddleboarding, explore the exhibits of The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction and the Windermere Jetty Museum or take in the expansive views which stretch over to the Langfeld Pikes from Queen Adelaides Hill and Orrest Head.

Just a little further is Ambleside, where you and your loved one can explore the wonders of the 2nd-century Ambleside Roman Fort, learn more about the local area at the Armritt Library & Museum Centre, or hike up the picturesque 70-ft waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force.

Treat your loved one to a stay at The Old Peat Cottage for a memorable getaway to the Lakes.
