    “This was our first time at this particular cottage and we would stay again without hesitation.”

    It is situated close to Hawkshead and the local pub, the Outgate Inn is just a 2 minute walk from the doorstep.

    It is situated close to Hawkshead and the local pub, the Outgate Inn is just a 2 minute walk from the doorstep. We had some amazing walks straight from the cottage and the views overlooking the fields are amazing. Lovely and quiet, plenty of parking and allowed us to fully relax. The log burning stove was a bonus but the central heating system already kept the cottage nice and warm. Kitchen, bathroom and other areas all well appointed. Would highly recommend.

The property

Ideal for a cosy and romantic break in the north Lake District, Grizedale Cottage is one of a cluster of cottages located on picturesque Bracken Fell with its spellbinding views.

Ideal for a couple, the all ground floor accommodation will also suit those with reduced mobility.

Grizedale Cottage can be rented alongside Latterbarrow Cottage, sleeping 2, and is a perfect base for exploring this beautiful part of the world at any time of year.

Enter the dining/living room of the cottage, and you'll immediately enjoy a cosy and comfortable atmosphere with a contemporary twist.

There's a comfy sofa to curl up on in front of the wood burner, and fantastic views from the large picture window.

The modern fitted kitchen is fully equipped with a breakfast bar and there's a bathroom with bathtub, overhead shower, washbasin and WC.

The spacious double bedroom also enjoys those fabulous views and has an en-suite washbasin and WC.

At the front of Grizedale Cottage there's a terrace ideal for raking in those beautiful views across the fells, and perfect for a relaxing drink or dining al fresco.

You'll also enjoy shared use of the large and lovely communal gardens, laid to lawn with lovely mature trees making this a perfect spot to relax and get away from it all.

There's also off road parking for your car.

The cottage is located in the lovely rural hamlet of Outgate with its countryside inn serving delicious food and ales.

Take a stroll across the fields and you're in beautiful Hawkshead where Beatrix Potter lived and wrote at Hill Top.

Among the whitewashed houses, shops and bars you'll also find the renowned Drunken Duck with its award-winning restaurant.

A short drive takes you to Ambleside and Lake Windermere at the very heart of the Lake District, where you can take a lake cruise on one of the Windermere steamers to enjoy the sights and sounds of Swallows and Amazons country.

Whether you love quirky and independent shopping, great craft beers, fine dining or walking and cycling in some of the most beautiful and unspoiled countryside in the UK, the Lake District has something to delight everyone.

If you want to surround yourself with the peace and tranquillity of the fells, or simply enjoy everything Lakeland has to offer, Grizedale Cottage is the perfect place to relax and spend quality time with your partner, whatever the time of year.

About the location


Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
