The property

Latterbarrow Cottage is a two-bedroom property set on the ground floor of a converted barn within a picturesque setting and part of the Bracken Fell development which comprises six converted cottages.

It's ideal for holidaymakers looking to get out and about to enjoy the beauty of this area by walking or cycling. The cottage is the perfect combination of outside character and inside luxury, with excellent views over Outgate hamlet and Latterbarrow Fell.

It has a comfortable lounge/dining area perfect for relaxing in front of the TV after a long day exploring the surrounding countryside.

Guests can also cook something delicious in the well-equipped kitchen.

Whatever takes your fancy, this cottage has everything needed.

The two bedrooms are bright and luxurious and are relaxing havens at the end of a day's travel.

Outside there is a private patio area set within communal gardens and it's a lovely spot to sit and take in the peace and tranquility that this location brings, with classic Lake District stone walls providing the charm of this part of the world.

Just a short walk away is a village inn serving the best of the real ales that the area has to offer as well as delicious home-cooked food.

There are walking routes accessible right from the door of the cottage, with Tarn Hows, Latterbarrow and Blelham Hows all easily accessible.

It's just a mile to the pretty town of Hawkshead, with its pubs and unique shops as well as the inspiration for Beatrix Potter's books - Hill Top.

Also within five miles is the delightful area of Langdale, while Ambleside, on the edge of Lake Windermere is just a ten minute drive away, offering a range of amenities and activities.

This beautifully converted cottage offers luxurious accommodation in peaceful and stunning countryside, while its proximity to so many local highlights makes it the perfect year-round home away from home.

    “Fantastic Cottage with all amenities close by”

    Great location 10 minutes from Ambleside and just a short walk to the local pub in Outgate (500 yards)

    Great location 10 minutes from Ambleside and just a short walk to the local pub in Outgate (500 yards) The cottage is modern and comfortable with all facilities necessary for a comfortable stay. We had 3 nights and managed some great walks every day without having to travel miles in fact the car never moved from arrival to departure.

About the location


Ambleside 4 miles; Kendal 24 miles.

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. Visitors can wander the wealth of tiny alleyways, thoroughfares, archways and courtyards between the whitewashed 17th century houses. There are many pleasant inns, teashops, guest houses and gift shops in the village, as well as the Beatrix Potter Gallery, which houses an annually changing exhibition of the famous author’s illustrations and stories. The other famous Hawkshead enthusiast, William Wordsworth, attended the Old Grammar School in 1779-87, which still stands today, and you can visit the building where the Lakeland poet developed his love of the form, and even see the desk into which he scratched his name as a small boy! Newby Bridge is ten miles away and offers attractions such as the Aquarium of the Lakes and Windermere Lake Cruises, sailing daily between Ambleside, Bowness and Lakeside. With stunning scenery and numerous attractions within easy touring distance, Hawkshead is in an ideal location at any time of the year.
