The property

Located in the tranquil hamlet of Lakeside, this superb end-terrace slate cottage sits in a large garden plot which backs onto woodland and countryside, close to the tip of Lake Windermere and Newby Bridge in the Lake District.

Beautifully-presented throughout, with immaculate attention to detail, this cottage is ideally suited to friends and family wishing to enjoy time together in one of the most stunning areas of the Lake District.

Set over two floors, the main house has three bedrooms and bathrooms and a spacious open plan sitting room which has a woodburner housed in front of a slate wall.

There is a stunning quality kitchen with AGA, butcher’s sink, granite surfaces, marble floor and let’s not forget the wine chiller to keep your favourite tipple chilled to enjoy inside or out.

Also enjoy the delightful feature of the open wall contemporary window from the kitchen to the sitting room, allowing a view to the conservatory sitting area with French doors to the garden and beyond.

Open the French doors on to the wrap-around patio and enjoy the silence broken only by birdsong or step down into the garden and sit and listen to the relaxing sound of the babbling stream.

Across the garden is the studio perfect for extended family, friends or perhaps teenagers.

This accommodation provides an open plan kitchen and sitting room with TV, shower room and bedroom with views over the garden.

Just 10 minutes' walk away from this lovely property is the tip of Lake Windermere with the Lakeside Hotel with spa and restaurant, and where you can embark onto Lakeland cruises to Ambleside and Bowness.

Alternatively, take a trip on the Haverthwaite steam train and step back in time or visit the Lakeland Aquarium.

Just 15 minutes' away is Cartmel which houses race meetings during the summer months and is the smallest racecourse in the UK.

Cartmel is also the home to sticky toffee pudding and the ancient 12th century priory, and is also a gastro centre with the infamous L’Enclume restaurant.

Cyclists are also spoilt as close by is the Grizedale Forest with numerous bike tracks to suit all standards, as well as Go Ape.

Walking is also on your doorstep through woods to bore trees and High Dam and call in to Bobbin Mill, which is a fascinating mill and discover why your cottage has its name.

Finally at the end of the day, return to this glorious retreat to enjoy the peace of the garden or inside in front of the woodburner.

This is a special cottage in a delightful location, ideal for exploration and enjoyment all year round.

About the location


Newby Bridge 1.2 miles; Bowness-on-Windermere 8.7 miles.

Set on the southern shores of Lake Windermere, the small, sleepy hamlet of Lakeside offers a peaceful getaway location, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the Lake District’s popular attractions, but still within easy reach of them. Whether you decide to discover the area in the car, by foot, bike, boat or steam, there’s plenty to see nearby to keep the whole family content. The ferry dock offers the chance to travel by boat to Waterhead or Bowness, or take a shorter trip to the National Trust’s Fell Foot Park, across the water, which offers pretty grounds set alongside the very tip of the lake, providing plenty of places for picnics, paddling, games and gentle strolls on sunny afternoons. Situated alongside the Lakeside Station is the long-standing Lakeside and Haverwaithe Railway, home to Britain’s oldest standard gauge steam engine, on which you can travel back in time along this well-loved Heritage line, and where little ones will delight in meeting Thomas and his friends. Visit the Lakes Aquarium to uncover the often-secretive world of life below water, where you’ll chance upon hundreds of captivating creatures that feature in the surrounding rivers, lakes and sea. There are wonderful, well-signed walks to be enjoyed in the immediate area, including the 5-mile route to Finsthwaite’s High Dam, which trails from Lakeside through pleasant woodlands and meadows. Lakeside offers an exclusive holiday location with all of the Lake District’s delights at your fingertips.
