The property

This semi-detached character cottage is attached to the owner’s home, located in the Cumbrian village of Ings. Set within a beautiful garden by a stream and home to a children’s treehouse, this property offers ideal accommodation for a small family holiday somewhere central to Windermere. The ground floor offers a sitting room full of pleasures to keep the family happy, with a host of toys, books and games available for use in a cosy room with an inglenook fireplace.

With the children occupied, the well-equipped kitchen offers all necessary amenities to keep them well fed, including a feature range oven.

Upstairs, relax in your double bedroom with king-size bed, while the kids chatter away in the triple room that houses three single beds. Outside, a beautiful garden allows you to relax while the children play, with patio furniture from where you can take in the gentle stream running through the garden and the views beyond, all the while keeping an eye on the children as they enjoy the delights of a fantastic private treehouse.

The property has a private driveway with parking for two cars. The garden will make you feel like you have your own countryside, but if you want to wander without the car, the village houses a pub for some local ales and quality food. It doesn’t take long to reach the delights of the shores of Windermere.

Barely two miles to the east of Ings, the world of activities on offer includes water sports for the active, or gentle cruises on the lake for a quieter outing.

If the weather turns, perhaps take the ten minute journey to Bowness and immerse the children in the world of the Beatrix Potter exhibition. Little Ghyll Cottage offers a wonderful stay in a cosy cottage with a beautiful garden, making it ideal for a family holiday within the Windermere area of the Lake District.
