Hawkshead, Cumbria


Windermere just a short drive from the property is a great place to enjoy browsing the shops and perhaps stocking up on picnic supplies before hiring a boat on the water or hop on board one of the leisure cruises which run up and down Windermere at a relaxing pace. Coniston only a short drive away is known for its rich history and the interesting Ruskin Museum which takes visitors on a journey through the village s past. A little closer to your retreat you can enjoy family attractions or outdoor pursuits at the famous home of Beatrix Potter or at the forest at Grizedale which makes the location entertaining for couples and families alike. This beautifully presented contemporary 1930s property is approached up a private access drive with its own parking. Around to the front door you enter the porch with a bench and place to leave coats and muddy boots. The porch leads into the well-equipped kitchen with electric oven and gas hob microwave dishwasher and fridge/freezer. A washing machine and tumble dryer are found in a separate utility room perfect for outdoor gear after cycling or walking in the Fells. The lounge area has a sofa and chairs a wood burner and a Smart TV perfect for relaxing at any time of the year. Walk through into the stunning sun room with its panoramic views across Esthwaite water. The feature wall length windows make the most of the sunlight whatever the time of year and provides a warm and light space you can recline on the cosy sofa read draw or soak up the views while dining together. The master bedroom has a super-king-size zip-and-link bed (which can be made up as a twin on request) and has an en-suite shower room and WC and the second bedroom is a double.

Outside the property is a large elevated terrace with garden furniture and steps down into a large enclosed garden with panoramic views over Esthwaite Water. There is off-road parking for two cars.
