Arrival day: Saturday | Sleeps: 4
This delightful Lakeland character cottage is part of a row in the hamlet of Crook, surrounded by scenic strolls and country pub lunches, yet only a few miles from Bowness village and the shores of Lake Windermere. Traditional features such as original fireplace and cosy woodburning stove give warmth and magic to a stylish and contemporary interior, which provides a pleasant base for up to 4 people. The rural yet convenient location is sublime for a relaxed retreat; walks from your door, 'pay as you play' golf nearby and a fabulous Lakeland local only 100 yards away. Definitely a home from home to return to!
