  • “Lovely cottage, well equipped, very comfortable.”

    The owners were in contact and assisted us with information, lovely couple. The cottage is brilliantly located for walks straight from your door, which is great because you can just forget about the car. This is our second holiday at this cottage and we will definitely return.

The property

A true character Lake District cottage, Greystones is captivating throughout, with three beautiful bedrooms and two stylish bathroom facilities plus a third cloakroom. This charming Lake District cottage offers spacious living with the added benefit of a warming open fire and true picture windows and patio doors, perfect for gazing out over the picturesque views. On the site of a former bobbin mill and proudly standing alongside Force Beck, a soothing river in the secluded hamlet of Force Forge, Greystones is a special find in this simply magical setting. This lovely dwelling is idyllically positioned between Coniston Water and Lake Windermere, just south of the pretty village of Hawkshead and on the edge of Grizedale Forest, blissfully secluded yet only a mile from the village pub, the Eagles Head. This beautiful abode is also fitted with a state-of-the-art kitchen with breakfast bar, all of which is complemented by the delightful riverside garden and patio, perfect for alfresco dining, backed by the constant soothing sounds of the river flowing nearby. Grizedale Forest adjoins this beautiful hamlet, boasting some of the best mountain biking trails in the country, and with secure storage for your bikes at the property, you're all set to embark on a cycling adventure. Be sure to visit the award-winning attraction of Go Ape, a thrilling tree top assault course ideal for adventure junkies, or if that's not your thing, there's a vast selection of walking trails throughout this magnificent part of The Lakes, with scenery that is hard to beat. A private drive leads you to the cottage, with private parking for up to three cars, unload your bags and step into the entrance hall, providing handy space for muddy boots and walking clobber, and make use of the cloakroom to freshen up. The living room is flooded with natural light welcomed in through the glass wall of the patio doors, offering an idyllic place to relax by the open fire. The stunning kitchen has everything you may need for an enjoyable self-catering experience and leading out from the neighbouring dining room is the garden and patio, perfect for dining alfresco or to enjoy a drink in the sunshine. Climbing upstairs you'll find three thoughtfully laid-out bedrooms, a king-size with en-suite shower room, fitted with a luxurious power show, alongside a double and a twin room, each framing a glorious outlook. Servicing the property is the delightful family bathroom, home to a bath and overhead shower, giving guests the choice between an indulgent soak or a quick rinse. Outside, the riverside gardens are a true delight, with two peaceful patio areas complete with furniture, providing a tranquil spot to unwind, with direct access onto the river. The sleepy hamlet is surrounded by a natural playground of stunning landscapes to explore; a great base for walking and outdoor adventure as well as for escaping the everyday rush. To the north, Grizedale Forest is an intriguing network of walking routes, cycle paths and sculpture trails. Lake Windermere lies to the east, and a car-ferry crossing can take you across the lake to explore the lively attractions of Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside. Also close by is the village of Near Sawrey, where Beatrix Potter famously lived and was inspired to write her children's stories; visit the author's home at Hill Top and explore her favourite places of Esthwaite Water and Moss Eccles Tarn. The village of Hawkshead is easily reached to your north; a charming historic village of whitewashed Lakeland cottages, car-free cobbled streets and interesting local shops, perfect for stocking up on last-minute ingredients. If searching for a special escape in the Lakes, you have found it here.
