The property

This Rural location is set in the foothills of beautiful Lakeland mountains, near the National Trust's Tarn Hows and in peaceful countryside, Tilberthwaite Farm Cottage is the prime location for exploring the lake district. This cosy getaway welcomes a family holiday or a lovely break for a group of friends looking to explore all the area has to offer. Head straight into the sitting room and get toasty by the fire on a cold winter's night, later moving across to the dining area for a hearty meal cooked up in the kitchen. Climb the stairs, and from the window on the landing you can see right across luscious green farmland over to Wetherlam, the most northerly of the Coniston Fells. You have a master bedroom occupying a king-size double bed and lovely glimpses over the farmyard and the valley, the perfect scene to wake up to each morning when you draw open the curtains. Next, the twin room is ideal for those travelling with kids and the family bathroom offers a deep-soaking bathtub with a shower over. To the rear of the property there is a seating area perfect to sit with a drink watching the traditional rare breed Hardwick sheep on the lake district fells while you ooze in the natural ambiance all around you. Make the most of the glorious scenery and explore the area on foot or by bike, there are some fabulous routes to take right on the doorstep such as the famous Hodge Close and Cathedral Quarry where you can stop off for a drink at the Three Shires Pub in Little Langdale. Tarn Hows is a lovely circular walk to be taken at whatever pace you fancy, with ever-changing views season-to-season and spots for picnicking with your family and friends. Coniston is a charming village close by with traditional pubs and a few handy shops, dominated by The Old Man of Coniston, which rises dramatically behind stone-built houses. It beckons walkers and climbers, as well as those looking to get out on Coniston Water, one of the most beautiful areas of the Lake District. You are in a wonderful location for touring the ancient Grizedale Forest, Lake Windermere and the delightful town of Ambleside, a superb getaway not to be missed!
