Dating back to 1640, this romantic Lake District cottage is a dream inside and out, with a picture postcard white exterior, deep-silled cottage windows, open fire and old oak beams.This chocolate box cottage is an ideal place to relax and unwind and is something really special for couples.
The owners have completed a sympathetic refurbishment to provide a modern twist to an otherwise traditional Lakeland forester's cottage with features such as broadband.
Adding to the ambience, delightful furnished patios provide the perfect place to sip coffee in the sun all day long. Bowness village is only a few miles away (just follow the lakeside road north past "Millionaires' Row") and for a special treat visit one of our favourite Lake District country pubs, the Mason's Arms. It's only a short drive away at Bowland Bridge.

For shopping, dining and evenings out, Bowness is your first call.
