With breathtaking views from almost every window, this contemporary country cottage is part of the select Bracken Fell development at Outgate – a small village within easy reach of both Ambleside and Hawkshead. Although modern and stylish in presentation, Honister Cottage retains the charms of Lakeland with traditional stone exterior details and cosy stove within. You’ll find comfortable space for 2 or 3 people. There’s a super dining area within the cottage and both the Outgate Inn and the acclaimed Drunken Duck Inn and Restaurant are within enviably easy reach. If you’re struggling to choose between rural and central, this might just be your ideal choice.
