Only 25 minutes from the M6 and within easy reach of both Bowness and Windermere (and a range of award winning restaurants and country pubs), Juniper Cottage offers contemporary standards of comfort in a 1920’s Lakeland character property, in a truly enviable location, with breath-taking views across meadows and woods to the Fells, beyond. It is an ideal setting for a totally relaxing holiday,
Juniper Cottage sits on just short of an acre of mature grounds, with lawns, shrubs, wild flowers and its own small wood, all bounded by estate fencing and a dry-stone wall.
There are paved terraces to South and West offering alfresco dining for 6, and two benches from which to capture the last rays of the evening sun. It is a short walk from Windermere Golf Club (or an even quicker drive!).
Country walks begin at the front door, with two garden gates opening directly onto the Great Field, and a branch of the Dales Way. (The lane connecting the property to the Crook road is also part of the Dales Way).
Accommodation in detail
Pass through the gateway and down the drive and Juniper Cottage is revealed standing in its own woodland garden with stunning pastoral views. The front door from the porch opens to the inner hallway. The sitting room is situated on the south west corner of the cottage and the beautiful picture windows offer wide views across the meadows to the mountains beyond that range from the Old Man of Coniston through Crinkle Crags to the Langdale Pikes. With comfortable sofas and large screen TV, this is the ideal place to relax at any time of day and of course is the ideal place to catch glimpses of the wildlife that inhabit the area including the wild fallow deer that can often be found grazing both in the garden and in the fields in front of the cottage. French door lead from the sitting room to a south facing terrace making it the ideal spot to relax on a summer's evening.
The family dining room is just the place to socialise over dinner or celebrate special occasions with family and friends and the adjacent kitchen, again with the most beautiful views, is well appointed and well equipped and includes a electric range cooker, with 5 ring electric hob and two ovens, a fridge, freezer, wine cooler, breakfast bar and dishwasher.
Juniper Cottage is presented with a choice of four bedrooms. The master bedroom offers a comfortable king size bed, lovely views and a smart en-suite shower room with walk-in shower, basin and WC. The second bedroom again shares the views and is furnished with fitted wardrobes and a double bed. The final two bedrooms are comfortable single rooms. The bedrooms are complemented by a well appointed family bathroom, with a full size bath (with shower over), basin and WC. On the ground floor there is a large wet room with basin and WC.
The property is surrounded by woodland gardens that offers privacy, space and great views. There is parking for up to three cars on the driveway.
