About this apartment

It doesn't get any better than this! This Idyllic Lakeland Cottage enjoys a very rural aspect with wonderful panoramic views, and set in 34 acre of cottage garden. This holiday home is wonderfully situated to discover the Lake District. Summerhill Cottage dates back to the 17th-century and has amazing character features around every corner. Standing detached, the property enjoys beamed ceilings, oak wooden floors, low doorways and delightful features that are dotted throughout. A large inglenook fireplace to the main, spacious living room adds an interesting mix of contemporary design, whilst the doors open out onto a patio area offering stunning views of the surrounding area towards the Lakeland Fells.From the doorway you can wonder for miles along local country lanes or well trodden footpaths, mostly leading to a local pub, plan carefully to achieve that! The local area has numerous cycle routes for both mountain and roads bikes. For sightseers beyond the beautiful hills, mountains, forests and lakes, the delightful villages of Ambleside, Hawkshead, Sawrey (Beatrix Potters Home) are all 30 minutes away.The cottage is full of charm and atmosphere, with cosy rooms and comfortable furnishings, and an original cast-iron range graces the farmhouse kitchen, which leads into the entrance/breakfast room.
