Mill Cottage

Hawkshead 4.3 miles. This semi-detached character cottage near Lake Windermere sits in a peaceful position beside Cunsey Mill on the 5,000-acre Graythwaite Estate. This wonderful cottage offers the opportunity for a quiet, restful holiday just a 5-minute stroll from the shores of Lake Windermere, and superb lake views can be enjoyed from the property. There is a cosy sitting room, and a well-equipped kitchen with slate worktops and a dining area. Upstairs, the king-size master bedroom enjoys wonderful lake views, and there is a comfortable twin room along with the family bathroom. Outside is a private fenced garden with a patio area, overlooking the river and offering glimpses of the lake beyond. The Graythwaite Estate makes an ideal base for a holiday in this stunning part of the country. The central courtyard of the estate, around 30 minutes' stroll away, offers an indoor swimming pool, fitness suite, table tennis room and children's play area. The wider grounds of the estate offer thousands of acres of woodland, perfect for walking and wildlife spotting, along with 12 acres of garden, open April to September, and even the chance to enjoy free trout fishing. Guests can enjoy the fantastic facilities on-site, before taking advantage of the wonderful discounts exclusively available, which include reduced Go Ape entry in the stunning Grizedale Forest, along with discount at the Lakeland Hotel and Spa. Day-to-day provisions and sumptuous home-cooked meals can also be delivered straight to your door, so you can truly enjoy a relaxing getaway and take a night or two off from cooking. The rest of the stunning Lake District awaits, so should you decide to leave this idyllic spot, it's easy to enjoy trips on paddle boats or steam railways, days in pretty villages or bustling towns, or simply lose yourself in the majesty of the dramatic Lakes scenery.

Two bedrooms: 1 x king-size double, 1 x twin. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Kitchen/diner. Sitting room with gas fire.
