Spacious property located in the village of Hawkshead, in a popular area of the Lake District, within easy reach of both Lake Windermere and Coniston Water.

Sleeping 12 across seven bedrooms, this detached former country house and 17th-century cottage provides comfortable spacious living for extended families or friends who want to gather together in a beautiful setting with everything in easy reach of the doorstep. There's no tripping over each other here as there's lots of space, cosy corners and seven bathrooms so everyone can relax and make the most of the trip together while having privacy too.

Step up to the entrance and admire the handsome facade of this historic home which offers ample off-road parking for six cars and practical touches throughout the home. A hallway leads into traditional country-style interiors where the elegant lounge boasts an open fire, bay window, stylish seating and a separate corner for casual TV time. The spacious dining room lies at the heart of the home with a long table for a dozen guests, a period Welsh dresser, and a piano to play for an aspiring Liberace. There's a smaller lounge off the dining room where guests can also unwind with a good book or a favourite tipple after dinner. For chefs, the kitchen is a dream, fully-equipped with every appliance and gadget you could need to create memorable family feasts. And towards the garden side, there's a handy boot room packed with storage for the muddiest of wellies, a utility room for laundry hour, and a handy shower room and WC. For al fresco afternoons, fire up the BBQ on the garden patio and enjoy long leisurely lunches. As night falls, amble upstairs for the cosiest of slumbers - there are four double bedrooms (three are en-suite), one twin bedroom en-suite, and two single bedrooms, plus two separate family bathrooms.

A perfect location and a lovely house for our extended family holiday. It was ideal as we had 2 babies and a toddler with us. The kitchen was extremely well equipped. Great that we could all park. The only suggestion is that the showers need upgrading and the decor could do with refreshing in places.

Rented this property Friday to Monday for 9 adults. The location is great in central lakes, and only 2 minutes the the village centre with shops, pubs and restaurants. Very well equipped, and warm. Lots of living space but the main lounge only accommodates 9 people so larger groups won't fit in. Negatives were two of the showers would only work if Read moreno other shower was being used and tiny ensuites could really do with updating.
