Enjoying a very rural aspect with wonderful panoramic views, and set in ¾ acre of cottage garden this holiday home is wonderfully situated to discover the Lake District. Summerhill Cottage dates back to the 16th-century and is an idyllic, Lakeland cottage with 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. The cottage is full of charm and atmosphere with cosy rooms and comfortable furnishings, and an original cast-iron range graces the farmhouse-style kitchen, which leads into the entrance/breakfast room. The local area gives access to splendid walks, and one that must be experienced includes wonderful views as Lake Windermere (2 miles) is approached. Alternatively, a 15-minute drive leads into the heart of the bustling towns of both Windermere and Kendal, where many of the local attractions can be enjoyed. Summerhill Cottage makes a superb central base for exploring the Lake District, perfect for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers. Shop and pub 1 mile.
