Arndale Cottage - Crosthwaite, Nr Bowness-on-Windermere, Cumbria, The Lake District, England - Sleeps 6

Arndale Cottage

Nestling in a tranquil position in the picturesque Winster Valley, this gorgeous detached three bedroom Five Star holiday cottage sits within an acre and a half of gardens in the heart of the Lake District National Park just four miles from Windermere. Offering the perfect blend of style and classic charm, Arndale Cottage sleeps up to six guests in three bedrooms and is ideal for families and friends who want to enjoy a taste of country life and explore the areas many attractions.

In an oasis of calm, Arndale Cottage is presented to an exceptionally high standard and enjoys plenty of inside and outside living space with two sitting rooms (one with log burner and the other with open fire!), a farm-house style kitchen with dining table and Aga, sun room leading out to the terrace for alfresco dining and one and a half acres of enclosed garden. It also has super-fast fibre WiFi internet, Ultra HD televisions and Netflix (including kids packages) for entertainment.

Aptly named after the stream (Arndale Beck) which meanders its way along the garden boundary, the surrounding scenery is simply stunning and a haven for wildlife with hares, red deer, owls and herons making regular visits, as well as buzzards soaring up above. The cottage is not disturbed by traffic noise as it sits on a quiet single road track, yet it is only four miles from bustling Windermere and nine miles (less than twenty minutes by cab) from the nearest train station at Oxenholme (connecting with London and Glasgow via the West Coast line).

Windermere is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Lake District offering a good choice of shops, attractions, water sports and eateries. There are also two very good pubs within a two mile walk serving locally sourced good food and ales. For wildlife enthusiasts, the Barkbooth Nature reserve is just a five minute walk from the cottage where you will see a vast array of flora and fauna including rare species of dragon and butterflies.

Spend your days sitting on the terrace soaking up the peace and tranquility that surrounds or hop on your bike (or lace up your walking boots) and discover the beauty of the area up close. Whether you choose to relax, be active or explore, Arndale Cottage offers all the right ingredients for a memorable holiday in the Lake District.
