About Townfoot Cottage

Sitting in a courtyard setting, Townfoot Cottage provides a warm welcome to couples (one or two) and families, and is a dog-friendly retreat presented to a high Four Star Gold standard (sorry but only week or longer bookings accepted - short breaks are not available at any time of year). Offering sophisticated contemporary style with a nod in the direction of its country roots, the cottage has open-plan living with a luxurious kitchen area, plenty of space to dine and comfy seating to relax around the log burning stove at the end of the day.

It is hard to imagine a more picturesque setting for your Lakeland holiday. Wake up in the morning surrounded by the peaks of the fells keeping a watchful eye over the hamlet (stunning when snow-capped in the winter!). Then lace up your walking boots and immerse yourself in the beauty that awaits outside, with some of the area's finest walks to enjoy straight from the front door.

For those who can tear themselves away from the magnificent setting, the many popular tourist hotspots of the Lakes are within easy driving distance. The pretty Cumbrian town of Ambleside is just four miles away with a good choice of shops, pubs and cafes. From here you can catch the Windermere ferry to Bowness and Lakeside, and also visit Stock Ghyll Force (a short walk outside of the town and a stunning waterfall particularly just after it has rained).

Windermere, Hawkshead and Coniston are also within easy reach by car (less than ten miles), and Skelwith Bridge is even closer (you can walk there from Elterwater) and a stunning setting with the Skelwith Force Waterfall walk that is sure to work up an appetite for tea and cake in Chester's fantastic cafe afterwards.

Sorry but short breaks are not available at any time of the year, only weekly or longer bookings
