About Lake Cottage

Please note: Saturday start day and a minimum stay of 5 nights.

Lake Cottage is located at the end of a quiet country lane bordering the beautiful Hawes Water Lake in the Silverdale & Arnside Area of Natural Beauty. It is adjacent to the nature reserve and the cottage has access to the lake, with its resident otters, kingfishers and marsh harriers.

Fully refurbished a few years ago the cottage is the owner’s own lakeland retreat and is fully equipped with a well-stocked pantry, books and maps, games and hi-fi, making it a true ‘home from home’ the minute you walk through the door. It is a characterful, stone-built cottage which retains many original features including exposed beams, inglenook fireplace with log-burning stove and range oven and has been thoughtfully furnished and decorated in a style sympathetic to its past.

Accommodation is offered for up to four people, with one double and one twin bedroom, both having long views over the marsh and lake to the woods and hills beyond. The period bathroom is newly fitted, with pine flooring, spacious shower and heated towel radiator. The living room is warm and cosy with antique furniture, rugs and many original artworks whilst the quarry-tiled kitchen is very well equipped with standalone units, dresser and farmhouse table helping retain a homely ambience whilst offering comprehensive cooking and self-catering facilities including coffee-machine, microwave, fridge and large double oven.

Outside is a sunny gravelled courtyard with Weber and picnic table – ideal for summer breakfasts and barbeques! Steps lead to the lawn and a path meanders through the small orchard to the reedbed beyond, where an 80-yard boardwalk takes you through willows and marsh to the reed-fringed lakeside. Guests have the use of a large timber cabin which overlooks the lake with a private jetty, picnic bench and swimming ladder. The spring-fed lake is fringed with lilies in summer and is crystal clear - perfect for swimming and fishing and teems with wildlife.

The cottage is just a mile from Silverdale village with its pubs and shops, and four miles from the larger villages of Arnside and Carnforth. It sits at a gateway to the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Trough of Bowland, giving access to a wide range of outdoor amenities, although with wonderful woodland walks in all directions from the front door there is often little need to venture far.

Accommodation Comprises:

Lakeside Cottage is a 200-year-old former gamekeeper's cottage that has been sympathetically restored using traditional materials and methods, and updated to provide comfortable holiday accommodation all year round. The furnishings have been carefully chosen to suit the age of the property while still being appropriate for modern couples and families.


  • The cottage's ground floor has been opened up to create a lovely living and dining area that makes the most of the available space.
  • Living room with a log burning stove in the original inglenook fireplace, with sofa and armchairs where you can put your feet up at the end of the day.
  • Kitchen with a range cooker and microwave as well as a good variety of cooking utensils, glasses, crockery and cutlery. A scrubbed pine table can be used either for dining or as additional bench space for preparing meals. A separate fridge/freezer is in the adjacent boiler room. Original features include the quarry tiled floor, exposed beams and inglenook fireplace which now houses the range cooker.
  • Stairs lead from the kitchen to the garden room in the lower ground floor. This room opens directly into a sheltered courtyard and is perfect for removing and storing walking boots and outdoor clothing.


  • Master bedroom with a double bed, and views over the garden to the lake beyond.
  • Twin bedroom with lovely views over the garden and lake.
  • Bathroom with traditional sanitary ware, spacious shower and heated towel radiator.
