Go off-grid and escape busy lifestyles at this bijou bolthole in the Lake District National Park. Walk wildlife trails, and explore the highlights of this World Heritage Site.

This romantic hideaway is part of a complex of 17th-century farm properties on National Trust farmland, and has been refurbished as a cosy holiday home, attached to the original farmhouse. It offers spectacular countryside views, less than half a mile from Buttermere village and lake - look out for The Lone Tree, a much-photographed birch by the shore. Meet Herdwick and Cheviot sheep, Dexter cattle and Lancashire Heeler dogs at work on the farm as you venture out on fell hikes over Grasmoor (2.5 miles), and Red Pike (17.5 miles). Follow woodland bluebell trails through Buttermere and Crummock Water (1 mile). Take time out in the Georgian market town of Cockermouth (10.5 miles) which has shops, eateries and heritage attractions.

On arrival, enter the side door of this charming country cottage and step into the porch where there’s an electric heater and storage space for coats and boots. Walk into the hall where there’s a family bathroom to the left side with a shower over the bath, and WC. After a day out exploring the Lake District World Heritage Site, you’ll appreciate the light and airy open-plan kitchen, living, and dining area. Make delicious meals in the well-equipped kitchen which features. Make home-cooked meals together in the well-equipped kitchen which includes an oven, fridge/freezer, coffee maker, and convenient dishwasher, plus ample storage space. Feast in the dining area and enjoy the garden views. After dinner, snuggle up on the sofa for two by the warmth of the pebble effect electric fire and enjoy fell and lake views through the bright windows; in the evening enjoy film nights on the TV with Freesat, or read a favourite novel. The spacious king-size bedroom has beautiful bedside tables and double wardrobes with ample storage space for your luggage and market town gift shopping.

Outside, you’ll find a private enclosed lawned garden with a garden bench and gravelled area, plus a stone BBQ space for al fresco dining under the stars. Off-road parking is available for one car (park on the gravelled area in the garden or in front of the garden gate). There’s a farm cafe on site with Wi-Fi, and there’s a pub and shop within 0.5 miles.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Eastbourne is a bustling seaside resort on the south coast of England. It has been a popular British holiday destination since Victorian times. The town’s attractive pier and promenade is still a major draw for visitors in search of a traditional seaside experience – you can enjoy a long, level stroll along the sea front whilst enjoying an ice cream or some fish and chips. The pebble beach is a good place to park a deckchair and take in the sun, or paddle in the sea. Great for family breaks and as a romantic getaway, the town has much to offer all visitors. The South Downs Way starts in town and extends 100 miles eastwards to Winchester – one of the first stops on the National Trail are the imposing chalk cliffs of the iconic Beachy Head, a few miles to the east of town. Eastbourne is a big hit with train enthusiasts as it’s home to the Spa Valley Railway and the Miniature Steam Railway. Historians may like Redoubt Fort and The Observatory Science Museum (in nearby Herstmonceux). For all-weather attractions for children why not investigate Fort Fun or the indoor Motcombe Swimming Pool? Further afield, and within a one-hour drive to the west is Brighton, with its own pier, wonderful array of shops and eateries. To the west is Bexhill-on-Sea with its impressive art gallery, the De La Warr Pavillion, and long seafront. Just beyond is the old fishing town of Hastings with its new award-winning designer pier, ancient castle and fishing shanty town.
