The property

Perched in the bustling town of Windermere in Cumbria, is this superb, three-bedroom terraced property - Oak Cottage.

Boasting a superb location just moments away from the vast Lake Windermere and a plethora of scenic walks on your doorstep with being in the Lake District National Park, Oak Cottage is a terrific pet-friendly setting for a group of six friends or a family, as well as their canine companion, who want to embark on their next adventure to the Lakes!

Park-up on the driveway with two spaces available, as well as an electric car charging point (additional £50 for use), before being greeted by a neat patio with seating, the ideal spot for savouring a steaming cup of coffee.

Be welcomed into the homely sitting room, where you can fire-up the gas flame effect woodburner and snuggle up with loved ones ready to enjoy a family movie night on the Smart TV.

Make your way to the kitchen/dining area, where the chef of the party will have all they need to prepare delectable meals that can be enjoyed at the six-person dining table.

You'll discover two well-appointed rooms on the first floor, a king-size and a twin, each with a Smart TV and with access to a contemporary shower room, ideal for refreshing rinses after a day of hikes and watersports!

Leading up to the second floor, you will discover a handy utility cupboard with washer/dryer, ideal for keeping your holiday wardrobe fresh.

The final room is a spacious super-king-size with its own en-suite shower room and Smart TV, a fabulous option for those who prefer a little more privacy!

In the morning, treat your loved ones to a hearty breakfast out on the rear patio as you make plans for the days ahead.

If you're looking for a night off from the kitchen, head to the local town of Windermere, where you'll discover a plethora of pubs and restaurants, including The Orrest Head Bar, The Windermere Speakeasy, and The Lamplighter Dining Rooms.

The famous Lake Windermere offers a wide variety of watersports, including sailing, kayaking, and paddleboarding, as well as stunning views of the Langdale Pikes from the viewpoints of Orrest Head and Queen Adelaide's Hill, which can be reached through scenic footpaths.

The Windermere Jetty Museum and the beautiful World of Beatrix Potter Attraction are excellent options for anyone looking to learn more about the area.

Further north, you'll find the interesting 2nd-century Ambleside Roman Fort, the Armitt Library & Museum Center, and the 70-foot Stock Ghyll Force waterfall in the charming town of Ambleside.

Grasmere, the old home of the great poet William Wordsworth, is just a short drive away, and the Grasemere Waterfall Walkways and Rydal Mount & Gardens are also nearby.

For a memorable getaway with loved ones, choose Oak Cottage.
