    “Lovely cottage in perfect location.”

    Comfortable, clean and quiet. Only concern was no bannister on stairs which are quite steep.

Hidden within beautiful woodland within the amazing Lake District National Park, nearly on the doorstep of Lake Windermere, is this gorgeous property, Hunter's Cottage.
