    “Lovely cottage in a beautiful tranquil setting a short walk from Windermere”

    - Mr Hercock, July 2020

The property

This delightful cottage is beautifully situated in a lovely peaceful woodland setting. Hodge How Cottage is one of a pair of early 20th century cottages reached down a long lane on a private fifteen acre woodland estate. The cottage offers a high standard of comfort and facilities in any season. The natural undisturbed gardens are visited by a lovely selection of birds, deer, squirrels, foxes, rabbits and badgers - quiet watchers will be well rewarded. The property is ideally located for either a relaxing or a touring holiday and there are lovely walks from the door to Orrest Head, Troutbeck or to Miller Ground and a good pub at Troutbeck Bridge about ten minutes walk away. It is hard to imagine that you could be in such a quiet rural setting and yet be so handy for all amenities. Accommodation: Front door into entrance hallway where there is room to hang your outdoor clothes. The delightful cosy sitting room has feature beams and fireplace with a multi-fuel burning stove (TV with Freeview, DVD, CD/radio). A door leads through to the kitchen which in turn gives access to the dining room - this is a delightful addition to the house with its floor to ceiling windows, interesting roof lines and doors to the courtyard garden. Separate laundry/boiler room with drying rack. The cottage has three bedrooms - a very stylish and comfortable double room (king-size bed) on the ground floor has its own nicely proportioned and fully tiled en-suite (shower, wc and hand basin) and dressing area. Stairs from the sitting room lead to the two further bedrooms - one with a king-size double and the other with twin beds. Each of the bedrooms have a TV. Quality bathroom has free-standing cast iron bath, separate shower, basin and wc. Furnishings and fittings are stylish with a mixture of classic neutrals, warm colours and natural woods. The property has an air of quality and a most welcoming holiday feel. Main rooms have fitted carpets whilst kitchen and dining room are of dressed sandstone. Outside: There is ample parking for several cars and storage for bikes etc. The courtyard garden outside the dining room features a well and has garden table and chairs - ideal for barbecues. Further garden areas are kept natural with mature trees and many rhododendrons. There is an area of woodland to the rear of the property extending to 1 acre and to the front of the cottage a small natural stream follows a winding course beneath the trees. Pub and local shopping in Windermere two thirds of a mile.
