This property enjoys a stunning location close to the picturesque Tarn Hows, just one mile from the popular village of Hawkshead, known for its connections to Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth. The larger town of Ambleside is just over four miles away and offers a range of shops, eateries and is the starting point for a number enjoyable pleasure cruises on Lake Windermere, including trips to Bowness.
