If you're looking for that dream romantic holiday cottage in the Lake District, you'll search long and hard to find a more perfect place than Gingerbread Cottage. Full of character, luxuriously presented and boasting an enviable location; tucked down a peaceful lane just minutes from quaint cobbled streets, charming tea rooms and cosy country pubs in Hawkshead village. Dating back to 1810, Gingerbread Cottage displays unmistakable traditional character - from the whitewashed exterior adorned with flowers, to the hearty stone fireplace with woodburning stove set on stunning wood floors. Decadent fabrics and sumptuous furnishings complete the picture, well worthy of a special occasion or honeymoon in the Lake District. Accommodation in detail A pretty latticed porch leads into the relaxed living space, thoughtfully presented with soft lighting, elegant wood floor, traditional window seat and woodburning stove for cosy evenings in. Wood floors continue to the well-equipped kitchen / dining area. Upstairs to the gorgeous double bedroom, with Macintosh mahogany king-size bed, and Macintosh furniture in the separate dressing room. The fully-tiled bathroom is fresh and contemporary. Permit on-street parking, and secure outhouse suitable for bike storage. Location This truly romantic self-catering property in Hawkshead village is an ideal choice for a special occasion or Lake District honeymoon, perfect for exploring Hawkshead village, Beatrix Potter country and Lake Windermere, or simply a luxurious bolt-hole where you'll experience a taste of laid back Lakeland life. To the west of Lake Windermere, Hakwshead's car-free village centre is cute and quaint, with cobbled streets and traditional Lakeland cottages mixed with tea rooms, cosy pubs and local shops. The village is surrounded by wonderful walking territory for all abilities. Manageable walks around Esthwaite Water and Tarn Hows provide quite unforgettable scenery, whereas the more energetic will be tempted by Latterbarrow, Claife Heights or perhaps the Langdale Pikes, which are also within driving distance in the Langdale Valley. Near Sawrey is a small hamlet only a short distance away between Hawkshead and Lake Windermere. The area is renowned for its connections with Beatrix Potter, whose home can be visit at Hill Top. For a wide range of sophisticated shops, acclaimed Lake District restaurants and memorable lake cruises from Waterhead Pier, head north a short distance to Ambleside on the northern shores of Lake Windermere. Also nearby is the excellent Drunken Duck Inn and Restaurant - highly recommended for a special occasion. To experience the hustle and bustle of Bowness, a popular Lake District holiday destination on the other side of Lake Windermere, you only need drive a short distance to the car ferry crossing.  …see more
