Great Hartbarrow Farm Cottage
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This 17th century Westmorland 'longhouse' is what we'd describe as a dream Lake District holiday home. Elegantly refurbished to 5 star luxury, unforgettable for its 'olde worlde' charms and part of a picture-postcard rural scene - overlooking the lush Lyth Valley, a mile from the acclaimed Mason's Arms at Strawberry Bank only a few miles from the shores of Lake Windermere. Rich in character with old oak beams and deep silled windows, woodburning stove and pretty latch doors, the spacious accommodation provides ample breathing space for a family or even 3 couples. You'll find 3 stunning king-size bedroom suites, elegant dining space and plenty of corners for retreating with a good book - including garden, patio and pretty sun terrace.

This luxury Lake District holiday cottage takes an enviable rural location; overlooking the serene Lyth Valley but still only a few miles from shops, restaurants, pubs and Lake District family attractions in Bowness.
To the east of Lake Windermere the Lyth Valley's peaceful landscapes provide a quieter alternative to the hustle bustle of popular Lake District holiday destinations such as Bowness and Ambleside. The valley is renowned for its wonderful walking, down quiet leafy lanes or up onto the fells to overlook Lake Windermere. The famous Gummers How walk begins only a short drive from your door and promises one of the finest lake views in the Lake District from its manageable summit. It's also perfectly followed by a meal at the Mason's Arms at Strawberry Bank - one of several acclaimed Lake District country pubs nestled in the valley.
For family entertainment, sophisticated shopping and lively nightlife you're only a few miles from Bowness village. You'll also find family entertainments such as the World of Beatrix Potter, mini golf by the lake, hire boats and row boats in the bay, and the opportunity to take a cruise on one of the Windermere Lake steamers. Windermere Golf Club is within easy reach on the outskirts of Bowness.
From your holiday cottage in the Lyth Valley, you'll easily explore the rest of the Lake District by joining up to the famously scenic A591 at Windermere village - just a couple of miles north of Bowness.

The Heart of England/Peak District
The Lake District is a place like no other. No other region in the world is so packed with such varied and stunning scenery in such as small area– and it's all on your doorstep with easy access by car or rail. The choice of outdoor activities is endless with some of the best walks, climbs and bike rides in the world, beautiful lakes for sailing, canoeing, windsurfing or just a cruise one of several ferry services. The National Park itself encompasses soaring mountains, native woodland (you might see a red squirrel!), lush meadows and of course the many famous lakes themselves. Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, Ruskin and many more have been inspired by the Lake District and made their homes here. The homes are still here and open to visit and they too are surrounded by majestic mountain panoramas. There also some surprises – kids will love attractions such as the giant i-max screen at Rheged Visitor Centre, Go Ape aerial activities in Grizedale Forest and The World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness. And where better to stay than a classic Lakeland Cottage. Lakelovers have over 400 properties in prime locations within the heart of the Lakes and we specialise in hand-picked properties that we know you'll love. Whether you want a grand property for a family gathering or a cosy bolt hole for two we can't wait to show you what we have for you to choose from. We know The Lakes inside out and we are just a click of a mouse or a phone call away.
