Description from owner


Fully renovated, 3-bedroom, lakeland slate, semi-detached cottage. A cosy and comfortable bolt-hole for a maximum of four adults or a family of five with up to three younger children. Peacefully situated amongst beautiful south lakeland countryside, secluded and private, yet only 20 minutes walk to the popular village of Hawkshead with many facilities including supermarket, deli, post office, shops, pubs / restaurants and public transport. Accessed along a quiet, privately owned, narrow, tarmac roadway, with a single lock-up garage (useful for bike storage) and shared drive providing car parking for 1 motor vehicle. The level, south-facing, lawned garden is surrounded by fields, hedges and National Trust woodland, safely fenced off from and raised above the adjacent tarmac roadway . Great for kids, keen walkers and cyclists, and those interested in nature and wild-life.

“Beautiful quiet cottage - perfect location!”

Reviewed 6 Apr 2017

We were greeted by the friendly owner, Geoff, and shown around the cute cottage. ( it's actually a 3 bedroomed semi detached house but feels very "cottagey!) Geoff explained the workings of the well equipped kitchen, heating etc and gave us some top tips on local restaurants. He also left us a great welcome pack including delicious artisan bread! The house is in a very quiet spot and we didn't hear the neighbours at all, despite the other semi being occupied. Gillbank is the perfect location to explore the lower lakes. Ambleside is just a short drive away and Hawkshead is a nice walk down the road. Although the rooms were fairly small, it didn't matter to us at all. In fact in the evenings we lit the wood burning stove in the lounge and it was extremely cosy and warm. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Gillbank and would definitely go back.

“Everything you need in a beautiful location.”
