This luxurious lakeland cottage enjoys a superb setting in a country courtyard near the southern tip of Lake Windermere. Rolling green countryside and wooded valleys circumscribe your tastefully converted Lakeland barn, and peace will be a natural part of your Lakelovers holiday here.
Formerly cobbled, and having links with a local monastery, the character of this rustic courtyard is still very much evident, and the lovely woodlands surrounding the cottages are magnets to all manner of wildlife. Some of the deer have gradually become virtually tame!
Inside Abbots Reading Cottage, the old world meets the new, and comfort is the watchword. The beautifully vaulted ceiling and wooden beams of the living area are complemented by luxurious leather sofas, and you will enjoy your time unwinding together here. You'll look forward to cosy meals in the well-designed farmhouse kitchen-diner, and both sumptuous cottage bedrooms have wall-mounted flat-screen televisions and ensuite power shower rooms to complete your relaxation.
When you are not content simply relaxing in your luxurious lakeland barn, the ponds and natural woods of Abbots Reading offer an environment that soothes the soul and rejuvenates the senses. Further afield, the whole of the southern Lake District is spread out before you, and Lakeside nearby has a pier that lets you board the famous steamers that cruise lake Windermere. You can visit bustling Bowness and Ambleside to the north in the most dreamy way possible!
The countryside around you is full of wonderful walks, and charming country inns are everywhere. Abbots Reading Cottage is the ideal choice of holiday home with that touch of luxury!
