Discover the Lake District from your own 17th Century traditional country cottage!
Seemingly take straight from a picture-book, Smithy Cottage At Lindeth immediately catches the imagination as you arrive via pretty country lanes winding through gorgeous green fields. A seamless blend of rural rusticity and contemporary luxury, this is just the place for close friends or a small family to escape to the country and explore the many magical charms of Lakeland.
The white-washed stone entrance porch, surrounded by the prettiest planting, immediately assures you of a cosy country escape at Smithy Cottage, and the interior certainly doesn't disappoint. Warm oranges and autumn browns complement the rustic features of this superb traditional cottage, while the fireplace has an aged solid stone lintel above the comforting wood-burner, so welcome for warming yourselves after a fresh day on the hills. The beamed ceiling, thick stone walls and beautifully tiled floor somehow offer a reassuring feeling of old-world authenticity and solidity.
You will savour every moment you sit out in the courtyard listening to nature quietly going about its daily affairs. There is plenty of wildlife to keep an eye out for here, though you might well feel your eyes closing drowsily in the sunshine!
The back-country to the south and east is a pleasing miasma of bramble-hedged lanes and rolling hills and pasture land, broken by pretty patches of woodland, and your cottage is so well placed for cycling adventures or country walks, and conveniently provides secure storage for your bikes. Meanwhile, bustling Bowness, a popular and energetic little Lakeland town, is nearby with all its engaging charms. The location of Smithy cottage really makes the best of both worlds; your bolthole home-from-home enjoys a superb rural setting just beyond the village fringe, close enough to enjoy the convenience but just removed enough to bask in that sought-after country idyll!
Walks, wildlife, and a warm welcome await you at Smithy Cottage At Lindeth, as well as a perfectly cosy base to help you get to know the Lakes!
