Description One glance at the visitors book at this popular holiday let and you will immediately grasp that this is a home which welcomes visitors back time and time again. For some it is the bright and well balanced accommodation which appeals, for others it is those wonderful views. Many love the fact that you can walk into the village for a pint and a meal in one of the wonderful traditional Inns which specialise in award winning locally brewed ale. One thing is certain, everyone adores being able to leave the car on the driveway and not have to trouble it again for the duration of their stay. Not only can you stroll into the village, you can walk from the bungalow to the lake shore, hike the high fells, cycle the many tracks and trails of the district or even sail on the lake if the fancy takes you, and you have the energy of course!
Hazel Cottage is one of those properties which welcomes you in. Its accommodation is bright and well balanced, has been thoughtfully improved and will suit any number of requirements. If you are looking for a family home then there is space for everyone. If you are seeking an easily managed lock up leave weekend retreat, then this is one home which will be very easy to maintain. If it is a successful holiday let you are after, then look no further as the bungalow is currently very popular being let with the local agents Coppermines Cottages (www.coppermines.co.uk/cottages). For those with more than half an eye on retirement, what could be better – a bungalow which not only lets well but will make the perfect home in which to relocate and enjoy a relaxing retirement in superb surroundings.
The accommodation is all on the ground floor with level access and includes a lovely sunny entrance porch which doubles as a little conservatory where you can sit admire the high fells – even if that is only whilst you pull on your hiking boots! This leads on to the entrance hall, beyond which is the sitting room and the adjoining dining room. There is a fitted kitchen and three well proportioned double bedrooms. One has an en-suite W.C. and there is a modern bathroom. The double garage to the side offers potential to further extend the accommodation should you desire (subject to any necessary consents) as there is plenty of car parking provision on the driveway. There are level, pretty gardens and of course wonderful views of Coniston Old Man, Brim Fell, Great Howe Crags and Yew Pike, to name just a few.
This is not one to miss, so arrange a viewing before it is too late.
