Description Enjoying lovely views to Latterbarrow and being just a few hundred yards from the centre of beautiful Hawkshead, this three bedroomed end of terrace cottage includes a parking space and enjoys superb access to a wide variety of delightful walks.

The bright accommodation comprises an entrance porch, an open plan living room/ kitchen, 3 bedrooms, shower room, and parking. The perfect family home, weekend retreat or holiday let in the most picturesque of villages.

It is never easy to find a welcoming cottage which is both conveniently close to the centre of any of the Lake Districts prettiest villages and yet also enjoys lovely fell views. Harder still to locate one which also has its own parking space.

Superbly placed, just a short level stroll away from the heart of the beautiful village of Hawkshead which is blessed with a wonderful array of superb traditional Lakeland Inns, charming cafes and a variety of shops all arranged around picturesque little alleyways and cobbled yards, this quirky cottage with its hexagonal footprint also enjoys delightful views to Latterbarrow. A bright and attractive end of terrace property, Kings Yard Cottage is equally suited to being the perfect family home, a fabulous "lock up and leave" weekend retreat or as it is now, an idyllic holiday let with Travel Chapter.

The cosy accommodation includes an open plan living room/kitchen on the ground floor, enjoying "double double" aspect (having windows on four sides), therefore being lovely and light, bright and airy, with ample space to cook, relax and dine. The kitchen has integrated oven and grill, a Diplomat 4 ring ceramic hob with extractor over, and a Hoover washer/dryer.There are three bedrooms and the shower room above, with a private car parking space at the rear.

A superb and rare opportunity not to be missed.
