Hillcroft Cottages description


This terraced holiday cottage is a peaceful retreat and is part of an old farm that was converted some years ago. The cottage has a lovely woodburner, which gives the property a cosy country feel that makes it special. This is the perfect springboard to the Lakes, and if you like your walking, there are many walks from Hatherthwaite up to the Lakes and beyond. Many years ago you would have travelled to Haverthwaite to purchase gunpowder, nowadays you go there for peace and quiet! Haverthwaite is only a few minutes down the A590 from Backbarrow, 4 miles north of Cartmel, and has moved on from its days as an iron, steel, cotton and gunpowder-producing village to become a more tranquil getaway. Haverthwaite is famous the the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway. Running along the line that once transported gunpowder to the dockyards, the railway now carries tourists along the scenic route in traditional, heritage steam trains. Many of the old industrial buildings have been converted into flats or houses, whilst a number of beautiful holiday cottages have sprung up over the years to accommodate the large number of tourists who arrive in the village each year. The village’s history lives on in buildings like the old Gunpowder Works, with its ornate clock tower, and St Anne’s Church, which was built in 1824. A true taste of local life can be found at the local pub, which specialises in real ales, as well as putting on live music and quiz nights. Beach 3½ miles.
