The Apartment, Betty Fold description

Holiday home
The Apartment is a welcoming, ground floor holiday property set in the grounds of the owner's art gallery, 1.5 miles from Hawkshead in Cumbria. There are two bedrooms, one with an en-suite, offering accommodation for up to four people. There's also a family bathroom and an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Outside, there is ample off road parking and shared gardens. The Apartment is a charming base from which to discover this spectacular area.

The picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Cars are banned from the village, leaving visitors free to wander the wealth of tiny alleyways, thoroughfares, archways and courtyards between the whitewashed 17th Century houses.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Gas central heating. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, TV with Freeview, DVD, WiFi, selection of books and games. Fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Ample off road parking. Shared gardens with furniture. One well-behaved dog welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop and pub 1.5 miles. Note: There are 8 stone steps leading down to the property's private entrance. Note: There is a small tea room and gallery with occasional opening days and time. The owners cannot guarantee the tea room will be open during any particular booking but the gallery can also open by appointment if the owners are available.

The setting of The Apartment, Betty Fold and the view were superb. The owner was welcoming and very helpful. The garden was wonderful. Everything worked well and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Even the weather was good!

Plenty of space. It is very private but you feel part of a family with very good cultural, musical and local interests. It was great that our dog was welcome.

This apartment is the ground floor of the owners lovely house which was not in anyway a problem as it has its own entrance The lovely couple who own the house are very friendl and welcoming,and offer very useful tips 're where to go locally, but are in no way intrusive and we did feel we had ample privacy . The view from the living area and main bedroom is spectacular, looking out over fields and the vllage of Hawkshead, with views of top of Latterbarrow in the distance We did walk into Hawkshead, but it's a bit of a hill coming back so only the once! It is very easy to access Hawkshead, Tarn Hows and nearby Coniston from Betty Fold, and Windermere and Ambleside are only a short drive away The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable, and very well maintained and clean and it was lovely and cosy to return to after a long walk.We took our dog and we really enjoyed long walks with him,and will hopefully return here in summer months.There is one double bedrooms with ensuite bathroom and shower, and at other side of the living area a second twin bedrooms with own bathroom, so good for 2 couples or a family Great WiFi in this apartment ,which is great as this can often be either non existent or patchy in rental properties in my experience .Plenty of storage space sand clearances,only asm point I know but it helps. I would not hesitate to highly recommend this to anyone who is considering a Cumbrian break, we were there during the awful weekend of the floods and although Betty Fold and Hawkshead were thankfully not flooded the owners were so very helpful and reassuring about which routes to take and places to avoid.Lovely people and.a lovely apartment .
