Period cottage, stylishly updated to provide a beautiful retreat for two guests, situated on the southern edge of the Lake District National Park, only six miles from Lake Windermere.

This property enjoys a quiet location in the village of Lindale, which lies between the coast at Grange-over-Sands, and the picturesque Lake District. In the village itself there is a village shop, as well as two pubs, whilst a larger range of shops can be found in Grange-over-Sands, some 2.5 miles away. Heading north, through the fells of the Lake District National Park, visitors come to the village of Lakeside which sits on the southern shore of Lake Windermere and from where it possible to take a relaxing cruise around the lake, stopping on the way at Bowness or Ambleside, or perhaps combine the trip with a visit to the Lakes Aquarium or on the trains of the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway.

This property offers a high standard of accommodation throughout and has been thoughtfully styled by an award-winning interior designer, ensuring that the cottage is a true one-off. Stone steps lead up to the front door which opens directly into the lounge area of the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a wonderfully cosy space where a comfortable sofa and armchair sit under the beamed ceiling next to the warming wood burner. There is a Smart TV, as well as a hi-fi and iPod dock, all of which can be enjoyed from the dining area and kitchen, as well as the lounge. Behind the sofa, a rustic dining table sits between the lounge and the well-equipped kitchen where guests will find an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, and dishwasher. The washer/dryer meanwhile can be found in a separate utility cupboard. Open-tread wooden stairs lead from the kitchen area to the double bedroom on the first floor. This sanctuary-like space has been beautifully finished with loving attention to detail, and has its own TV/DVD, perfect for relaxing with a late-night film. Crossing the landing from the bedroom, a dressing room provides plenty of storage space for clothes, beyond which there is a contemporary shower room with a walk-in shower and WC.

There is small garden to the front of the property with bench seating, and one off-road parking space to the rear.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

What a lovely cosy romantic cottage, especially when you get the log burner on! Lovely little touch with the goodie bag, robes and LOccitane toiletries. We had no complaints but some of the comments in the guest book cited having no back garden and no gate on the front if youve got a dog as issues. Would recommend.

2nd time to Lyme Cottage and it was as perfect the second time round as it was on our first visit. Cute, charming, close to the Royal Oak Pub, driving distance to incredible hikes and walks. The perfect hideaway. Will definitely come back for a third visit!

Lyme Cottage is a lovely cottage set in a beautiful quaint village. The village itself provided excellent access to all of the Southern Lakes area. The cottage itself had everything you could ask for including a little hamper bag which was gorgeous! Perfect for a romantic getaway in the Lakes :)

We loved the cottage although it was smaller than it looked from the pictures on the website. It was a nice but not ideal location. However it was well furnished, modern and clean and had everything we needed.

Lovely character cottage in a good location for accessing the lakes. The cottage has everything you need and a great pub at the top of the hill called the Royal Oak and the food is very good there. The home made welcome pack with bread, scones and jam was a lovely touch. Would stay again.

Lovely cottage in a really nice location. Really gave us everything we needed. Royal Oak pub in the village does fantastic food too.

Excellent location for visiting the South Lakes. The property is perfect for couples. It is cosy and well equipped and extremely comfortable.

We had a lovely relaxing break at Lyme Cottage. It was very well equipped and beautifully appointed. The lovely L'occitane bath products and the bread, scones, jam and biscuits were much appreciated. We enjoyed being able to walk to The Royal Oak which served great food. We will probably return for another short break in the future. Thank you

We had a really great holiday; it's a top little spot you have here.. We've had a few breaks in the Lake District over the years but have always tended to head "inland" either to Ambleside or Grasmere out of habit really, but in future this part of the LD is definitely a bit we won't be missing again.
