Cottage was a bit more isolated than I had expected, but was well equipped and quiet. It is very close to Outgate Inn and Hawkeshead is only a couple of miles away. There are walking tracks close by, but a survey map is required to know where these go to.
We used the cottage as a base and made trips to Hawkeshead, Coniston, Ambleside and Keswick. We especially enjoyed the lakeside walks.
