A quaint holiday cottage lovingly updated to create a cosy retreat for up to four people, situated in the village of Bouth and close to both Lake Windermere and Coniston Water.
Situated at the end of a small row of 17th century cottages. The front door opens directly into the kitchen/diner, an attractive country-style room.
A doorway from the kitchen leads into the hallway, which in turn leads on to the lounge, a wonderfully cosy room with its beamed ceiling and warming open fire around which are clustered a selection of inviting chairs and a sofa, perfect for curling up with a good book, or catching up with a favourite programme on the TV/DVD.
Returning back to the hallway, guests will pass a small writing desk on the way up the stairs to the bedrooms on the first floor.
The first of these is a cosy king-size room, whilst the second is a pretty twin room with 2’6” beds.
The bathroom, meanwhile, can be found on the ground floor of the cottage and offers a shower-over-bath and WC.
Outside is the gravelled courtyard leading to the sunny, spacious, grassed garden, with meadow views and perfect for a barbecue.
The Garden Room is a delight. Beautifully crafted the double doors open out to the garden, this relaxing space has been attractively finished in a sleek contemporary style, and can even be used in the winter thanks to the wood burner, making this a fantastic year-round retreat.
There is garden furniture and a BBQ provided to help guests to make the most of the outside space, and there is parking for two cars.
We had a lovely time at Kiln Cottage. It is very well located, away from the main tourist areas but very convenient for accessing all the main attractions. 15 min far form Ulverston where we did our shopping and filled the tank. The cottage has a traditional, cozy, romantic character but with all modern appliances. We loved coming back to it after spending all day visiting the lakes. Its also 2 min walking distance from the White Hart pub which offers excellent food. We will come back!

This property is situated in the small Lake District village of Bouth, just 4.5 miles from the southern shore of Lake Windermere and 5.5 miles from Coniston Water, two of the region’s best-known and best-loved lakes, offering everything from leisurely cruises to thrilling watersports.
There are also many scenic walks to be had around the edge of the lakes, as well as more challenging hikes and climbs in the fells and mountains.
Those with an interest in culture and history are well-catered for in the area too, with Beatrix Potter’s home, Hill Top, being just one of numerous National Trust properties located within easy reach of the property.
