A former Besom store, this traditional whitewashed cottage is perfectly positioned to explore the popular Lakeland villages of Ambleside, Grasmere, Coniston and Keswick, as well as the quieter corners and beaches of the South Lakeland Peninsulas and West Lakes including, Grange-over-Sands, Cartmel and Arnside.

    Just a short walk from April Cottage is Gummers Howe, one of the Lake District’s top ten picturesque picnic spots, whilst a host of woodland walks and cycle tracks lead directly from the cottage up into the surrounding fells to offer stunning panoramic views. The nearby, quaint market town of Ulverston, teeming with eclectic, independent shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants and with entertainment for all ages, is only 4 miles away by car. There are also days out at the Lakeside Aquarium, traditional steam train experience at Lakeside and Haverthwaite, and the popular South Lakeland Zoo which are also just a short drive away.

    Beatrix Potter fans will find plenty to interest them at her home at Far Sawrey, near Hawkshead and at The World of Beatrix Potter at Bowness-on-Windermere, whilst art and poetry lovers will adore the delightful Dove Cottage at Grasmere, which was home to William Wordsworth, and the beautiful house and gardens of Brantwood at Coniston, which was home to John Ruskin. After a busy day splashing on the water in boats, hiking over the fells or cycling through Grizedale Forest, snuggle up by the fire and enjoy a cup of cocoa at April Cottage, or head out to the lovely pub close by for a sumptuous meal and drinks on the banks of the River Leven. Beach 7 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant within a mile.

    Had the best time at April cottage. The surrounding area is stunning as very easy do lots of walks from the doorstep. Especially fell foot national trust park was a surprise bonus! The cottage itself is beautiful and really tastefully decorated so everyone can feel at home. We found everything we needed was supplied and well as welcome extras such as plenty of blanets and books about the local area. The only thing that is worth noting for parents of young children is that the second bedroom is downstairs and there are a few steps as well as the main staircase in order to get to the bathroom and master bedroom. It was fine for us but perhaps would not be as suitable for families with young children who would struggle with the steps in the dark. Other than that everything was perfect and we can't wait to return!

    A very quaint cottage in an ideal location. Beds were very comfortable! No phone network for EE, which was a bit of a let down but that’s due to the area! WiFi was ok but again due to the area was not amazing! A quiet area and locals were welcoming!

    A lovely cottage in an excellent location. We have stayed at many cottages and have always received a welcome pack, and a few flowers which is gratefully received, even if only a pint of milk and a few tea bags. Unfortunately April Cottage offered nothing.

    Loverly relaxing Cottage, In good location for the Southern Lakes, plenty of pubs and hotels for eating within 5 minutes in the car. Only downside was no garden and the parking on the roadside. This didn't spoil our holiday. We had an enjoyable stay, We would use this cottage again and also recommend.

    April Cottage is great for a quiet relaxing break and in a good location for a drive to other Lake district locations. The only downside was we thought the cottage needed a deep clean and the carpets made the cottage feel dark.
