About the property

Cottage in Hawkshead, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Peaceful Location, With Stunning Views

A luxury 1 bedroom cottage,refurbished and regularly upgraded, in the grounds of Rough Close House, separated from the main house by a court yard. Accommodation is for 2 adults only. There is ample, easy parking. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the gardens and may also spot the Ospreys which have been visiting Esthwaite Water over the last three years. Their nest can be seen from the Coppice lounge, they usually stay between April and the end of August. We hope they visit again in 2017. The property is ideally placed for activities ranging from walking, mountain biking, fishing, or sight-seeing. Whichever you choose we hope you will enjoy your stay at the Coppice.

About Gill & Geoff Barton

Gill and Geoff Barton are the new owners of Rough Close House and Coppice.

Having recently retired, we are excited to be able to live in the heart of the Lake District in a beautiful location. We have worked in the area for over 30 years and have a background in sport and outdoor pursuits, so we know how to enjoy it and where to go, even pubs and coffee shops!

Gill & Geoff Barton purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Gill & Geoff Barton chose England

Knowing the Lake District very well we looked over the whole of the area before choosing Rough Close because of it's fantastic setting between Grizedale forest and Esthwaite Water. It is a beautiful location in any weather and at any time of year.

What makes this cottage unique

It is quiet and picturesque, yet very close Hawkshead and central to some of the Lake Districts' finest and most famous visitor attractions. The Coppice has been luxuriously updated and will certainly help you to make the best of your stay in the Lake District.

Stayed for three nights from 12 Feb 17.

The cottage is in a lovely location with easy access to Ambleside and the surrounding area. Inside, the cottage is spacious and bright with lounge windows giving lovely views of Esthwaite water and beyond.

Owners, Geoff and Gill were very friendly and helpful and the welcome basket was much appreciated. A lovely cottage, would highly recommend.

Second visit and just as good as the first.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at The Coppice with the superb owners Gill and Geoff, our first visit having been in October 2015. This really is a fabulous cottage being spotlessly clean comfortable furnished and with fabulous views from the lounge windows. It is well positioned for Hawkshead village for pubs and restaurants and is central for visiting other parts of The Lakes, although we did the majority of our walking straight from the front door. I can recommend The Coppice for a fabulous stay.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Superb property in perfect location. The accommodation did what it said on the tin. Warm, welcoming - a perfect base for exploring the scenic beauty of the lakes. A wonderful welcome pack was much appreciated as was Geoff's local weather & tourist advice. We will certainly be returning, hopefully later this year.

An absolute gem!

  • 5 of 5

The Coppice is an absolute gem with spacious and comfortable accommodation and spectacular views over Esthwaite water.

Gill and Geoff are perfect hosts and provided everything we needed for a relaxing holiday including delicious home baking and other treats. They have a wealth of knowledge about the local area and can offer advice on walks and restaurants.

This is our second stay at the Coppice and won't be the last! We even got to see the Ospreys... amazing!

A Fabulous Property in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at the Coppice and met Geoff & Gill we knew we were going to have a great holiday. They are warm and friendly people and the location is absolutely stunning, with a view from the lounge window out towards the lake. We were too late in the year to see any ospreys but we did see an owl one evening just as it was going dark. The Coppice is beautifully decorated and furnished throughout with a large bathroom. We managed to do walks each day without using the car, straight out of the drive and head into Hawkshead where most local walks begin. We have already booked again for next year, it is really that good.
