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 Windermere & Central Lakes

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.

Oustanding property in all respects

  • 5 of 5

This is without doubt the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. The warm welcome we received made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. The quality of the accommodation made it a 'home from home' for the entire week. We have enjoyed better weather in previous trips to the Lakes but we have never had such outstanding accommodation. We simply cannot recommend it highly enough.

A home from home - Just wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

Another fantastic week at the Coppice.

What can we say that hasn't been said before - we could mention the wonderful hosts, the spotlessly clean, toasty cottage, the location, the views, the great walks from the door, the list is endless, but don't take our word for it, try it for yourself, you won't be disappointed.

Thank you Gill and Geoff X

Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

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.
