Small family estate incorporating an idyllic rural retreat one bedroom cottage within the walled Thomas Mawson garden, with bathroom, kitchen and open plan sitting room, and access to roof terrace.

The estate tennis court has just been resurfaced, so please feel free to bring a tennis racket, there are some in the pavilion but they are a bit old! :)

Whether you are walking in the Lakes, cycling in the Dales, or after a spot of bird watching, this cottage is set within the private grounds of a lovely family home and parkland .Peacocks roam free around the garden, and the family are on hand to offer advise on the best places to visit and eat.
