About Low Hallgarth

A fellside cottage with a famous owner with walks all around and views over Little Langdale.

Stay in this charming fellside cottage, once owned by Lake District devotee, Beatrix Potter. The 17th-century cottage has changed little since it was in her ownership, with the cottage range still providing warmth to its rooms and original exposed beams running throughout. It sits at the end of a row of three properties, with views over Little Langdale Tarn and up the valley to Wrynose Pass.

It’s the ideal base for walking and climbing adventures. Enjoy the low level walks around Tarn Hows or take to the high fells of Coniston or Langdale Valley. Also nearby is the very special Sticklebarn pub. With views of the Langdale mountains, visitors can take their beers outside and warm up against an open fire. They’ll even provide blankets too.

Restaurants, pubs, tea-rooms and shops can be found at Coniston, Hawkshead and Ambleside, just a short drive away.

Notes for guests

Access: The access statement is for guidance only. For up to date photos please those images in the main website page.

Heating: Electric wall heating included. 

Parking: Space is available for a car to the side of the cottages. 

Garden: There is a small area behind the cottage for sitting out. There is a stream running behind the cottage so young children will need to be supervised.

Access: the bedroom and bathroom are on the ground floor but the cottage may not be suitable for wheelchair users.

Please be aware that the approach to the cottage is along a narrow and very uneven track. Low slung vehicles may have difficulty in travelling along this track, especially after rain fall. Responsibility for the upkeep of this track falls with the local council and not the National Trust.

Utilities: Water is supplied from the fell and may be in short supply at certain times of the year. Although the water is treated and regularly checked to meet required standards you may prefer to boil the water before use.

Television/Signal: There is no television as reception is poor in the area. 

Please note: The adjoining property is rented by Yorkshire Ramblers. There may be some late night or early morning noise due to arrivals/departures.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
