Enjoying a rural location among three acres of landscaped gardens and being tastefully designed, this property is just perfect for couples looking to get away and enjoy Cumbria throughout the year.

The most idyllic ground-floor apartment for solo escapes and romantic breaks, this two-person, one-dog retreat will leave you starry-eyed. Located within a private estate surrounded by 3 acres of landscaped gardens, it will appeal to all those looking for a splash of opulence during their wilderness break. A whole plethora of amazing doorstep-walks, and only 0.5 miles from a popular local pub, you can explore, eat, walk and relax to your heart’s content.

 

Entering up some steps and through the grand hallway, you will immediately get a feel for this property’s regal vibes. Tastefully styled into a studio-style apartment, your home-from-home features an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner and a sleeping area with a large bay window affording beautiful views. Ensuring everything you could need and more for your daily routine is provided, the well-equipped kitchen has ample cooking appliances and implements, while a dining table awaits for plates and palaver. In the evening, you can sit back in the lounge area with a book or film, before turning in for the night. Particularly cosy, the sleeping area features an open fire, providing extra warmth in the winter.

 

Outside, you can spend long hours exploring the extensive shared gardens, with the option of picking up the footpath that leads directly from the grounds to Claife Heights – a picturesque viewing station originally built in the 1790s.  The National Trust-run Hill Top, the former home of Beatrix Potter, is only 1 mile away, while the most famous of England’s lakes, Windermere, is also 1 mile away – both of which are highly recommended sights.

Lovely property with a fantastic view. Good base for walking to Bowness, the ferry is only a mile away. Also, Hawkshead and Ambleside are within walking distance.

A beautiful apartment small but well equipped kitchen, and a good sized bathroom with bath/shower, plenty of hot water. Very quiet, and very relaxing location within easy reach of Windermere and Hawkshead, and only a 10 minute walk down to the Cuckoo Brown pub. Perfect

This was very affordable, in a good location and clean. But kitchen appliances didnt work effectively so not a place for easy self-catering. Also the accommodation lacked privacy people from the car park could see in and anyone in the hall could easily overhear conversation, likewise the dog heard everyone come and go and was frequently disturbed iRead moren the night.

Initial impressions good. Warm and comfortable. Superb location and views. However, lots of improvements are needed. The kitchen is tiny and has minimal usable work surfaces. No oven gloves were provided. Light bulbs in main room were missing, dysfunctional or just dim. The hot tap for bath gives no water (shower is OK). Wood for fire is unseasonedRead more and so wet it would not light. Toilet flush is hit and miss. Internet is very poor (as advertised) - could probably by improved by WiFi boosters Hide

Loved the historical building and grounds. Rather comfortable, but husband found settee too low. (He suffers with his back). Bath lovely and big but had a bit of trouble with hot water tap.

Beautiful suite in part of a large county house. We had a lovely stay in the clean and comfortable apartment. Stunning views from the windows, including rabbits and bats in the garden. A beautiful area to stay, with both the Bowness ferry and Hilltop within walking distance for the fit [steep hills]. This part of the Windermere area is very quiet.

Beautiful traditional apartment in an amazing country house, and the views were the best. We spent good days out walking and wet days in front of the cosy open fire, a perfect combination.
