Stunning ground-floor apartment nestled in the Lake District countryside, with views to take your breath away over the lake.

Escape to the land of Beatrix Potter where this home from home boasts spectacular views across Esthwaite Water. Sleeping five guests across three bedrooms, gather family, friends and fellow explorers and enjoy your fantastic surroundings before returning home to relax in style by the open fire.

Sitting proudly amid 40 acres of verdant garden and woodland, this welcoming bolthole is perfect for those with a love for the great outdoors. After long days exploring, bubble the evening away in the bathtub to rejuvenate your muscles and freshen up for an evening of fun or a film night. Brimming with natural light and with a bookcase stacked high with tales to delve into, the lounge offers a great space in which to spend time with of cup of tea, a glass of something cold or to enjoy some peace and quiet. Snuggle up on the pair of sofas before tucking into a hearty meal at the dining table which shares the space. Before heading out to adventure, a big breakfast is a must, with ample space to rustle up something delicious, the light kitchen is equipped for all occasions so you can throw together tasty picnics and cook up three-course feasts on your return home from the outdoors. Drift off in one of three lovely bedrooms, all of which boast views either across the lake or out towards the woodland so you will wake up and be reminded of your fabulous location. Enjoy an al fresco coffee by the water, accessed via a private grassy area, and let little ones play in the play area to start the day. There is ample off-road parking and an electric car charging point.

Just a mile from the quaint, fascinating abode of Beatrix Potter, visit the National Trust’s Hill Top and roam the seemingly untouched rooms and pretty garden. Stay close to home and hire a boat at the Hawkshead Trout Fishery Boat House (2 miles) to take out on the stunning waters of Esthwaite or travel 4 miles to the viewing station at Claife Heights for gorgeous views across Lake Windermere.

Excellent accommodation with lovely views in a quiet peaceful location. The thoughtful provision of a powerful telescope in Broomriggs 3 allowed observation of the ospreys nest to the left across the lake through the open window.

Very good front room and fair sized kitchen, comfortable and roomy apart from the rear beds, which also suffer a bit from lack of storage space if you are avid walkers and cyclists as we are.

This is a lovely apartment and great value for money, I would recommend this place and definitely return should the opportunity arise. There are parts of the apartment which require some attention and the back double and single room don't appear to get much sunlight, this did not spoil our holiday. The apartment is big and the back double and singlRead moree room have their own hall way and bathroom which is bonus. Walking distance to Hawkshead and Tower Bank Pub/Beatrice Potter in other direction . Hide

The flat is very spacious and has lovely views and the grounds are delightful. Walks straight out the back and boats to take out on to the lake. Sadly the flat was let down with maintenance issues which had either not been identified or not been fixed. Add to that noisy building work in the flat above that we were not told about in advance.

Our fifth time in flat 3 but our 20th at Broomriggs. Comfortable accommodation in a good area for exploring the Lakes and walking. Plenty parking, well kept gardens and splendid views from the terrace if you just want to stay put. Lots of walks nearby without having to drive too far and some from the house. Helpful caretaker.
