A first-floor apartment in a beautiful country estate house in an elevated position above Esthwaite Water, and with easy access to local scenic walks and Hawkshead village.
This first-floor apartment is located within a fine former Gentleman’s residence. It enjoys an elevated position, providing stunning mountain views, with grounds that extend down to the edge of Esthwaite Water, surrounded by miles of scenic walks. Wander down to the lake, a perfect spot for enjoying a picnic or making the most of one of the rowing boats. There is also a private path to National Trust land at the back of the property with direct access to Moss Eccles Tarn. The village of Hawkshead is only a mile away, famed for its connections to Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth, with a range of shops, cafes, and pubs.
On entering the apartment, the private hallway provides space to hang coats before entering the open-plan lounge/diner where attention is immediately drawn to the view. The room welcomes guests with its comfortable seating, Smart TV/ Blu-ray, a well-stocked library, and upholstered window seat from where they can enjoy the stunning views over the lake towards the mountains: ospreys are seen frequently. The kitchen is equipped with an electric oven and hob, a small fridge/freezer, and a microwave. There are two bedrooms; both with king-size zip-and-link beds which can be made up as 2'6 twins upon request. Both bedrooms benefit from en-suite facilities, one with a bathroom with a bath, washbasin, and WC, and the other with an en-suite shower room with a shower, and WC.

Younger guests will enjoy the play area, with swings, a climbing frame, and outdoor table tennis tables plus pitch and putt golf.
