We loved being on the first floor with a great view of the lake and, in particular, the glorious sunsets. The grounds are extensive with a mixture of woodland and formal gardens. We really appreciated the tranquility and the proximity to Hawkshead and its facilities.

Of course, the location was great as we were in THE LAKES! The apartment was excellent in every way; we could not have expected, or asked for, more. The caretaker was on hand and was very friendly. Plenty of parking. We would certainly go again.

Very nice location. Comfortable and clean. Although it is an apartment, there was no noise from anyone. Well equipped. The office is nearby for any problems. Could do with the heating on all day in winter, when adverse weather conditions.

What a tremendous place. The views are fabulous, the grounds are great and the apartment is excellent. We liked this place a lot and will hopefully be back again to enjoy its pleasures again. The visitor book is full of praise for the place from people who return year after year which is testament in itself.

My wife had to smoke outside, which is fair. That she was told by the warden to stand at least 5 meter away (in the rain) from the property as the smoke might set of a smoke alarm in the house seem to be a bit over the top.

Well equipped apartment in a great location with fantastic lake views and good value for money. The 20 minute walk to Hawkshead is 70% on the road which has to be taken into account if you have small children and dont want to take the car. Overall great accommodation in well maintained gardens.

We stayed in Hawkshead in the Broomriggs cottages. The accommodation was high standard and the price per week was more than acceptable. The location was absolutely gorgeous and an ideal spot to explore a lot of stunning sights in the lake district.

It is important to note that these are apartments and not individual dwellings. Therefore one has to be considerate of others. Also, whilst the grounds are totally accessible, it is not possible to step out through patio doors for example and relax outside the lounge.

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
