Attractive ground-floor apartment in a large country house on the shore of Esthwaite Water and a short distance to many of the Lake District’s most popular sights.

Offering stunning views of Esthwaite Water, a fantastic fishing lake and an inspiration to Wordsworth, this charming apartment, has been lovingly converted from a quintessential English country estate house that dates back to the nineteenth century. Each apartment enjoys magnificent views of both the lake and the surrounding mountain scenery including the Langdales, Coniston and Wetherlam ranges. Hawkshead, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District, is just two miles away. Ambleside, Coniston, Grizedale and Grasmere are within easy reach, and Windermere and Bowness are just a short ferry ride away. With breath-taking scenery and activities for the whole family, including hiking, kayaking, biking and fishing, this idyllic spot guarantees a memorable holiday.

On entering this charming ground-floor apartment you will find yourself in the spacious and welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining area that has been designed to make the most of the fantastic mountain views. The comfortable lounge area is equipped with TV, DVD and Nintendo. Heading over to the modern and attractive kitchen you will find everything you may need including electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. Exploring further, you will find two comfy bedrooms: a king-size double with spectacular views, and a cosy twin. There is also a spacious bathroom complete with shower over the bath and WC.

Stepping outside, you can enjoy the glorious views and the beauty of the landscaped gardens and surrounding woodlands. The property enjoys private lake frontage, and rowing boats are available for guests to use. You can also explore approximately 40 acres of gardens and woodlands. There is also a children’s play area with swings, climbing frame and outside table tennis. There is ample off-road parking available.

Lovely location, very relaxed and welcoming. The little touches like the goody bag upon arrival and some essentials that were provided were really lovely and saved us running to shop the moment we arrived! We loved the view from our window! Would definitely recommend!

We can highly recommend a stay at Broomriggs. My husband, myself and our two boys, 2 & 5 had a lovely relaxing weekend here at the beginning of March. Our apartment was stunning with views over Esthwaite water. It was well heated, quiet & there was lots of room. The recently refurbished bathroom is huge and very luxurious. Alan (the warden) & familRead morey were very welcoming and the house & grounds are simply stunning with a lovely play park for the children. I could have spent all day looking through my binoculars at the lake. However we were here for The National Trust Children's book festival at Wray Castle, which is 12 minutes away by car. We cannot wait to come back! Only thing to note is towels are not provided, so don't forget them like I did! The Lakeland Hideaways office in nearby Hawkshead (2mins) rented us some, so all's well that ends well. Hide

The owners of Broomriggs 5 have provided everything necessary for a relaxing and comfortable holiday in a quite exceptional and secure setting. Alan, the estate manager, maintains the beautiful grounds and is on hand to provide advice should it be needed. The location half way between Sawrey and Hawkshead means a range of shops and pubs are just aRead more few minutes drive away. We used Booths supermarket in Windermere which has an excellent range of very good food and wine. For the record it is not possible at present to access Claife Heights directly from the back of Broomriggs which means trying to find a parking spot in Sawrey to walk up to Moss Eccles Tarn, etc. Hide

Just back from a relaxing week at Broomriggs. An excellent base for exploring the local area, and lots to do nearby. The accommodation itself was clean and roomy, with on site facilities such as boating, putting, table tennis and children's play equipment. There is also an on site warden to deal with any problems, and delivery of milk and provisionRead mores can be arranged. The property has views over Esthwaite Water, which was beautiful, and has well-kept gardens. Several pubs and restaurants a 5 minute drive away in Hawkshead - The Sun Inn particularly worthy of a mention for its food. Hide
