First-floor apartment enjoying a prime location in a country estate house, surrounded by 40 acres of grounds on the shore of Esthwaite Water.

This pretty first-floor apartment is situated within a stunning former country house and enjoys a wonderful location overlooking Esthwaite Water. Surrounded by 40 acres of gardens and woodland, it offers airy and light accommodation for four people, making it perfect for small families or couples. Guests can enjoy private lakeside access during their stay, opening up plenty of walking opportunities, while the on-site children’s playground will prove popular with younger guests.

With traditional furnishings and warm decor, this property has an inviting and homely feel. The open-plan living space is a welcoming place to rest at the end of a busy day of exploring. Sink down into the comfortable seating and pop on the electric fire to keep everyone toasty on chillier evenings, before whipping up a tasty snack or meal in the cottage-style kitchen. The two cosy bedrooms, one featuring a balcony, are both en-suite and are tastefully decorated with your rest and relaxation in mind. Stepping outside, let the children loose in the on-site play area which includes outdoor table tennis and pitch and putt golf. Meanwhile, relax in the shared grounds which feature many places to sit and soak up the peace and tranquillity.

Esthwaite Water is one of the region’s quieter lakes, making it perfect for gentle strolls and rambles. For a day on the water, head to Lake Windermere (4 miles) or Coniston Water (6 miles) where you can try out different water sports or simply relax on a pleasure boat. The popular village of Hawkshead is just over 1 mile away and is a super place to meander, with tearooms, independent shops and great local pubs.

Flat 7 has a superb view of Esthwaite Water and with the balcony this makes it my favourite flat at Broom Riggs. If you want somewhere quiet to relax this is the right place, however, if you want a base to be able to go walking, then this is also the right place. There is a nice, easy going walk from the rear of the property to Moss Eccles Tarn whiRead morech doesn't take long and does not involve any strenuous walking. For the more adventurous there are a huge variety of walks within 15-20 minutes drive Hide

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.
