First-floor apartment in 40-acres of grounds on the shores of Esthwaite Water, a short drive from the village of Hawkshead.

Offering stunning views of Esthwaite Water, a fantastic fishing lake and inspiration to Wordsworth, this charming apartment, which has been converted from a quintessential English country estate house dating back to the nineteenth century, could not be more appealingly situated. 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.

This charming first-floor apartment is accessed via a private walkway from the back of the house. On entering you will find yourself in the attractive lounge/diner. The lovely and elegant lounge offers a beautiful view and is complete with TV, DVD and video, making it an ideal spot for relaxing. The dining area is ideally situated close to the stylishly designed kitchen area, which is equipped with everything you might need during your stay including electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge. Exploring further, you will find a comfy double bedroom with en-suite bathroom comprising shower over the bath and WC.

Stepping outside, you can enjoy the glorious views and the beauty of the landscaped gardens and surrounding woodlands.

We enjoy the quiet, the location, views and friendly warden at this property

We had a great week and the accommodation was fine. Whilst the dcor was a bit tired and dated it all worked well enough the location, views and grounds more than made up. We would certainly not hesitate to book it again.

Location is brilliant quiet and relaxing but close enough to Hawkshead for meals and all local amenities. The grounds to the house are fantastic well looked after by Alan and Patrica. The house offers some lovely little extras such as the rowing boats and the golf as well as a very useful drying room and the milk man.

The apartment was very comfortable, set in beautiful grounds and had a wonderful view from the lounge however the bathroom in particular would benefit from being updated. It is a mile to the nearest shop in Hawkshead There are also quite a number of steps to climb to get to the apartment so care needed in wet weather.

Very pleasant cabin and would stay there again. Take note of the large number of steps to access the property if steps are a problem for you ( fine for us).

The location was wonderful, the warden was very friendly.

A small comfortable apartment traditionally furnished. The view from the sitting room of Esthwaite water was fabulous. Everything we needed for our short stay. Very good value.

Although our stay was only for a week, we had a very full and satisfying time. There certainly is plenty to see and do within a reasonable distance, and beyond if one wanted to venture further afield. The view from our lounge/dining room over the lake was superb, breakfasts and dinners were had at the dining room table over-looking the valley and tRead morehe Lake. The condition of the apartment was excellent and all our needs were adequately provided for. The location was superb, away from the tourist hustle and bustle of the Lake District towns, and we were able to drive into the various towns/villages with ease, even though there were many people and traffic in the towns, which is to be expected in holiday season. We would recommend to anyone wanting self catering, relatively private, accommodation in the Lake District to try Broomriggs. It was very easy checking in upon arrival, and we were given plenty of information about the apartment and , indeed, about the area. Thanks for a pleasant base for a good holiday. Hide

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Broomriggs. Pat and Alan the caretakers were very helpful and everything had been done to ensure a relaxing holiday. Information that we received prior to our visit was very informative and although I have stayed at Broomriggs before we would have found the property without any difficulty with the informatRead moreion that was provided. There was plenty of information in the flat but I did update some of it as some of the leaflets were quite old. The apartment was very clean and I thought good value for money. Hide

A cosy, comfortable flat for two in the wonderful location. Broomriggs has its own beautiful grounds and Alan, the house manager, is very helpful. Access from the iron bridge is not easy in wet weather but we had a very enjoyable stay.
