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. The property enjoys private lake frontage, perfect for watching the sunset over the mountains. You can also explore approximately 40 acres of gardens and woodlands.

Lovely old building in a quiet location. Easy parking and well maintained grounds and gardens to enjoy.

A really comfortable, well equipped property. The living/dining area was very spacious with fantastic views of Esthwaite Water. The grounds and garden areas were idyllic and well looked after. Great to sit outside in the evening and look over the Lake. The private access to the Lake had a pic!nic table, and we made full use of the private flowing bRead moreoats. Hide

The location of the property is stunning and it does feel like a very special place as you travel along the winding driveway up to the house. The gardens and grounds are very well cared for and the warden Alan was very helpful on our arrival. Also the view down to the lake is beautiful. I would stay again but would choose a different apartment.

The apartment is in a beautiful location about a mile outside of Hawkshead but up a very step gradient. It is peaceful with a beautiful view from the lounge window and provides a good base for exploring the area. The apartment is clean, comfortable and perfect for two people.

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.
