Fabulous converted old school house sleeping eight guests, situated in the fells above the western shore of Ullswater, in the tranquil lakeside village of Watermillock. Delightful private garden, rural views and with direct access to the stunning Ullswater Way walks.
In the lakeside village of Watermillock, above the western shore of Ullswater, you’ll find this spacious and charming four-bedroom converted schoolhouse. Enjoying a peaceful location and stunning rural views, it accommodates up to eight people and two dogs, so the whole family can enjoy a break together. With direct access to scenic walks and with a shop and pub within 1 mile, you’ll have everything you need for a relaxing break.
This impressive 19th-century property has been transformed into a stylish and comfortable home. The open-plan living space is light and airy, providing a sociable place for guests to relax. Budding chefs will enjoy cooking up a storm on the traditional AGA in the kitchen area, while the large dining table is a focal point for meals. There’s plenty of room for everyone to find a comfy spot to sit in the lounge, where the wood burner provides some added cosiness in the evenings. For those looking for a quiet retreat, the second lounge has a sofa and recliners for putting your feet up, along with an upright piano for the musically minded. Upstairs, the four inviting bedrooms - two king-size and two twins - all have a restful ambience, while those still not ready to sleep will enjoy a game on the football table. Guests young, old, and on four legs, will love exploring the private gardens with lawns, a lily pond and woodland area.
A few hundred yards away, join the scenic Ullswater Way, a 20-mile path that circumnavigates the lake. Break up the route by hopping on the steamer that stops off at different points. For high-level walking, head to the south end of the lake 6 miles away, and the Helvellyn Range. Watermillock itself (1 mile) is great for foodies, with a number of great restaurants to choose from.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
Please note there is a refundable £200 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
