A little closer to your retreat you can enjoy family attractions or outdoor pursuits at the famous home of Beatrix Potter, or at the forest at Grizedale, which makes the location entertaining for couples and families alike.

A washing machine and tumble dryer are found in a separate utility room, perfect for outdoor gear after cycling or walking in the Fells. The lounge area has a sofa and chairs, a wood burner, and a Smart TV , perfect for relaxing at any time of the year. Walk through into the stunning sun room with its panoramic views across Esthwaite water. The feature wall length windows make the most of the sunlight whatever the time of year and provides a warm and light space, you can recline on the cosy sofa, read, draw or soak up the views while dining together.
