Local shops and pubs are within walking distance, ensuring you have everything you need for a restful break.

This pretty, two-bedroom home features tasteful, contemporary styling with a real home-from-home feel. The open-plan living space creates a light and airy feel, without losing any of its cosiness.

The king-size master bedroom is a lovely light-filled space, thanks to the French doors which give access outside, while the neighbouring twin room is equally as charming. The enclosed sunny patio, which is accessed via the bedroom, is a great spot to enjoy a drink with loved ones at the end of a great day of exploring.

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.
