Beautiful first-floor apartment in a beautiful country house, located in the village of Far Sawrey and enjoying easy access to scenic walks.

Boasting some fantastic views across to Lake Windermere, this first-floor apartment enjoys a superb location in the peaceful village of Far Sawrey. Sleeping five people across three bedrooms, and with one dog welcome to join you too, this is an idyllic spot for a family holiday. Winding footpaths leading from the front door to some of the Lake District’s most popular sites, make this a great choice for outdoors lovers, while complimentary access to the Burnside Spa in Bowness is also included.

This pretty apartment is located up a staircase within a grand country house, offering elegant accommodation with many period features. The open-plan living area is a sociable space with a large bay window providing spectacular countryside views to the mountains beyond. Settle down onto the comfortable sofas and enjoy a family film, while budding chefs whip up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen. Tired hounds will enjoy stretching out in front of the open fire, which can be found in the kitchen area. Recharge those batteries with a restful night’s sleep in the three relaxing and calming bedrooms. Those lucky guests waking up in the master bedroom will be treated to that wonderful scenery, too. Outside you’ll find plenty of spots to sit in the extensive shared gardens, while the dog has a roam.

Follow the footpath which leads from the apartment to the summit of Claife Heights, which has a purpose-built viewing platform with superb views of Lake Windermere. If you love the water, hop on a pleasure cruise across the lake. The local pub is a short walk away if you don’t fancy cooking, while there are also some fantastic places to eat and drink in popular Hawkshead, 3 miles away. Have a go on a Segway at Grizedale Forest (3 miles), which is packed with some lovely woodland trails.

Perfect apartment in such a good location! Had eveything we wanted to do within a short drive. The apartment was lovely and cosy, could do with a bit of modernising but it did give character to the apartment. The view from the windows were amazing every morning and then sunset was perfect in the evening!

A stunning property set in a beautiful, restful and tranquil location. Lots of home comforts and entertainment for the kids on a wet day e.g. a cupboard full of games and puzzles and Netflix. Having complementary access to the Burnside Spa was a real bonus especially on the wet days. We discovered several great walks right from the door. A very shoRead morert stroll to a great little pub serving delicious food with a lovely view. I simply loved the views from the property across the hills and Windermere Hide

This is a lovely apartment with fantastic views. Nice and clean, warm and comfortable - would heartily recommend for a peaceful break. Not recommended for disabled or elderly wanting to walk roundabout though due to the hilly terrain and steep access to the property. However, very restful overall and would definitely rebook.

Lovely old property set in attractive grounds with a view of lake Windermere. The general location was perfect. There was easy access to local hikes as well more famous walking close by. The chef at the local pub, a short walk from the property, was excellent, so we enjoyed superb meals after our hikes.

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.
