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.

An absolute delight in terms of location. Truly peaceful and relaxing. Stunning views from and all around and lovely walks to do from the property. The garden was lovely and blissful to sit and hear the birdsong. Definitely a place to go and unwind and switch off.

This is a splendid location with amazing views and quiet compared to the other more touristic side of the lakes. Close to beatrix Potter and wonderfull village of Hawkshead.
