Enjoying a rural location among three acres of landscaped gardens and being tastefully designed, this property is just perfect for couples looking to get away and enjoy Cumbria throughout the year.

The most idyllic ground-floor apartment for solo escapes and romantic breaks, this two-person, one-dog retreat will leave you starry-eyed. Located within a private estate surrounded by 3 acres of landscaped gardens, it will appeal to all those looking for a splash of opulence during their wilderness break. A whole plethora of amazing doorstep-walks, and only 0.5 miles from a popular local pub, you can explore, eat, walk and relax to your heart’s content.

 

Entering up some steps and through the grand hallway, you will immediately get a feel for this property’s regal vibes. Tastefully styled into a studio-style apartment, your home-from-home features an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner and a sleeping area with a large bay window affording beautiful views. Ensuring everything you could need and more for your daily routine is provided, the well-equipped kitchen has ample cooking appliances and implements, while a dining table awaits for plates and palaver. In the evening, you can sit back in the lounge area with a book or film, before turning in for the night. Particularly cosy, the sleeping area features an open fire, providing extra warmth in the winter.

 

Outside, you can spend long hours exploring the extensive shared gardens, with the option of picking up the footpath that leads directly from the grounds to Claife Heights – a picturesque viewing station originally built in the 1790s.  The National Trust-run Hill Top, the former home of Beatrix Potter, is only 1 mile away, while the most famous of England’s lakes, Windermere, is also 1 mile away – both of which are highly recommended sights.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Think carefully before booking this suite. The rooms above have wooden floorboards and sound travels. The first night was almost our last as the talking and walking above us was difficult to take. The cleaning leaves a lot to be desired with dust laden cobwebs from the chandelier and uncleaned tiles behind the toilet. On the plus side location is gRead morereat and room comfortable. Hide

A lovely, well equipped apartment with a homely feel. Very clean and the welcome pack on arrival with milk, tea, coffee and biscuits was much appreciated. The heating was good and even though the weather wasn't great outside we always returned to a well heated room. Beautiful views, shared gardens and only a few minutes walk to nearest pub.

A totally tranquil space to use as a base for walking. Being pet friendly was brilliant, as we always take our dog away with us. The family of deer living in the grounds were beautiful to see everyday. We'd go back in a heart beat. Loved the peace and quiet.

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.
