The Pavilion, Applethwaite Hall is one of a small number of beautiful apartments in this superbly restored Arts and Crafts masterpiece. Originally built for the Roberts family by the renowned architect Thomas Muirhead, who designed the pavilions at The Oval and Old Trafford, Applethwaite Hall was completed in 1901 and enjoys views over Orrest Head and The Langdales. The Hall sits in its own private gardens bordered by woods and fields where deer and badgers are regularly seen.
Tucked away behind the shores of Lake Windermere, escape to the Lake District National Park for a luxurious stay with loved ones. Just 1.5 miles from the spectacular Orrest Head Viewpoint, enjoy a morning dog walk to this fantastic scenic spot before returning for a coffee and preparing for the adventures ahead. Sleek, sophisticated style flows throughout this sumptuous home which sleeps four across two rooms, and the dog washing facilities and hallway for leaving muddy boots are handy as you return from the great outdoors.
Descend steps to this fantastic, lower ground-floor abode and marvel at the opulent style and brilliant spacious rooms. Pluck a map from the shelf and put your feet up in the lounge/diner to plan your next adventure. Brimming with natural light, this space has a calming ambience ready to be filled with the sound of the TV, or with laughter and chatter as you raise a toast over dinner. After cooking up a storm in the kitchen (equipped with a coffee machine for those early mornings) and plating up at the table, take a tipple outside and relax on your south-facing terrace, great for soaking up the sun throughout the day. Post-tipple, the family bathroom invites you to enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub, or freshen up in your contemporary en-suite if you’re calling the master bedroom home. Days are made fun by the large garden (shared with neighbouring apartments) and outdoor games such as croquet and Jenga. There is also off-road parking.
Perfectly positioned for enjoying great haunts of the Lake District, stay close to home and explore Lake Windermere, or head further afield and adventure far and wide. A mile from the hub of Windermere, treat yourselves to a meal out or travel a little further to Bowness-on-Windermere (2.5 miles) and book on a dog-friendly cruise across to Ambleside or Lakeside. A plethora of National Trust properties are close to home including Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top (12.4 miles), and the Gothic Revival Wray Castle (9 miles).
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
