Escape for a romantic, rural retreat filled with waterside walks and cosy nights in at this renovated barn conversion. Your dog is welcome to adventure by your side and you will arrive to stunning views over the surrounding fells and countryside.

Just 2 miles from the edge of Bassenthwaite Lake, spend time by the water or jump in for a refreshing dip. The quaint, ancient church of St Bega’s is worth a visit and keep your eyes peeled for wildlife including osprey whilst visiting the lake. A 4.5-mile walk, summit Dodd Fell for spectacular, panoramic views and reward your efforts with a treat in the cafe. Mirehouse and Gardens is a lovely spot to spend a quiet morning or an afternoon and is just 2 miles from your door. Or visit the Lakes Distillery (3.5 miles) and stock up on your favourite tipple for a fun date night. If you fancy a date night out, travel 6 miles to Keswick where a host of eateries and bars await.

Head inside this charming barn conversion and ascend stairs to reach your home from home. Find yourself in the open-plan living space where the lounge, diner and kitchen fit together and invite you to make yourselves at home. Choose a comfortable spot in the lounge area and unwind in front of the TV or put on your favourite DVD for a chilled evening in. Exposed beams add character and splashes of colour create a warm ambience. The kitchen area has an electric cooker, fridge with freezer compartment and microwave so you can rustle up meals with ease throughout your stay. Dine together at the table and raise a glass to time spent in this fabulous location. End your day with a soak in the bath or freshen up in the shower in the bathroom with WC before heading to bed. The spacious double bedroom is a tranquil place to rest your head and to wake up in the morning after a peaceful sleep. Boasting lovely views, take a moment to sit by one of the windows in the morning as you sip your tea or coffee. Should you wish to wash clothes, there is a laundry room with coin-operated washer and dryer shared with other properties on site.

Good location with a few good restaurants/pubs within a mile. Good views from the apartment over fields to Bassenthwaite Lake. Although no balcony, the extensive grounds are available to all residents but could do with a few more benches/seating areas. Unfortunately, the grass was getting too long and needed mowing. We last stayed at Parkergate (alRead morethough in a different unit) 9 years ago and we felt the property was in need of some maintenance as it was looking a little tired. Hide

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.
