Property code: LLH42
Elegant and spacious single-storey property, close to Near Sawrey, set in a four-acres of gardens, with great views of the surroundings.
This beautiful countryside home-from-home is perfect for a family or friends’ rural retreat. The property sleeps eight guests across four bedrooms, and for those bringing the whole pack it also welcomes four dogs, so your faithful friends can experience the many walks and trails of the Lake District. Set in an idyllic location, enjoy spectacular views of the countryside and Esthwaite Water, and tuck into hearty meals served just down the road at the local inn (0.5 miles). You don’t have to worry about queues for a hot bath or shower after a day spent outdoors, with three bathrooms between you, and for relaxing in the sun you only have to step outside to the 4-acre garden.
Charming interiors, filled with eclectic and colourful soft furnishings, create a comfortable space to settle into for your group holiday. Untie boots and shoes in the hall, where you can warm up hands and feet in an armchair by the wood burner-effect electric fire. Take it in turns to prepare meals in the cosy kitchen/diner and as you cook, share stories and discuss ideas for tomorrow, with nibbles and drinks set out on the table for everyone to snack on. After dinner, set the dishwasher off and retire to the lounge. Light the wood burner and curl up on one of the sofas. Choose a book from the shelf, share a large bowl of popcorn with a film on the TV/DVD, or simply bask in peace in front of the large floor-to-ceiling windows, which flood the room with light. Three of the bedrooms are along the corridor in the main house, but the fourth, a twin, can be found in the summer house. It provides additional flexible accommodation, as it comes with its own wet room. In the morning wake refreshed and spend time in the garden. Children will love exploring the lawn to the back of the property, where there is a swing and benches, and the front veranda is a lovely place for an al fresco breakfast. Access to the house is via a quiet track, and there is off-road parking for three cars.
