Get the extended family together for a stay in this delightful country house. Sleeping 19 guests in unrivalled comfort, a stay here promises a truly unbeatable Lakelands experience.

Positioned close to the south-western shores of Derwentwater, this elegant property is a must for exciting days out with your large group. Your comfortable accommodation sleeps 19 across ten bedrooms and is well-equipped when it comes to entertaining in style. Two open fires set the scene for cosy film nights snuggled up under blankets, and the garden is a haven for chilled drinks in the sunshine. There’s a wealth of walking trails leading directly from your doorstep, so all you’ll need to do is decide between rugged mountains, sweeping fells or serene lakes for your daily adventure.

Elegant, impressive and exuding Victorian charm, the property is simply presented yet completely comfortable for your stay. Two open fires warm their respective lounges, inviting your group to snuggle down on the sofas and swap stories about their day. Watch films on the TV/DVD or simply admire the views from the windows, watching the world go by as you sip your brew. Mealtimes are an extravagant affair when you put your culinary skills to the test in the spacious kitchen with its triple AGA and array of gadgets. The dining room has enough seating for everyone, so all you’ll have to do is uncork the wine and settle down for a feast. Each bedroom is equipped with a private en-suite for a bonus treat, and you’ll find all six divided between the ground floor and the first floor. Completing the property is a large garden with far-reaching views, and there is ample off-road parking. On the nights you don’t feel like cooking, why not wander down to the nearby hotel, within 0.5 miles, that has a bar and restaurant?

Your visit simply must include a visit to the scenic gems of the Western Lakes as the scenery is astounding. Buttermere, Loweswater and Crummock Water are all reached within 17 miles, and Bassenthwaite lies 11 miles away. If you’re keen to experience Lakeland charm in abundance, Keswick is a delightful market town with an excellent selection of shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes. There is also a popular cinema, a fascinating museum and a well-regarded Theatre by the Lake.

This is one of the best places we have ever stayed as a family. The garden is beautiful. The rooms are comfortable. The kitchen caters for 19 easily. The dining room also held us all in comfort. We would certainly come again.
