This handsome property offers a touch of grandeur in a peaceful and romantic setting.
Situated at the far head of the Kentmere Valley parallel to the Troutbeck Valley, this is a protected and unspoiled area of natural beauty, popular among walkers yet incredibly peaceful. From the village of Kentmere, follow the track that leads to a splendid collection of mountain tops including Thornthwaite Crag, Froswick, High Street, Mardale Ill Bell and Harter Fell. The nearby village of Staveley boasts a 1388 church, a range of shops and a few inns offering restorative hearty meals. A three mile drive from here will take you to the linked towns of Bowness and Windermere, where you can jump aboard a steam boat, browse the independent shops or simply sit back and enjoy the spectacular view of iconic Lake Windermere.
A private entrance opens into a small hall where you can leave walking boots and coats before continuing through to the welcome sitting room. Decorated in soft neutral tones and filled with natural light through large sash windows, this room is light and airy by day and cosy and warm by night when the wood burner is roaring away. Enjoy meals with a view at the small dining table in the window before settling down to enjoy a good film. The kitchen is compact yet well-equipped and opens onto the rear garden. Upstairs, the bedroom is spacious and elegant with a luxurious king-size French antique style bed, en-suite shower room and delightful coffee table from which to sit and admire the inspiring mountain view.
Outside, the communal grounds offer plenty of space for all guests to enjoy. Dine on the terrace overlooking the valley or find a shady spot to relax with a good book on the grassy banks.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
