Situated a few miles away from Ullswater Lake and just 1 mile from Aira Force Waterfall, this is a beautiful part of the Lake District. The views from the property are outstanding and the Ullswater Steamers (4.5 miles) offer a great day out. Whinlatter Forest is a 17-mile drive, and there are some great bike tracks here, walking and running trails, the Gruffalo walk which younger members of the family will love and Go Ape for those wanting to get their adrenalin pumping.

As you enter the property which has underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and into the lounge, the first thing you will notice is the views across the fells from the floor-to-ceiling dual windows. After a busy day out and about you can relax on the comfy seating around the cosy wood burner and watch your favourite programme on the TV. Although the property has a modern design and feels there are still lots of lovely original features including beams and a lovely Lakeland stone wall in the lounge. Going through the lounge to the kitchen you will find an electric oven and induction hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer and lovely large island to prepare breakfast or catch up with family while dinner is being prepared. The dining area off the kitchen offers a large table with more magical views of the fells. At the rear of the property, there is a practical lobby area where you can store your shoes and coats after a day of exploring. There is a utility area with a washing machine and tumble dryer and a wet room with a shower and WC. From the kitchen, head upstairs to the first floor where you will find three spacious bedrooms one king-size, one bunk bedroom and a further king-size with an en-suite wet room with a shower and WC. There is also a family bathroom on the landing between two bedrooms with a shower over bath, WC and bidet.

Outside there is a nice patio area with seating and charcoal BBQ. This is the perfect space to dine alfresco in the evening or sit out and watch the sunset with a glass of wine. There is private parking to the front of the property for two cars.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
