Voted by The Times in 2020 as ‘One of the best places to live by the sea’, Arnside is located at the southern tip of Cumbria and the Lake District in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Set within 2.5 acres of private grounds leading to the seafront, the apartment is within a Grade II-listed Georgian ‘Gentleman’s Residence’ built-in 1818; Ashmeadow House was fully restored and developed into luxury flats in 2021. There is direct access to the beaches and it’s only a few minutes’ walk into the village with its seafront parade of independent shops, cafes, art galleries, two pubs, village stores, a chemist, bakery, Victorian pier, and Arnside’s famous fish and chip shop. Enjoy walks directly from the house and grounds including Arnside Knott and Jenny Brown’s Point which have recently featured in BBC programmes. Within easy driving distance are the Southern Lakes villages of Grange-over-Sands and Cartmel (15 miles), as well as the main Lake District National Park (8 miles) and Yorkshire Dales (20 miles).

Located on the first floor, this apartment has the feel of a boutique hotel suite and is filled with top-of-the-range furniture and fittings, mixed with antiques and the owner’s personal art collection. The open-plan kitchen/living room has two large original Georgian windows and shutters, each with breathtaking views over the bay, perfect for watching the famous sunsets and occasional northern lights. A state-of-the-art, shaker-style kitchen with white quartz worktops includes a double oven, induction hob, instant boiling water tap, Nespresso coffee machine, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. A spacious lounge area includes a four-seater velvet sofa, while antique kilim rugs and cushions add to the boutique hotel look, and a 43” Smart TV allows you to catch up with your favourite shows in comfort. The dining area has seating for two and is designed to make the most of the views over the bay. Should you need to work from your holiday home, there is an Edwardian desk & 5G Wi-Fi throughout the flat. The master bedroom has a king-size bed with sea views, a built-in wardrobe, and a 40” Smart TV. Modern touches include wall-mounted reading lights and USB charge points in the wall sockets. To complete the accommodation, there is a shower room with a shower and WC with the comfort of underfloor heating.

The flat has an allocated parking space plus a private guest car park; an electric car charge point is due to be installed by summer 2022. Included in the private grounds is a bike shed with allocated rack space for guests to bring two bikes, and shared garden seating overlooking the sea.

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.
